Advancing a typology of media content: Analysis of a literary journalism story

Abstract

The way stories are told to the public in any society, even the most draconian ones, always leaves some room for trivia non grata to beholders in the ruling authorities. Seditious messages passing for praises do find their way into public discourse to rub power holders the wrong way. Since symbolic representation of reality makes it impossible for any text to be seamlessly closed, linguistic cracks and loopholes open up endless possibilities for the imaginative writer with a hidden political agenda in authoritarian societies.
