The news in Europe and the United States is very varied. If you believe in it, it is estimated that people will be mad. Why is this happening? How should we treat these news reports?
First, you have to have a few common sense:
First, the news media in Europe and the United States are free to report, not subject to government or political party control and constraints, and what news can attract people and expand subscribers.
Second, Europe and the United States have serious and rigorous and credible news media, as well as gossip and untrustworthy news media. “Dog bites are not news, people bite dogs is news” is the original editorial director of the “New York Sun”, John Bogart said, this is the purpose of the European and American gossip newspapers. The New York Sun and the British Sun are typical gossip newspapers. Serious and rigorous newspapers do not use this as a principle.
Third, the same issue will have different interpretations. The media will make its own interpretations based on its own political position, value orientation, and audience.
Understand this common sense, you know that the most important thing when looking at US news reports is identification.
This is very boring and boring, and it is not easy for everyone to understand. Let’s take a few examples.
A few years ago, the news media reported that Foxconn was a blood and tear factory. This accusation is very strict and the consequences are very serious. If it is really identified as a blood and tear factory, European and American companies will not dare to cooperate and trade with Foxconn in any form. Foxconn will also face relevant laws.
Foxconn sued the media for this and saved the reputation of the company.
Afterward, they learned from the media that they were getting news from a British newspaper, and this newspaper was a gossip newspaper.
The report of “21st Century Business Herald” triggered heated discussion in the international media. The “New York Times” of the United States specifically reported on the truth of the incident.
For another example, the US military invaded Iraq. The scenes of Bai Zuo Media are all the ruins of the rotten, the poor people, the revenge of the terrorists, etc., accusing the US invasion of bringing disaster to Iraq. In the lens of the White Right Media, the Iraqi people smiled and welcomed the US military, the US military, and the Iraqi children to play and play. They were happy and eloquent, praising the peace and light that the US military invaded brought to Iraq.
For example, when Trump and Mrs. Clinton campaigned, the American media fell to support Mrs. Clinton and thought she won. After the election of Trump, the Democratic Party-led “TongRumen” investigation was also widely supported by the media. He did not hesitate to create fake news to discredit Trump. As a result, Trump was elected, and the independent prosecutor’s “TongRumen” investigation also confirmed Trump’s clean.
Without discrimination, blindly following the European and American media, blindly choose the news that suits your needs to play, it is to fool others, and finally, they will make jokes.
See what the US military has brought to Iraq. It depends on whether the Iraqi economy and society are progressing or regressing compared with the past.
Seeing whether Trump has lost the trust of Americans depends on Trump’s achievements and the people’s support for him. Just watching the media’s report on Trump will make this guy so bad that the American people will be stupid enough to make a bad guy a president and have always supported this bad guy?
Recently, Brexit has become the focus of media attention. There are millions of people demonstrating against Brexit and demanding a second referendum. Experts have begun to obscenity.
There are many problems in the Brexit, and there are many difficulties. But things are not over yet. Whether Mei Lan can win a vote in the House of Commons and whether the House of Commons can come up with a new Brexit plan is unknown.
There are more than 6,300 people in the UK. What can be explained by the demonstration of 1 million people? The referendum is not a child’s play. Britain will never hold a second referendum. The worst result is that Mei Lan resigns, or advances in general elections. In any case, the Conservative Party-led Brexit will be realized.
In fact, the European and American media are very strange to us. There are almost no conditions for identification. I just want to tell you that when you encounter such news, you should be too easy to be fooled.
