His theory is that perpetuating an ideology works best when the people you are trying to control do not know what they don’t know. The people know part of the story, but they do not know the whole story.

In the book “The Great Gatsby” F. Scott Fitzgerald relentlessly attacks the lifestyle of the wealthy. Fitzgerald does this by expressing his characters as symbols, and characterizing them to be able to effectively critique the lives of materialistic people. Firstly, throughout the book one of the major characters serves as a gateway, this character is able to take Fitzgerald's opinions, and pass them on as his own throughout the story. This character is Nick, he is characterized as a more judgmental character, and this is because he is expressing Fitzgerald's opinions in the book. An example of when Fitzgerald uses Nick to express his own opinions on the wealthy lifestyle, can be found in the first chapter of the book, where it reads “Gatsby who represented everything for which I have an unaffected scorn.” This is very early in the book, and at the time Nick did not really know Gatsby, but the image he evoked, was of a materialistic man who would waste money on luxurious,

Moore suggests that by only choosing to televise violent stories the media has created a fear driven society. Moore conveys this through the collection of ludicrous media articles creating fear, such as “In an instant an escalator can mangle you or a loved one” Moore employs the sound of a rapid heart beat to metaphorically represent the fear in the american population. Moore undermines the views of the mass media and hyped blame culture through the use of montage displaying numerous media outlets blaming various external influences for the violence in America until they seem to reach the same conclusion; Marilyn Manson. The increasing speed in which the montage cuts between one clip to the next conveys the increasing hysteria of the American
Clearly, the intention behind the use of rhetoric distinguishes the quality of the journalist. In summary, it has been made clear after thorough analysis of Des Houghton's article, "Why does the Left support this avalanche of paedophile filth," that there exist journalists whose exact intentions are to conserve inequality and push the agendas of Rupert Murdoch under the façade of legitimate news.

This political movement has therefore, limits access to information relating to the issue to the public and media. Through the use of key satirical devices, particularly: caricature, symbolism, visual metaphors, analogy and captioning David Rowe has negatively displayed the Abbott Government’s apathetic attempt to drip feed Australians information of its asylum seeker stand-off with Indonesia.
It is important to be professional and clear when speaking to the media. It could ruin your reputation and make you look very bad. The media wants the best most scandalous stories they can get their hands on. If it’s a candidate running for president and they got their hands on one of the best scandals around, that candidate could lose publicity and it can definitely hurt the image of the candidate.
