This is exactly what the media is doing!
Snakes eat fish, so this is a story of nature! The facts are that the snake caught a fish, we assume, we expect the snake to eat the fish but from this picture we don’t know if the snake at the fish!
Reporting the facts from a photo is difficult, where did the reporter get the fact that the snake was brave? Was the snake brace? We don’t know, but by identifying the snake as brave the reporter sets the tone for the report. The snake takes on the role of the hero.
The reporter says that the fish was drowning, the snake “saved” the fish from drowning, reinforcing the role of hero that the reporter assigned to the snake!
The reporter took a photo of a natural occurrence and transformed the snake into the hero! The victims in this story is story are us, the readers! Our trust and confidence in the media to keep us informed have allowed us to be fooled by reporters with their own agenda.
Snakes catch and eat fish! That’s a natural event, the reporter has caused us to believe the snake is the hero in this picture!
We trust the reporter to tell us the truth! We trust the reporter to keep us informed! We trust that the reporter won’t manipulate us and feed us thief version of the facts to guide our thinking and beliefs!
Think about this when we watch the news or read a newspaper!
Trump will still win big!
