I took a survey of films class, to fulfill a general requirement, and in that class I learned some things about how directors use camera angles, different types of lenses, and the actors positions in the seen to let the viewers see what the director wants them to see. Thus making the audience think and believe what the director wants them to think and believe.
As I watch the news, I see things that are happening throughout the world and also right here in the United States. I see a sixty minutes broadcast turn up papers on the president of the United States of American that basically says he tried to dodge the war in Vietnam, going against many things that he stands for and basically depicting him as a coward. After further investigation that turned out to be false and those papers were not authentic. We all know that the news, just like any other television program requires viewers. If there was no viewers there would be no television. Do we really know how much the news is "fudged", just a little, to get the latest breaking news?
