Content Analysis: The Reporting Of Amanda Knox in the Case of Meredith Kercher’s Murder

On 1st November 2007, British exchange student Meredith Kercher was murdered in her shared apartment in Perugia, Italy. The case received worldwide press coverage, particularly in England and Italy, and has been of high media interest on an international magnitude for over four years. However, since the release of suspect Amanda Knox on 3rd October 2011 the media’s shift in the spotlight has left Kercher’s family to believe that, ‘Meredith has been hugely forgotten’ (Kington 2011). So why did this change of focus from the media happen? And how and when did it first come into place?

How has Stranger Collective adapted to survive as a small, independent business as the role of Journalism itself is changing?

(Published on Liquid News Room)

For my BA(Hons) Journalism course at University College Falmouth, I am undergoing a three-week work placement at Stranger Collective, a creative service and copywriting agency based in Penryn, Cornwall. Starting out as a bimonthly lifestyle publication titled ‘Stranger’ that launched in September 2004, the magazine offered a flavour of life in Britain today, shining the spotlight on the talent of young people in Cornwall, focusing on the creative side of Cornwall’s culture with a mix of music, film, environment, current affairs, surf, skate and fashion. The last printed edition of the magazine was published in August 2007 after 16 issues; Stranger now continues through Stranger Collective, publishing features, reviews and news on their website, and creating one-off print projects, such as zines, produced to coincide with local events and festivals.

Falmouth’s Royal Street…Gathering

April 29th, 2011 will be a date well remembered around the whole world. Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal wedding. A joyous occasion for all, hosting a number of marvellous street parties all over the UK to bring neighbourhoods together in celebration. But for the small town of Falmouth, Cornwall, the day saw a handful of students getting tipsy; a bit too hyped up to be described as a mass of ‘revellers’ who created an ‘out of control’ street party.
