Exogenous Vs. Indigenous Media Productions
Exogenous media are media from outside of a certain place, where as indigenous media are from within that certain place. These types of media can be separated simply into world news vs. local news. This article, http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/26/world/cnnheroes-prison-children/index.html?hpt=wo_t5,is a story from outside the U.S. It is about children growing up inside prison with their parent, because the child does not have any other family members to take care of them. Although it is an exogenous media, we can easily relate to the feelings the story was supposed to convey. This article, http://marquee.blogs.cnn.com/2012/11/26/angus-t-jones-of-two-and-a-half-men-my-show-is-filth/?hpt=hp_t3, is about the character Jake from the U.S. television show “Two and a Half Men.” It is about how Jones, who plays Jake, regards the show as filth and asks viewers to stop watching it. It is indigenous because it is a show from the United States.
