Media and Society “Walking Utopia” By Bernard Bate In South India, democratic meetings are highly regarded similar to the temple festival celebrations. This is because such meetings debate contemporary social life aspects with suggestions to the typical Tamil literary principle. In this regard, Bate’s (2009) discussions of political meetings in Madurai help people to concentrate on things that affect their daily experiences in the urban settings. The evenings comprise of political and religious discussions that contributed to the establishment of the Dravidian meetings. These were historical events that brought together rural and urban folks in advocating for the plights (Bate, 2009).
The Revolution Will Not Be Televised by Naomi Schiller
Alternatively, Schiller’s The Revolution Will Not Be Televised Documentary discusses the coup d’état that occurred in Venezuela in 2002. It focuses on the interviews with the leading distributors and activists in New York City between 2004 and 2007. As a result, the production and distribution of the documentary shaped debates that facilitated discussions on the medias role in determining the truth. Schiller’s approach of the documentary exposes how the media covered the revolution across the world (Schiller, 2009). For instance, the documentary does not concentrate on the causes of the coup against the Venezuelan President, but the only broadcasted images of proponents firing their guns at the anti-supporters.
