Which of these tools...

  1. Tells you the most about the news story? Why?
  2. Makes you most interested? Why?
  3. Shows the journalists’ own opinions? Why?

Add your answers to the comments below. Remember to give your reasons.

Remember - all work must be your own. We will not publish work we think has been copied off the internet and doesn't relate to the questions above.

To show it's your own, try to use phrases like "I think..." and "I believe..." and "Responding to (insert name's) point, I'd like to say...". You can also respond directly to the questions that have already been asked by writing 1, 2, 3....

Challenge: What other ways can journalists share a news story. And how useful are they compared to the four we have listed above?

    I think the "cartoon" tells the most about the offshore taxation, companies or banks. Because at the first sight of the cartoon I could understand that the rich people are hiding the offshore benefits that the people actually should know about underneath the shelter of the offshore companies. As shown in the last part of the cartoon, the ordinary people are unfortunately not given any chance to fight against the intolerant offshore benefits and their mouth are literally kept shut in that huge pile of these avoided taxes (which seems to be unfair).

    Next, the tool that seemed most interesting to me in this regard is "perspective". Here as shown, it's really hard to leave own facilities or benefits that the involved rich people are getting easily from offshore companies. How could they solve the problem where they themselves are involved in this category!? This seemed interesting as the idea that is shown in this regard is related to something that is called "Portfolio Diversification". This means that at first creating the base of the company in a low-tax country and then by going international and investing in different asset classes and currencies, the involved rich people can help cut down the risk to their overall investments in their offshore companies. That's why they have no headache to give an eyesight to the taxation of the mass people.

    From my point of view, the tool "document" shows the journalist's own opinion the most clearly. Because, it's not possible for one person to collect this huge amount of information of "Pandora papers" individually rather it's a collective effort given by many journalists around the globe. The journalists of the "International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ)" collectively afforded this huge amount of data and given their opinions on those documents, e-mails, spreadsheets and many more. That can be a reason that the tool "document" shows the most out of the journalists' own opinions compared to the other tools given here.

    Besides the tools listed above the journalists can also share this type of news stories through "infographics" i.e. the graphical presentation information and documents. It can also be done through writing thesis and educational books. Maybe the most effective one to share these news worldwide is to create educational contents such as animated videos, podcasts, images, blogs and many more. By these contents, the mass people can learn more deeply and clearly about that specific news that is leaked or broadcasted around the globe.

    Thank you.

        I don't think, in my opinion, animation can also talk about governments and institutions in the country, or talk about a person's way of life in happiness or sadness to convey the idea to people

          I agree with you on this point and that animation cannot be able to convey the voices of the people and their torment in life, but it can be a reason for their happiness even if they are old, every big person inside is a small person and it can also their sorrows, but it can not beat and know their suffering Daily with these agents who looted everything that this poor people owns

          Hello calm_outcome, you said that ‘I don't think, in my opinion, animation can also talk about governments and institutions in the country, or talk about a person's way of life in happiness or sadness to convey the idea to people ' . Please tell us why you do not think so.
          But, in my opinion, animated videos can also talk about how a government runs and how the world is running. For example: On YouTube, you may have heard of the Channel named- ‘OverSimplified’, which have now over 5.4 million+ subscribers. This channel explains and makes quality content on the topics related to country history, world politics, money laundering etc agendas. Here, I am not promoting the channel, but the point I am trying to make is, it is obviously possible to explain how money laundering, offshoring, government activities etc are done through animated videos and infographics. Again there are hundreds of channels and websites like ‘OverSimplified’. Not only that, but it can also be entertaining to watch such videos as well as educational and helpful for anyone of any age. Because, in my opinion, many people find this boring to research and know about government activities, to know about other countries and other world politics.
          I would be very much delighted to know what is your opinion and logic about your saying. Thanks!

      I agree with you. I think that cartoons is not only important in news, it is also used in life. It is a bless to tell what inside us, what goes round in our minds. It is a tool used by people who can not talk or speak to tell us their message.

      From my point of view, I think that cartoons are more suitable for children, and we cannot express them with complex problems. Therefore, cartoons are often used in children's programs because they provide the child with solutions to problems that he can use until he reaches the age of ten, but after that, it does not help him, so he searches for things other than the cartoon that suits him and suits his age to solve his problems

    First of all, in my opinion, theories are the ones that tell me the most about the news story, because they give me a topic to think about and this is what will attract me to the news story. I like to hear different theories, because I can also own my own theory in the matter, and because theories are something that increases your focus on the matter and your thinking, and this will give more room to think and delve deeper into the news story, that is, it will make me interested in it, because I want to know more and more so that I can get a correct and convincing theory that I can publish and tell people about , For example: I was sitting on the phone readin debates by Dostoevsky and Nietzsche,this made me search more and more about the topics of their debates, and this is the case with news stories if they formulated them through theories,debates are what give journalists the freedom to express their opinions because it will make every journalist tell his doubts or evidence. It will make the journalist share his opinion freely because he wants to prove the truth and wants his theory to win,You will find him working hard to reach a logical theory in which he can overcome the rest of the theories to increase his importance and fame, And if it becomes popular, he will be able to express his theories on a larger scale, and thus the journalist will help viewers think about the news story and share their theories as well

        Through the quality of curiosity, which I actually see as an essential characteristic of every journalist, as I said earlier in one of the weekly competitions,curiosity makes the journalist pursue his doubts and curiosity to reveal a certain fact or a research issue that the publicity and civil society did not open or know about,through his doubts, new ideas will be produced that may be facts or be a key to reaching the truth ,and so with the accumulation of many ideas, he will arrange them and support his theory with facts, evidence and percentage to make the reader and viewer convinced of what he publishes

      I think the point of view can help convey the idea to most people's points of view, which I think is a mixture of opinion and fact.
      Second, I think it is acceptable for an opinion to be based on facts, to make our arguments conclusive. That's because some journalists are smart, because they base their opinions and perspectives on abstract facts, like saying I think the people most vulnerable to climate change are indigenous peoples, even though they are the least responsible for climate change and damage. on the environment. Here the journalist expresses his opinion and does not impose it because his words are in fact true.
      I think that the point of view that the writer uses expresses his opinion frankly and does not impose it on those who read and makes the subject also have discussions, so each of us expresses his opinion without restrictions.

        A journalist can express his opinion freely, because already in his profession his point of view must be spoken about,For example, when people are asked about an issue, when he hears their opinion, he will ask them questions about their views and opinions,and when he talks with journalists, he must speak his opinion and support him like them, and in order for his point of view to win, he will express every point he wants to talk about.

      . I agree with you because listening to many theories enhances the ideas of the journalist and helps him in many things, for example: the theory of development journalism or the development theory. This theory is still a set of opinions and recommendations, appropriate for all media and their functions, in developing countries. This theory gains its independent existence from other press theories, from its recognition and acceptance of development, its emphasis on the identity of the nation, its unity and cohesion, and its rejection of subordination and arbitrary authoritarianism. Focus and development journalism, as Leonard Sussman defines it, are the objective journalists on the latest developments in the various fields of development, which leads to the success of economic development and the achievement of national unity, or it is: “The government’s use of communication outlets to achieve economic and social development.” . Development journalism requires newspapers, as Narinder Agarwala says, to examine with a critical eye, evaluate and write, about the extent to which the development project is linked to different and national needs, and examine the differences between the plan and its implementation, and the difference between its effects on people, in the statements of officials, and its actual effects. It notes the contradiction between the government's use of the press in the service of development, and the monitoring role of the press. Under government control, criticism recedes and development news turns into a political pillar for the government and its leadership. Perhaps this contradiction is what prompted the English media thinker, Anthony Smith, to stress the need to differentiate between development journalism and communication in the service of development, but the two concepts overlap, within the framework of government control. This is confirmed by Kalrib Ramyal, referring to the consolidation of the concepts of “development journalism”, “directed journalism”, and “communication in the service of development”. According to the development theory, the tasks of the media, in the development process, can be summed up in the following points: shaping the people’s attitudes and developing their national identity. Helping citizens, to realize, that the new state has already been established. Adopting policies decided by the government, with the aim of assisting in achieving national development. Encouraging citizens to trust institutions and government policies, which gives legitimacy to political authority and strengthens its position. Contribute to achieving political and social integration by examining political and social conflicts, thwarting the voices of fragmentation and division, and alleviating contradictions in values ​​and trends between different groups. Assisting in stability, national unity, and giving priority to national interest over self-interest. Highlight the positives, ignore the negatives, and minimize criticism

    Interactive journalism is still possible without extensive knowledge of coding. but how?

    Browse the web to find tools that allow you to create multimedia content. Below you'll find a handful of free apps that will do all the work for you, without the need for coding:

    Google My Maps: Google My Maps is a tool very familiar to readers and journalists, simply because it simulates the maps on phones via GPS. You can create your own Google Map selecting the layers, text, and images attached to it. Search for the site you want in the search box above. When you find it, click on “Add to Map”. My Maps will drop the selections that were previously placed through what looks like a pin and provide multiple options. You can also change the pin icon to better fit the story. This tool also allows you to add lines, measurements, and directions for increased clarity. Once you're done, you can make your map public, with the code that allows you to share it.

    Journalists can communicate the news in another way, which is to interview celebrities. Before each interview with a celebrity, they must place an advertisement that the viewer cannot skip, in a short form that explains the news story,And I can guarantee that if you do this to interviews with celebrities who are very famous, such as: Bts, Blackpink, Selena Gomez and others, you will find a great attraction, for example: 3 weeks ago at the United Nations, the Korean band BTS participated, and the number of views increased incredibly, so that the audience was waiting for the broadcast to start at the United Nations in days and hours, If we take advantage of something like this by placing an ad that shortens the news story, we will ensure that the news story spreads widely, because we as teenagers or young people, like to be attracted to our attention using what we like, and when we see that there is interest in what we like, it will motivate us to spread the news topic , but there are also points you should pay attention to if you want to publish the news story as an advertisement before celebrity interviews:

    1_ Do not associate the famous with having anything to do with the news story if it is political, so clarify this point in the first moments of the announcement, if you do not, the one who will harm him is the famous and thus the audience will attack you , And your news story will be denied
    2_ Put a short ad that summarizes everything so that you can attract viewers
    And also advice from me as a viewer, I prefer the journalist to think a lot to come up with his own theory, so that he can stay in touch with the audience because the audience is attracted to convincing theories that contain facts, examples, percentages

        Yes, a group of the masses who think that their celebrity will be exploited and his artistic career will be sabotaged in order to expose political matters, but the matter can be resolved by clarifying the matter at the beginning of each advertisement through short lines

        She just told about the famous celebrities and of course i agree with the point that they might get huge attraction or attention.But the fact is if one of their work is somehow harmful to nature. Isn't that time the mind set of people can affected?(I'm not talking about the political issues it might be their personal life style .We all know that some people shows a different faces in front of camera).
        What we can do is arrange a live question answer session with the political leaders along with the people of worst living standard for poverty of their area.

        I agree that the journalist should be a creative person in his work who can deliver his message to people and reveal some hidden facts, although the journalist should not publish what people do not want to disclose if these matters are personal and do not harm anyone's life either. These things or these papers called Pandora papers, which are used by wealthy people in their work, the journalist must be successful and skilled in revealing facts that harm the lives of many people and can cause them suicide and mental illness
        I think I found the value association of the units to get the message across better

      A journalist can use other tools to transmit news such as pictures or audio at the same time, but have you ever wondered that a journalist has the right to publish what he wants??
      It does not mean that a journalist, if he is a journalist, has the right to publish whatever he wants.
      A journalist must abide by and exhibit freedom of the press and the public's right to know, provided that he provides a professional service to the public and publishes accurate, fair and responsible news and opinions through the Perspectives Tool, as well as allowing everyone's opinion without exception. .
      The journalist must distinguish in the process of publication between news and opinions, and any news published in the course of publishing opinions applies to the rules of professional ethics for news.
      Any news publication must be unbiased, unbiased and honest.
      So that the people always trust him and enjoy his privacy and good reputation, a journalist may not publish without the consent of the person concerned with the subject anything concerning his privacy or his good reputation which would harm him.
      Unless it is in the public interest of all, and before publication, the person concerned should be consulted and should have the opportunity to publish his response appropriately.

      I agree with you, but I think that a journalist has another important tool which is sign language. We have a large number of people who can not speak or hear, those people should not be neglected or ignored. They are part of the society, they play a very important part in life, some of them are writers, others are artists. So they must be aware of everything around them, connected with the latest news, in order to be given a real chance to participate and integrate in society.

    1.
    I think the cartoon tells me most about the news of "Pandora Papers". In the cartoon, I can see some people trapped in a island which represents the poor people. Up next, the people notices a ship coming towards them which resembles the poor people's hope for help from the rich people. Then the ship comes to them and drops a pile of money which tells us that large industries and giant companies establish their base in the poor countries for their own sake. In a nutshell, the cartoon tells me, "The poor people expect the rich people to help. But the rich people just uses the poor people for their own benefit by establishing offshore companies in their country and that helps them to avoid a huge amount of taxes."

    2.
    The tool which makes me most interested is "Perspectives". It says that the people who are capable of exposing the secrets of the offshore companies are the ones who are being benefitted from it. It gives me a blurry idea about what offshore companies are, what the benefits are, what secrets they are hiding, how the exposers are being benefitted by hiding those secrets. It makes me most interested and also curious to know more about some particular terms like 'Avoiding taxes', 'Pandora Papers', 'Offshore companies' etc. So, in my opinion, this tool is the most interesting to me compared to the other three tools given here.

    3.
    I think the "Perspectives" tool shows the journalists' own opinion. It says that those who can end the secrets are reaping benefits. I think there are many countries and numerous institutions who maintain these kinds of financial secrets may have some other reasons. Let's assume a developing country which is desperate to employ its unemployed population gets an offer of providing huge employment in exchange of minimum tax-paying and it has no other option but to permit them for the betterment of its citizens. Apart from this context, the journalists are saying that they are just doing so for their profits whereas the country has no choice rather than that. So it can be said that these are the journalists' own opinions.

      Different people think differently. Some people might make out other meanings from the Cartoon. Don't you think it might create misjudgement and information? What if the viewers think about a topic watching the picture which is completely different to what the pictures really mean? What about those who don't have an artistic mindset and can't even understand a single metaphor of the cartoon?

    I think that the views with which the journalist can tell us about the news story because it includes many different points of view of different people, which shows and makes clear to the viewer everything he wants to understand. As for me, I prefer cartoons because people of my age are considered children and this encourages the child to watch news and stories As for the tool that shows the opinion of the journalist, they are the views, because he can add his point of view after adding the views of others, which causes a multiplicity of viewpoints and clarifies the matter more. There are 3 other ways that journalists can share their news, namely: Reporting: Writing good, clean news is important, but all the writing skills in the world cannot replace accurate and effective reporting. Good reporting means answering all the questions the reader may have and then some questions. It also means checking the information you get to make sure it's accurate. And don't forget to check the spelling of the source name. 2 Find something to write about: Journalism isn't about writing articles or fiction - you can't create stories from your imagination. You have to find posts worth reporting. Check the places where the news happens most often - your city hall, the police department or the court. Attend a city council or school council meeting. Want to cover sports? High school football and basketball matches can be exciting and provide a great experience for aspiring athletes. Or meet the merchants of your city to discuss the state of the economy.

    1) I think 'perspectives' will tell us the most about the news story. I think this because when you are put in someone else's shoes, you embrace what they are going through and understand their condition a bit better than before.
    2) 'Numbers' make me the most interested. They make me interested because it allows me to see what is really happening around me, exactly. If they had just said 'a lot', then i would thing 50-100.
    3) 'Explanation' shows the journalist's own point of view. I think this because they would describe how happy, sad or confused they were about the particular thing they were writing about.

    1. I think that (cartoons) is one of the best tools that journalists will provide because it shows the news of the world and others in the form of cartoon films that children can know like adults.

    2. Cartoons are of interest to all people, even there are adults who watch cartoon movies because they introduce us to the components of the outside world and knowledge of nature, such as cartoon movies that talk about animals in the forests, and movies that show information about outer space, so this is very good and I support it.

    3. In my opinion, the cartoon shows the private opinions of journalists more, because through the cartoon films the feelings and values ​​​​expressing this film will be affected by it. Children and adults will also be affected by it. Through it, they can persevere in improving the environment, societies and others by controlling good deeds in the same people in order to preserve the environment and society.

    Another way for journalists to share a news story is by creating channels on social media in which the press will talk about what they will talk about and explain the important things to people and make children's programs that teach them useful things that contribute to the development and development of their minds for a prosperous future.

    Thank you .

    1 I think that the cartoon will be the key to the news story for me. The first thing that attracts the viewer is the interesting way of drawing, which makes him able to draw the lesson from this story
    2 Why would drawings make me more interested?!
    Because it will be the way to simulate my will and my mind, for the more I see something that attracts me, the more I want to know and delve into it more and more ,
    If these drawings are faint and do not carry an attractive meaning, they will not attract me, but if they are interesting and deep, then you will feel that you are touching these events on the ground as if you were part of this story
    3 Why does the cartoon show the private opinions of journalists?!
    Each person has his own way of expressing your opinion and has his own field in which he is able to bring out his creativity and prove your opinion in the small details in his drawings.
    When you see these drawings, you understand that these people have been afflicted by poverty and hunger, and no one supports them. The state’s only job is to hide what they are able to possess from the people, and they do not try to give every person in the state what satisfies him and what he and his family needs.

    I choose "cartoon" as an answer to the three questions. From my point of view, the cartoon explains everything as soon as we look at it and communicates the story in an interesting way that the viewer can understand and tell us more and more about the story. This makes me, as a viewer, more interested in the story and I want to know more about it. Also, this type of news story gives journalists absolute freedom to express and broadcast their creative spirit in it.

    Extra activity:


    I think that if we interviewed a celebrity and most of the time I want that celebrity to be a singer because singers are more attractive to views. For instance, I can interview Billie Eilish. I know that Billie is one of the most famous artists and the viewership on her videos reaches one billion views, and this percentage must be used for the benefit of the people and the delivery of news stories. For example, a journalist may put an Ad in the middle of the video that can't be skipped. Here the viewer is at the peak of his attention and focus. When I add the news story here the viewer will watch it with full attention. And by using this tool the story will be widespread.

    In my opinion,I do think that the cartoons tell us how miserable it is to stay in seashore and watching rich people who only go there to spend their luxurious life with family and friends and having the ability of helping those poor people they still don't do that.Besides,it shows that there are lots of faces of the politicians and other powerful people who may disclose the miserable condition of the poor people but still despite helping them,those ravening creatures stash the treasures which were supposed to go to those poor people. The most interested thing to me was the "Pandora Paper" because it reveals the people with mask such as some prominent politicians who have a different personality behind their real face.The offshore officers and prominent people do not succum about the poor people and the pandora papers leak their mask,this is why I liked this term the most. I think the number of leaking of pandora paper shows the opinion of journalists because after researching they found those masked people and tried to unmasked them.

    1. Explanation tells me the most about the story because it clearly explained everything to me in such a way that I understood the story so perfectly. I have no chance to misjudge any situation. And whenever we need to learn the most about any story , we normally search for explanations. For example, I read the explanation and it is like crystal to me that how hiding money causes troubles in society though it is fair.

    2. Undoubtedly, cartoon makes me most interested about the story. To me, cartoon is a very attractive tool to most of the people as it automatically creates interest. Whenever we see cartoons, our imaginations artistically start appearing which happened to me too when I saw the above cartoon. I really imagined the whole story that the poor people expect the rich people to help but they doesn't help. Rather they use the poor people for their own benefit.

    3. I think the journalist's own option is the "perspective" tool. It says that those who are getting benefitted by this kind of bad culture like secrecy obbshore, they can end it it they want. Many people maintain this kind of secrecy may have their own options like betterment of citizens by providing many job options in exchange of minimum tax-paying. Whereas, the journalists are saying their perspective for the poor people who are troubling themselves for this tax-paying. So, it can be the journalist's own option.

    1.For me images tells the most about the news story because often times images can depict a story better than any other medium.The cartoon shows us how taxation,banking,offshore companies etc works and it's easily understandable for most people which the other mediums lack. This also demonstrate how these activities of rich and politically connected people affect others indirectly.
    2.It's the emails that makes me most interested as email contain lots of details and information while also holding personal touch. The leaked emails reveal how these activities are done alongside exposing the identity of people concerned. But I believe a person's personal data ,emails should not be leaked unless they are harmful for other people.
    3.It's the documents that show journalists own opinion or perspectives. It's not possible to collect this much documents and most times these documents are written by the journalists as the report of their investigation.These documents show us the events from the journalists perspective. If written properly, this can be a strong tool to share everything.

    1.
    According to me, Explanation is the tool that tells me the most about the story. To be more specific, I would say the Explanation part shows a more precise image of the story where at first we got introduced to the term OFFSHORE and TAX PAYING and it is legal or illegal. Following that, we got an idea about what it is and who does this, i.e. the politicians and the rich people. So from the EXPLANATION part, we learn that some rich personalities are taking advantage of setting up offshore businesses out of public sight which benefits them through bypassing taxation.

    A lot of people will argue with the fact that Cartoon shows us a more specific image of the story. But I think, though a particular story is meant to be shown through the animations, a lot of people out of confusion might think the other way around instead of the actual story, but the EXPLANATION tool has a low chance of such occurrence.

    2.
    NUMBERS is the tool that makes me more interested in the story. In today's world, the bigger number has bigger values. When the statistics show a large number that has actually happened in this case, people automatically go for the news in hope of finding a banger. Three million images and six and a half million documents were leaked by ICIJ which is massive. It would easily and smoothly attract the public to read about and share to a larger audience. Again it also helps us presume and predict a few future numbers about such cases. So, in my opinion, numbers bring more interest to a story.

    3.
    From my point of view, the PERSPECTIVE tool actually displays a journalist's opinion. After all the statistics and explanations, the journalist's individual perspective or opinion would give a view out of the box which might be absent in other tools. Their opinion might make the situation more clear and visible as the explanations are mainly made by the collective information given by a large number of journalists. In perspective tool, it makes it easier to understand the story clearing the haze. So in my opinion PERSPECTIVE tool helps a journalist to express his own opinion about the news.

    1. On the one hand, you tell me, in my opinion, explanations. When I read the explanations, I understood clearly and directly, unlike the pictures, which may not suit everyone. Explanations are a set of statements that describe a set of facts and explain the causes, context and consequences of these facts

    2. As for the cartoons that made me more interested, because when I saw them for the first time, they attracted my attention. I wondered why these people are unhappy, why the ship did not take them, why I put the money and went, it made me wonder and more interested, but when I read the explanations I understood what the pictures mean

    3. In my opinion, which presents the opinions of journalists are the views. Certainly the point of view of one journalist differs from another. For example, the problem that exists all over the world is racism. It may be for religion, skin color, or shape. It is racism in the end, although it is a global problem, but there are different points of view from the other and from the points of view Considering can draw an opinion.

    As for the tool through which the journalist can publish news, in my opinion, if it was in the form of representative scenes, it would be more attractive to know the news. For example, when a murder occurred, they could represent how it happened instead of writing explanations and large articles. The representative scenes shorten and attract you more. In terms of the above graphics, they can We do a short acting scene that explains what it is intended for, and at the end of the short film, the problem is summarized in a sentence at the end.

    According to my opinion, the cartoon caught my attention, that is, it made me want to know what he was talking about, and I also took a main idea of ​​Pandora's Papers.

    One of the ways that journalists can publish their news and everything they discover is from the viewer’s point of view. I think that each group has a specific point of view and how you want to read the news, but I think that all people want their favorite actor or celebrity to do an interview, and also if they are both

    There is a news that they want to publish in order to write the main idea of ​​it or to summarize the topic so that they do not get bored and their enthusiasm goes away, so that the views remain high and do not decrease

    Thus, the journalist benefited by publishing the news he wanted, and the viewer also benefited by watching him interview his favorite celebrity.

    1- The most effective tool that can convey the news in a clear and understandable way is the "cartoon".
    2- It is fun for us young and old, as I think it is understood by every young and old.
    3- From my point of view, I think that what a picture in a journalist’s magazine can say, cannot be said by a journalist in a thousand words, those that add to the journalistic topic or the explanation provided by the words, which do not repeat what is inside the text.
    The cartoon can carry a meaningful message, just like the explanation, so the recipient can do a deep analysis of the cartoon in order to extract the meaning or the message to be conveyed easily. For example, when a journalist draws or uses the cartoon in his magazine about global climate changes, he puts a picture of the planet and divides the planet in half and describes the planet
    Before the change in one half and the other half describes the planet after the changes and the damage they have to humans and the environment. Thus, it has a strong and close connection with the event that affected the world with all its details, people and results shown through the image.
    This is how the reader's eye is drawn directly to the journalist.
    This is how the journalist leaves the newspaper, by using the cartoon, to speak about itself as if it were a human or a living being.
    I have accepted your challenge: There are many methods and tools that a journalist can express, for example, in a video or audio recording.
    More understanding, as most people cannot read or write, so you find that the video or audio recording gives them the idea in a more clear way and makes it easier for them to understand through hearing, seeing, understanding and speaking.
    Is there anything you want to ask??

    They are secret documents announced by the International Consortium of Investigators and Journalists, “and the leak revealed secret foreign accounts owned by 35 prime ministers and leaders of states, in addition to the accounts of 100 billionaires, famous personalities and a number of business owners, as well as laundering of water by some world leaders.” It includes the leaked Pandora papers in addition to documents and records about Three million images, over a million email messages, and over half a million spreadsheets.'Here was a project designed and organized by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists in collaboration with more than 140 media organizations that was able to obtain records and documents numbering more than 1,109 million documents from 14 external entities including: This is legal firms and wealth management companies 'and reveals a hidden world in which a number of kings, presidents, government leaders, high net worth individuals and criminals protect their financial wealth through tax evasion and money laundering' and Pandora Papers reveal the financial transactions of some of the most powerful people in the world, including more than 330 politicians From 90 countries around the world, collected and researched by about 600 journalists in 117 countries around the world, they identified stories that will be published Ha and expose them, “and the results of the investigations in the Pandora papers will constitute a journalistic material that may ignite public opinion in many countries around the world.” This calls for a journalistic effort that crosses borders, languages ​​and institutions for a purposeful discussion to know the lessons learned by a journalist from the Pandora documents and how they can be eliminated in the future, especially since it is not the first war of the Union The international union and the journalistic community in dealing with press campaigns that reveal leaked secret documents related to offshore companies and accounts and financial crimes, “there are the Vincennes 2020 documents, the 2017 Paradis documents, the 2016 Panama documents, Swissex, Offshore Lakes and many others.” These leaks gained the International Federation and the investigative journalism community experience Great in managing this volume of work, which extends in each campaign for a period of time.

    To me 'Logical Explanations' tells most of the news story, I believe when a story is written and sentences and explanations have logic it is more clearer and undrestandable. In Pandora papers different secrets of riches are exposed. But many of this could be true or not, this kind of thought rises in ones mind. But if the whole thing is written on the basis of logic, it becomes more clearer and one gets to know the story more with a truthful mindset.

    When a news contains the theories of different people from their different perspectives, I found the news more interesting. Because when you get to learn about what others are thinking, you come up with something in your mind and be thoughout for the matter, which I believe is also beneficial for ones future leadership or leadership skills, that is to think about one matter and make solutions presenting own perspetive.

    I think perspectives shows a journalists own opinion in the story. When the journalist writes a story, he writes it all from his own perspective keeping in mind that the audience is gonna read it having their perspectives on it. So perspectives expresses the storyline from the journalists mind.

    I want to say that if you are not a fan of knowing the news through explanation, it is ok, you are not alone, take your time to think, read my comment and then tell me did you change your mind??
    First, I think that the explanation is very important to convey the news correctly, safely and clearly.
    Second, the explanation is interesting to me and to adults, but I don't think children enjoy reading because they like understanding through games or interactive stories because their minds don't absorb everything like adults do.
    Third, my view Another reason annotation is important is that it allows for a greater perspective on the world and others. Annotations can take you out of closed bubbles, allowing you to see a different perspective of the world.
    I think it allows for creative thinking and also one of the reasons why captions in the newspaper are so important is that they allow for creative thinking, the caption can inspire you and it can help you give you the freshness you need, help get the creative side of your brain into thinking and finding solutions like solutions to climate problems.

    1 I think that the explanation is the one that tells me the most about the news story, because in the explanation the journalist uses a special method that makes the one who hears it more understanding and experienced.

    2 I think that the cartoon is the most interested, because the pictures express the news indirectly, as the one who sees these pictures makes him want to know more.

    3 I also think that what appears in the journalists' opinions is the perspective because he can write frankly.

    About the challenge , journalists can share a news story is through a YouTube videoThe reason for choosing this method is that there are many and many who use YouTube in various fields, and a journalist can download a video on YouTube and viewers seeing a journalist will make them more comprehensible, and more enjoyable.

    Despite the multiplicity and diversity of ways to build journalistic topics and insert them into an attractive context for recipients; Fortunately, the world of television journalism is still governed by some uniform standards, knowledge of which helps facilitate the task of television journalists who are serious about conveying the truth in an innovative way.

    There are many forms of news that appear on the screen or read by the broadcaster, and each of these forms has different editorial features. The following lines deal with some of the material that appears on the screen in advance; Which:

    Read-only news (announcer only without any pictures)

    News accompanying still images or graphics

    News accompanying the pictures and read by the announcer

    Read Only News

    It is a phenomenon that may be unique to Arab televisions. Our profession is the profession of photography, and everything that is without a picture automatically means that it is not television. However, television journalists usually resort to this type of news in the case of breaking news, or news that they have to deal with, such as presidential or sovereign news, and that comes at the last moments so that it is not possible in the available time to prepare appropriate film or graphic material for it. If you have to edit this type of news, keep in mind that there are three elements: the broadcaster who will find himself in the middle of appearing in front of the camera and reading for a long period of time without stopping. And the viewer who will tire of watching the announcer, and may lose interest in watching because the television has turned into a radio. And the message that lost the opportunity to reach in a more attractive way. Therefore, you should be brief. The duration of any of these news in any case should not exceed 25 seconds, that is, 50 words in Arabic.



    This type of news is not much different from the previous one in that it is news that contradicts television work based on the use of film. However, most television newsmen in the world find it inevitable to resort to using this news in a number of traditional cases:

    - News of expected visits or very important press conferences that have not yet occurred. It makes sense if you want to highlight it in the news bulletin to use the picture of the people involved in the visit or press conference.

    - Press statements made by people who have a major relationship with a major news, and their statements turned into news. But they had made these statements to the written press or to a news agency, not to television. It makes sense that if you have to highlight this story, you would use a picture of the person who made the statement.

    - Important news related to remote areas is not easy, and will not be easy, to get pictures from, and it cannot be overlooked. Here the map of the area is usually used.

    Breaking news that is expected to arrive but cannot be expected, such as explosions, major fires, plane crashes or hijackings.

    The previous classification identifies most cases of resorting to graphics in a news item read by the broadcaster. However, despite the rationale for resorting to graphics, there is an opportunity to make it more attractive and reduce the damage caused by the use of the still image in television.

    My love for the profession of journalism longs me to write with passion about what the mighty journalistic work done by journalists in exposing the Pandora papers, as one of the successful skills of uncovering this conspiracy is that it is not limited to confidentiality and secrecy on work secrets, but includes the ability to protect the journalist and his institution from electronic hacking and espionage, especially With the journalist’s work intertwined with the leaks of the digital world, “there is, for example, the Pegasus program that caught many journalists in the nets of the security and intelligence services, some of them returned and some of them died and were killed, so the union attaches great importance to maintaining the complete confidentiality of these documents, armed with a technical team and digital tools at the event level and correct The publication of investigations and the detection of irregularities is the major journalistic value presented to public opinion, but the most important value remains at the level of the profession of journalism is collective, participatory and cooperative work, a value that is almost missing unfortunately in our Arab world, and this value is an element of professional empowerment for journalists to exchange different experiences in the arts of investigative work such as Money tracking, money laundering, organized crime, arms deals and oil truck smuggling. There are many, many cases and violations that the journalist seeks to uncover. public opinion

    1.
    The "explanations" tells me the most about the story. Because, it just explains the whole thing. But in case of "cartoons", it is used to represent something indirectly, which may be seen differently by different people according to their perspectives. So it isn't enough. Again, the "numbers" are just mere statistics which doesn't tell us anything about the actual issue or news. It doesn't show what the thing actually is. And, as said before, perspectives would differ from person to person. Hence, only the "explanations" tells us most about the true scenario and helps us understand the issue.

    2.
    "Cartoons" makes me the most interested. All those numbers, explanations etc. are just very boring to read. But in case of "cartoons", those pictures make us attracted to the news, and gives us the freedom to think about it deeply from our own perspective.

    3.
    The "perspectives" show the journalists' own opinions. Because, all the other things are just universal, they can't change it according to them. They cannot change the "numbers" to whatever they want or they cannot even explain the whole issue differently as something else. Because, the issue or the news is the same for all. What matters the most here, is the perspectives. The opinions of journalists' themselves about the same news, but according to their own perspective.

    1. Among them, from my point of view cartoon reflects most of the news story as it is easy to be attracted and to understand easily anything from images. Other medium may seem boring as many may not like to read a big article, or may not understand the whole scenario from only statistics. Through animation images we can easily express huge stories, incident in a short canvas. Here we saw how the story got a great view by using cartoons, it grabbed my attention first, I gave a look, lessened my time for understanding and got an easy view.

    2. Numbers made me interested most as it gives a very straight overview about a particular issue. By getting the statistics of different aspects, I am trying to visualize the intensity of amount of leaked papers and it is helping me to understand the incident and increasing my urge to know that what more took place.


    3. Perspectives express journalists' own opinion most of the times. In this they basically express from their own paradigm and when they write about what the whole community thinks about an issue, they subconsciously express what they think that people can think. Here we will get a clear view about the opinion of that journalist as he is writing from his mind.

    1. The explanation part tells us more about the Pandora paper because it directly tells us about the main point of view of this recent controversial case and it also explains the insight of the Pandora Paper which is not demonstrated in other tools.


    2. The tool showing illustration or cartoon is much more interesting since it reveals that island trapped people representing unwealthy people are with no way but to take the offer of offshore companies and industries in hope of financial help. But the rich do this for their own benefits and in return, the poor get more economically backward.


    3. The tool "perspective" shows the journalist's own opinion. Here it is said that there is no solution to this unfair offshore business that's because the people that are the rich or the political leaders who could stop it are the ones taking benefits from it. But there is less evidence about the political leaders of the developed countries involved in it.
    The case was also revealed to the public on 3rd October 2021 so the case is still under investigation so it is still incomplete. That's why the tool "perspective" is the journalist's personal opinion.

    I think the "cartoon" tells us about the suffering the world is going through from corrupt leaders who plunder people's money and leave their people to taste the bitterness of poverty and hunger, as shown in the previous cartoon. Where businessmen loot money abroad to evade taxes and lead the money laundering process What makes me more interested is the lack of economic justice, the spread of poverty and the high rate of unemployment because they can open projects with this money, employ a large number of workers and reduce the unemployment rate. What is remarkable is the efforts of journalists in revealing (papersBandura) where they worked collectively and made a great effort between countries to reveal what presidents and businessmen do in looting huge funds and evading taxes and investigating the truth and clarifying its case before it. of their people In my view, this problem cannot be resolved despite their papers being revealed, because they are the ones in control of the matter, and how can the concerned beneficiary hold his boss to account... What interests me most is the irony of the journalist with the amount of effort he puts into searching for Pandora's Papers. Because it conveys information in a beautiful and interesting way and is understood by everyonethe strata of society I think that the "credibility" tool is the best thing for the journalist to express his personal opinion and to work in a private field and to publish his ideas on his personal account. It makes the journalist more daring to express his opinion in all honesty compared to his work in government departments. The journalist's opinion of Pandora's papers is best shown through cartoons or through funny clips, but they are first-class expressive.

    I think the cartoon tells most about the news story. At first, if explained from a normal human psychological point of view, an image can tell more about a situation than an article can do. Then when we are looking at the cartoon it depicts that some needy people in need of help find a ray of hope for help. They become eager for it but when the help comes nearer they ultimately face the trouble, trouble from the rich. The needy people represent the poor people and the ship is representing the rich people who come to poor countries actually to show off their help but in disguise hide their money in between the poor for their own benefit establishing offshore companies.
    Perspective amongst the tools makes me most interested. It gives a blurry vision of the news story hiding a lot of mysteries inside the statement. The journalist left the audience hungry for the depth of the story in his one statement only, he/she gives some idea of offshore companies, people benefitted and associated with it. We get to understand to some extent that these people knowing everything still are silent as they are getting benefit from it.
    The explanations tool shows the journalist’s own opinion because here the journalist is telling about his thoughts on tax hiding in offshore companies. He/she is giving his point of view that it might be legal to some extent. When a major incident comes in front of public the opinions of the initial persons matter the most. In this regard when the journalist is expressing his thoughts in his own way it gives people the opportunity to think vast and out of the box rather than being within a specific boundary of thoughts. As per the bookish knowledge the concept of offshore companies in hiding tax is illegal but the journalist opined that it might be legal which is helping the people to think in a new dimension.
    When a journalist uses a metaphor picture of real life along with an article, people get to realize its depth more. It hits everyone emotionally and bounds them to think of it with logics and analytics. It becomes more attractive to the people to think about. And this concept is quiet useful with the other 4 tools when the matter of effectiveness comes.

    For me “Explanation” tells me most about the news story because it helps me to get the full idea about a specific story. Human nature is to ask questions when they are introduced with a big fuss or a new story like what happened, where happened, how happened, why happened etc. Therefore to get along with the story precisely explanation is the best way to get started. The Pandora papers explanation made me to realize about what the story is about, who are doing it and how it is done. It made to open my own horizon of how I will take it in my own perspective analyzing the whole explanation.
    “Cartoons” make me most interested as it is a Universal appeal with no language barrier. However humans are more attracted to images, pictures as a mean of easier communication. Cartoon activates problem solving capabilities like how I deciphered the meaning of the cartoon in the activity. It also provokes various ideas by making fun of things from the real world humorously.
    According to me “Perspectives” show the journalists own opinion about a specific story because through it they can highlight their view about the situation from their personal experiences summarizing the story in a different light. Like how in the Pandora paper through “Perspective” the journalist came out with a bigger picture of how rich people are indifferent to the problem of tax evasion because of their own benefits by analyzing the story perfectly. Thus through perspective journalist explained the whole story in a different point of view getting into the bottom of the issue.

      You have explained your answer clearly - well done. You say that cartoons are universal due to no language barrier, but could there be times when they are interpreted differently due to cultural context?

    1. I think the 'Cartoon' tells me the most about the news story. I'm telling like this because from the cartoon I can get a wholesome idea about the story only after few sights and after a few brainstorming. Here at the very beginning, we can see some trapped and helpless people spending their miserable life on a poor island. But then observing a ship they floated in the hope and thought to get help from them to uplift their standard of life. In the cartoon, this ship is resembling the giant big dishonest companies who only used those helpless poor people and that particular part of the land as their secret place for avoiding tax by establishing offshore companies and left with all their benefits. Alongside they also shrank those helpless people making them more disoriented.

    2. Among the tools 'Perspective' made me most interested. Here its clearly showing the blindfold ness of the facilitated group. It's really a harsh reality that when people get the facilities they become blind and can't see how their deeds are affecting others. Here the same thing goes to the owners of those offshore companies. As they are the benefited portion of those offshore companies, though becoming the only portion who can stop these, are becoming blind. In the bed of facilities and luxury, they are losing and forgetting their morals.

    3. I think the 'Perspective' tool shows the journalist's own opinion. It is because here along with the cause he is giving an eternal solution to this problem. Giving a solution to any real-life problem needs a lot of research and brainstorming. In this part, the journalist has found out the problem. The offshore companies are being run only because those who can bring an end to it are also being facilitated and benefited from these and it is really hard to leave all these facilities those they are getting from those offshore companies without paying any headache on paying tax. And this is the journalist's opinion which is really valid.

    1- I think that the explanation is what shows people the stories and news because in the explanation the journalist can convey the news in an easy and fast way and people understand the news more
    2- I think that the most interesting and important tool is the explanation with numbers because through it the journalist works to transform how chaotic From data that has no value or meaning to interesting and easy data
    3- I think that the cartoon tool is the most tool that expresses the opinion of the journalist because it will not expose him to responsibility and through which he can express his opinion freely
    4- Other tools or ways to spread news in sound ways are spreading news through Social networking sites such as Facebook or YouTube, or printing the news on paper and distributing it to people on the street

    1. The most used tool by journalists is the explanation, because when people receive the news, they have the desire to know all the details of the news, and the journalist must be responsive to people's desires in order to be creative.
    2. One of the most enjoyable tools that the journalist uses is the cartoon, especially if it is equipped with bright colors and beautiful drawings, as it represents the abstract reality that may be difficult to perceive with the senses in a vivid and tangible representation, and then enables us to display the phenomena and abstract concepts and concepts that cannot be visually depicted in a way that is easy to understand Thus, we convey the event more clearly.
    3. The tool that shows the private opinions of journalists are the views, because the journalist is in the center of the event and aware of everything that is going on and also teaches people to have the ability to express their opinion.
    The journalist can also use a tool other than the one mentioned, which is 《photographs》and if you ask why? The answer will be as follows:-
    Because it attracts attention and a lot of attention and provides effective means in telling a news story.. and this is what is required in the work of journalism.

    Journalism, like any other profession, has many different types of serious news. It has what is called a news story, which is soft stories that do not directly report the news as we do in stationary news. It is an unconventional creative story for writing in the world of journalism, during which the journalist makes fun of his skill and senses that enable him Whoever transported the reader to the land of the event by presenting a vivid and vivid picture of the event and reviving the human nature of the issues raised, as happened in the Pandora papers, it worked on collecting data and with all its seriousness, the press worked to expose and expose it in a manner close to people and a social character so that all classes of society understand this issue Which has conquered many peoples until now from time 'and those peoples who are waiting for solutions because in a simple and soft journalistic style, they realized the size of the problem and after the Pandora papers, these news stories became used in many different and multiple fields and this pushed journalists, magazines and news agencies to employ them in the service of humanitarian issues such as unemployment, wars and disasters And poverty, the news story cannot be similar to what writers and writers write in form and content, because the news story represents and It clarifies and seeks to educate people to understand the issues as they are on the ground, as the news story contains purely factual information and the journalist has no right to manipulate it, and the news story should be largely far from emotions so that its writer can write the story with its cruelty and mistakes, and like Pandora’s papers they dealt Journalists that the tax evaders and the corrupt, who have strong powers that can pursue them and have strong influence, can punish journalists, but the journalists have resisted all that fear and brought the truth to the people without fear of the influence of many corrupt and without fear of punishment. Thus, the journalists succeeded in writing the news story that will always be She is the one who reveals the secrets of corrupt people who oppress peoples and makers of tragedies...

    I think the most interesting and important part about telling the news stories is cartoon. Simply, words are restricted, they can tell the message clearly, but sometimes the journalist can not use some words because of authority, power or law, so he can face problems in telling truth and reveal the hidden story. But cartoons can tell the real story freely and safely, it can tell what words can not. It gives wide imagination to the journalist and reader to understand away from restrictions, so a journalist can be more honest and creative. For example in the cartoon included it shows the poor homeless and needs help, on the other hand a big ship as a symbol of rich people also it is big as indication of huge amount of money owned by them, which refers to lack of social quality, so cartoon means expressing reality.
    I think that what makes me more interested is explanation. For example a journalist can explain that hiding money in banks is often legal, but also it steals the poor opportunity for better life, so he can give a clear picture to the reader according to the information he get to.
    I think that perspective can show the journalist opinion because he can give conclusions based on his investigation. For example, he can say that people who could end the secrecy offshore are the one that benifiting, in other ways his perspective means that big companies are the only who can get the money in both sides in any way, apart from whatever the mean is, that means money is for rich and the poor can not get the benifit.

    Papers of tragedy and oppression of peoples are Pandora’s leaked papers. “For information, this is not the first time that we are watching leaks about bank accounts of political leaders around the world in tax evasion.” The subject confirms that it is not a coincidence and does not stem from a puzzled work, “but rather from those who have a clear and well-thought-out agenda so that every year and systematically expose new leaders and wealthy people.” Therefore, tax evasion can be understood in many different ways. There is a war going on in the world between the numbers of tax evasion that escalate every year, and many small countries have worked as mercenaries and servants for the rich of their regions to launder their money or evade taxation. Tax evasion and exposing its clients means losing that evasion of a lot of business and turning the evaders to another safe and stable haven. Again, I see another point of view, and it may be behind the breaches. It seeks tax justice and raises the issue annually through leaks in order to stir up global public opinion for an issue that has become today the most important problem facing the achievement of economic justice in the world. Some are for the purpose of revenge, abuse or material gain, but the most powerful question of all is where is the tax justice?? Tax justice is threatened around the world, as taxes are presented to the weak and the common people, and the rich enjoy tax exemptions, and profits are smuggled abroad, which always means a budget deficit is generated, as a result of which governments are unable to provide decent services to the people. other???

    1. The cartoon told me more about the news of the "Pandora Papers" Because when I saw the cartoon I learned that rich people were hiding the benefits that the people actually should know about underneath the shelter of the offshore companies. As shown in the last part of the cartoon, the ordinary people are unfortunately not given any chance to fight against the intolerant offshore benefits and their opinions or voices are kept shut and ignored in the humongous pile of avoided taxes. They allowed other people to suffer for their own wrongdoing!

    2. The tool that interested me was "perspective", it was so deep and really exposed how various people that can expose the secrets of offshore companies actually benefit from knowing these secrets. It clarified some terms which I had to use google to look for.

    3. "Document", really expresses the journalist's opinions because they can be worded in different ways to paint the picture the journalist is describing. There are also a variety of these documents that can be used, depending on the specific situation.

    Challenge: Social media is a very effective way of sharing news stories, as long as you make sure to emphasize that the "news" is verified and true, then yes social media is a good way to do that.

    1.In my opinion the cartoon tells me most about the news story of "Pandora Papers" as at a glance we could get the injustice happening to the poor people of any country that are in need of help like the ones shown in the deserted island and when they realize that they may be saved from the situations,they only fall into a trap by them who come in disguise of the saviors .That is the rich in stead of helping the poor community only do unjust to them keeping their own interest intact.That is shown in the lower left corner in the picture that the poor are abandoned with no help given to them by the rich community.They only want to hide their huge property by offshore taxation and money laundering.And to do so they just use the poor people to fulfill their ill motive.We could get the whole situation happening by observing only the cartoon picture shown in the news and for that it conveys the most about the news.

    2.For me the tool that seemed quite interesting in this regard is "perspective",that is the community who are able to make a change to the taxation issues of the mass people that is the rich themselves are getting benefits from it,when the ones responsible themselves are ignorant about the problem ,how could we even think of getting the solution?In this difficulty the poor always become the victim,but their misery is not being taken into account as the affluent always think of their own benefit when they have the power and authority to work for the common good of people.

    3.I think 'perspective' shows the journalists' own opinion as the statement mentioned was more of a hope or an assumption as it was said "the people that could ,'not would' end the secrecy of the offshore" that specifies the opinion of the investigative journalist.This reminds me of the saying ,"Ignorance really is blissful, especially for the powerful"The powerful group in our community are always ignorant of the rising problems created for their comfort.

    4.I believe other than the tools being given in the listing,the journalist could create a different blog on the web where the interviews of the related individuals(the rich as the exploiters) are added so that we could get to know about what they have to say on it,in this way it would be more captivating and the news story would get more viewers in my point of view.

ARE YOU SERIOUS! . it was really shocking .same thing when you say 99.1% of white Rhinoceros are dead and its about time to become extinct . this will make you think about it seriously .

    1. I think "perspectives" tells most about the news story because perspectives are always an important tool in knowing and analyzing any stories from different dimensions. If we focus on the perspectives of offshore taxation we will be able to know the sayings of rich people and companies on this topic and the stories of sufferings for this at different levels.
    2. The the thing that makes the whole story more interesting is the cartoon. it displays the whole story in a very easy language of brain. This illustration magnifies the sufferings of the submissive mass people and the indifference of responsible rich communities towards them.
    3. To me, it's explanation that shows more about the journalists opinions. In general, when someone is told to explain a definite situation everyone does it in their own way . Every journalists have their own way of expressing which gets manifested in their articles when they themselves explain it.
    Challenge: Journalists can also share a news story through writing articles on that definite issue. Article contains theories and many more topics that normally we don't know, it will attract the attention of viwers and also enrich their knowledge on that topic and help them to take more precise decisions. For example many people don't know much about the tax policies and offshore legacies, making people aware about these things will help them to interact with the story more.

    will delve a little into interpretations that I think are rational, if only for a moment, 'since I, after briefing the subject of Pandora's papers,' and after reading this article, I hope those who read it will express their opinion on that!! I sadly see that Pandora's Papers seek and make the poor poorer, as the huge amount of money in which companies have been opened in tax havens, the peoples have a right to it. Investigative journalists that that money will reach up to 32 trillion dollars. All of this money is money that governments and societies were supposed to invest in infrastructure and trying to help the poor, right?? This is the strongest reason that prompted businessmen to go to tax havens.” As for all social classes, especially those with low incomes who do not have the ability to hide their money in this way, “they bear the bulk of the tax burden.” While reading the topic, I was struck by the fact that the documents consist of about 12 million confidential documents. Among the 14 companies that provide financial services to those wishing to establish companies in tax havens, a project to open the file of tax havens and havens in which they establish their companies wide. The regulations included many famous artists, politicians, presidents and models. There are many sources of their wealth and reasons to hide them, but the common thing was their need for tax havens and what they provide from Protection and Confidentiality “The use of tax havens is not always associated with tax evasion operations,” but it can hide what is more dangerous and greater than all of this. Perhaps the main advantage of tax committees lies in the low cost of establishing companies and the flexibility of registration procedures for these companies, in addition to the confidentiality they give to the actual owners of companies. These reasons make tax havens ideal places for those looking for tools to launder money or hide money resulting from illegal gain. Let us put a question mark about the fate of the poor and their just right from those havens.

    To me Explanations tells me most about the news because many a times we hear a news but we don't know the topic of the news at that time explanations helps us to understand topic of the news and then we can know many a things about the news. only for explanations people can know about the crimes and other than understanding they can make themselves aware.
    Secondly, The cartoon makes me more interested because here a journalist try to put a topic using cartoons in a funny ay and attractive way. people love to think out of the box for that reason they are more interested to see a matter of big news in some cartoons.
    Lastly the perspectives shows the journalist's own opinion because here he puts up his thoughts and tells us about the incidents in a few sentences which is completely his own thoughts what he showing us and we can also know about different persons thoughts by this

    beside this journalists can arrange for a talkshow where the leaders/ guilties will face the question of the people it can be more useful than above four cause people will get the chance to question the guilty face to face which i think is more important

    In my opinion, the cartoon tells me the most about the offshore taxation case or THE PANDORA PAPERS.

    VISUALIZATION IS THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY TO EXPLAIN SOMETHING IN A WAY THAT LEAVES NO DOUBT ABOUT THE CASE OR SITUATION OR INCIDENT. " According to the MEDIAFIRST, "People love stories and good stories are memorable because they trigger an emotional response. Crafting storytelling into your presentation will make your messages much more memorable than a series of bullet points". ALONG WITH THAT, CARTOONS OR SUCH PRESENTATIONS HELP THE JOURNALIST TO GRASP THE ATTENTION AND INTEREST OF AUDIENCES.

    Later on, the PERSPECTIVE tool grabs the most of my attention and interest. Because it states, "The people that could end the secrecy offshore.. are the one benefiting from it". Well, this line shows that how biased our current world is and how everything can be so disorganized in an organized way. That's why this tool makes me more interested.

    And at last, the Explanation shows the journalists’ own opinions. Because the explanation is from the journalist himself. Here, the journalists try to explain the situation in their way. Along with that, it gives everyone a clear idea about the situation. That's why it includes the journalists’ own opinions.

    1. The cartoon tells me the most about the offshore taxation beacause it helped me to visualize the whole scenario. It is a simple technique for the industrialists, politicians and rich people to establish small or large scale business in poor countries to avoid taxes. At the same time they buy valuable resources and manpower at a low cost beacuse most of the time the third world countries can't afford to prepare their resources and man power to be sold at a legit price.

    2. The numbers make me most interested beacause i personally believe that whatever the issue is statistics say a lot more than mere words do. The statistics when presented with proper reference easily proves the validity of the accusations. According to the given context pandora papers are based on 53% documents, 24% images, 10% emails,
    4.3% spreadsheets and 8.3% other things. This was good enough information to grab my attention.

    3. Perspectives show the journalists' own opinion. He said that those who are supposed to keep an eye on taxation are the ones reaping its fruit. Although the journalist brings before us confidential information, he isnt aware of the cause. Sometimes it is seen that people are forced to do wrong. Politicians and other influentials may constantly keep them under threats and pressure and finding no help they are bound to go with the flow.

    Data visualization is another way a journalist can share a news story. This is a bit better than the mentioned four ways beacuse data visualization helps people to get a grasp of the whole situation with just glimpse and at the same time lets people separate the facts from the fiction. Data visualization is basically to present graphical information like charts, pies, histograms, bar diagrams and a lot more. These are easy to understand, aesthetic to look at and a lot more productive in sharing a story like the pandora papers.

    1. I believe The CARTOON was one of the best examples to show how cruel offshore transactions can be even though it is termed as legal but it is unfair, unjust and its a way of how people are taking advantages to avoid tax and get benefitted for their own lives. The cartoon thoroughly describes the poor and destitute peoples are in grave need of financial support but in the name of support the rich people are taking the by establishing companies and industries. This represents how the rich people are hiding their unfair and unjust activities under the cloak of charity. Not only it is benefitting the unjust but also it is harming the destitute residing in the countries who desperately needs help.
    2. The "explanation" file represents the unjust and illegal means which are frequently used by various great personals in the world and some leaders of the worlds specially the celebrities around the world. The main nail in the path are the politicians, in the name of justice some of them are doing illegal dealings behind the scene. In our country almost every product has a added value to it which is called VAT and even the street beggers of our country contibute to the economy by paying the VAT ( Value added Tax) when they buy a product for their families. The main reasons for VAT is mostly for the Tax Invasion and illegal means of adding VAT. Various organizations without the consulting of the government add the VAT for their personal gain which is illegal but the head of such organizations are so popular under the cloak of justice that small theories or leaks of information about them will not affect then if the information doesn't have solid proof and evidence also the support of the people.
    3. I think the tool "perspective" is the greatest tool as through perspective a journalist can actually find clues and the evidence that they would need to prove the law breakers wrong. Like think of this way put your self in the shoes of the law breakers think a bit differently than others and try to bring variations in the logic that is going to needed for the journalists all these aspects can be attained through perspectives. Realization comes through one's perspective so Perspective really highlights the journalists’ own opinions.
    4. I think one the greatest tool other than the four presented above is "Animation". Through out the years animation has gained huge popularity in the minds of both children and adults. A short animated clip can bring about a change in each and everyone's lives. Specially children as you can see a racist' a dictator' a selfish narcissist isn't born they are made. The Environment around them influences their minds and personalities so journalists can stop the creation of such bad personalities through Animation and short video clips that will inspire each and every child in the world and lead them to a better life in a better world. As for Adults it is actually quite hard as they have already been created in such a level t is almost impossible but as i said even the worst of the beasts have a bit of sympathy inside them, when they will see their children are learning the good sides of life it will automatically cause them to change too. Not only that when the people of the society will change in the upcoming future those law breaking peoples will loose the influence which was once their strength. The influence of a good society can bring about a change in everyone.

    Extra Challenge:
    What other ways can journalists share a news story. And how useful are they compared to the four we have listed above?
    The other way of sharing a news story could be late night and news satire television programs like “The Daily Show”. Television news that draws comedy and satire from recent news stories, political figures, media organizations centering self-referential humor can attract more audience than a basic news program. It can be useful like cartoons, perspectives, numbers and explanations because the circle is not limited to presenting news but also adds comedy into it. Thus more people feel interested to spend their time with a little comedy as well as learning about recent news.

    1_ for answering the first question I think cartoon tells us more: I believe that a form of two-dimensional art and depiction of visual art, although the definition assigned to cartoon has changed over time, the modern use has led to its definition of an unrealistic or semi-realistic drawing intended for satire, caricature, humor, or any such artistic style .
    The artist who prepares the cartoon is known as the caricaturist. The term originated in the Middle Ages and was initially described as a preparatory drawing for a type of art, such as panel painting, fresco painting, textile science, and color painting on glass. In the nineteenth century, it was referred to as humorous illustrations in magazines and newspapers, and in the early twentieth century onward it was referred to as comic strips and animated films.


    2- about question two explanation make me interested in reading: I think that in explaining and analyzing press contents, with the importance of focusing on the need to reveal its dimensions and implications.

    Contributes to the presentation of topics that occupy an important place in society and public opinion.

    It helps to expose corruption in all its forms.

    Contributes to predicting the future course of subjects.

    Contribute to convincing the reader of the importance and seriousness of the issue at hand.

    Contribute to winning public opinion in favor of the issues and problems raised.

    Contribute to alerting officials and public opinion with the importance of focusing their concerns on all negative situations, such as alerting them to the danger of corruption, whether financial or administrative.


    3- about the one that help in expressing the journalist opinion is numbers: I believe that journalistic work in all its forms should be based on collecting information, analyzing it and presenting it to the receiving public. In many cases, the information obtained from its various sources is based on numbers, or the sources provide numbers only, and this in itself is a work that needs workers in the media sector. An exceptional effort before presenting it in its final form to a diverse audience of cultures, habits and interests, and since we have entered an era of diversity of tools and mechanisms for transmitting news or media material, and the competition between them has become so intense in attracting the public that there is no longer a national or international media that considers itself the most popular and followed by the recipients, which is What is confirmed by local and global statistics, the numbers contained in the narrative are also no less important than other news items that the media race to convey to the masses. Accordingly, it has become imperative for the media to present these numbers in attractive templates, and the measure of success will undoubtedly be the extent of the impact of these numbers and the formulas presented in them on the public’s discussions and deliberations in what is known in the media as echo return.

    I think that the explanations tell people the most in a news story, as it usually provides the core fact (what has happened when it happened and sometimes why it happened), quotes, (people's thoughts, and opinions on the subject, or eyewitness accounts.) and sometimes the journalists opinion on what has happened. I feel that a reader can get the most information out of this because it gives the most fleshed-out answer to the headline.

    In this circumstance though, with the choices provided, I think that the cartoon tells the most on what is happening: The people stranded on the island I think have more than one interpretation-first that people who put their taxes offshore are damaging the community, as they are not contributing as much as the can to it, therefore damaging individuals that need services that are fueled by taxes -like hospitals. Secondly, the people who are on the island are the people in the countries that the offshore money is being sent to, and it is creating somewhat of a burden for them because they are participating in something that is potentially illegal.

    The comic in my opinion is the easiest to understand, as it provides a more lighthearted and approachable way of showing a not-so-lighthearted event -which may bring comfort to the reader. The drawing shows more emotion sometimes than words on a page can, which is another reason that the drawing is in this case more effective than the others.

    As usual, I think that all of the tools are important in a news story and they work together to create the news that we read, one of them on their own in a news article would not be as effective in the slightest but I think that the comic is the easiest to digest.

      The most common means used in disseminating information is the newsletter in which the journalist talks about interpretations, but a large percentage of them are not attracted to it,In your opinion, how can we use cartoon as a means of illustration so that it is clear to everyone and does not need a vast imagination to understand?

    We are now going to talk about the best way to publish news. I think there are many ways, but I chose this method because most journalists do it. The method is short ads. This is a quick and energizing method that spreads the news in a great way. Also, on the one hand, you cannot publish it now. I will say the reason: is that people hate ads. I think most people do this: turn off the phones when ads come, or skip the ads for this, I advise that they make it uncrossed so that they cannot change it.

    To me the cartoon expresses the matter of pandora papers more clearly and evidently. The starting of the cartoon clearly depicts the offshore taxation, companies and banks. Normally, in order to narrate a news a hint of creativeness is necessary for attracting attention to its full capacity. Cartoons are the best way of narrating any news since it has both knowledge and attracts attention. For me, the cartoons depict a more clearer version of pandora papers than any other media because people usually prefer visual stuffs instead of data and all. So, to me cartoons are the right tools which make a news story interesting as well as informative and attractive. Journalists have the freedom of expressing their mindsets through drawing things which they maybe cannot express through words out of formalities. A journalist can easily depict the whole scenerio of the story in simple drawings which he might find difficulty in writing down. All in all, cartoons are a better tool according to me.

        In reply to your wonderful question, i would say that cartoons might miss some of the complex matters of today. Even though they have the capability of expressing things in the simplest of ways, there are matters which are quite complicated enough to turn into simple. Controversial topics cannot be depicted through cartoons since they require seriousness in their arena which cartoons fail to provide. So, this might be some things which cartoons fail to express.

    1. The cartoon tells me most about the news story. Because, in the cartoon, it was clear as day to me what the rich people do to save themselves from taxation. It also shows that the poor are the victims of inequality in this regard as they still have to pay tax. It is evident that a picture is worth a thousand words in the cartoon.

    2. The numbers make me interested more than the others because there is a lot of information in the numbers that can be derived. Even though the information is not evident at first glance, in the end, numbers give more accurate information. And it is also possible to make very accurate assumptions based on numbers. For example, Google uses this technique to accurately predict many of its services like navigation, etc.

    3. The perspectives show the journalists' own opinions. Because, a perspective is completely a personal opinion. As such, it will naturally be someone’s own opinion of something. So, if the journalists give a perspective, that will show their own opinion.

    The journalists can also share a news story through real life pictures if it is applicable. Pictures always catch people’s attention. And especially if it is related to a topic. When the journalists are able to present pictures of a situation, the news is more accepted and information rich. As I said before, a picture is worth a thousand words. I believe that pictures are a great way to share news stories.

    1_ I think that the cartoon told me more about the news story, because it can convey the idea and the event in an easy and simplified way to all members of society in different cultures and scientific levels, and so that it can communicate the story to children in an easy and beautiful way through cartoons and cartoons that carry a meaningful message.

    2_ The tool that makes me most interested is "perspectives"; Because the points of view are the place through which we see the world around us, and the difference in points of view has advantages, including allowing us to come up with new ideas and search for solutions and multiple approaches. Different minds reach it, and one of the benefits of difference may be the integration of views.

    3_ The tool that shows the private opinions of journalists is "perspectives", because in it the opinion of journalists is expressed quite frankly and is expressed and invites the reader to express his point of view.

    Other ways journalists can share a news story and how useful it can be:
    1_ Drama and plays: where the theater embodies reality in its many forms, and it finds solutions to the problems of society and increases the level of awareness among people.
    2_ Songs: where it works to provide people, especially children, with knowledge and concepts in an interesting and likable way, and to give them noble qualities and ideals.

    1. According to me, the "cartoon" tells the most about the news story as it truly depicts the offshore banking system. It is said that offshore banking is not illegal. But it really depends on the intention and sadly most of the rich people do it with the intent of tax evasion. In that sense it's really unfair. In the picture the poor people trapped in an island are waiting for the rich to rescue them. But sadly they are not rescuing them rather they are seeking shelter in the offshore banks.
    2. The "numbers" are what making me the most interested. Seeing the statistics of the leaked pandora papers, I can realize the depth of the incidence. This is really interesting how so many information were collected by the journalists.
    3. Lastly, I think "perspectives" shows the journalists' own opinion because perspective is something on which one's opinion depends on. The quote says that the people who were supposed to end the secrecy are having benefits from that instead.

    The cartoon tool gives me the clearest picture of the main theme of the entire story. The cartoon speaks the story of sufferings and dishonesty of the rich very boldly. While, some people are hoping to be rescued from a far off island, the rich people crush their hope at once while using the place as a safe zone to hide their illegal wealth. Visuals, graphics and cartoons are easy to understand and they are interesting at the same time. Taking a look at the numerical values and statistics I had gotten a rough idea of the whole Pandora paper story. Seeing the visual cartoon where the sufferings of the poor and the oppression by the rich are clearly depicted, I understood the ‘Pandora Paper’ concept more clearly.
    The cartoon depiction of the story was surely the most interesting tool about this Pandora Paper story. It highlights how the rich people are tearing out the hopeful minds of the poor sufferers who are struggling to survive. The unethical rich population are never satisfied with their possessions and on the quest to their grabbing more of the wealth; the poor people are oppressed, their basic needs unmet.
    The tool “PERSPECTIVES”, is where the ‘Investigative journalists’ have expressed their very own opinion regarding the Pandora paper story. The journalists’ states that those who are aware of the whole offshore secrecy issue are the ones who are to take the steps to end it, which is sort of metaphorical and also urging for the benefiters to stop their illegal works of offshore secrecy to avoid taxes to be used in welfare of the mass people.
    The numerical tool, to me seems too dull and boring. Instead, some data charts and graphics can draw more attention and easier depiction of the story. For example to explain the Pandora story the journalists can use some news headlines, data charts and using bullet points to highlight and summarize the whole information instead of the single statement of explanation.

    1_ In my opinion, the use of the explanation tool, because the journalist speaks frankly when speaking and explains the events and facts that occur in this world.

    2_ I also see that the cartoon style attracts people's attention and their eagerness to watch the news channel. Animation method shows people beautiful pictures of events, which makes them enjoy watching the news and not get bored.

    3_ There, too, the journalist’s perspectives can be used: because the journalist can speak his opinion without lying and work to communicate his voice and the voice of the people to the community, and this is what I prefer.

    News represents an important aspect in the world of media and journalism and in our contemporary world.
    1 My opinion is that the transmission of news through cartoons tells us more about the world in terms of taxes or changes them, because when we look at the first figure, we can understand that the rich hide the external benefits that the world should know and that they are under the shelter of foreign companies, as it is found in the last figure that it does not give ordinary people any opportunities to fight taxes.

    2 My opinion is also that the honest views of the journalists are very important because it is those journalists who reveal the facts and secrets and reap the benefits from them.
    Taxes are the sums imposed by the state on individuals and organizations with a percentage of the profits they obtain in return for their work. Income tax is a major component in most countries. The rates vary from one country to another in exchange for the services that these countries provide to their citizens (or taxpayers), and the services provided by countries vary, including Whoever provides educational, health, transportation and transportation services to its citizens in return for income tax.
    And that there are other ways, in my opinion, that the journalist can use, such as interviewing families or people in public places, or creating programs directly through the Internet.
    3 My opinion of the journalists is important because they are the ones who reveal tricks and lies and are not afraid of anything and they are honest from my point of view.

    The Pandora Papers is a leak of nearly 12 million documents that reveals secret fortunes, tax evasion and, in some cases, money laundering by some of the world's leaders and wealthy people. More than 600 journalists in 117 countries have been researching 14 sources for months, and have come up with stories that are successively publishing files from this week. The data was obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) in Washington DC, which was working with more than 140 media organizations in the largest global investigation of its kind ever. BBC Panorama and Britain's Guardian newspaper led the UK investigation.

    The Pandora papers refer to tax havens, which are one of the aspects of the sterility, brutality and injustice of the global capitalist system, which has long been reflected on the peoples of poor countries and the owners of the middle social classes. And that I am from this place, the competent authorities must consider the return of rights looted for the benefit of the owners of capital and the wealthy. Is there someone who preserves their rights or do they have no voice or advocate supporting them and demanding economic justice for them like the rest? Do we find someone to support them?? Can we find someone to protect their rights from theft?? Is there a law that protects the weak and marginalized?? Let's contribute to raising their voice loudly so that they obtain their rights...

    1.-I think the most about the news story is explanation ' because we have the a biliary to think criticize and possess knowledge that is useful to person in various areas of his life
    2- the cartoon pictures 'because it helps to clarify which method was used in the images that come in rapid succession and give the impression of movement next
    3- l think that cartoons in the press opinion are the best, because the journalist communicates the message in general and will convey it to people in a way that they understand ' the big and the small ' so people will understand the big and that is better for the joi and the people
    the challenge; video clips, audio recording or graphics

    1: I think that the EXPLANATION conveys the news well because it conveys the reality and events in appropriate words and phrases. Through the explanation, the journalist talks about the subject in detail and more clearly, which makes it easier for people to understand quickly. Through the explanation, the journalist can add some suggestions.



    2: The CARTOON is the most exciting thing that makes me feel excited, because through it I can see what the journalist means and makes me imagine the situation and understand the topic better and more exciting. Through the cartoon, it can arouse the interest of children, help them learn and increase their culture
    Through cartoons, people who cannot read can understand events and news



    3: The PERSPECTIVES is the most thing that shows the private opinions of journalists because it makes them express their opinions in the thing they write freely. Through the journalist’s point of view, it can encourage people to express their opinions and can help people, such as the journalist in the magazine he writes suggests to the owner of the company that He contracts with another company and thus he can increase the company's shares and thus increase the profit and thus the journalist has helped the people.

    1-I think that explanation are the most important in conveying the news to the listeners, and it must be interpreted in order to convey the idea seriously and clearly and not limited to the event, so it must clarify the event and the reason...


    2-I care about the cartoon more, as it takes me to the world of imagination, so the idea or news arrives in a fun and beautiful way, bearing influences that attract us to attention and go to the world of imagination...

    3- I think that the perspectives of the journalist are what appear. After giving the news and communicating it to the listener, the journalist gives opinions and suggestions, not his opinion, but whatever reaction.


    What other ways can journalists share a news story?
    The main components of the event (I mean here the elements of the event and not the elements of the news) include:
    time
    Place
    Persons associated with Al Hadd cover differently each time and can diversify the methods and angles of coverage by taking advantage of the diversity of the personalities involved. Inclusion of video interviews within the news coverage.

    Insert video clips for specific angles of the event.

    Coverage includes "multimedia" files.

    Use of interactive maps and graphics🖤⭐

    Another way by which the journalists can share a new story except the above mentioned four can be through their poetry. One can even provide the inner meaning of the poetry to the general people without mentioning the name behind the acts and the facts directly. Maybe it seems to be illogical and you may think that if we don't even know who is the person behind the unfair deed then how can we take proper steps. Here the noteworthy fact is that I am speaking about the extremists. Sometimes these powerful authorities stand so strong that it becomes hard to stand against them directly. In that case criticizing them in such a way that, they cannot even understand whereas the words of the journalists successfully reach us.
    Maybe it’s less effective than the four other mentioned facts. But frankly speaking, this helps a lot. And contribute effectively in case of any renaissance. I am from Bangladesh. We got independence in 1971. At that time the condition of our communication system was very poor. If any journalist wrote anything directly against the Pakistan, it led them to death. But that couldn’t stop them. They often wrote and published unnamed poetries which gave our liberation war a drastic increase of motion towards our victory.
    That’s why I think that poetry can be a great way for the journalists to share a new story.

    The numbers that is statistics tells me the most about the story because I can picture a very concrete situation of what is happening about this issue .
    For understanding any new concept like this I need to know what is happening in a very detailed manner and numbers are the best possible way of doing this . I also can learn the intensity of the incident . This makes me very much interested .
    The journalists can show their own opinion with numbers easily because he or she can express their own openion easily after representing numbers as our cognitive thinking is much better with visual representation like graphs , charts etc .
    I believe documentary which shows everything in such a manner that is how the journalist first come to know about that would be a great option as the journalist knows the difficulty he faced while working on that project .

    For me it is the cartoon that tells me the most about the news story. In the cartoon, we see clearly that the rich comes to a small island with their treasures to avoid tax; offshore tax shelter. There were people in the island seeking for help, but the rich did not pay a heed to think about helping them. Rather, as projected in the cartoon – their offshore tax shelter causes them to suffer more. in Pandora papers we see similar image off offshore tax shelter.

    ‘perspective’ made me most interested ; it reads- “the people that could end the secrecy offshore are the ones that are benefiting from it ” . it is like asking the problem to solve itself – problem is the solution! Interesting, huh? If The involved personalities had the willingness to end offshore tax shelter , then, such problems ( offshore tax shelter, money laundering ) would not have existed in the first place. World leaders, politicians, public officials – whom we believe with important decisions that impact our lives ; those people who are supposed to guard the ordinary people’s rights are doing such odds ! I remember roman poet-philosopher Juvenal say – “who will guard the guards?”

    I think ‘explanation’ is what shows the journalists’ own opinion because while explaining an event , a journalist creates an exposure of incidents that took place with logic, facts, aftermaths and through this, the inner thought of the journalist is reflected. As in this news story explanation, it says like - hiding money offshore to avoid tax is not legal . here we see, after studying the Pandora papers , a journalist can come to a conclusion making his own opinion through explanation.

    Challenge :
    journalists can use ‘short films’ to share a news story .

    because: Short film is a very popular format for entertainment now a days. Availability of internet and video streaming platforms like you tube and social sites – facebook, instagram etc have made it widespread along the globe . An unexpected and shocking event like Pandora papers that includes the involvement of world leaders in offshore tax shelter and money laundering is very probable to go viral through short films and thus the story can be shared with much people.

    Comparison with other four ways : many people find it monotonous to read a news story that is told through huge explanations and when various perspectives are involved in it. If the story is a lengthy one, then , time also comes to consideration. Again, numbers give an overview of the event but no detailed descriptions can be provided . lastly, all sorts of stories may not fit in to be presented as “cartoons”.

    On the contrary, watching short films is like watching movies or enjoying music- mostly enjoying and not that monotonous as reading pages after pages. Detailed events can be presented in a short time which numbers can not . and lastly, any news stories can be presented with facts through short film.

    I think the ''Cartoon'' and the ''Explanation'' tool explains the situation best. People generally look for the easiest and most colorful way to understand things. The ''Cartoon'' tool does them both and the ''Explanation'' tool explains the situation very nicely.
    From the point of view of making me interested, the ''Cartoon'' tool takes the cake again as it will generally catch peoples eyes. ''Numbers'', ''Perspectives'' and ''Explanations'' may explain the situation very well, but people will generally gloss over it because people don't want to pay attention to words and long numbers as people's attention spans are decreasing. In this case the ''Cartoon'' tool is the best option as people love cartoons and will pay attention to them.

    The ''Cartoon'' also expresses the journalists' own opinion, as the ''Explanation'' is not an opinion, it is as its name suggests, an explanation. The ''Numbers'' and ''Perspectives'' also don't count as opinions because they are just showing the situation as it is.

    So I think the ''Cartoon'' tool is the best way to express a situation.

    1.I think the cartoon tells me the most about the story. Because from the cartoon I get the idea that the case presented in the cartoon is related to the PANDORA PAPERS incident. In the cartoon depicts that some helpless people are expecting to get help but they are being drowned more by the offshore transactions by the ship of the rich. Here we can consider the helpless people as the ordinary people who are weighed down in the society due to the offshore transactions of the rich in order to reduce the taxes which is really unfair for the general people.
    2.Now, the part that makes me most interested are the numbers.Because in order to get all these numbers the journalists from International Consortium of Investigative Journalists had to undertake a lot of difficulties including risky jobs and time consuming investigations just so that they can bring the whole matter to light.Besides they also had to maintain their connectivity in these situations which is really tough in order publish the full numbers .
    3.Lastly, i think that the 'perspectives 'part seem to be the opinions of the journalists . Because through their perspectives they are trying to stand a theory regarding the case of Pandora Papers as in the case of perspective stated here it says the people who can end the secrets are getting benefitted.In the same way the journalists try to make various theories centering major incidents .

    Tells you the most about the news story? Why?

    From my point of view “CARTOONS” show the most about the new stories.
    Because in the cartoon a true overall picture of the whole situation is represented, that is, the rich people are hiding their money in the offshore countries which are poor. And the poor are getting crushed under the steamroller of the corrupt rich people.

    Makes you most interested? Why?

    The cartoon makes me most interested because it shows the minute picture in a frame and when I first saw it created a wish to know more about this incident.

    Shows the journalists’ own opinions? Why?

    The perspectives show the journalist's own opinion because here the journalist is making a statement that is coming from the point of view of the journalist. The statement might either be correct or incorrect but at the end of the day it comes from the journalist's mind so its showing the journalist's opinion

    In my opinion, among the above factors, Number tells us the most about the news story. Because the issue of offshore money occurrence is nothing new. But the its increasing number is what makes us feel worried about. The number of papers and documents this time is way larger than the previous times. And this is what catches our attention. People , after seeing the news, will be concerned more about the situation of the world. This will lead them towards searching more information about the issue.

    From the above 4 , perspective makes me most interested. Well, if I say about others, cartoon is a very powerful tool in catching the attention of public. But the duration of its staying in our mind is limited. Whereas, perspective can both catch our attention and keep a long term impact in our memory.
    Perspective is what makes me think twice and take a deep look. It is what makes us able to think,analyze and form our own opinion about any issue. Which later leads towards sharing of individual opinions with one another. And there lies the success of newspapers. Newspaper aims not only at informing people but also helps people make their own opinions and decision on a particular issue.

    "perspective shows the journalist's own opinion". As they can express the detailed portion and give us the idea of the both sides of any news in a clear manner through it. For example: after collecting information about any issue, a journalist would relate that with the lives of common people, nation and the world. Then analyzing the impact of that issue, a journalist would form his/her own perspective and share that with the mass people.

    To me, one other way is " through story". Data, information, explanation can inform us about any issue, cartoon can stir our conscience fast, these are true. But story is what makes the "human connection". Story is what creates our emotion, feelings. For instance, the news of "several people dying in any other country may create a temporary impact on me". But, " story of the struggle of one family there and a child's screaming for its death mother" will surely stir me up and will remain in my mind for a longer period of time. Story is what though which I can relate myself to the people who are suffering and who are the victims. Thus, compared to the mentioned tools, through
    " connecting and relatable stories", Journalists can share news.

        Well, I think a lot happens behind the scenes when a journalist discloses something to the whole world. Anything that might offend a person, group, organization or nation politically, socially, or economically will stir up more trouble for the journalists and result in a clash between the media spotlight and the journalists along with news reporting organizations. So to avoid facing any repercussions, a journalist has to scrupulously think through before making something visible to the whole world.

    1. Cartoons tell me the most about the news story. I think Art is the best way to express our feelings. And cartoons actually belong to art. Cartoons are drawn with different artistic patterns, expressions and analogies. Its a great way of creationism. One single cartoon can help expressing a huge article. Again its easier to make cartoons reach more people within less time. Reading and understanding an article requires literacy on the particular language the article is written in. But the cartoons don't require any special literacy. So The cartoons are universal in a sense. These are the easy way to express any news story and contain lots of information and theories. That's why I think that cartoons tell me the most about the news story.

    2. Among the mentioned for tools, perspectives make me most interested. I think in most cases its seen that the news stories are described taking a particular aspect righteous. Any other aspect proving our supporting aspect is taken as wrong. But its not always like that. A news story can be wrong from my point of view but it can also be right from others' view.
    But if a journalist can describe the matter from both point of view, It will help us to understand the real fact underlain by the news story. It helps us to truly understand and judge any matter. That's why perspectives make me most interested.

    3. I think the explanations show the journalists' own opinions.
    Cartoons are mainly the picture of the reality shown in a different manner. Numbers are the results of the research of the journalists shown with graphs or numerical formats. Journalists don't have that much scope to show there thoughts through numbers. Again, In case of perspective, the journalists requires to be universal and create a presentation true for all.
    But in case of explanations, the journalists get the real scope to share what they actually think about any news story. They can give their opinion there, judge those opinions thyself and create a better conclusion from own thoughts. That's why I think that the explanations show the journalists' own opinion.

    The first tool that is the 'Cartoon' tells me the story most. Because in this picture we can see the poor are helpless and they need someone to carry them away. But the rich are throwing huge offshore tax shelter that are suppressing them rather than helping. In Offshore Finance it exactly happens.
    The wealthy keep the money to build intergenerational fortunes, creating a new class and increasing the divide between the global haves and have-nots. Multinational companies use the extra cash to reward shareholders and edge out smaller competitors. Countries that need tax revenue the most lose more tax money, as a percentage of GDP, than wealthy countries. And the poor suffer at the worst.

    For next question the tool that makes me more interested is 'Perspective'. Because for as long as I have been reading it one word is running around my mind that is offshore company and what it is. What is offshore and how someone could end the secrecy who are benefiting from it. It applies that I have to research for those terms and words and easily found about the pandora papers, offshore tax shelter and companies, how they are destroying the poor class and making benefits, many celebrities and big personalities who have been hiding taxes using the companies etc. So I found it the most interesting as it lead me to most of the detailed information by just one simple line.

    Next I think the 'Numbers' tool shows the journalist opinion as we know the journalist were the ones who have been trying to leak the news and they did. It disclosed a dirty secret of the higher class and some people whom we ideally follow. It shows that the number of documents are very huge in number so it implies hey had to put a lot of work and unity to gather all these.

    1. From my point of view, cartoons are the most effective and enriched media for exposing the leaks of Pandora Papers. A picture is worth a thousand words. And its sense can be understood by people of all ages, races, and professions because it is a universal language. So, if anyone wants to speak up against the prevailing corruption, money laundering and offshore properties, the cartoon is the most efficient medium.

    2. There is an old saying, "Put yourself in others' shoes." So, in this regard "Perspective" seems the most interesting tool to me. Because it is really hard to control the temptation nowadays. But to fulfill the temptation, the people in the power are neglecting the interest of the proletariats, they are earning money in a non-legitimate way and then hiding their evildoing in illegal ways as well. If they think of their deeds from the perspective of the state, from the perspective of the general mass, they will realize the sufferings and trauma they have caused. Even if the least amount of humanity is present in them, they will try not to continue the anguish and distress of the general people. For this reason, "Perspective" seems the most interesting and meaningful tool to me.

    3. The tool "Document" shows the journalists’ own opinions. If writings (email, report, statistics, spreadsheet) are not written with an effort, they lose their value. That's why the journalists have to present their documents using their creativity. As they hand these documents over with their creativity, these belong to them, these are their assets, these are their thoughts, these are their opinion.

        I believe cartoons are meant for all ages, what matters here is the context being depicted. If it's about something complicated, then it'll be an arduous task for kids to understand the topic. But I must say, visually representing something without the hassle of language barrier comes in handy when trying to explain things to the whole world.

    From my POV the CARTOON tells me more about the news about The Pandora Papers.
    Because we can easily understand from the cartoon that the rich are hiding their offshore taxes from all for their own benefits. But they are using the poor people and they are the sufferers and they are kept shut. That's why one can easily understand any context from these animations/cartoons rather than stats or media headlines.
    The PESPECTIVES makes me more interested and curious also. And I think it also shows the journalists' own opinions. It says about those who are able to unravel the mystery of the offshore company are benefiting from it. As the grands operate things ,we always don’t know the truth from media, newspapers or whatever. But the investigative journalists spend months or years researching and preparing a report on a single wrongdoing. So I think the sayings above are the journalist' own opinion & it won't be bad if I get through more of the reports as I already know the context.

    1_ Cartoon: I think that in modern printed media, cartoon is a type of art and is usually comic with intent. This use dates back to 1843 when Punch magazine applied this term to the satirical drawings that were present in its pages, especially the drawings of the artist John Leech. The mockery began on the grand historical preparatory drawings on the walls in the then new Palace of Westminster. The original nickname for these drawings was Mr. Punch in the Face and the new nickname "Cartoon" was intended to be satirical, a reference to inflate the subjective attitudes of the political men in the Palace of Westminster. Modern one-drawer graphics often found in magazines consist of a single graphic with a printed caption placed under or (oftenPlaced much lower than that custom speech balloon.

    2_perspectives:The press is a manifestation of freedom of expression, and this freedom finds its basis in declarations, international charters, constitutions of countries, and internal laws of countries. By performing this task, the journalist must be granted some rights when practicing the profession of journalism, which are: his right to obtain information, his right to attend conferences and meetings, and not to prejudice what papers and documents he possesses related to his journalistic work.

    3- The numbers are endless and varied in their aims, including what is financial or related to the high prices and their rates of rise, or indicates a turnout or abstention from political, cultural or social participation through objection, or refers to victims and human numbers and other various indications such as opinion polls regarding various issues.

    Here, the journalist’s tasks do not stop when transferring numbers in an abstract narration way, as it is one of the fatal mistakes that drives the public to refrain from following up. It is not the tasks of polling centers, statistical centers and institutions, or ministries to explain the values ​​and meanings of numbers as much as they are among the tasks of workers in the media sector, taking into account Consider that the ability of journalists to analyze and humanize numbers is not equal, which requires training and perhaps study courses in colleges The media is what enables the media to present the numbers in a more clear and understandable way, and simply the recipient can adapt his life and take his attitude towards it.

    1_ I think that the method of perspective is the one that tells me more about the news, because that ability that some have, which enables the journalist to change the behaviors, convictions and actions of any person on the subject that the journalist talks about, and makes them more supportive of his idea.
    2_ I think that cartoons are what makes me the most fun because cartoons are considered one of the most influential methods in the educational process and information dissemination, because they have a very important factor, which is attracting attention, and animations have a magical effect in a task like this, through cheerful colors, and cartoon sounds, The funny characters, and the interesting stories, attract people to watch the news.
    3_ In my opinion, the explanation shows the opinion of the journalist more because it is a method of critical and systematic thinking that is easy to use that helps people clarify their ideas, because it mentions the subject in an easy and simple way that anyone can understand, and because it explains the meaning of the news, and because it gives examples of the news so that it is understood Hear more.
    And another way to broadcast the news is for the journalist to tell people the news by not talking and just being silent and showing some pictures and movements and some of the facial expressions that show the viewer the idea and opinion of the journalist and make him occupy his mind because in this way there is excitement for the viewer’s mind and makes him more Enjoy the news.

    In my opinion, explanations tell me the most about news story. It explains all the subject matters very clearly, the is no ways for misunderstandings or conflict, tells us the alpha and omega of the cosmos.

    Obviously , 'cartoons' makes me the most interested, the headline is explained in such a creative way in this tool! The story is so worldly and conventional! People who cannot read, can understand the pandora papers news with cartoons.

    I think the tool 'perspectives' shows the journalists' opinion the most, a journalist's mind a power house of thoughts and talks, which he himself relates with riddle-rods. So in 'perspectives', they can leave thoughts, with respect to every perspect, which benefits the public also.

    News represents an important aspect in the world of media and journalism and in our contemporary world.
    1 My opinion is that the transmission of news through cartoons tells us more about the world in terms of taxes or changes them, because when we look at the first figure, we can understand that the rich hide the external benefits that the world should know and that they are under the shelter of foreign companies, as it is found in the last figure that it does not give ordinary people any opportunities to fight taxes.

    2 My opinion is also that the honest views of the journalists are very important because it is those journalists who reveal the facts and secrets and reap the benefits from them.
    Taxes are the sums imposed by the state on individuals and organizations with a percentage of the profits they obtain in return for their work. Income tax is a major component in most countries. The rates vary from one country to another in exchange for the services that these countries provide to their citizens (or taxpayers), and the services provided by countries vary, including Whoever provides educational, health, transportation and transportation services to its citizens in return for income tax.
    And that there are other ways, in my opinion, that the journalist can use, such as interviewing families or people in public places, or creating programs directly through the Internet.
    3 My opinion of the journalists is important because they are the ones who reveal tricks and lies and are not afraid of anything and they are honest from my point of view.

    1- I think the Perspectives tool is important in clarifying the news as it shapes one's point of view (whether or not it is thought reflexively)
    Which concepts can be understood by
    And the outstanding characteristics of the realizing world
    and reasons that are understood to be relevant and powerful
    And any credible conclusions?
    It is considered the gateway to societal change and a sign of civilized development because a single point of view does not create development and creativity
    In addition, the fear of releasing freedom of expression and working to silence the voices expressing their needs may constitute counter-pressure and exacerbate tension and fear.
    Therefore, the journalist must represent the views, because it works to think about the text, press and news stories, etc., and increases the sympathy and solidarity of the community in the hope of making wise decisions.
    It is beneficial for individuals and societies as the point of view theory is the place through which we see the world around us, and whatever the preference of that place, its location tends to focus and pay attention to some natural images of society and ignore some other images, and some synonyms of the viewpoint are vision and concept. And the situation and appearance, noted that eachThese words assume a specific location in terms of time or space that can be observed, without losing sight of personal values ​​and style.
    The theory researchers emphasized the usefulness of the concept of nature, or the daily experimentation of knowledge. One's view (whether or not thought reflexively) constitutes which concepts can be understood, which claims are previously heard and understood, what features of the world are perceived, reasons are understood to be relevant and powerful, and which conclusions are credible.

    2- I think that the cartoon tool is the most interesting for me because there are values ​​such as cooperation, honesty, honesty ........ and human fluency and it develops and works on the presence of a wide imagination and mental ability to think and analyze

    3- I think that the explanation tool shows the opinion of journalists
    Because telling journalists their secrets can reap the benefits for him and his community
    And perhaps he may explain and clarify what he wants for the state in some places in the law and the forms for settling legal secrets such as mediation
    Where if the secret is sensitive, the journalist can discuss it and explain it to the state to be in the view, where the state presents this discussion without identifying the name of the journalist himself

    1. In my opinion, the “explanations” tell me the most about the news story. It’s because from the explanations I can get a clear perception about what’s going on and about the ‘pandora papers’. The offshore transactions, how these transactions might seem legal but are actually unfair in most cases, especially when the clients tend to hold a public façade and hide such details that the general public needs to know- I could comprehend all these from the explanations.
    2. I think the “cartoon” makes me more interested in the issue. This is because it’s a visual representation of the basic idea about offshore transactions and money laundering, done in a really creative and amusing way i.e. through cartoons. Besides, it doesn’t need any specific language to make everyone understand what’s going on. At the first sight of the cartoon picture, I could understand that the offshore transactions are being done by the rich to avoid paying high taxes, while the ordinary people just watch as they are silenced by the benefits the rich people reap.
    3. Next, I believe the “perspectives” show the journalists’ own opinions. The journalists can emphasize their point of view regarding a topic that might uncover something new to the whole world. Everyone has their own perspectives regarding something, and every perspective is like a separate window in a room that unveils new scenery through it. Just like that, a journalist can share his own ways of imagining things that can also open the eyes of many in a comprehensible way.

    In my opinion, the tool cartoon tells the most about the news story that is offshore transactions. Cartoons are visual images drawn to express opinions about people, events, and policies. They make use of satire and parody to communicate ideas and evoke emotional responses from readers. An exhibit from the Library of Congress noted how political or editorial cartoons are “no laughing matter.” They are “pictures with a point.” Washington Post cartoonist Ann Telnaes stated: “The job of the editorial cartoonist is to expose the hypocrisies and abuses of power by politicians and powerful institutions in our society.” Here in this cartoon, I can see some individuals imprisoned on an island in this cartoon, which portrays the impoverished. Following that, the villagers notice a ship approaching them, which represents the poor people's longing for help from the wealthy. The ship then approaches them and drops a significant sum of money, indicating that large enterprises and corporations set up shop in underdeveloped countries for their own benefit.
    "Perspective" is the tool that was most interesting to me in this regard. Here in the perspective section it is written that “The people that could end the secrecy offshore… are the ones that are benefited from it,” which has been quoted by Mr. Gerard Ryle of ICIJ. The confidential documents reveal the offshore activities of Jordan's King Abdullah II, Ukraine's, Kenya's, and Ecuador's presidents, the Czech Republic's prime minister, and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The documents also reveal the financial dealings of Russian President Vladimir Putin's "unofficial minister of publicity" and over 130 billionaires from Russia, the United States, Turkey, and other countries. Many of the power people who could help put a stop to the offshore system instead benefit from it, stashing assets in secret companies and trusts while their governments do nothing to restrict a global flow of illicit money that enriches criminals, according to the leaked information.
    The tool "Explanation," in my opinion, best demonstrates the journalist's own opinion. In here the journalist has given the explanations on the offshore transactions – politicians and rich people get a scope to avoid paying taxes in his opinion. He has given this explanation through immense researches done by him analyzing the stats here. So this “Explanation” shows or demonstrates journalist’s own opinion here.
    Other than the above 4 tools, journalists can use photographs of an event to objectively deliver the news while also being used to affect how viewers see persons and events. This tool is also very much effective in terms of sharing a news story successfully among the audience along with the given 4 tools.

    I think the "cartoon" tells the news story about offshore taxation and "pandora papers". I can see some children trapped on the island and then they noticed a ship coming towards them to look after the poor people's desired help from the wealthy people. Offshore tax havens are the jurisdictions of choice for building corporate structures to protect assets from creditors and hide the identity of ultimate beneficiaries. This "Cartoon" should be of interest to any professional advisor interested in understanding the nuts and bolts of setting up an offshore corporate structure. The most widely created offshore tax haven company is an international business company. It is a company that can be set up in a jurisdiction with the business of the company being operated outside of the jurisdiction. These companies have a prohibition on economic activity in the offshore tax haven itself. This means that the international business company is prohibited from trading in the jurisdiction despite it being the company’s jurisdiction of incorporation.
    If I think from another perspective then the cartoon tells me about the wonderful artwork of Kevin KAL Kallaugher. Cartoons are of interest to all people, even there are adults who watch cartoon movies because they introduce us to the components of the outside world and knowledge of nature, such as cartoon movies that show information about outer space. I think Cartoons express the mind of people secretly. Children, young and adults may be affected by it because it shows a different way to develop themself.

    Peace

    The thing that fascinates me the most in history is the shallow look some people will see when they see the news that a king bought real estate in the United States and Britain. If we think logically, we will see what the King is doing, it is wrong. Arab countries, in general, are vulnerable to war and colonization at all times, so the king must find a hiding place for him and his family, in case of a coup and revolution, this threatens the life of the king, and if anything happens to the king, the economic and political situation will worsen and his country will be vulnerable to colonialism!!! Furthermore, this money is the king's money and not the government's money. furthermore, the king cannot buy a building or a palace as a hiding place, he is a king who must have power and privilege, the king must have a good and strong reputation so that he does not appear as a weak king. If the king leaves and his reputation is lost, the country will go with him, "There is no strong country with a weak king" .

    In my opinion the explanation is the most effective tool and it is telling the most about the news story. Now let us think about it at first not everybody is well aware of different terms like offshore taxation ,money laundering etc. Now one can easily understand a thing when you explain it to him or her. After that you can show him different pictures or cartoons which is also mentioned above to make it very clear.


    now the most interesting tool to me was the perspective of the journalists. Because it tells you the reality about the current global condition. When you see a country or world leader laundering money while he was the who was supposed to stop these kind of activities it completely destroys the normal mentality of general people and creates a negative impact on the countries economy and in other places .not only the politicians its true for all the rich and celebrities .

    Many people may take it in a negative way that the journalists are exposing different confidential documents about different individuals .but I think they are just doing there job and we all know truth always hurts. But sometimes we can see partiality (doing it intentionally to create a abnormal situation) on these kind of sensitive and important issues which is definitely wrong and it should not be .


    Now is there any other way to publish this kind of info to the public ?.the answer is yes .They can do the research by collaboration of the government but here comes comes another interesting fact if the journalists contact the government first to do such research there is no guarantee the gov will allow them to do so because they could be the one who is involved in such illegal activities.so in one way I don't see any other way to do something like this without secrecy .because to reveal something secret ,secrecy is the most effective way.

    Firstly, I think the animation tells me most with regards to the information on "Pandora Papers". In the animation, I can see certain individuals caught in an island which addresses the needy individuals. Up next, individuals sees a boat coming towards them which takes after the needy individuals' potential for help from the rich individuals. Then, at that point, the boat comes to them and drops a heap of cash which lets us know that huge businesses and goliath organizations build up their base in the helpless nations for the good of their own. More or less, the animation tells me, "The destitute individuals anticipate that the rich people should help. In any case, the rich individuals simply utilizes the destitute individuals for their own advantage by building up seaward organizations in their nation and that assists them with keeping away from a gigantic measure of expenses."


    Secondly, The instrument which makes me most intrigued is "Viewpoints". It says that individuals who are equipped for uncovering the privileged insights of the seaward organizations are the ones who are being profited from it. It gives me a foggy thought regarding what seaward organizations are, what the advantages are, what insider facts they are stowing away, how the exposers are being benefitted by concealing those privileged insights. It makes me generally intrigued and furthermore inquisitive to find out about some specific terms like 'Keeping away from charges', 'Pandora Papers', 'Seaward organizations' and so forth Along these lines, as I would like to think, this apparatus is the most fascinating to me contrasted with the other three devices given here.



    Thirdly, I think the "Points of view" instrument shows the columnists' own viewpoint. It says that the individuals who can end the insider facts are receiving rewards. I think there are numerous nations and various foundations who keep up with these sorts of monetary mysteries might have some different reasons. How about we accept an agricultural nation which is frantic to utilize its jobless populace gets a proposal of giving colossal work in return of least duty paying and it has no other choice except for to allow them for the advancement of its residents. Aside from this unique situation, the writers are saying that they are simply doing as such for their benefits while the nation must choose between limited options as opposed to that. So one might say that these are the columnists' own viewpoints.

    1.I think explanation tells the most about the news story. Through explanation the ins and outs of the Pandora paper incident can be made crystal clear to everyone. In pen and paper hiding money in other countries may seem legal but there’s an extent to everything. It becomes unfair when it’s being done by powerful people to avoid paying taxes which eventually takes us to the place of snatching away the rights of poor people. So through proper explanation we can understand the situation perfectly.
    2. Cartoon makes me most interested about the story. Through cartoon the message can be directed in an artistic way. And people of all age have an inherent attraction to things done in a creative way. Besides, while understanding any situation image works better than words. The above cartoon easily depicted the story of the rich exploiting the law for their personal benefits in just 5 pages whereas going through huge documents would’ve been boring.
    3. I think perspectives convey the journalist’s personal opinion more. Because different people have different perspectives. To one journalist the situation may seem as the rich breaking the law for personal benefits and causing trouble for the poor while to another it might seem as them utilizing their rights. So through perspectives we can come to understand the journalist’s personal opinion
    The journalists are always curious. So out of curiosity they always run after the news. This curiosity can open the eyes of the millions. So the experienced journalists should make an international journalism community where the experienced and established journalists can motivate the young and upcoming stake holders so that they always remain fearless in bringing out all the ins and outs from any corners of the world and expose the truth among the mass populace despite having life risks. We hope that one day this community will be on the verge of actual truth and facts when people will be in real world full of actual news.

    Although the numbers are clear and make it simple to understand, it doesn't quite cath your eye as it is very wordy and awkward to find interesting unless statistics intrigue you. The cartoon is simple, easy to understand, and all ages can make sense of it. I get the clearest message from the cartoon, I suppose some people enjoy reading statistics and numbers, some through explanations and it is often useful to see multiple perspectives therefore it can depend on the person and how they take in information. The cartoon is in quite an old-fashioned style and very original which can be quite appealing sometimes depending on the format.

    We have known that the press seeks to enhance the people’s right to know and to enable them to determine the position that suits them among the trends and coverage of the newspaper, but they must be careful not to grave violations that may harm individuals and society
    It is necessary for this press to have standards and ethics that journalists and their institutions multiply with care, respect and application at the individual and collective level so that the journalist begins planning and producing media content and making the decision to publish it. Cultural and established customs
    For societies and nations, it has imposed a notable and even tangible value framework during the foreseeable historical stages so that journalistic work develops around the world
    We find these attempts to establish organized and written codes of honor that date back more than two hundred years

    The free press is the only one that can report the news without hesitation or fear, but now the press has become one of the most corrupt people in society, because of the rich people, the leaders and the presidents who threaten them with dismissal and not to give money (salary), so the press has not become very meaningful In our society, but when those who threaten the press are punished, the press will take the liberty.
    The press also now competes to get the best theory that can spread to the world so that they can become famous, but the best theory does not come without effort. From all news and announcing it without fear and freedom until all points of view are known and used in solving problems and so on.

    The journalistic story is an unconventional creative type of light in the world of journalism, during which the journalist harnesses his skills and personalities that enable him to transfer the reader to the scene of the event by presenting a lively picture of the event characterized by vitality and dynamism, and reviving the human nature of the issues at hand, or what is called “humanity”. .

    - It is not limited to one field and can be used in many different fields, and this is what prompted many newspapers, magazines and news agencies, to employ them in the service of humanitarian issues in society. They dealt with unemployment, wars, disasters, economic aspects, poverty, health and other important aspects of life as well as issues Positivity and stories of challenge and success, also out of competition with the decline of the paper press in light of the spread of media journalism and social media. Transfer news....

    Considering practically, a well-explained report from a journalist can tell the most about any story. But at the same time, to efficiently attract the viewers to any topic, a journalist can make cartoons that greatly simplify an issue that is easily comprehensible to the viewers too.
    Nevertheless, my personal opinion in this regard is that logical explanations and accurate representation of data can make any news story or report very much reliable and trustworthy. While not many general people are very interested in detailed reports, the mass of dedicated knowledge seekers consider reading stories from trustworthy sources. Thus I believe that explanations are very effective in case of sharing news stories by the journalists.

    There are those who take the longest way and join the media department at the university, to graduate after four years and discover that they have spent their lives learning information and axioms..not fat or sing!
    Journalism is an art in which education and indoctrination do not work.. an art that only comes by surprise. Therefore, I am here to draw your attention to these matters. You have to move directly to the nearest paper and pen and write anything that ranges in your imagination, whether it is a construction thought.. Or a comment on a scene you watched on TV or a reaction to a passing situation. Write anything you think is a recording and documentation of your beginning, and present it to those around you without shame.
    - Try to follow up daily as much media as possible (magazines, newspapers, news and documentaries, radio programs) and focus on the diversity of its fields and media affiliations.
    - Go with these follow-ups in every direction, talk, discuss, question and inquire about everything that occupies your mind and everything you see that provokes or draws your attention! Beware saying to yourself, “It is none of my business.” Everything that is going on around you is your business, so break into it without asking permission!
    - No university degrees, no kinship with a journalist, or anything that would help you master the art of journalism with skill except experimentation... So start writing at the first opportunity!

    These are some of the standards that an honest journalist must adhere to: First, journalists must be honest. It is not acceptable to report information known to be false, or to report facts in a misleading manner to give a false impression;

    Second, independence and objectivity: Journalists should avoid topics in which they have a financial or personal interest that would provide them with a particular interest in the topic, as such interest may lead to bias in their reporting, or give the impression of such bias. In cases where a journalist may have a particular financial or personal interest, the interest must be disclosed;

    Third, fairness: Journalists must present the facts with impartiality and impartiality, and present points of view and other aspects of the story where they exist. It is not acceptable to distort the facts;

    Fourth, diligence: the journalist must collect and present the relevant facts to provide a good understanding of the subject reported;

    Fifthly, accountability: the journalist must be accountable for his work, and be prepared to accept criticism and consequences. [13

    In my opinion, cartoons are the best of all
    For example, you have a person who cannot read, this means that he will not understand the existing words or he will not be able to read them. If there are images and indications, he will understand what is required. Of course, it will not be as much as his understanding of reading, but something is better than something you will tell me in our time, you will not find people who cannot read?
    Yes, and this is only for young people. As for the elderly who do not have the opportunity to learn and want to read news, newspapers or magazines, when they see the pictures, you will explain to them a summary of what is written in the newspaper, and they also have the right to know
    Did you also know about other useful pictures, for example, that we play group games in which pictures and scenes are a way to understand something, this means that they are the focus of the human’s focus and to operate his mind and operate vocabulary and deliver the benefit of this with this, in the end everything has its benefit

    ° 1- I think that the most effective tool for conveying news is the cartoon because it aims to deliver a message to the target audience, regardless of their age group.

    The more successful the animator's way of getting the message across, the more successful animators such as Tom and Jerry, who won Oscars that top actors couldn't get.
    ° 2- I also think that the interesting tool is the numbers tool, because it expands the information in the explanation, and this makes the radio viewers enjoy the information, and it is also possible that people may not know or forget some information. ° 3- I think the most useful tool for expressing my journalistic opinion is the perspectives ,as they are a theory found in some academic disciplines that are used to analyze self-discourses. This working group suggests that power is rooted in individuals' knowledge (their views), and the influence that power wields.

    A journalist is a person who practices the profession of journalism, either spoken or written, and the job of a journalist is to collect and disseminate information about current events. Some of them specialize in writing about economics, political analysis, science, medicine or astronomy, and some of them take risks and report news from events and expose themselves to dangers in the fields of fighting and revolutions. The journalist has formed his society and opened wide windows for him in the areas of free thinking, freedom, equality, and salvation from the restrictions of factional, clan and narrow thinking. Mary: The more the journalist develops and raises his thinking and his responsibility to his society, the more his audience and readers benefit from his work, and with him peoples develop, as he has become interested in analysis and criticism, which are among the basic necessities of the journalist. Security and privacy, search for specialized sites and databases, and stay up-to-date and create your own archive of media summaries, press conferences, press releases, briefing groups, websites, new media and press tours And media relations must be dealt with through a special department for media relations or through a specialized media official if: and media relations must be dealt with through a special department for media relations or through a specialized media official if this is not possible, and it is preferable that he has experience in dealing with the media. Institutions have their own requirements according to their needs, and this is reflected in the dispersion of the digital journalist, as it is difficult for him to know which of the qualifications he should develop.

    1_ I think. There is another way to present the news story, which is the (inverted pyramid) method, which is considered one of the most prevalent types of journalistic templates, especially in the national press, especially in news agencies and news, which is based on writing important events and ideas at the beginning and gradation in terms of importance to the end of the news story in order Next (very important - important - normal importance - not important) because this helps the viewer listen to the news properly
    2_ This makes you more interested, because this enables the reader to determine the importance of the news to him and the speed of the news, and also makes it easier for the writer to arrange the units within it quickly, and also helps from an editorial point of view in shortening the opinion of part of the unimportant details that come at the end of the news story, as the space allocated to the news It is a problem for newspapers
    The private opinion of journalists appears because he can arrange the importance of the news from the most important to the least quickly and also the journalist explains his point of view at the end of each topic

    1_ I think that the important tool in clarifying the news is the perspectives because they confirm the correctness of the statements and clarify and highlight the information clearly and prove the cause of the problem

    2 - I think that the most enjoyable tool I enjoy is the cartoon because of its effect on raising children and showing journalists' own opinions, and helps to develop imagination, intelligence, reading and stimulate creativity. And also attract the attention of the elderly how? Because old people want to laugh, relive and relax.

    3- I think that the tool that expresses the opinion is the point of view
    From the critics' point of view... the 5 best films in history

    "If all serious lyricists, composers, painters, and sculptors were legally forced to cease their activities, a relatively small segment of the general public would realize what had happened and a smaller segment would feel sorry for it. If the same were to happen to films, the social consequences would be catastrophic." (1)



    This is how art historian Erwin Panofsky wrote in 1934 about the seventh art. Cinema was still in its early decades then, and today, more than eighty years after what Panofsky said, we can imagine the effect that Panofsky described if that art were to end for whatever reason and multiplied dozens of times. The cinema has infiltrated and shaped our collective consciousness, and while we may find someone who has never read a novel or seen a painting, it is almost impossible to find someone who has not seen a movie in their life. Thus, we can easily classify cinema as the most popular art among the broad masses. Its immense popularity exposed it to the contempt of elite intellectuals for a long time, before it was finally able to establish itself as an art that stands on an equal footing with other arts and possesses the same capacity to address deep intellectual and social issues in an aesthetic form.



    A group of critics who began to explain and analyze films have contributed to raising the status of cinema in the eyes of intellectuals, providing the public with deep readings of what may pass unnoticed by the non-specialist. One of the most prestigious publications that contributed to this was the magazine "Sight and Sound" launched by the "British Film Foundation" (BFI) in 1933. From 1952 until now, the magazine has held a regular poll every ten years asking the Critics choose the 100 best films of all time. This poll is considered the most important and credible among the many similar polls, according to the testimony of the great critic Roger Ebert. The magazine held its last poll in 2012, and below, we'll look at the top five films that critics voted best of all time. (2)

    In other ways, drama is a type of film that is based on the deep development of real-life characters that deal with touching themes.[1][2] Dramatic films are usually about racism, drug addiction, religious fanaticism, poverty, violence against women and the corruption of society with events that put the character in conflict with themselves. Drama is the broadest genre of film and includes sub-genres such as romance drama, sports drama, and crime film. In dramatic films, personal or characters are in conflict at a critical moment in their lives and sometimes the events revolve around their family like ordinary people (film).

    ☆ 1- I think that the most interesting tool is the cartoon tool, because through it the viewer is eager to know what happened before this story, during this story and after this story. Find out what happened in this story
    ☆ 2- I think that the most used tool for conveying news well is explanation and clarification. The journalist is a talent and a talent that exists in many, many people, and needs to be researched and refined through accumulated research.
    ☆ 3- I think the tool that expresses my journalistic opinion is perspectives . Of course, every journalist has a point of view. This does not mean that the curriculum, speech or publications are different. It's just views
    •◇•Among the other tools that the journalist uses to deliver information are 《educational trips》: -
    Educational trips are one of the most powerful educational means that have an impact on the lives of the viewers, as they move them from the atmosphere of the abstract symbolic style to witnessing the facts as they are, strengthening the process of perception in them, and transmitting its elements to them in a way that is unable to speak and explain. The trips also change the school atmosphere in terms of departure and the fun that dominate its atmosphere, and new things that the viewer encounters on the trip, such as self-reliance and helping other viewers, which develops his personality and creates in him a sense of responsibility.

    In my point of view, The cartoon makes me more aware about the PANDORA PAPERS case.

    The Cartoon here reflects several significant points at the same time which are
    - The sufferings of general people due to offshore taxation
    - The privatization of the rich people in tax shelter
    - impacts of offshore taxation.
    Cartoons are the most ancient form of communication which can convey the highest amount of information at the same time. That's why I choose cartoon as it gives me the highest amount of contextual knowledge and idea about the offshore tax shelter or PANDORA PAPERS.

    2. Later on, the NUMBERS MAKES ME MORE INTERESTED than any other tools. Because it shows how big and huge the weight of the PANDORA PAPER CASE is and how much labyrinths may appear to solve it. It also gives me an idea of how massive & important it is to solve the offshore taxation or PANDORA PAPER CASE.

    3. And at last, I think the EXPLANATION PART Shows the journalists’ own opinions. BECAUSE, the explanation includes the definition & contexts of the PANDORA PAPER issue. This explanation is the mixture of thoughts,. information & knowledge gathered by the journalists & presented in their own words.

    1. I think that cartoon is the best tool that journalists will provide because it shows the news of the world and others in the form of cartoon films that even a children or a teenager can know like an adult.

    2. Cartoons are of great interest to all the people, even there are adults who watch cartoon movies because they introduce us with things and characters the outside world and knowledge of nature, such as cartoon movies that talk about animals in the forests, and movies that show information about outer space, this helps everyone enlarge their knowledge and I support this.
    3. In my opinion, the cartoon shows the private opinions of journalists more, because through the cartoons the feelings and values ​​​​of the journalists are directly expressed which also affect the children and the adults. Through it, they can persevere in improving the environment, societies and others through their good deeds and efforts.

    Thank you .

    Journalists face many challenges in newsrooms regarding the issue of verifying the authenticity of media content published on news sites, or circulated by users through social networking sites. More professionally and efficiently.

    Facebook has noticed the seriousness of rumors and false news, and has launched a new feature related to news and press materials that are shared, so that the user can identify the friends who share rumors and false news.

    The new feature is to display a circular mark bearing an exclamation mark (!) with each news or article to know the severity of rumors and questions.

    I think that journalists can share a news story through "SIGN LANGUAGE" which will allow the people with hearing disability to know about the news throughout the world.

    We are living in the same society, sharing the same rights for knowing about the incidents happening throughout the world. In 21st century where information is termed as "ASSET",we all are trying our best to enrich ourselves with this asset for adapting with this technologically developed and advanced world. But it is really a matter of sorrow that while thinking of our own betterment, own benefits; we are forgetting to advance together with everybody around us. When a group of people watching the news are getting the information; they are increasing their knowledge, making radical changes throughout the world, then why to keep one group aloof from this scope just because of a minor disability ? In fact, it's not the disability that is confining their talents or detaching them from the rest of the world. Rather it's us who are doing so. Just like others, they also hold the ability to make a huge change in the world, to contribute to world's development. The only thing they lack is "A SCOPE".

    And I think that the "SIGN LANGUAGE" can bring them that scope by giving them access to the asset, enabling them to increase their knowledge and contribute to the world's development by sharing their ideas and works.

    Two skills that every journalist must be equipped with, and the first of these two skills is “passion”, which makes the journalist interested in excellence in the field, and the importance of passion is that it will make a person well aware of the skills required to succeed in his work, and what is available to him to develop, and what is not The second skill is the ability to write all different forms of journalism, whether they are human stories, reports, opinion articles, investigations, investigative journalism, and other forms, and it is also important for every journalist to be convinced that there is no such thing as “I am good at journalism.” Sports only, or investigative writing only.” A journalist must be comprehensive and able to write in all branches of journalism, even if he decides to specialize in a particular field after that.

    Well, if true facts are presented with appropriate graphical or comical representation, then it becomes helpful for people to grab the actual matter. But sadly, that's not the case always. Nowadays journalists are publishing clickbaits or fake news rapidly, which is grabbing the attention of people and general people are easily getting influenced through these. This problem has again increased with the initiation of so many online news portals, where 90% of them are totally fake. So, my opinion is that news should be presented more vividly through graphical and comical description, but nonetheless we should keep in mind that news must not be exaggerated or rumored.

    For me, the cartoon is the most important tool that a journalist should use, and it is considered one of the most influential methods in the educational process, especially for children, because it has a very important factor, which is to attract attention. Children usually want to enjoy every work they do, and the purpose of teachers in this The stage is to attract children as much as possible during the educational process. Animations have the effect of magic in a task like this. With cheerful colors, cartoonish sounds, funny characters, and interesting stories, children are drawn to watching animations.
    On the other hand, animation has some major benefits to help children, in various educational and life fields:
    • Understand scientific theories easily:
    A lot of scientific information can be communicated through cartoons, which is usually difficult to explain and communicate theoretically, even for adults sometimes
    . However, through colorful pictures, simple phrases, and practical experiments, the cartoon can overcome the obstacle of the difficulty of the scientific method.

    I want to talk about something, I noticed that many suggested that the best way to talk about pandora leaves is drawings, but not everyone has a wide imagination that can understand these drawings and understand the basic story,It is indeed a great way to deliver news, but not for everyone, but for a certain group. The journalist cannot express his opinion freely about it. He must take into account many things, such as: how to draw characters so that he is not accused of bullying,He also has to take into account the time, since he will publish the news as drawings, and he will need time to draw!! And another possibility is that if he submits the news story to be drawn by an artist, the artist may not draw his intention correctly,and this is how people will understand the story in another way, even if he draws it himself, it will take time, and then there will be new issues and things that occupy the world, and then how will he attract them?! For example: We are already facing climate change, but because there is a common global issue that is the Corona virus, we cannot attract the world's attention to our important global environmental issue,There is also another problem, which is publishing the graphics. If the journalist publishes them as a magazine in the market, it may attract some, but not everyone, and thus the journalist will lose financially,also, if he is going to publish it through a video, he must publish it on a well-known news channel, but what if this channel is rejected because this method of spreading news will not gain everyone's attention......
    But in my opinion, when the journalist speaks directly about the topic and supports the topic with different theories from the staff, Or he can support the topic with numbers and evidence, he will gain the confidence of the public and they will become more interested in the matter because it concerns their interest as a people, or he can support the topic with clarifications where it is easier to understand the idea for people

    Every group made up of individuals, regardless of its specialization and field of activity, needs a person to assume the role of leadership, and there is disagreement about this role, but it is certain that leadership does not mean issuing orders and serving self-interest, but rather it is developing a strategy that leads the entire team towards its goals, and to have Positive influence on those around him, and leads them to success.

    Arturo Torres says - in a report published by the Spanish magazine "Pascologia e Minti" - that teamwork is one of the essential aspects, whether in institutions and companies or in other informal settings, and requires good coordination, supervision, motivation and division of roles, and here the value of the leader emerges.

    Since the press seeks to promote the public’s right to know, and to enable it to determine the position that suits it among the angles and trends of press coverage, while being careful not to cause serious violations that may affect individuals, society or sources, it is not surprising that it arises from the two processes of communication and achieving the goal and influence. These two are an urgent need to establish ethical principles and standards that journalists and their institutions pledge to care for, respect and apply at the individual and collective level, starting with the planning and production of media content, and the decision to publish it, in a way that contributes to enhancing trust between the public and the press, and what achieves the public interest. These principles and ethical standards derive from Religious and cultural values ​​and the established norms of societies and nations, which continued to impose a noticeable and even tangible value framework during the foreseeable historical stages of the development of journalistic work around the world

It may give many ideas and may be of interest to others.

    1_I think from my point of view that explanations are what tell me more about the news story. People usually are not convinced or satisfied just by knowing what happened? What does it mean what happened? What are the expected results and effects of what happens. This information may not be obtained by the journalist quickly, but when the story is Important and a great journalistic scoop, the journalist expands and deepens the research and thus moves to the interpretation of the event, but this process may be fraught with risks, so the journalist must be careful, but the benefits achieved by the news coverage explaining the events greatly outweigh this risk.
    Explanation is clearly tell us about all the questions raised and thus make us more fully aware of the news story. For example, my reading of the above explanation made me more aware that hiding money, even if it is legal, may get the owner in trouble and expresses the immorality of the work he did, which may cause economic problems and evasion of payment Taxes cause problems for society and for other people.
    2-In general, we resort to cartoons sometimes, or what are called caricatures, so that they can summarize an entire news story in a way that is more attractive to those who cannot read or children, for example, children who do not understand complex issues a lot. These animations simplify us The matter is greatly and therefore we can understand the event or the news story. The use of graphics and what is in them are colors and movement that attracts everyone, whether young or old. For example, here in the picture, I was easily able to find out what the journalist wants to communicate easily without using words, even here he tells us how taxes, banking services and companies work Foreign affairs and how the activities of the wealthy and those connected to politics affect the people in general and the poor in particular.
    3-Everyone has the freedom of opinion and the private field in which he is creative, so I think that the journalist can be more creative and distinguished by using animations that can reflect the journalist’s own opinion as he can express what is inside and his opinion by drawing so that he communicates his opinion to all segments of society and if he wants to enhance the values ​​of It also uses animations so that it is more attractive to readers and easy to understand.
    Challenge: Visual and graphic designs that help reduce and intensify what the journalist wants to say. It also adds more grace and attractiveness to the content.

      Yes, and explanations are important to explain the event. If the event is misunderstood, it may cause problems and not understand the news. People must be told clearly so that they can deal with the event and the news.
      Yes, and this responsibility falls on the journalist in terms of caution, as he is the savior, the interpreter, the informant, and the suggester of this event.

    There isn't a single person on this earth living who didn't watch cartoons or animation in his childhood days. Cartoons depict the lifestyle of a particular person and they display the social, political and economic condition of a community or a nation. Many a times it becomes difficult for the common people to understand an issue or a context on the basis of formal writing or bookish presentation; and in that case the drawings of the imaginary or the real objects in the cartoons come forward to express what's going on. In my eyes, cartoons have the highest capabilities to present any news or information before us as we strongly believe in the proverb: "Example is better than precept". In the above cartoons, it is easily understandable that offshore transactions can be used in both grounds, which is; towards the light side or towards the darker side. The first diagram poses that some survivors in a remote island in the middle of the sea are begging for help to find a way out, and a ship came through the waters sliding to save them at a glance. This scenario is actually being used as a reflection of the same image that how much offshore transaction is important when a nation is in a dangerous or an emergency state. For an instance, when a soldier is in a dying condition in the battlefield, then instead of just sitting in grief and bursting into tears, it's a lot more sensible to contact an offshore agent and get the surgery or quick treatment as required. In this way, a valuable life can be saved and thus a thousand lives AKA a emerging generation can be saved. On the contrary, the second diagram poses the same scenario in a different angle, which is, the rich and the prominent men take advantage of such an opportunity to build mountains of gold and treasury and keeping their pockets full to their appetite. Using this offshore transaction as a trumpcard, this noble term is gradually losing it's calm and started to take it's identity as 'money laundering'.

    From my point of view and observation, I would like to prefer "Headlines" as the inception of any happening. News are made of many elements and headlines are the primary eye-catching tools to attract someone's intention. The Pandora Papers is made of much leaked information as stated earlier, and these are quite useful on such terms. Their stats regarding the offshore transaction off the rich has this millions of documents flying over, and helping this issue to become an open secret. I personally caught the attention of The Pandora Papers through this headline texted "CARTOONS", and attaching those visuals of light and dark offshore transactions. If the headlines are not that much successful in bringing the readers' eyes to it's own separate column, then it's a sad truth that journalist's efforts won't be fruitful. Along with The Pandora Papers, the other headlines of COP26 also have been on the bull's eye for receiving handful responses.

    In reality, any of the tools have the level to show a journalist's true opinion and thought of mind. There goes a saying: "Example is better than precept". So, in implementing this proverb, cartoon comes into action as it's visuals show a true description and a gives a better outlook compared to the writings in the article section. In our country, Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) organizes a fest annually that includes paintings and drawings of corruption in all levels, which are all displayed by children. This is a legendary step in fighting against corruption and misrule. In another pretext, colorful and attractive columns of newspapers and journals display what's really going on in a reporter's mind. There should be a separate column for the honest readings of the journalists and their feelings should be considered. Above all, a journalist should be respected for his toil in bringing the truth in front of people and so all his columns are appreciated.

    I think this is a perfect explanation of today's world.

    Main headline of this story is that today's most of the rich people are just like inhuman, they are just rushing behind money forgetting the brotherhood among the people. Most of the people think that money is everything for them but they don't think about the brother like relation among the people.

    From the journalist I have learned that the future generation is going towards the opposite direction where as they had to go to the another. And I think this cartoons is the best way to give direction to the future generation. first of all, it is very easy to understand to people of any languages races and casts. Secondly, it is very attractive and anyone will be attracted by this kind of cartoons. So I think this is the best way to explain about today's world.

    1. I think explanations tell us the most about any news. Let's see about Pandora Papers. We can see the numbers and perspectives or cartoons which say us data or reviews. But if we don't know what that means and what the data are describing, it's useless. Again, if we don't know about the incident clearly, the data and perspectives may even mislead us, For which I think explanations are the best options. Explanations can also make someone fully acknowledge the situation and make someone aware of the situation fully.


    2. Something interesting should be something we can visualize I think. There are many people who skip writings or perspectives and headlines just because it's long. But when they see something and it catches their attention, they will be interested to know about it. Also, Cartoons in my opinion can express long things in short as we can visualize them.


    3. I think perspectives shows journalist's own opinion. We know perspective is what anyone understands about something and it is what anyone thinks about any problem or their view on this problem. So, if anyone says their perspective about anything it is only their opinion on this subject. Let's talk about this line, ' The people that could end the secrecy offshore.....are the ones that are benefitting from it'. In this line, the journalist in one line said how is the offshore situation and what is the root problem in it. So, I would like to say 'Perspectives' shows journalists' own opinions.

    Challenge: Reality shows can be a good medium or videos and documentaries on it. We know the world is digitalizing. People spend most of their time on screens. So, I think if the journalists spread the Pandora Papers on video sharing sites and TV channels, more people will know about this and will be aware of this and the journalists will be successful in expressing their full views and opinions on the Pandora Papers.

    I think a journalist should deeply reports deeply investigating topic of interest,such as serious crime political corruption,or corporate wrong doing though an investigate journalist may spends months or years researching and preparing a report. they should practice on how the politicians takes citizens money money from one countries to another and also they should carefully research on how the politicians indulge citizens money.

    The first question: The method of explanation is the one that tells about the news story because the explanation of the news conveys the true and realistic picture and there is no confusion or ambiguity in the press news
    The solution to the second question: The way that makes me care about the press news is to use the explanation of the news in an easy, smooth and real way and to arouse the public’s interest, add suspense and attract attention
    Solution to the third question: Views are the ones that show the journalist’s private view because he gives his opinion on the subject personally and can be used to contribute to presenting a new addition to an issue and to contribute to the public’s understanding of issues and encourage healthy discussion and this enhances the public’s understanding and openness of their minds to new points of view

    I think that the thing that helps me the most is the description, this is because the comic does help, but I didn't understand it for a bit. But with the description it was plain and simple, no extra thinking needed. The comic did provide a nice amount of entertaiment and laughs but I didn't really get it from the start. I also really liked the numbers as it truly put the gianormous thing this was into context. 6 million is alot and it makes you realise this is not some small thing, it also makes you think about each catagory and what could be happening with it, the percespective also is pretty nice as it allows you to think more about what could be happening. It makes you think from a different "percespective" and view of what it could be.

    For me, the cartoons were the greatest. This is because, it gives me more idea of what is happening and with numbers and words, children are not the best dealing with them. It also shows what other people do, and how it affects others. I realised that it can affect others, both good and bad.
    I think good because the poorer people can earn money, letting them finally have a home.
    Secondly, I think that it is bad as oters could find the money, snich and then put the origanal peron in jail.

    1. the explanation helps me understand the most as I found it simple, widely explanatory and more efficient than the numbers or comic strip.
    2. the thing that got me most interested was the numbers as they were shocking and made me wonder how many people were using offshore accounts;it seemed to be loads and encouraged me to do a bit of research.
    3. I think the comic strip shows the journalist's opinion because they have clearly shown that the rich are the ones that do it, and only them. Also, it showed that the people they put their money with had no choice as they needed what the people storing the money offered in return.

    I would say the best way for explain this crisis is using cartoons as it encourages young individuals to started reading the news more often. However the new story is another great way of making the people aware of this situation because the news gives us facts about what is happening around the world and it alerts us quickly.

    In my personal opinion, the cartoon image explained Pandora paper the best for not only was it child friendly, it got me thinking about what it might represent the first time I saw it. It really grabbed my attention which made me want to read on. It shows you that people in need of the money are overlooked by the people who want the money. It made me more aware of this situation.

    I also believe that it represents the journalists opinion most for it shows a rich person dumping money on an island that has a family stranded on it. They did not even stop to help which represents that they do not care about the people in need.

    I find the 'number section' the most important. I strongly think so because the number just tells you how many things are kept private. Or in other words, it is kept secret. In addition, it is very important for these private things to be revealed. I know this because for example: If a rich person hides the money then they don't have to pay taxes which could harm NHS, road cleaning and much much more.

    It made me understand so much more about what was really happening . I now know how politics are getting other people to help them to dig there money and then pay other people and don't have to pay tax as people think they are poor . This has mind blown me . However ,by reading the text I have understood how it is not illegal and when you tell secrets that are mean they always come to light .

    1- In my opinion, what tells me the most about the news story is (the explanation), as it provides new information and data about an event or time, and it highlights certain angles and internals about this event, and provides the historical and documentary background to the event, which is what attracts me to investigate and verify the authenticity of the news. The explanation must be complete and detailed and not just repetition.
    2- The cartoon is what makes me more interested, because what a picture can say is what a writer cannot say in a word, according to the Russian writer (Yvan Turgenev in the novel (Fathers and Sons), as the cartoon carries a meaningful message just like the linguistic text, so the recipient can To do a deep analysis of the image in order to extract the meaning or the message to be conveyed, and because of the importance of the image, many journalistic applications associated with it appeared, so what is known as (visual journalism) appeared or (photojournalism) and photojournalism)
    3- Perspectives show journalists' private opinions, journalists show their personal opinions Through informative background formats, in most cases, the news story, especially those presented by international news agencies, monitors the impact of the event, incident, incident or information that the story deals with in the general context of events. From the point of view that the journalist wants to show, highlight and convince the recipient of it, they may not practice this role objectively from the point of view of some of them. Journalists re-broadcast the information more than once with new details and tighter formulations.

    Challenge: There are other ways journalists can participate in a news story, including:
    1- The title: It is the main entrance to the story and it must be designed and it must contain the excitement that draws the attention of the recipient.
    2- The introduction is of great importance because it captivates the reader. If the reader is drawn to the introduction, he will continue reading the topic until the end.
    3- Consistency: What is meant by it is coordinating the interrelationship between the paragraphs that make up the topic through the use of linking sentences that make all the paragraphs an integrated topic.

    'Cartoons' would be my very first choice in this regard. Personally I'd have said that an interesting headline and beginning would have hooked me to a story more, but in general, I have seen people more attracted to humorous cartoons on important topics and engage themselves in learning more on the topic. Obviously, cartoons are fun to interpret and , about anything can be expressed through them that cannot be through writing. And even young people love such illustrations. In all, I speak highly of cartoons as a tool of journalists.
    I know not how exactly journalists can make news much more interesting, for I have not experienced it first hand. But as a voracious reader, I might want them to have a little more catching headlines. This might do the charm, than just stating "40 people killed in an accident", I trust.

    Firstly , I think that the cartoon expresses the highest information about the Pandora Paper. In that cartoon the helplessness of the poor countries and how the rich people or the organization uses them are shown.

    Secondly, it took more time from me to understand the inner meaning of the cartoon. And it is very interesting for the viewer to see such types of cartoon with deep meaning.

    Lastly I think the perspective part is the honest opinion of the journalist which says that the people who explore these types of file have own interest behind this. Because without any intention nobody does anything.

    Still images or graphics is one of the most important auxiliary tools for the TV journalist, which must be given its due as long as it contributes to the success of the journalistic process. At which the graphics will appear * It is not logical to say the word New York and show the image of the United Nations building because the subconscious mind of the viewer, when he hears New York, expects to see the map of New York, it is necessary to link the image to the news story and to match some of them to the truth of the news and the speed of its delivery to the viewer, and a skilled journalist must To circumvent the press release by highlighting key points from written statements on the screen that must match the news, and the journalist is keen that the appearance of each point corresponds to the journalist’s reading of the relevant text. The viewer of those documented news and the speed of their absorption, this depends on the journalist to reach the viewer to the point of harmony and enjoyment greatly in receiving the press news...

    1)The 'cartoons' tells me most about the news story because it makes me feel creative and the pictures help create a movie about what has happened and the words helps people know bits about what has happened and aids people to create a vivid image.
    2)The 'numbers'makes me feel most interested in because there are many texts that have been posted online and due to the facts that millions of them have been leaked out and been made popular it makes me wonder how important the news was and why people have to tell secrets when online.
    3)I believe that the 'perspectives' shows the journalist's opinion because it says that the people are 'benefiting' from ending secrecy offshore.This might not benefit people because if the people were the ones who were hiding things from offshore then they might support the fact for ending secrecy offshore because if not they might be suspected as being a person who carries secrets to places offshore. Therefore it will not benefit them.

    I think that the field television report is also a helpful skill for the journalist, and it is one of the most complex and dangerous areas of journalistic work in terms of editorial and physical aspects. It requires high skill and a great deal of sensitivity, quick intuition and good journalistic behavior. The journalist clarifies many of the advantages and highlights the field role in clarifying the image and the press scoop. It serves the journalist and the press with all its pillars. However, it is difficult to consider all Arab field reporters as TV journalists, and many of them are journalists, and few are able to present TV journalism in the true sense. Perhaps the most important characteristic of this tool The assistance is that it is a large area in which the journalist is given the ability to demonstrate his abilities and skills in all its forms. Here we assert that the journalist is the first and last responsible for the information and scientific material

    The tool that tells me the most about the story is the “cartoon”, because it gives a clear story and a clear meaning. From the moment I read through it, I could clearly understand what it was trying to tell me;
    The people on the island seemed to be suffering and lost, which could represent people suffering from/ struggling with taxes and are almost homeless from a perspective. The word lost could imply being unsure, confused and not knowing what to do with the taxes, and how to deal with them, if they are struggling. Furthermore, it doesn't give an exact meaning, thus it allows the audience to understand it from their own point of view, hence, people won't just see it as a story about a shipwreck, but also all the other things it applies to.

    The tool that makes me the most interested is also the “cartoon”, because it is like a story. It tells you a moral, and the idea of it having pictures helps to understand it better. In addition, the idea of it being a comic, means it is short and simple, however it gives a huge, clear message/meaning and may not be a million words, but it speaks the story, like a million words. This also relates to the pictures; a picture tells a million words. Just like my previous paragraph, I will also mention the fact you can see it from different point of views, therefore, it is not as boring. Likewise, it tells the audience a meaning, but at the same time, does it in an unusual way, yet easy to understand.

    The tool that shows the journalists opinions, in my point of view, is the “perspective”, because it gives its opinion from one perspective. I think this perspective is the journalists point of view, however many may disagree, and sometimes, the ones benefiting from it can not do anything about it because there may be laws or things against revealing something such as this information/trying to stop it. If it is mostly the rich avoiding taxes, then surely it would not be a problem for them to afford high security, for keeping this secret. The ones benefiting from it, can not always stop such behavior, as it is not up to them to decide whether or not they can change rules, about sharing information like this. Likewise, sometimes they don't have the power to do so. It may be government ,who is performing this action, therefore they do may not be able to overpower them. Another thing that could stop people is threat; they could always get threatened, and put their life in danger. That is why I think “perspective” is the one that is more of the journalists opinion.

    Another way that journalists could share a news story, is through a song. This may seem like an unusual idea, but I think, that if they wrote a song about it, and gave it to a famous singer to perform, It could get thousands of people to hear it. It could be more useful the the other four because if it is catchy enough, it will hold in peoples heads, and they will be able to remember it, and sing it for ages. This helps, because they can understand the message, yet enjoy a good song. People who want to learn the lyrics, would most likely google them, and read through, realizing, if they haven't yet , what it is trying to tell people. In addition, if it achieves most of the things I listed above, it would most likely be announced in the news - including news papers, and news online - , radio stations and talked about all around.

    1. from my perspective it was easier to understand the meaning of the Pandora leak by looking at the picture. It is easier to understand; explains the meaning just by understanding the pictures.
    2. The 'Numbers' make me the most interested in the Pandora leak because it shows the amount of people who have been hiding money. Sending e-mails, documents and images to leak is only a fraction of ways that people can spread this.
    3. From my perspective, i find that it is unfair to others because regular citizens are paying more tax than people who are hiding their money every one should pay an equal amount of tax to the government

    I think that one of the most important things a journalist needs to explain is an explanation
    Because getting to change beliefs, whether dealing with a child or an adult with explanation and evidence, is not easy
    Rather, you can convince him of your point of view by providing evidence and simplifying the facts in proportion to all age groups.
    The numbers will only support your interpretations
    The important thing is not the quantity and size of the numbers as much as the explanation of the damage inflicted on him
    As for theories, every rule has deviations, and not everyone can be convinced and approved.
    Leaving the cartoon explaining a point of view is not a good thing. Everyone sees something from his own perspective and according to his capabilities and intellectual, cultural and educational level.
    There may be many opinions that may not agree or give the full idea.
    With interpretation, you can convince everyone of the point of view using the method of persuasion and creativity.

    How to be a creative and influential journalist and what are his tools and methods:

    From my point of view, the profession of journalism is a great and difficult profession, and the journalist must be up to the responsibility.

    First: To be passionate about his work, for rioting is the basis of success.

    Second: He has to broaden his horizons and open up his chest.

    Journalistic work requires continuous learning every day.

    Third: He must have a passion for writing and talking about new topics and working on modern, renewable and strange ideas.

    Fourth: He must possess the skill to overcome the difficult times he faces every day of his work.

    If he possesses these qualities, he will have a chance of creativity and influence.

    It is one of the tools and methods that assist the journalist and help him to complete his blindness successfully.

    1) Possibility to use audio and video.

    2) Rapid echo return measurement.

    3) Links or referrals.

    4) Archive and recall information.

    5) Reproduction of the material.

    6) Diversification of presentation forms.

    1. I believe that the cartoon tells us the most about this particular story. I think this as it really emphasises the greed of the people who are depositing their money, especially by the fact that the boat is labelled,''rich people'', and that the 3 islanders are struggling under the weight of the bag of money. The island is also displayed as isolated, meaning that the ''rich people''are trying to find places were nobody can find their hidden money, which makes the cartoon easily understandable.
    2. What really intrigued me were the numbers. Shocking statistics such as ,''6,406,119 documents of people were recorded of those who did use off shore accounts when depositing their money in remote areas'' really interest me, as the most surprising ones make me think more deeply into the severity of a situation.
    3.In my opinion, ''perspectives'' give more of an insight into a journalist's point of view. This is because a perspective itself means someone's opinion, and journalists often express their views via online platforms or in news articles: this is called a perspective.

    In my perspective the "Cartoon" tells me more about the news about The Pandora Papers.
    Because normally words can not make you imagine. If you we want to make people think or imagine about something, we need its visual representation. And if it's in an eyecathy way, there might nothing fantastic than that. So cartoon plays a great role here . We can easily understand from the cartoon that the rich are hiding their offshore taxes from all for their own benefits. But they are using the poor people and they are the sufferers and they are kept shut. That's why one can easily understand any context from these animations/cartoons rather than stats or media headlines.
    So I think the things mentioned above are the journalist' own opinion & it won't be bad if I get through more of the reports as I already know the context.

    In my opinion, "CARTOONS" expresses the whole information of any matter at a glance. Cartoons are the greatest way to show something to the people. Many people of the world don't have the patience to read all the explanations regarding a incident. Most of the people ignore the numbers also when they see it large. But a cartoon always attracts people of all age. Children can also learn the big big incidents of the world by seeing a cartoon about it in a newspaper or in a website or in social media. Many people just seeing the cartoon wants to know more, and then they go through the explanation. So, cartoons are a great way to express something to its highest.

    I think the most important tool to describe the news story is the statistical representation of the huge amount of data in a chart(or something similar medium). For covering huge stories like Pandora Paper, I think the best way to describe is to merge the huge amount of data into a smaller and more organized method. This method might be graphical representation by showing the top picks of the story. Another way of describing the news story in a charismatic way is to put some punching line in the news story.(For example the inclusion of various celebrities in the Pandora Papers hugely attracted the readers .)


    #2#
    Personally what mostly attracts me towards any news is the cartoons, digital illustrations, various graphical data representations. Recently I have observed that many newspaper includes videos and other attachments to the main story and there are QR codes through which we can access those attachments. These types of inclusion really makes the news more lively and more people read that news.

    #3#
    To me without any doubt through cartoons and digital illustrations, journalists can express their own stance on any particular topic. For example in the following cartoon we can easily understand that the offshore shelter taxes are very inhuman for the mass people of those islands. That is one of the most beautiful thing about journalism. The journalists not only express the authentic raw news, but they raise their voice against the inhuman activities around us.

    The first thing that makes a news interesting is its impeccable headline then the way the story is told, like using cartoons, figures, photographs because a picture depicts a thousand words that makes for the people quite understandable. But only eye catching news will not be read by all people rather attention is also required like the news could publish not only in newspapers but also in online platforms like Facebook ,twitter or as e-news etc. In story the retro perspective and the results ,benefits ,problems of the situation and a non biased opinion should also be given. Then the news should be published in not only in the mother language or in the international language rather the language of the minority should also given privileged and if possible sign language news paper should also come to light. Those who are blind for them audio news is very helpful ,like in online platform the news is given and its recording is also given. The final thing is availability because there any many places where news paper is not available and so they can't have the knowledge about the situation, so the newspaper should be priced in a perfect figure and its availability should be insured.

    I think the cartoon tells us most about the news story. This is because it is comprehendable for a child and describes the news story in a detailed and fun way. I find the numbers the most interesting because they are straightforward and a reader can estimate the real scale of the pandora papers using them. The perspective portion is the part that give the opinion of the journalist. This is because it is a statement saying that the benefitors should be the ones to end it and it is also written by a journalist.

    First of all, the tool that tells me the most about a news story is a cartoon that gets me excited
    I know the news, that is, I enjoy reading it by explaining the events with pictures that make them clear, which makes me imagine the story.
    Secondly I think the numbers are because if they were long I would probably overlook them most of the time.
    Third, I think the perspective is that the journalist expresses his point of view and expresses his own opinions correctly, and I very much like the points of view.
    Finally, I think that the journalist can express in other ways, for example, in small articles and be brief so that the reader does not get bored when reading them.

    First of all, in my opinion, theories are the ones that tell me the most about the news story, because they give me a topic to think about and this is what will attract me to the news story. I like to hear different theories, because I can also own my own theory in the matter, and because theories are something that increases your focus on the matter and your thinking, and this will give more room to think and delve deeper into the news story, that is, it will make me interested in it, because I want to know more and more so that I can get a correct and convincing theory that I can publish and tell people about , For example: I was sitting on the phone readin debates by Dostoevsky and Nietzsche,this made me search more and more about the topics of their debates, and this is the case with news stories if they formulated them through theories,debates are what give journalists the freedom to express their opinions because it will make every journalist tell his doubts or evidence. It will make the journalist share his opinion freely because he wants to prove the truth and wants his theory to win,You will find him working hard to reach a logical theory in which he can overcome the rest of the theories to increase his importance and fame, And if it becomes popular, he will be able to express his theories on a larger scale, and thus the journalist will help viewers think about the news story and share their theories as well so, theories are also usefully for journalist

    Before starting to answer the attached questions, I would like to thank you a lot for this wonderful article. I really liked it, as I am a fan of the profession of journalism. I think that I practice this profession in a daily manner on my own by trying to communicate information and study data to myself, by reliance on summarizing the lessons learned and the important points. In every lesson, I believe that I am a natural journalist or that necessity is the mother of invention.

    I would also like to mention that a successful journalist can determine the type of presentation he will choose, whether he will choose serious statements or will he present them in a humorous way, each news has what suits him and suits the situation in which this news will be presented.

    Now I will answer the questions.

    First, I think that the method of explanation is the most method that tells me more about the news story, due to its expansion in presenting the information and narrating it in a comprehensive manner through which I can easily understand the story.

    Second, I think that the most interesting way is the cartoon, because this method is very interesting and entertaining to the point that it makes me check this cartoon and check all its details, also this method encourages me to read articles and other news about this story, it is really fun for adults and children, both of them Looking for fun in telling stories.

    Third, I think that the perspectives method is the most successful way to show the private viewpoints of journalists, and to respond to (the perspectives) I would say the viewpoints should be based on extensive research and multiple valid statements in the end you give your own opinion as a journalist based on reliable factual data, And if you lose the credibility of your audience once, it is very difficult to regain their trust. Be careful, journalist, by using this method to present your story, as some wars may cool down according to your summarized information.

    I think there are many other ways a journalist can devise to present his or her story in an interesting and accurate way.
    After a long search, I've found that there are modern ways of communicating news stories, including the following:
    1- Shorter attention spans, as people move from screen to screen, exchanging depth of knowledge for breadth and speed;

    2- Content snacking, consuming content on complex topics in small, digestible pieces on the go;

    3- The tendency to turn to sources that reinforce our views, leaving us in "content bubbles", and making social consensus more difficult to form among an increasingly divided and scattered electorate.

    These and other methods are nothing but complements to each other. By showing the numbers, I give the reader a quick look at the news story which I think will help them see many stories in a short time.

    Thank you for reading.

    I hope you like it.

    1.
    I think the 'CARTOONS' tells the the most about the story. In the cartoons we can see that The poor people expect the rich people to help. But the rich people just uses the poor people for their own benefit by establishing offshore companies in their country and that helps them to avoid a huge amount of taxes. And this is the perfect example of this cruel world. As cartoon is not any specific language so I think this is very easy for all kind of people to understand. Anyone can understand with their own language and thoughts by watching the cartoons. And these cartoons explain the total story that what is happening in today's world, so I think this tells the most about the story.

    2.
    According to my opinion 'PERSPECTIVE' is the most interesting tool. The perspective says that those people who should or who can end the secrecy of this offshore companies they are the actual ones who are being benefitted from those offshore companies. And perspective is the part of this which tells that what the things that the offshore companies actually do, who are getting benefits from there and also making us curious about the terms like 'offshore','pandora papers' etc. In a word, I think this tells the whole secrets about the offshore companies in a very clever way. And that is why I think "PERSPECTIVE" is the most interesting tool.

    3.
    In my opinion, I guess that the "CARTOONS" are the own opinion of the journalists. Because I think the journalists tried to inform the whole secrets about the offshore companies. And as a solution they found this kind of cartoons which is short, easy to understand, attractive and effective as well. Because people of any ages will understand these cartoons very easily. And the journalists made it from the overall situation of the offshore companies. And that is why I think "CARTOONS" is the own opinion of the journalists.

    1. The tool that tells me the most about the news story is 'Cartoon'. This media helps to fully explain the story. Even if the cartoon show is a little abstract, the cartoon shows how the rich are actually sheltering their tax in a distant place. Also, we can see that on the island, the people are in need of crucial help, and seeing the ship, their hopes got up. But, the ship of the rich was not there to help them, rather they just used the island for their own benefit without actually helping the island and the people. Thus, in this way, the cartoon depicts the true story and it also helps us to justify the activity of the rich.

    2. The tool that I am most interested in is the 'Perspectives' tool. Here it is said that the people who have the power to stop and bring the secrecy to light are the ones who are using it to their benefit. It interested me why the ones who were supposed to be heroes are rather holding on to the secret. My interest and curiosity led me to believe that the selfishness and greed of those people led to this. Moreover, the tool perspective helped to express a very important part of the story very easily in fewer words. Thus, I was highly intrigued by this tool.

    3. The tool of perspective also shows the journalists' own opinions. Here, the journalists are doing something called, 'the blame game'. Even if they are working their best to show the common people the secret information, some of them just wish to stir things up and thus they add some unnecessary extensions to the news. This problem is such a thing that many people cannot go against it. Even if he/she is very powerful to bring an end to this secrecy, he/she may have more pressing problems disabling him from doing that. There is no profit in playing the blame game, rather a solution needs to be sought out. So, that's why I think that this tool expressed the journalists' own opinion.

    In my opinion, journalists can communicate the news in another way, which is to interview celebrities. Before each interview with a celebrity, they must place an advertisement that the viewer can't skip. In a short form that explains the news story. And doing these interviews with celebrities who are very famous, such as: BTS, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and others, will find a great attraction. For example: 3 weeks ago at the United Nations, the Korean band BTS participated, and the number of views increased incredibly, so that the audience were waiting for the broadcast to start at the United Nations in days and hours. If we take advantage of something like this by placing an advertisement that shortens the news story, we will ensure that the news story spreads widely, because we as teenagers or young people, like to be attracted to our attention using what we like, and when we see that there is interest in what we like. It will motivate us to spread the news topic , but there are also points you should pay attention to if you want to publish the news story as an advertisement before celebrity interviews:

    1) Not to associate the famous with having anything to do with the news story. If it is political, to clarify this point in the first moments of the announcement. If you don't, someone will harm the celebrity and thus the audience will attack you , and your news story will be denied.
    2) To put a short advertisement that summarizes everything so that you can attract viewers.
    Also an advice from me as a viewer is "I prefer the journalist to think a lot to come up with his own theory, so that he can stay in touch with the audience because the audience is attracted to convincing theories that contain facts, examples and percentages"

    CHALLENGE:-
    A new tool I think journalists can use to reach more people with their news is that they can use virtual advertisements on different sites, social media, etc. For example, on youtube, we see ads for the products of different companies. So, the journalists can use these places to insert news stories using animation, cartoons, infographics, etc. This will obviously reach many people, as these sites are becoming more popular day by day. I think, in terms of reaching more people, this method will be most yielding than all the 4 tools mentioned above. But, the full explanation might be a little hard, as the video shown needs to be short and fast-paced. Because long videos might bore people. So, in the case of description of the news, it might come after cartoon and explanation.

    In my opinion, “explanations” tells the most about offshore taxation, companies or banks. Because other three aspects only can explain one’s personal opinion but when we want to go be informed about everything we must have to know as a whole what the story is otherwise we can not judge something just at a glance. And numbers are kind of explanation but only quantitative whereas cartoon and perspective only can what the thinker or the artist has in his mind.

    Cartoons are the most interesting thing I find here. Despite the perception in some quarters that cartoons constitute an important medium for framing social issues, they are often dismissed on the grounds of political absurdity and ideological insignificance. Cartoons are seen as offering just “passing chuckles” rather than any “deep reflection” on social issues. The perception may be related to the cartoon's discursive spatial limitation and its very nature as a visual mode of communication. Visual modes of communication are deemed deficient in performing analytical communication. Cartoons are something which show personal interests of us.So if everyone starts giving personal opinions it could make a big countable changes.

    According to my consideration, perspective shows journalists’ own opinions. Perspective represents a particular attitude towards or way of regarding something; a point of view. And as a journalist it’s must to express own thoughts on any upgoing issue. And journalists’ personal opinion can bring about a big change on the society as they observe the society so closely more than anyone. The International Organization of Journalists (IOJ, French: Organisation internationale des journalistes) was an international press workers' organization based in Prague, Czechoslovakia, during the Cold War. It was one of dozens of front organizations launched by the Soviet Union in the late 1940s and early 1950s. In every aspect o our society journalists are the reviewers and by their reviews we lead a safe and sound life.

    I think that CARTOONS can attract more people compared to the other tools. This is because human psychology tends to look into the particular thing that is not so broad and is easily understandable. For example, suppose a topic is explained in two different ways. First, an article that very smoothly explains the topic but is very long in size, and second, a picture of a cartoon that describes the topic but you'll need to brainstorm a bit. Without a doubt, most people will take the second option that is the CARTOON. Because the cartoon uses lesser words and defines the topic in a way that is a bit more entertaining for the mind. So, in my opinion, CARTOONS can easily put out the opinions of the journalists to more people compared to other tools.

    1. From my perspective, NUMBERS tells us most about the news story. Because before and after reading a news we all tend to have a question in our mind, "Is this news true?" or sometimes we ask, "Are they spreading rumors?" Undoubtedly numbers provide individuals a sense of certainty regarding what they’re seeing, reading or hearing. Whenever we tend to see any number in any story or news we deem the stories or news are more reliable. Furthermore, sometimes due to shortage of time or due to some unavoidable reasons we want to understand the principal issue of the news promptly. In that case if the Numbers are highlighted or mentioned then it makes the news more summarized and interesting. Just to state an example, in these Covid -19 pandemic period we used to focus on the news that contained statistics of the number of confirmed cases, recovered patients, tests, and death toll. This way we used to remain aware about the situation of the country and the world. Just like these when we just look at the news of climate change and other stories regarding pollution, what makes us more aware is the number, mostly the statistics of how we are damaging the earth and how it is going to affect us in the future. For example, if we take a look at this paragraph describing the climate change with statistics, taken from earthday.org

    Scientists estimate dozens of species of plants and animals currently go extinct each day —nearly 1,000 times the natural rate. By mid-century, as many as 30 to 50 percent of the total species found on Earth will have disappeared.

    This paragraph creates more awareness among the general people than a simple document or article.


    2. Next the thing that makes me more interested in the news is, CARTOONS. Cartoons are a great way to make people understand the news. Either to a children or student. I remember when I was a kid of 8-10 years old I used turn over the pages of the newspaper and whenever I saw a carton or any interesting painting I used to go to that page and try to understand what the cartoon wants to say. And of course a cartoon or painting or an image worth a 1000 words. If we just look back how we made the kids aware about covid 19 was by paintings and cartoons and undoubtedly kids move towards whatever they find interesting. Not only that this way we can raise awareness about climate change too among all individuals and I am sure old people finds cartoon interesting too. And in cartoons, color began to take over cartoons with the introduction of color in the press and much more, following the appearance of digital newspapers, with all the advantages that this involves in the transmission of the message.

    3. I believe CARTOONS and DOCUMENTS shows the journalists opinion more clearly. A journalist may look at the news in either a humor, irony or sarcasm a fact or event of a political, economic or social nature. And the way they can express this to the audience is through cartoons or caricatures. Whenever there are caricatures or cartoons we tend to see the artists focus on the gesture and expression which sends a direct and univocal message about how the journalist is portraying the news. Different journalists have different views and perspectives so maybe the same news can be portrayed in different ways through cartoons. Through documents the message of the journalists can be explicit or implicit, that is, presented clearly and accurately so that the reader can grasp the meaning without further information, or a concealed message, encrypted or that can only be understood if the reader has prior knowledge of the subject in issue.

    Thank you.

    Among the three tools given here, I believe cartoon tells not only me but all other people the most about the news story. Cartoon is a simple drawing showing the features of its subjects. Cartoon can make any complex subject much easier to anyone. At the same time, a cartoon of one page can describe what an article of ten pages can describe. People, most of the time prefer cartoons just because of it save a lot of time. Cartoons are attractive. They can easily catch the attention of anyone. News stories like this are not often understood by children. Trying to explain these via cartoons can make them understand and enrich their knowledge. At the same time, they can describe the condition of a class of people easily. Right in this picture, we can see poor people are suffering and suddenly they got some hope seeing the rich people coming. But instead helping, the rich people put another tax on the poor which eventually turns into a burden to the poor and they left. This is the real scenario of the society nowadays. If we wanted to express these through words; the emotions, the conditions and the sufferings of the poor in this context could not be expressed to the world in the same way cartoons have done. That is the reason why I think cartoons tell me the most about the news story.
    Going on, cartoons make me the most interested about the news story. Cartoons are often made attractive. Cartoons can easily drag the eyes of more people into it than an article of 1000 words can. At the same time, a person would want to save his time by just enjoying a cartoon by spending 30 seconds than to read an article by spending 10 minutes. In these ways, cartoons help me to learn about the news story. At the same time, cartoons can be colorful and lively which can be relaxing as well. That is why I find cartoon the most interesting among the tools.
    To me, cartoons show the journalists’ own opinion. In the given cartoon, a journalist can easily display the news story that how the rich people affect the poor. A journalist can easily and indirectly express the truth against any big politicians, leaders etc. through cartoons, but through words, it cannot be expressed indirectly. It turns difficult to say anything against politicians and leaders without mentioning their names in articles. But a journalist can easily reveal the truth by drawing cartoons. The truth will be revealed and the journalist will be out of any risk as well. Cartoons in this way give the freedom to journalists to express their own opinion.

    I think that the explanations are the most important. It clearly tells us about what is legal by law and what isn't, moreover it showcases how it is morally unfair. The property or wealth going offshore, is partly a property of the country it came from. Of course it depends on how the offshore system is carried out, but from my point of view it deprives the home nation of what should have been its property. When it comes to politicians dealing with the resources of the country, of course the people need to know about it. Whether it is tax evasion or not, the people deserve to know about how things are being taken care of in their country. And when it comes to rich people avoiding tax, it just needs to be stopped. It is much worse than what we see in brain drain. Because in case of tax evasion, the income also comes from the host nation or business under the name of the country.
    Thus the explanations are the most important because basically they are a compilation of all the information gathered by journalists and discussed by experts on the subject to make it easily accessible and understandable by the general people.

    Pen is the sword for a journalist and pencil is the sword for a cartoonist. From my opinion, Explanations can express the matter of Pandora papers more strongly and clearly than cartoons.

    Cartoons can express the feelings, experience and protectiveness about the Pandora Papers which sometimes not be enough for a common people. Cartoon is a part of art which is sometimes able to make common people aware of darkness. Again, the explanations of cartoons depends on the viewers mentality. But, Explanations can make a better description about a situation or fact. There may be some information, may be some comparison, may be some example which is easier for a journalist to express Pandora papers with more informative way to the world.

    In my opinion, the explanation told me more about the news.
    Due to the use of other tools, it is case-sensitive. Cartoons don't have the power to explain everything. In addition, perspectives differ from person to person. Therefore, it is not acceptable to everyone. Also, numbers are just raw data, however, readers and listeners need solid information about a story.
    Explanations are also interesting to me because when I learn more about a story, I can easily grasp the whole idea and side by side it is possible for me to get a clear opinion instead of getting a rough draft of the story. So, I think the explanation is the most important thing in the news.

    In my own point of view
    1. I think the cartoon tells me more about the news story because I can find out from the cartoon that the wealthy people are hiding the offshore taxes from the sufferers for their own benefit, and the poor people couldn't say anything to it which seems to be unfair. I tends to understand more about the Pandora paper from the cartoon rather than the media headlines.
    2. The cartoon makes me most interested in it because it is in form of cartoons that people will love to read especially childrens they will think it's some interesting films they usually watch and cartoon gain more attention of people most.
    3. I think the perspective shows the journalist's own opinions because I can understand from the perspective that those who are keeping the offshore tax secretly are also enjoying from it so they could not end the secrecy offshore.

    surely, the cartoon tells me most about the news story. Because a good picture is worth of thousand explanations and articles. in the picture, it is clear that, the rich people are hiding their wealth in illegitimate way, and the poor are being more suffered. This influences the vicious circle of poverty too. the cartoon is the best to me because it is clear from people of all ages. where an explanation or an article may not reach that much popularity.

    the number made me most interested because it represents an statistics on different elements of the news. which is really informative and interesting.

    and I think the perspective represents the journalists own opinion. To me the definition of perspective is to see any matter in my own way. So, I have no doubt about it.

    The other way that the journalists can share the news story is taking interviews from the experts and that should be published attractively.
    The reason behind my first choice, that is, interviews of experts is as follows-
    Expert can explain a news or incident in the best, easiest and shortest way which will grow curiosity among the highly literate people. they will read that and understands the facts. Other people will be also benefited by that because the better explanation will lessen them from being bored.
    The reason behind my second choice is,
    any good piece of writing but not presented attractively isn't effective much. So journalist should make the writing attractive adding cartoons, pictures, tables, poems, songs etc. Then the general people of all ages can be benefited by it. In the social media it can be published with the animations or other things.
    These will make the sharing of stories in the best way.

    1. I would like to answer the 1st question differently as from my perspective, I found all these tools to be jointly effective in my case. Unlike others, I didn't find any single medium like cartoon or explanation to be the most effective. As for example. I couldn't understand what was being described only through the cartoon. The same applies for the other tools. But at the end, when all of these were combined together and also, the narration was being done by Tom@Topical talks, I was able to get an idea regarding the Pandora papers. So, rather than selecting a 'single most-effective tool', I would rather prefer a joint combination of all these, because that was how I was able to understand the content.

    2. The numerical data made me the most interested about the story because at first, I underestimated the magnitude of the pandora papers. But when these numbers were stated, I was completely surprised and I felt an urge to know more about the story.

    3. In my opinion, perspective shows the most about the journalist's opinion because the word itself says, 'perspective'. It helps to reveal the perspective the journalist views the story from and that's why it tells the most about his/her opinion.

    A different way to illustrate this case would be through bringing down a pathway of how a person actually relates him/herself to the pandora papers. This pathway can be shown through more direct and simple infographics, or even simpler, through easy drawings and few words. I think this might be effective because when we actually start knowing about a story from its origin and track its pathway, it becomes easier(at least in my case) to grasp the headline.

    Thank you for reading this much.

    Which of these tools...
    1) Tells you the most about the news story? Why?
    In my opinion, the NUMBERS regarding the amount of leaked Pandora Papers tell the most about the news story. Because, universally we use the numbers in day-to-day life. And most importantly, numbers are nurtured by mathematics, the power of reasoning, creativity and abstract or spatial thinking. By simply looking at the number even a normal person can realise how huge this Pandora paper leak was and how threatening it is for a country’s overall development.
    2) Makes you most interested? Why?
    I think the ‘Cartoon’ makes me most interested about offshoring, avoiding tax and money laundering. Since at the primary glance of the cartoon not only me but anyone can realize that the wealthy cover-up remote benefits beneath the pretence of an offshore company that individuals ought to know. As appeared within the final portion of the cartoon, standard individuals are tragically not given a chance to raise voice against bigoted offshore picks up and their voices are literally bolted in this colossal heap of avoided charges.
    3) Shows the journalists’ own opinions? Why?
    I think that ‘PERSPECTIVES’ shows the journalists’ own opinions. Because in the PERSPECTIVES part, Ryle (An Investigative Journalist) of the ICIJ said that, the people that could end the secrecy of offshore systems are themselves benefiting from it which explains why existing political bodies seem unable to shut down systems that allow wealth concealment and tax evasion. I believe, it also explains how deep rooted that investigation by the journalist was and how hard they are working to benefit the world and exposing the powerful and influential people who are misusing their position and power.
    4) Challenge: What other ways can journalists share a news story. And how useful are they compared to the four we have listed above?
    Nowadays, it is seen that, due to marketing strategy, many unnecessary news are automatically brought to light while many useful news fall behind. So, powerful ways should be followed by a journalist to share a news story so that everyone becomes aware of it in a very short time.
    In comparison to the four listed ways, using social media to share a news story and using a brand to spread a news story is undoubtedly a beneficial way. Statistics shows that a person in average spends around 3 to 4 hours surfing internet and around 2.5 hours surfing on social media. Again 95% of adults are most likely to follow a brand through social networking while 42% of the world’s population has an account on one or more social media platforms. Therefore, this social media can be a very powerful medium to share a news story. Again, if it is through a specific brand or influential person, the spread of news becomes double and thousands of people become aware of it within a very little amount of time.

    Thanks for your patience reading!

    Also what I think about is that:The Pandora Papers investigation lays bare the global entanglement of political power and secretive offshore finance.

    Based upon the most expansive leak of tax haven files in history, the investigation reveals the secret deals and hidden assets

    "_Animation_ Solve three questions is fun for children, and through it children can acquire high values, so it is important. Childhood shapes the human personality, and its negatives are difficult to change in adulthood, and this interests me because it is also fun, entertaining and educational, and this type of story gives the writer freedom Express his creative spirit.

    Extra I think if we meet a celebrity it will be a singer, for example (Edward Sheeran) because the viewership of his videos is 2 billion and the number of followers is 59 million, for example, a journalist might put an ad in the middle of the video that can't be skipped here, Have the viewer focus on it and then the story will spread far and wide

    From my point of view the cartoon is a common way to all people either adults or children as the psychology of the human humans' brain is affected by comics or drawing easily , Cartoon is an effective tool to introduce facts as it is suitable for all classes and ages and it has been used for ages for example Egyptian Pharaohs used it on their buildings and monuments and they used drawing as a way to express their facts , habits and feelings . This is an evidence that cartoon is the easiest tool to get the idea of the topic

    I think I am interested in numbers as numbers excite the reader's interest to search for more facts about the topic and to make sure of information and it's an accurate tool to introduce information

    I think explanation is an important way to introduce the journalist's opinion because when it is written in a text it gives more details and this is appropriate to understand fast

    I think journalist share news stories by interviewing the celebrities and politicians put them questions and make them answerable and responsible. Journalist ask to politicians about pandora papers and make them responsible and ask them where is tax that payed by peoples and nothing is approved. Yesterday a journalist take interview of coaches of pakistan and india and bring their comments.

    I think cartoons tell me the most about the new story because in this cartoon tells us how rich people exile their money in distant islands and in the last part it also says the money is important than life. This ship instead of picking the lost men up but they left the money in the island so that no one can find them. As pandora papers are all about money laundering and offshore,I believe that the cartoon can give a idea about it.
    The tool numbers make me most interested because it is the symbol of how many unfair deeds, corruption and money laundering are happening through out the world. The numbers of these misdeeds are crossing the rate of millions and it was collected by the journalist by their collective works, risks and sense of responsibilities. I wonder how the journalist through out the world gathered these humongous reports.
    I think the tool perspective shows the journalists' own opinions because this statement was given by an investigative journalist. Only a journalist knows how it feels to be a journalist and how much pressure there is from upper class people on the system. In this statement, I think, it reflects the bribe that the upper class level people gives to the journalists to shut their mouth and the greed of a journalist. It means that the saviors are the invaders

    I truly believe that the factors that explicitly convey the news in pristine terms are numbers(statistics).
    Numbers generally don't lie, reflect confidence are less prone to subjective comprehension. News delivery is expected to be absolutely free of any conceived notions. While cartoons and written explanations inadvertently reflect the opinions of the maker.
    For instance, in this scenario pardona paper, the number shown, tell us about the leaked document that can be investigated for further clearance. These numbers serve as a reference point, probably if we were to question any authority regarding this issue we would be able to ask how much of the leaked data has been accessed and investigated. Therefore numbers tell me the most about news.

    Cartoons definitely make everything more interesting and inclusive. Person from any age group can go through the news with ease and pictorial depiction is indeed the best to attract attention and to deliver your message. Cartoons are very subjective and open to discussion. Perspective plays a massive role in understanding.

    Perspectives tell the most about the writer's opinions. These come directly from the person and speak for themselves.

    Challenge question.
    The other way journalists share a news story is through videography. Recording the incident or live telecasting from the impacted places is an excellent way to share news. It is likes bringing people together from different regions to pay attention to what is happening. It's effective, efficient, reliable, bridge between past, present and future and at times work as a proof as well

    Columnists can convey the news in another manner, which is to talk with big names. Prior to each meeting with a superstar, they should put a commercial that the watcher can't skip, in a short structure that clarifies the news story,And I can ensure that if you do this to interviews with big names who are extremely well known, for example, BTS, Blackpink, Selena Gomez and others, you will track down an extraordinary fascination, For instance: 3 weeks prior at the United Nations, the Korean band BTS partook, and the quantity of perspectives expanded amazingly, so the crowd was trusting that the transmission will begin at the United Nations in days and hours, If we exploit something like this by putting a promotion that abbreviates the report, we will guarantee that the report spreads generally, on the grounds that we as teens or youngsters, as to be stood out for to us utilizing what we like, and when we see that there is interest in what we like, it will persuade us to get out the word theme, yet there are additionally directs you should focus toward assuming you need to distribute the report as an ad before VIP interviews:

    • Do not relate the popular with having a say in the report in case it is political, so explain this point in the principal snapshots of the declaration, if you don't, the person who will hurt him is the renowned and along these lines the crowd will assault you , And your report will be denied

    • Put a short promotion that sums up everything so you can draw in watchers

    And furthermore counsel from me as a watcher, I incline toward the writer to think a ton to concoct his own hypothesis, so he can keep in contact with the crowd in light of the fact that the crowd is drawn to persuading speculations that contain realities, models, rates.

    1. According to my point of view, NUMBERS recounts to us most with regards to the report. Since prior and then afterward perusing a news we as a whole will generally have an inquiry in our psyche, "Is this news valid?" or now and again we inquire, "Are they spreading bits of hearsay?" Undoubtedly numbers give people a feeling of conviction in regards to what they're seeing, perusing or hearing. At whatever point we will generally see any number in any story or news we consider the accounts or news are more dependable. Moreover, some of the time because of deficiency of time or because of some unavoidable reasons we need to comprehend the chief issue of the news instantly. All things considered assuming the Numbers are featured or referenced, it makes the news more summed up and fascinating. Just to express a model, in these COVID-19 pandemic period we used to zero in on the news that contained insights of the quantity of affirmed cases, recuperated patients, tests, and loss of life. This way we used to stay mindful with regards to the circumstance of the nation and the world. Actually like these when we simply check out the information on environmental change and different stories with respect to contamination, what makes us more mindful is the number, for the most part the insights of how we are harming the earth and what it will mean for us later on. For instance, if we investigate this section portraying the environmental change with measurements, taken from earthday.org

    Researchers gauge many types of plants and creatures right now go terminated every day — almost multiple times the normal rate. By mid-century, upwards of 30 to 50 percent of the complete species found on Earth will have vanished.

    This passage makes more mindfulness among the overall individuals than a straightforward archive or article.

    2. Next what makes me more inspired by the news is, CARTOONS. Kid's shows are an extraordinary way of causing individuals to comprehend the news. Either to a kids or understudy. I recall when I was a child of 8-10 years of age I utilized turn over the pages of the paper and at whatever point I saw a container or any fascinating canvas I used to go to that page and attempt to get what the animation needs to say. Furthermore, obviously an animation or painting or a picture worth a 1000 words. On the off chance that we simply think back how we made the children mindful about Coronavirus was by canvases and kid's shows and without a doubt kids move towards whatever they view as fascinating. Not just that this way we can bring issues to light with regards to environmental change too among all people and I am certain elderly folks individuals observes animation intriguing as well. What's more, in kid's shows, shading started to take over kid's shows with the presentation of shading in the press and substantially more, following the presence of advanced papers, with all the benefits that this includes in the transmission of the message.

    3. I accept CARTOONS and DOCUMENTS shows the columnists assessment all the more obviously. A writer might check out the news in either a humor, incongruity or mockery a reality or occasion of a political, monetary or social nature. Also, the manner in which they can communicate this to the crowd is through kid's shows or personifications. At whatever point there are exaggerations or kid's shows we will generally see the specialists center around the signal and articulation which sends an immediate and univocal message concerning how the columnist is depicting the information. Various columnists have various perspectives and points of view so perhaps a similar news can be depicted in various ways through kid's shows. Through archives the message of the writers can be express or certain, that is, introduced obviously and precisely so the peruser can get a handle on the significance minus any additional data, or a disguised message, encoded or that must be perceived if the peruser has earlier information regarding the matter in issue.

    Much Obliged To You.

    Above all else, In my perspective, Hypotheses or Theories are the ones that recount to me the most with regards to the report, since they give me a subject to ponder and this is the thing that will draw in me to the report. I like to hear various speculations, since I can likewise possess my own hypothesis regarding the present situation, and in light of the fact that speculations are something that builds your attention on the matter and your reasoning, and this will give more space to think and dive further into the report, that is, it will make me inspired by it, since I need to know increasingly more so I can get a right and persuading hypothesis that I can distribute and fill individuals in about, For instance: I was perched on the telephone readin banters by Dostoevsky and Nietzsche, this made me search increasingly more with regards to the subjects of their discussions, and this is the situation with reports if they defined them through theories, debates are what give columnists the opportunity to offer their viewpoints since it will make each writer tell his questions or proof. It will make the writer share his perspective uninhibitedly in light of the fact that he needs to demonstrate reality and needs his hypothesis to win,You will see him endeavoring to arrive at a consistent hypothesis wherein he can defeat the remainder of the speculations to build his significance and notoriety, And on the off chance that it becomes famous, he will actually want to communicate his hypotheses for a bigger scope, and hence the columnist will assist watchers with pondering the report and offer their hypotheses also.

    1. I might want to respond to the first inquiry contrastingly as according to my viewpoint, I viewed this multitude of instruments as together successful for my situation. In contrast to other people, I didn't find any single medium like animation or clarification to be the best. Concerning model. I was unable to get what was being depicted uniquely through the animation. The equivalent applies for different instruments. In any case, toward the end, when these were joined together and furthermore, the portrayal was being finished by Tom@Topical talks, I had the option to get a thought with respect to the Pandora papers. In this way, rather than choosing a 'solitary best device', I would prefer to lean toward a joint blend of every one of these, in light of the fact that that was the manner by which I had the option to comprehend the substance.

    2. The mathematical information made me the most intrigued about the story on the grounds that right away, I disparaged the greatness of the pandora papers. Be that as it may, when these numbers were expressed, I was totally astounded and I wanted to find out about the story.

    3. As I would see it, point of view shows the most with regards to the columnist's viewpoint in light of the fact that the actual word says, 'point of view'. It assists with uncovering the viewpoint the columnist sees the story from and that is the reason it tells the most with regards to his/her perspective.

    An alternate way of delineating this case would be through cutting down a pathway of how an individual really relates him/herself to the pandora papers. This pathway can be displayed through more straightforward and basic infographics, or considerably less complex, through simple drawings and not many words. I figure this may be powerful on the grounds that when we really begin knowing with regards to a story from its starting point and track its pathway, it becomes easier(at least for my situation) to get a handle on the feature.

    Much thanks to you for perusing this much.

    I see that the correct perspective is that there are all tools to convey the secrets of the press, as we see here in the Gaza Strip strict and harsh restrictions on the freedom of the press, where each of the tools is cartoons, money, theories and records all play a role in conveying the news to the people and what is called Pandora's Leaves is called Nazar, in reference to the hidden dealings of the elite and the corrupt, where it plays a major role in concealing and falsifying facts, and where the Kremlin rejects baseless accusations in Pandora's documents.

    In my opinion, tool cartoons tell more about the news that overseas transactions are. Cartoons are visual images drawn to express opinions about people, events, and politics. They use satire and parody to communicate ideas and evoke emotional responses from a Library of Congress exhibition like "no laughing matter" political or editorial cartoons. They are "pictures with a point". Washington Post cartoonist Ann Telnaes said, "The editorial cartoonist's job is to expose the hypocrisy and abuse of power by politicians and powerful institutions in our society." Here in this cartoon I see some people locked up on an island in this cartoon depicting the impoverished. Afterwards, the villagers notice an approaching ship, which represents the longing of the poor for the help of the rich. it, dropping a sizeable sum of money, suggesting that large corporations and corporations have settled in underdeveloped countries for their own benefit. The "perspective" interested me most in this regard. Here in the perspective section it is written: "The people who could put an end to secrecy on the high seas are the ones who benefit from it," was quoted by Gerard Ryle of the ICIJ. The confidential documents reveal the offshore activities of Jordanian King Abdullah II, the Presidents of Ukraine, Kenya and Ecuador, the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The documents also reveal the financial dealings of Russian President Vladimir Putin's "unofficial advertising minister" and more than 130 billionaires from Russia, the United States, Turkey and other countries. Many of the powerful people who could help stop the offshore system instead benefit by hiding assets in secret companies and trusts while their governments do nothing to restrict a worldwide flow of illicit money that enriches criminals, according to the Information. The "explanation" tool is, in my opinion, the one that best reflects the opinion of the journalist himself. The journalist gave the explanations about offshore transactions: In his opinion, politicians and the rich have a leeway to avoid taxes. He has given this explanation through immense research that he has done by analyzing the statistics here. Your Own Opinion Here In addition to the 4 tools above, journalists can use event photos to convey news objectively while influencing viewers' view of people and events. This tool is also very effective in terms of successfully sharing a message with the audience along with the 4 tools provided.
