Whilst doing some research for something completely different I was led to this web site named
and it presented the video shown in the
As you will see and hear, this video was recorded on various mediums in relation to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
I am yet to see the entire video as it is 1 hour and 40 mins long but what I have seen is very interesting... Just the title opens up a can of worms
as I'm sure that there are many here who would have so much to say in regards to a debate such as this.
Some of you will be sitting there seething at what some say in the debate, others will agree.
There are always those who are for or against and this is a prime example of such.
On the page of the video you will be able to choose to watch parts of the video or the full amount in one go. The way this site has brokenm the vid
down and posted in sections is a breakthrough that many other sites don't offer.
When it comes to the debates results, I could not help but laugh when the presenter starts by saying .. "Strewth"!!
We all have our opinion of the media and we discuss it here many many times yet it is refreshing to see something like this discussed by those in
related fields and voted upon by a live audience.
I'll let you be the judge
As for my own opinion, we are fed certain amounts of truth, certain amounts of sensational items to get us brewed up, other bits to desensitise us,
others to make us feel emotions to remind us we are Human. It is obviously a game the media plays and I would not be at all surprised if basic and
complex psychology is used in the presentation of media items.
