I was reading earlier today an article about a very fat Egyptian lady “Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty” that underwent a weight loss program, and was said to have lost more than 400 pounds.
The article was about how the lady got paralyzed, and in the article her sister is saying how the Indian hospital and doctor were exaggerating the numbers just for publicity, and in reality she only lost a fraction of the weight.
The article goes in details about what a bad experience it was, and how it was life threatening, and how the lady went into comas several times.
The funny thing, is that this news outlet have been writing a lot about this specific lady, before she got paralyzed. And now you realize that all previous articles were bull$hit.
They say the media lies, but does it really ? Or simply, it is manipulated, and accept manipulation for the sake of viewers and readers ?
Another article caught my attention, emphasizing money donated by a country A for the reconstruction of country B, while country A have been actively waging war on certain community in country B and effectively have the prime role in the destruction caused.
Then today, i watched a funny Quebecois film “Votez Bougon”
It is basically ends on a note of the relation between power and press …
So at the end of the day, between power influence and manipulation, most of the news are lies are sheep manipulation.
