Media Manipulation For The Rest Of Us

I recently received the Spring 2005 Catalog from Best Buy. The teaser text for the photo editing software had this tagline:
"Load photo editing software onto your PC to remove red-eye, create captions and crop out the unwanted stuff. Make the moment look perfect - even if it wasn't."
In other words, change the image to fit the story you want to tell not the story as-is. What the mainstream media has been doing for years - manipulating images and news stories to fit an agenda - now any average Joe or Jane can do on their laptop computer.

Er, rich above seems to be a comment spammer. What I wanted to say was more relevent. I was a regular attendee at vigils for Gush Shalom in Israel. Sometime, when the news was slow the local CNN guy used to turn up with a camera crew. They would never, ever shoot while we were doing our thing. They would wait until we were done, then get us to gather together to make a background for a 'piece to camera'. I refused to join in what I thought was news creation rather than reporting. Jerrold Kessel used to shrug and say "That's what the editor wants".

I got your address from an article in the London Guardian and took a look at your site. Pretty good stuff you post. http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/0,12271,1593857,00.html#article_continue

I also use the Bible as my reference in posting even though some might not think so. I’d like permission to link on my sidebar to your site, if that’s OK? You can find me at http://stopandthinkforaminute.blogspot.com/.

email gj_co2001@yahoo.com

I have to admit to jealousy for you getting the publicity in London. I wish someone would pick up my blog in that manner.

Hey TexasTommy, you have a great blog here. Media Manipulation For The Rest Of Us caught my eye and I thought I would put a post on it. I'm looking for help.

The site I have is a work from home site. Its all about, need I say it, working from home. I think people should have the choice to build their own income instead of somebody else’s. Freedom of well being and all of that...anyway I was on your site looking for ways to help my business. I'm really looking for ways of building better rapport between recruits.

Anyways TexasTommy thanks for the great blog. I'll just have to carry on my search till I find what I'm looking for. Take care.

Hi Travis Fell, There are not too many good niche related sites that aren't full of junk posts, search engine scraping and except for keyword stuffing, nothing useful related to niche. It was nice to find an exception today when I happened upon your site. Keep it going.

Greetings Travis Fell, you have a pretty cool blog here. I was searching for work from home in the uk. I just started my home business and you can see it at this link - work from home in the uk. Your post title caught my eye - Media Manipulation For The Rest Of Us. I'm just looking for tips on how to be a better mentor. I know that’s not what you’re going on about in this post but I am trying to expand my vocabulary phrases so I can talk to many different personalities. I mean I have to talk to a lot of people and I need to be able to connect with everyone.

Anyways Travis Fell, this helped. Keep it up, I'll be back.
