Television still most Powerful among news media

Posted on :

Korea’s three largest-circulation daily newspapers account for more than half of all newspapers’ power to influence public opinion, a government panel concluded Thursday.

Television proved to be the most powerful media outlet, while conventional print media is losing ground to online media.

This is the first time a survey on the concentration of media outlets’ power to influence the formation of public opinion has been conducted, with the aim of getting “an objective view of the media market.”

According to the three-year study by a panel under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, television marked 47.2 percent in weighted concentration ratio ― a measure of influence based on market share and strength of impact ― followed by online news outlets at 26 percent and newspapers at 17.3 percent, showing that people paid the most attention to the small screen.

TV news and investigative programs were shown to be influential among people of all generations, while newspapers attract older people and youngsters were drawn to online outlets.

Among the 70 daily newspapers in the country, the three largest dailies ― Chosun, JoongAng and Donga ― held 57.6 percent of the concentration ratio. Chosun marked 23.7 percent, JoongAng 17.9 percent and Donga took 16 percent. Only seven other papers recorded 2 percent concentration ratio.

When it comes to online news,, the website for the Chosun Ilbo newspaper, topped the chart with 7.6 percent followed by the websites for JoogAng Ilbo, 6.8 percent and Yonhap News, 5.9 percent.

Taiwan Television will reduce South Korea’s television shows and Dramas

Taiwan’s national broadcasting regulator has ordered a local TV station to cut its broadcast time for Korean dramas in a bid to encourage development of local content, officials said Tuesday.

Upon the request of the Taiwanese National Communications Commission (NCC), Gala Television (GTV) will reduce the proportion of South Korean shows on its soap opera-dedicated channel starting in June, NCC officials said.

South Korea’s television shows and pop singers have become increasingly popular in neighboring countries, such as Japan, China and Taiwan, a phenomenon called “hallyu.”
However, anti-hallyu sentiment has recently been sparked in Japan and Taiwan where South Korean culture has become common
fixtures in TV, news, magazines and popular music.

‘Jersey Shore’ Italy — Expect “Major Brawls” During Season Four!

They’re baaaaack! Everyone’s favorite gang of guidos and guidettes hits MTV tonight for season four of the Jersey Shore — in Italy. And the cast is calling the season the most dramatic yet!

The gang met with reporters at their home in Seaside Heights today, to talk about the upcoming season.


The Associated Press reports that the crew said “being stuck with each other around the clock in a foreign country led to some major brawls.”

But don’t worry, they are still “as close as family.”

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino said that he identified with aspects of his own heritage when he saw how Italians “talk with their hands and stage elaborate meals.”

The cast finished filming the fifth season in Seaside Heights on Tuesday. Those episodes will air later in the year.

For most of the decade, Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been embarrassing Italy in the eyes of Americans (along with the rest of the world).

Now, America has returned the favor by sending the Jersey Shore crew to Florence, to humiliate us in the eyes of the Italians. While they’re in Europe, we’ll be checking in with Snooki, The Situation, et al, regularly, in a series we’re calling “How Did the Jersey Shore Cast Embarrass Us in Italy This Week?” After a much-needed week off from our Mystery Science Theater 3000-esque coverage of the show, we return for our fourth installment — in which The Situation gives himself a head injury, Ron and Sam break up again, and Deena explains Italian fashion — is after the jump.
