Photo Series Exposes How The Media Manipulates The Truth


We all know that media media today will do almost anything to get a great story… even if it isn't, well, necessarily correct or accurate.

In fact, according to a recent survey, more Americans have a negative (43%) than a positive (33%) view of the news media, and are finding it harder to be well informed because it is getting harder to determine which news is accurate.

In light of this, people have started posting examples of how media can use different techniques of deception, to trick you into seeing exactly what they wanted you to see. As you will discover, perspective really is everything! It all goes to show that a healthy dose of skepticism goes a long way, and getting your news from a wide range of different sources is your best bet to a more rounded view of the world we live in. Social media is good in that respect, but bad in terms of regulation, trolling and people shouting horrible things at each other. The good old traditional news media really is needed as a forum for rational debate and expert opinion, but they gotta stop with the manipulation already!
