SOME NEWSPAPERS REALLY SHOW THE REALITY?

Post by ArnauEstanyol » Wed Feb 02, 2011 10:59 am

In today's edition of Financial Times appears a news relative to Catalan's debt:
Headline: "CATALAN CREDIT CRUNCH THREATENS TO UNDERMINE SPAIN'S EFFORT"
It's true that Catalonia has a credit debt of 10.000 million Euro. But this is not the completely reality. Catalonia is submitted by Spain to a fiscal deficit of 22.000 millions Euro per year. A really shame that is unmatched in any country in the world. With these money that takes off from Catalonia, Spain constructs big airports and wide freeways where you can make a camping because the freeways are used by three cars per hour... Yes, airports like Ciudad Real's airport (the city has 70000 inhabitants) with one four kilometres long airstrip, a facilities with capacity for two million passengers / year and a cost of 1100 millions Euro that is used by three aircraft per week of a company with deficit and subsidized by the State.
The reality is that Spain don't be able to manage the money that STOLE from Catalonia. And you know: the money you has earned with your effort don't has the same valour than the money you has easily won.

Why some newspapers don't show all reality. Only a part and no the whole reality?

Do you agree? what's your opinion?

the answer is very simple: the political and economical pressures can change, distort, alter and hide events and facts.
the media is effected by these pressures and tends to create a general impression of any circumstance according to what goes with them.
may be the only true news are the sports ones!

"Reality" is such a subjective thing. News reporting, like history, requires people to leave a lot of the information out in any story. It requires people to be selective. And what they select to say is filtered by what they think is important. Everybody has their own opinion about what is important, so someone can always say that the report isn't really the truth...

Indeed ''the truth'' as Journalists say has many perspectives; thus I trust only big popular and accountable newspapers when it comes to reading the truth.
