English, Frontline Telling The Truth Question: Our Access To The Truth Is Impeded By The Powerful. Show How Your Study Of The Text And Additional Material Demonstrates This Assertion

1080 words - 5 pages

The statement, " Our access to the truth is impeded by the powerful", is truthful, as the main way citizens find out about current affairs, is through various medias, all owned by the most wealthiest and powerful individuals in the world, an example of one of these individuals in Australia, being Mr Murdoch. The accuracy of this statement is established throughout the 'Frontline' series, created by D-Generation, in particular, the episodes 'The Night of Nights' and 'Smaller Fish to Fry'. Other examples found in the media, which demonstrate this statement include; 'The Student Protests' and The Simpson's episode,'.......'. In the 'Frontline' episode, 'The Night of Nights', Mike Mo ...view middle of the document...

The former being achieved through close ups of facial expressions and a range of different camera shots, to generate drama. The latter is so, as the employees we allow to handle our truth believe, that their audience, are merely semi-intelligent followers, who will sit and swallow, when spoon-fed a story that looks, "pretty".To the same degree, the media can also manipulate images, in order to present the story they wish. This technique of manipulation is evident in a news story, from early 2003, regarding the student protests against the war in Iraq, taking place in George Street, Sydney. The story aired to the Australian public, was centralised on the brutality of the approximately ten thousand students towards the poor, hard-working, police officers. However, one attending this protest would have seen a dissimilar series of events, a different side to the story, which a powerful force, would have stopped being aired. At the protest there were students acting violently, but this was simply an act of retaliation, due to the force of the police. Pushing, hitting protestors, even pulling off a Muslim girls scarf all part of their days work. Yet, these facts, were never aired. Clearly, because the New South Wales police force is more powerful, than a group of "silly" school students. The outcome of this, the majority of Australian citizens not knowing the other side of the story, led to feel sympathy for the police officers and hatred towards the protestors. Thus, the truth has once again been 'impeded' by a powerful force. 'Smaller Fish to Fry', another 'Frontline' episode, also reveals this. In this instalment, a story that could change the viewer's lives and save them from a scam, is again not presented, since it could damage the network. Co-incidentally, at the same time Mike Moore uncovers the facts of this scam and applies for airtime, mysterious false sex allegations against him arise. Although, this is clearly not a co-incidence, rathe...
