Text topic: Globalization and the Media
Text author: Веселин Кљајић и Сара Доневски
The paper critically reviews the role of journalistic documentary forms in contemporary journalism, mainly of global print media, with the intention of achieving top interpretation by using in-depth research and documentary mediation. The focus of the research is on the analysis of narrative in documentary reportage, not only as representative of new documentaristics, but also as a leader of global trends in storytelling, which already rules the media industry. A case study of National Geographic on a representative sample allows an insight into composition and mechanisms of intentionality in the analyzed documentary reportages, from which we can derive explanations for their ways of influence on the mind and emotions of the recipient, with ubiquitous psychagogical features. An immeasurable impact which those features have on the multimillion audiences/readers is also considered here.
