My definition of Re-Presentation is using different media to present a copy of something which was original to try and make it seem as real to the orginal version as possible.
Re-Presentation- The way the media present 'something' as though it were real, it is not real merely a copy of something.
Signs- Something which communicates a piece of information.
Signifiers- Multiple 'ideas' or 'feelings' behind a sign. All signs belong to cultures.
Gate Keepers- The people in charge of what we get to see.
Ideology- A belief system.
