You missed the 2016 Emmy Awards. It wasn’t your intent, but you had a Sunday evening pickup soccer game that couldn’t be missed. And you got rid of cable TV last week so you couldn’t DVR it, either.
When you sat down with your coffee on Monday to get caught up, you wanted to know more than simply who won. The opening monologue, the best speeches, the biggest winners – where to go online when every news outlet prioritizes the event differently?
Juxtaposed.media understands that coverage varies, and presents it to readers in a way that reflects the wide range of what makes news. In the realm of politics, the perspective of a news outlet shapes its coverage. When it comes to the cultural events that everyone is talking about at work, it’s the anecdotes that often become the big story. The trick is making sure you hear about them.
In this case, Reuters has the list of Emmy winners, but you’ll get to that in a few minutes because something else caught your attention first. CNN has a story about your latest binge-watch: Stranger Things, and that’s your entry point into Juxtaposed.media’s feed of Emmy Awards stories. Stranger Things is cower-behind-the-couch scary, those kids are cute, and you’re so excited that it was renewed for another season. You click through.
With one click back, it’s then time for Politico’s coverage of Jeb Bush and his prominent role in host Jimmy Kimmel’s hilarious opening. After that, you knew FOX News would make a big deal of how much Donald Trump was a Hollywood target, and then the BBC pulled you in with its headline that lauded the Game of Thrones.
You eventually still check Reuters, but just like a sports contest, there’s more to what happened than just the final score.
Armed with the knowledge of not just who won in Hollywood but what you missed, you’re ready for the water cooler. You’ve learned everything you wanted to know and more about the Emmys, and you got to chase the soccer ball around, too, instead of sitting on the coach for four hours.
