“Distorting and manipulating public opinion through the media” a lecture by Ana-Maria Nistor at PAVILION center
On October 11, 2012, PAVILION center held a lecture by Ana-Maria Nistor, under the title Distorting and manipulating public opinion through the media.
About our everyday virus, in a humorous manner.
All the press has written about the harmful effects and the distortion of the general point of view… in the press. It is common sense to have knowledge of the horizontality of values and the rude manipulation nowadays, in the sick hunger for sensational. There are literally possibilities for writing anatomical studies upon the spine of those who form the average men’s opinion. The interest fells not on what they actually do, but how they reach the final result.
My proposition for you is neither an academic lecture, nor a tasteless theory, but a journey amongst mass-media’s most attractive sights: a five version news, the tabloid tendency, demystification and the power of nothingness, so-called leaders and anti-leaders, the show of anonymity, the hyper-naturalism and voyeurism of press, men and women’s strategy of manipulating the public point of view. A funny chat about the most important of powers in one’s home: “documented information” and how it modifies us either we like it or not.
