Public Broadcasting – Is Public Broadcasting Still Relevant Today?

Script: 

14-year-old Jacob and his older brother Mark are at CBC’s building. It’s Take Your Child to Work Day. Mark and Jacob’s Mother was unavailable, so Mark agreed to take Jacob to CBC where he works. They walk into the building. 

JACOB: Hey, thanks for taking me here. 

MARK: Yeah, no problem! It’s too bad mom was busy. 

JACOB: They should probably change this to “Take Your Family Member to Work Day”. 

MARK: (Laughs) Yep. 

They’re standing in the lobby now. There’s a sign on one of the walls, Jacob goes to look at it. It says: 

As a public broadcaster, our goal is to provide entertaining, enlightening and informative programming for the Canadian public. We value diversity in all aspects of our work, and we are committed to representing that diversity through the many concepts and stories portrayed in our content. 

JACOB: Wait, so CBC makes news right? 

MARK: We make a lot more than news. We make radio programs, documentaries, podcasts, TV shows, sports shows and a LOT more. We even have shows in French and indigenous languages. 

JACOB: Oh wow! Cool. 

MARK: Hey, why don’t I give you a tour, then we can get lunch somewhere. 

JACOB: Sure! 

After Mark shows Jacob around the facility, they go to a fast-food place and get stuff to eat. They sit down at a table. 

JACOB: So, I have a question. Public broadcasting is nice to have, but do we really need it? Like, it’s mostly funded by the government which means people are paying tax dollars for it, and there’s a lot of other TV shows already out there. Couldn’t that money be used for, like, hospitals or something. 

MARK: Yes, but public broadcasting has its benefits. We make lot of 

educational stuff. All those documentaries I was talking about, plus we make videos specifically designed to help children learn. 

JACOB: Like what? Sesame Street? 

MARK: Hey, you used to like that as a kid! 

JACOB: (Laughs) 

MARK: Anyway, we also make news programs, like you said. It’s meant to be very unbiased and 

present all sides. Did you know that people who watch the news on public broadcasting are better informed, more likely to vote and have more realistic perceptions of society than those who don’t? They’re also more likely to be accepting towards immigrants and have higher levels of social trust. 

JACOB: Wow, I’m more impressed at the fact that you remembered all of that. 

MARK: What can I say, Public Broadcasting has made me a better man! 

JACOB: Oh my gosh. 

MARK: I’m not done yet! 

JACOB: (Sighs) 

MARK: The CBC also investigates the cases of missing and murdered indigenous 

women. Many people don’t even know that 10 percent of all female homicides in Canada are for aboriginal women and girls. They’re being killed all around us and we don’t even know about it. 

JACOB: Insanity. 

MARK: I know! (Checks watch). I think we should head home soon. It’s getting kinda late. 

JACOB: Sure, let’s go.

Indigenous Podcast – Freefall

Freefall is a podcast about Nadine Machiskinic, a 29 year-old indigenous woman who fell down a laundry chute at Delta Hotel, Regina. At first, the police ruled her death an accident because of the mysterious circumstances in which she died. There are still a lot of unknowns in her case, which was made tedious by a series of mistakes by police and investigators. To learn more about her story, click the link below.

Avoiding Stereotypes in the Media

In today’s world, media is all around us. With all the advertisements being absorbed, it is important for companies to make sure that they avoid using racist and sexist messages in their ads. Companies should take the simple and necessary steps to avoid offending or belittling people of certain race, culture, religion or gender. Something companies can start do is show the ad to people of different groups before releasing it and gather their reactions or opinions. The people making the ads might not be aware of how they come across to the public, gathering opinions from different people can help give insight about the messages and overall feel of the ad. Companies should also do their research before they release their ads. There is an abundance of information available on the internet that anyone can access. Learning about steriotypes and prejudice is not difficult and should be a necessary step for advertisers everywhere. Companies can also avoid making assumptions about who does and does not use their product. When this happens, they target their ads to certain groups and if not done correctly, can end up insulting people of that group or other groups. Simply having ads that appeal to everyone is a good way to avoid conflicts surrounding steriotypes, sexism and racism.

Society as a whole also needs to be informed about these issues. Many people are aware of sexism or racism, but don’t know the history behind why something is sexist or racist. Informing the public about what and especially why something is offensive to a certain group can help them become more aware of their own actions and behaviors. It is the next step in becoming a more accepting society and it can be done right now.

Advertising Target Market

The company that the advertisement was showing was Extra, a company that makes gum. I think the ad was intended to appeal to parents with children. I think that because it tells a story about a father and a daughter, who eventually moves out, but takes with her all the memories she made. Every person can relate to the ad to a certain degree, but it’s specifically parents who can relate more to the story shown in the ad.
