Although the hegemonic view of immigration is deemed as negative for the westernised population, due to economical and housing issues they may bring, it is apparent that Germany is one of a very few countries, who are more willing to welcome migrants. this is evident, as there were more than one million refugees who moved to Germany in 2015 alone. However, this caused a lot of confusion for the German population, as they felt that their own problems weren’t being taken seriously, therefore “thousands of Germans started to protest against their governments pro-refugee policy,” (Washington post, 2016). In this case, it’s clear that the media’s negative influence of migrants post- 9/11 hasn’t had a big effect on the Germany as they are choosing to reject and “see through the dominant ideology,” (Fourie, 2001, P254), of what immigration brings. This is an example of audience interpretation and readings, where the theorist Stuart Hall believed that people decide to either negotiate, agree or oppose the hegemonic view society has, meaning that the media’s influence is less effective to the public and countries like Germany who decide to challenge it. The media is also a constructive tool as presenting biased facts and information to consumers, however prosumers who actively look, produce and share information, find there are two sides to an issue. Evidently, this occurred on the lead up to the Brexit vote, where news coverage kept linking immigration with the war crisis in Syria, which was used to emphasise the uncertainty of welcoming these particular migrants. However, the news did not signify that “immigration is one of the most important and influential social processes taking place in many countries, mainly in Europe and North America,” (Ruggiero et al, 2011, P36). Statistics also show that the “English National Health service shows that in 2015, 235,000 out of 1.22 million staff were non-British,” (Independent, 2015). This therefore brings up an issue that news isn’t necessarily what is important in the world b>GET ANSWER
