Hegemonic agenda of media giants

5/18/09


These are two polls conducted by CNN to get viewers idea on two issues. I wonder, what could be the criteria they used to identify a cause or issue to do such a poll. For me, terrorist problem could decide my life or death, as a Sri Lankan. It seems, CNN is having same scale of interest in car selling statistics…

In post capitalist society, just like what we have today, media does the part which had been done by the warships and fighter planes did in past world wars. I think this is the most dangerous situation ever. Terrorism and Media seems to be two parallel instruments that the first world used to challenge the independence in other states.

Media not only attack people but mentally disables people. CNN like media could control the minds of the world to ignore the Rwandan Genocide, but to cry for the WTC attack in US.

I got below e-mail that explains the duty of media today; It is quite true and funny;

A man sees a woman getting chased by a dog.
When the dog is about to bite the woman, the man intervenes and kicks the dog.
A reporter was seeing all this.
He said "That was great. I'll definitely publish this in newspaper.
Tomorrow the headline will be 'LOCAL HERO SAVES LADY FROM A DOG'."
The man replied "Thank you, but I'm not from here. I am from US".
Reporter " OK.
Then the headline will be US CITIZEN SAVES WOMAN FROM A DOG".
Man: Actually, I live in US but I'm not a US citizen. I'm a Pakistani national".
Next day, the headline in the paper read ....
