Mass Media fuelling Brexit Fears

Good Money management is Key to success

” Many a naysayer, many of which fall under the newsletter writers camp keep pumping the nonsense that all paper money will cease to exist and that everyone will revert to the gold and silver standard in the not too distant future. First of all, they are about 1000 years too late and second of all, they are in sore need of a mental check-up. They forget to take mass psychology into consideration and one must understand that the biggest driving force anywhere is mass behaviour also known as Mass psychology.  The Gold standard did not prevent theft and outright robbery; banker was still known for shaving gold coins and other shenanigans. Nobody in hell including yours truly wants to run around with a heavy sack of gold or silver coins strapped to their necks.  ”  Good Money management-Better Solution than Gold standar

 

Brexit Fears – Mass Media fueling

here’s no point, and perhaps no justice, in shooting the messenger. It’s easy enough for the remains of Remain to blame the Eurosceptic press for what’s happened and what may happen. But remember that Trump, Le Pen, Austria’s nearly president or – from the other end of the spectrum – Podemos in Spain have come so far and done so well without any big media battalions trumpeting their cause.

Naturally the Mail, Express and Telegraph can celebrate. “Take a bow Britain.” They picked the referendum winners. But they also reflected what the majority of their readers thought to begin with: and, in the Telegraph’s case, only veered back to the Leave camp when a poll of subscribers showed 69% of them wanted out. Of course the Sun can pun ritually away about “Brexsplits” – but its great cry to “BeLEAVE in Britain” didn’t make it as far as Belfast or Glasgow.

No, any proper media inquest at the end of Britain and David Cameron’s day can’t survive on simplistic blame games. It has to start with the people who made the decision: readers, viewers, listeners. We know a good deal about them thanks to some background polling (from Ipsos Mori and from BMG Research for the Electoral Reform Society, among others).

Ipsos Mori found 64% of 18-34-year-olds and 58% of 35-54-year-olds backing Remain. It also found 57% of ABC1s (graduates, white-collars) against 45% of C2DEs (manual workers, pensioners, unemployed). A now-familiar tale of two Britains. Full Story

 

Brexit Fears: the EU referendum and international news media

Following the referendum in 2016, the public sphere came alive with fierce debate about Brexit.

A key political actor at the centre of the Brexit debate is undoubtedly the news media. Like the election of Donald Trump, Brexit has fuelled extensive international media interest. Therefore, understanding how Brexit is reported in the UK, the EU and beyond has become a key question for scholars of international political communication.

This post explores that question based on findings from the recent book ‘Reporting the Road to Brexit’, which has 20 chapters examining news coverage of the referendum and the Brexit outcome across 18 global locales, including cases that represent parts of the UK, the European single market, and beyond.

A deeper understanding of how Brexit is represented in international news coverage provides the UK Brexit negotiators with an indication of how Brexit is viewed abroad, which in turn has the potential to enhance the UK government’s strategic decisions amid the negotiations.

The day after the 2016 referendum, BBC News reported a compilation of front pages from a broad range of international newspapers. It suggested that the outcome of the referendum was largely framed around ‘crisis’, and likened to a natural disaster, with the vocabulary centring on words like ‘tsunami’, ‘earthquake’, ‘danger’, ‘catastrophe’, ‘panic’, ‘existential crisis’ and ‘Shakespearean tragedy’.
