One Direction vs The Media II: The Remaining Four

In Part two of this three-part discussion on One Direction, we dive right into the way the band has been portrayed in the media. Join Sara Feigin and Jenna Million as they discuss the way the media handled Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne as they left world of boyband-hood and entered into the world of solo artistry. This episode covers how the media spoke to and about each member of the band, and how that narrative shifted as the boys became more than just the boyband personality traits journalists were taught to treat them as at the very beginning of their careers. Along with going over interviews from some of the most internationally acclaimed media outlets, we also surveyed a few long-time fans of the band and bring up the points they brought across to us and why their opinions are the ones that matter the most.

!!!! As always this podcast is largely opinion-based, while we do in-depth research and include all sources in our show notes, we are humans with opinions. Nothing stated in this episode or any episode is meant to invalidate any listener’s personal views or feelings.
