Good deeds opposing content

Good deeds? – Opposing Content

  • YouTube decentralized nature

  • Alternative clips appear side by side


Good deeds apache kills

Good deeds? – Apache Kills

  • Shows high power ammunition

  • Body part exploded

  • Shows wounded person

  • Propaganda relies on censorship

  • US soldiers uploading own clips disrupts this

  • YouTube, Google Video, didn’t exist

  • No alternative view

  • Easier to implement propaganda

Uploading dissonance

  • Propagandistic Dissonance

  • Realpolitik and noopolitik

    • Control over thought

    • “deliberate, regulated decontrol

    • Noopolitik may ultimately be about whose story wins 159

“Amateur Photojournalism and the Myth of the Media Democracy”


Question for the class

Question for the class

Is photojournalism dead?


Uploading dissonance

Yes?

Because:

  • Professional photojournalists push corporate agenda

  • Biased

  • Fake/staged images


But nemanic says no

But Nemanic says No…

  • Digital Divide

  • Photojournalism requires education, talent, experience

  • Professional images= superior quality

  • Photojournalist more willing to take risks for greater images

  • Civilian journalism is short lived—edges on sensationalism


G20 citizen perspective

G20 – citizen perspective

  • Grass roots – “ involving the common people”

    • Princeton Wordnet

  • Media democracy

  • Idea of authenticity
