If you have any questions, please send me message. Here is the example for article and response: article:"TV portrayals of women fare poorly in diversity. Iʻm put off by the homogenous, cookie-cutter depiction of women. Something akin to Bay Watch babes in office clothes. I do not watch TV per se, but rent mostly crime and law themed DVD TV series: CSI, Criminal Minds, Medium, House, NCIS, Heroes, Eureka, Terminator, JAG, 24, etc. I keep in mind that these shows are for entertainment purposes but Iʻm female and donʻt enjoy seeing fellow females constantly protrayed as cloned sex objects. All Hollywood has done as far as I can tell is place brains in their former creation...the bimbo, changed the blonde hair to brunette and cast black women, for the most part, that are a light skin color to satisfy their minority requirement. A barrage of boobs pouring out of actressesʻ clothes is most likely a perceived selling point for ratings but it seems to have become more of a default replacement for good script content in the last decade. For instance, the standard low plunging tops for a role where the woman is supposed to be taken seriously as a director or head of some law enforcement agency or a female visiting a menʻs prison wearing a low cut, short, sleeveless dress. Real women donʻt come to work in a professional, white collar environment half exposed and women arenʻt allowed prison visits inappropriately dressed. In fact itʻs called a dress code violation, a distraction or indecent. These non diversified suggestive portrayals tend to take any believability out of the show, for me anyway. Scully, from the X-Files, always dressed professionally and was still intriguing without having to expose herself. Interestingly though, the latest season of Criminal Minds that Iʻm currently renting has a changed, more conservative wardrobe style. But overall, with Hollywood TV there seems to be a loosening of the decency rules especially during the PG hours. Every generation has its own achieved-for standard body shapes, clothing styles, hairstyles, make-up, etc. That is to be expected as trends are trends and not much can be done about them except to wait and see what the self-possessed fashion designers will inflict upon women next. Almost all TV shows exhibit women and teenage girls flaunting a high-class hooker exterior. There are few TV shows that demonstrate modesty whatsoever for female wardrobes. The hairstyles are devoid of individuality and all networks seem to be imitating each other. An actress from one network show could easily be dropped into another network show and the transition would be seamless regardless of the role. On the other hand the men in most of these shows are pretty diverse in age, physique, race, personality, style, etc. The message I receive is that the female actresses have nothing to offer if they arenʻt a Hollywood prototype and provocatively dressed indicating that acting ability or talent is a less important factor in casting females. Women continue to be exploited and the impacts, through repetition and consistency (or lack of diversity), carry over to children of both sexes. It permeates their programs as well. Granted, sex sells, but the prevalence of actresses showing more skin and having very similar physical traits is an inundation of degrading connotations towards women that, over time, displaces healthy self-images and self-worth. " Example for Response: "I agree that American television has pretty much always required an exaggerated beauty of it`s actresses. My mother was a huge fan of BBC and I was always struck by how many of the actors looked like normal people, they weren`t extremely good-looking (both men and women, for that matter). Considering this when I was a teenager I came to appreciate that the BBC seemed to promote good acting/comedic timing in its actors over good looks, in contrast to American television/movies, which seemed to promote just the opposite. Americans are obsessed with Hollywood, we are constantly being bombarded with their personal information, Hollywood is our Mount Olympus. I definitely feel like the American preference for good-looks over talent in what has become our new gods (Hollywood stars) is shaping our society to become very shallow and frankly, extremely ignorant of themselves and of others. Because we live in a patriarchal society women are the gender who bear this burden to a greater degree, so I suppose television is reflecting that stereotype, but also by continuing to do so perpetuates it. The message you receive from Hollywood regarding actresses is subconsciously the message that is sent to American women: you are not worth it unless you fit the standard of beauty. I agree with you that this is a very damaging practice and I will go even further in stating that I believe this shallow practice is creating rifts in our society between people and preventing them feeling free.

" 2:"Along with the rest of our society, the television industry has always practiced age discrimination. Female news anchors disappear from the screen when they are no longer young and attractive. Even middle-aged TV writers have a hard time finding work. In 2010, a class-action age-discrimination lawsuit by a group of 165 television writers was settled for $70 million dollars. According to a New York Times article, the settlement may have caused some change in employment practices. Also, as the article states, “Audiences have aged, and many of the most-watched programs on television are police and medical dramas that target audiences in their 40s and 50s”. Because audiences are getting older, the television industry has responded with more shows featuring a middle-aged or older star. The industry also realizes that older audiences often have more disposable income. One example of an older actor returning to television is the addition of actor Ted Danson to the “CSI” crime series. This 61-year old became popular in the “Cheers” comedy that ran for 11 years in the 1980`s. Another example is Tim Allen, a 58-year old star in the new series “Last Man Standing”. Actress Dana Delaney, who starred in several hit shows in the past, is now featured in the “Body of Proof” series. I`m especially happy to see older actors in television in serious roles. In the past, older actors on television were only shown as “old geezers” in comedy shows. Older actors can also contribute a lot to a really good comedy. One especially well-written comedy series is the cable network show “Hot in Cleveland”. It features three middle-aged women (Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, and Wendie Malick), and the 89-year-old actress Betty White. In my opinion, Betty White is the star of the show. She has perfect comedic timing, and the writers seem to give her the best punch lines. According to Wikipedia, “she is the only female to have an Emmy in all female performing comedic categories”. In May 2010, White became the oldest person to guest-host Saturday Night Live, for which she also received a Primetime Emmy award. Although older actors and actresses are beginning to be featured on several new shows, they are still grossly under-represented in the television industry. I may be prejudiced because of my own age, but I feel that older actors still have a lot to offer. They have been perfecting their craft for many years, and it`s a shame to ignore them solely on the basis of age." TO.

Running Head: Media Article ReviewsMedia Article ReviewsStudent`s Name:Institution:Course Details:Instructor`s Name:Date:Article 1 The comments on the obsession with the physical looks over the individual character in TV shows are to the point. For a long time now, Hollywood has created its own world view where women are characterized not by their self worth but how ell they look. The lack of diversity despite the fact that it exists in the real world is worrying and this seems to be a feature that is not going to end soon. All the TV shows are fighting over themselves to get the best portrayal of women not as people wh...
