In his world-famous bestseller 1984 George Orwell feared that the government will censor all news and media, only releasing news that are good for its reputation.
In my Opinion, the exact opposite is happening nowadays: We are getting flooded with information, so that nothing seems important anymore. Just think about it: A year ago, seemingly everyone was terribly upset about the oil-spill in the gulf of mexico, claiming it was one of the most dangerous natural disasters until then, and what then?
Right, everyone forgot about it.
Remember about 6 weeks ago?
Fukushima exploded, horrible atomic disasters, the end of the world as we know it.
And what are the important news today? The US managed to kill an old introverted man.
That seems so much more important than everything else happening nowadays.
All I want to say is, don't believe everything the media tells you.
Because they are just in it for the money.
