I have been learning in one of my other classes about how the news media stages certain events. It is mainly the public relation campaigns of affluential people who are behind this staging. One of the most popular staged events was of course President George W. Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech. Staged Media really intrigues me because it makes me realize just how powerful P.R. is and how these people can make us believe whatever they wish. I would never think that during Bush’s speech, the civilians standing so perfectly behind him were trained before the speech was publicly aired. We really need to realize that not all of what we see on the news is what it seems to be and start watching and reading everything with a critical eye.
