Exogenous versus indigenous media productions

Something that’s exogenous comes from somewhere else, from outside. For example in our book page 490, it states that “stations transmitting to the regions they hope to influence from the outside those areas”

Indigenous is something that is native or original to a area. For example in out book page 490, it states “operations functioning inside the regions to which they transmit.”

A news example from the New York Times, is about one mans fight against gay marriage. I believe this is a good example of exogenous media productions because it involves a man who himself is outside of the gay community and yet he is trying to place his values on the gay community. He is an outsider to that community yet he is trying to influence from the “outside.”

A news example from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, which is a letter to the editor about how not all gay people support same-sex marriage, the article contains his argument on the issue. This i believe is a good example of indigenous media productions because this is some one on the “inside” hoping to translate his messages. He is a Homosexual man who is fighting his case to the public Heterosexual and Homosexual, trying to get out his message that nott all gays support same-sex marriage from the “inside.”
