When Snowden leaked the information, it didn’t just make the enemies hate the US further, but it also harmed the relationship it had with its ally countries. Aside from that, terrorist groups already have an idea on how the intelligence activities were performed, not only by the US, but also its ally countries such as Australia and UK. Details will be discussed further in the next argument. 3. The leaking of NSA information made terrorists informed of the counter terrorism measures of the United States of
Murrow Political Bias in media is one of the most rampant examples of bias in terms of its influence on mindsets of people. The statement above by Edward R. Murrow makes total sense in today’s world. Political Bias is at its peak during elections. Public has to vote for candidates and much information about the candidates comes from media. Media, during these times, takes this advantage.
Language and the usage of words is arguably humanity’s most powerful tool. It allows for mere thoughts to transform into ideas that can be shared with multiple individuals, whether this is through verbal or nonverbal means. Because of their ability to influence the masses, some politicians have used very calculated communication techniques to manipulate public opinion to their benefit, causing many Americans to view them as deceitful and untrustworthy. Over time, these techniques have become harder to detect, blurring the already thin line between fact and fiction. As it happens, what is supposed to be politician’s casual and conversational speech is sometimes compared to a subtle form of modern day propaganda.
The government brainwashes their citizens to get them to be unquestioningly loyal to the party. The issue of brainwashing stands out as one of the most important topics in this book as well as one that is very relevant to today. Orwell communicates through his book that brainwashing is pervasive and destructive to our sense of reality and logic as human beings, and that it has a negative impact on the citizens subjected to it. Orwell expresses this belief especially at the end when Winston is in the ministry of love. We get to see the party’s thoughts in full detail as O’Brien explains everything to Winston and simultaneously brainwashes him.
The documentary “Citizenfour” aims to raise public awareness about the state surveillance in the name of so-called maintenance of national security. It consists of related news and a series of interviews with Edward Snowden, revealing details about PRISM. What it mostly shows is facts rather than one’s opinion. Notice that the media depiction hugely influences the way people view the issue. The less opinion and emotional description are used, the more room for the audience to think.
Furthermore, the film also showcases the mass media’s influence on the American people. Similarly, to Wag the Dog, the mass media played a big role in covering the attacks during the Clinton administration. Believing that Bill Clinton started these attacks to sway attention away from the scandal, perhaps it is not a coincidence that the media was used as it reached a lot of people and could easily swift the attention of the viewers. Moreover, Wag the Dog also portrays politicians as experts in public manipulation through mass media. While the use of media during elections is common, the use of “fake news” to cover up a sex scandal, both in the film but also in “real life”, is an arguable presumption, but one that I find to be true.
Right to Information Act was formed taking a backing of this Fundamental Right. An individual cannot exercise his/her Right to Freedom of speech and expression without information. Now, the Whistleblowers in cases like that of Wikileaks- Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Kathryn Bolkovac, Savukku leaked classified information to the press and media and brought the world to know about the truth and facts. Whistleblowers strives for transparency in the system. Julian Assange claims to be interested in information and how it flows through society.
It has gotten a lot of recognition not only in America but other places too. Transgender youth, as Leelah, that grow up in very conservative christian families, amongst other religions, are told their whole lives how wrong it is, making them hate themselves. And if they are ever sent to a therapist it's almost always one who's biased and who says the exact things their paretns told them their whole life, and then the whole concept of their gender identity being wrong gets even more burned into their heads and they get even more convinced that there's something wrong with them. When in fact therapists are supposed to be very objective in their proffesion but instead in very religious areas bring their believes into the work place. Because misgendering you're child doesn't count as abuse and because most transgender teens who commit suicide never become older than 18 and therefor never gets the chance to be who they really are because the law makes it impossible for kids under 18 to transition by themselves, about 50% of trans teens never become adults, they die young not seeing any other way out, and are then grieved by their families as the gender they never
