Kobe Bryant was charged with adultery. Kobe allegedly had sex with a 19 year-old woman at an Eagle Rock, Colorado lodge and spa. Sources say that the 19 year-old went to Kobe's suite at around 10:00 p.m. on June 30th. When she got up to the room, Kobe and the victim started fondling, one thing led to another and then they started having sex. While they were having sex, the victim was telling Kobe to stop and supposedly, he did not. Friends and family say that he would never do such a thing and that he is the friendliest guy. .
This topic would be good to study because Kobe is a big basketball star and celebrity. This event will get a lot of coverage because of that. The case has been covered in the news, newspaper, Internet, and magazines all over the country.
That is how this case is known throughout the United States. This is one of the reasons why I chose this topic; the other reason is that Kobe Bryant is one of my favorite basketball players. I hope I can learn a lot about Kobe and the way the media treats different people and different subjects.
Overview of all Media Used.
The Kobe Bryant case gets a lot its coverage on the TV news. It gets the most coverage because there are always news cameras around the courthouse. The intended audience for TV news is mainly businessmen because they are at work all day long and when they get home, they want to know what is going on around the world. They would be able to get a lot of information off the news because they get information from all around the world not just the United States.
The newspaper does not always have coverage on the Kobe Bryant case, but when it is mostly in the sports section of the paper, which means it will most likely be good news about him. If it were anywhere else in the newspaper, it would most likely be bad news about him. The reason for this is because, in the sports section the editors want to give good news about Kobe because he is a basketball star and if they put bad news it will make athletes look bad.
