SOME NEWSPAPERS REALLY SHOW THE REALITY?

Postby 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.

Of course newspapers never tell things 100% as they are, especially those controlled by political powers, and even more especially Spanish newspapers concerning Catalonia. You know that, Arnau. It's a shame and the world should know.

Merry Christmas to you too Elisa! As you may know we Russians have it twice as likely as Europeans, so our alpine huts have to be cleaned up twice, too. Now, that's what really annoys me!

I know that Russian Orthodox church still lives according to old Julian Calendar and celebrates Christmas on 7th January. I didn't know Russian people celebrate it twice.
I hoped you were free the 25th and one of St.Claus's reindeer. I would have had some "advantages". It's a pity, you were in a alpine hut... :-(
Be good if you don't want to receive some coal {-;

Elisa, how come that some of your comments (like this one) are so difficult to respond at?
You better tell me what's up with the links you're dropping here and there. Is it your clips"?

Happy new year coming very close

I think you are right. I follow my mind and thoughts and I write as everybody could understand them.
Forgive me. I know this isn't the right place but I attach this poem for you and for all EClearners.

HAPPY NEW YEAR WITH THESE wise words about time, and the use we make of it...the beautiful poem is by Elli Michler:

I wish you time -
"I don't wish you all sort of gifts.
I just wish you what most people don't have:
I wish you the time to be happy and to laugh
and if you use it, you can make something out of it.
I wish you the time for your doings and thinking,
not only for yourself, but also to give away to others.
I wish you the time - not to hustle and run
but the time to be contented.
I wish you the time, not to pass just like that
I wish that some of it may be left for you
as a time to marvel and trust
instead of just looking at the time on your watch.
I wish you the time to reach for the stars
and the time to grow, to mature
I wish you the time to hope and to love
There is no sense in putting this time off.
I wish you the time to find yourself to see happiness in each day and each hour.I wish you the time also to forgive. I wish you the time to live."
