Transcript of Civic Engagement

Civic Engagement-

Horizontal examples •In Britain 79 per cent of Internet users in 2008 had
not read a blog during the last three months (Office of National Statistics, 2008). (Cited in Curran, ‘The Future of Journalism’, Journalism Studies, 6, no.2, 2010, p7.)
My prediction: 42% give or take? •Roughly 75 million Americans
(approximately 37% of adults) went online to get political information during the
election season, ((Rainie, Cornfield, & Horrigan, 2005) (Cited in Xenos & Moy, ‘Direct and Differential Effects of the Internet on Political and Civic Engagement’ Journal of Communication, 57, 2007, p704)
My prediction: 80% give or take? •respondents were asked which party was the more conservative party (69.0% correct- U.S. statistics). (Xenos & Moy, p710) My prediction: 100% Taken from Lawrence, Sides, and Farrell, ‘Self-Segregation or Deliberation?
Blog Readership, Participation, and Polarization in American Politics’, Perspectives on Politics, 8, no.1, 2010
“Boy helps Poi E climb the charts”

“How Key could sign where Clark couldn't”
4 comments ranging from:
“JOHN KEY YOU HAVE LOST THE PLOT THE RANK AND FILE OF NATIONAL ARE ALREADY FEELING BETRAYED. YOU MUST BE DEAF IF YOU CAN'T HEAR THE RUMBLINGS OF DISCONTENT. RACE BASED PRIVILEGE IS TOTALLY, TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE TO MOST NEW ZEALANDERS. INDEED, IT IS EVIL.”
To (from jakethepakeha)
“Good move John Key. You have confirmed my support for you and will continue to get my vote in the future. It is about time National stood for real justice, and recognised that not everyone is monochrome.”

17 comments including:
-“I'll go the other way. ANZAC day means nothing to me. Lest we forget? How about stop trying to remind me. Its just another day off like Easter or Waitangi day.”
-“And the church should not be a tax free haven- Whats up with that?”
And
-“The very idea of a Monday to Friday working week is archaic and obsolete. I work a Monday to Friday, but I am, like everyone, capable of working any day of the week.”

And
“The Japanese Government needs to wake up to stop such bad behaviours. Although I don't trust any political isssue in Japan or Japanese MPs at all, but Hatoyama has to listen to international opinions for whaling.”

1 comment:
“…one can see the truth behind a maxim, some can quantify the price of everything yet fail to understand the value of anything”
"Few students reported watching TV news or reading a newspaper. " "Students in the Maryland study also showed no loyalty to news programs, a news personality or news platform. They maintained a casual relationship to news brands, and rarely distinguished between news and general information. " -Source stuff.co.nz
