Reports of youth bus crime soar By Steven Shukor BBC News, London

'Running wild‘: Tom Scanlon, of the Transport & General Workers' (T&GW) Union, said youngsters had lost respect for bus drivers and fellow bus passengers. "There is an assumption that because travel is free, they can get on and off an bus and they are answerable to no-one.”

'Torrent of abuse' "The reason we started the campaign is that we thought anti-social behaviour was getting worse and we were sick of it," said Mr Wright. "It's as if youngsters see buses as their own personal taxi service."

Look very carefully on the images: Is this who we really are?

“ In our point of view, News speaks the truth and reality around the globe, that’s why its called NEWS (north, east,west and south) .”

Hegemony in News Representation of Youth/Teen/Teenagers
“ Media industries operate within a structure that produces and reinforces the dominant ideology via a consensual ‘world view’.” “This world view is produced predominantly by white middle class, middle aged, heterosexual men.” “It is their ideas and values that infiltrate media texts and ensure that other voices do not get heard.”

Factors to consider for the representations of teens/youth: Race: Issue of classification
gender ethnicity

-a way of maintaining the order of a system. Such as Youth sub cultures social class

History: “It is our mind that sets our ideologies about certain things and even about someone but it is our false consciousness that dictates of how to perceive them through history.”

Do we really have a choice? If so, does it mean that we also choose what to present to the public or we are just structured that we follow a certain pattern through setting a trend to follow.

News is everything and everywhere. The news itself is unchangeable as it already happened/occurred. But it only changes/differs through the way it RE present itself that involves ones point of views. Youth will always be part of the news as it is the reason why media (news, films,movies etc.) still exists.
