Can You Believe What You See in the Boston Globe?

The short answer? No.

"The study, to be published in the journal Psychological Science, is just the latest evidence of how our attitudes influence our perception. The camera does not lie, but our minds may….

Only if you "believe," right? (Btw, I am perfectly comfortable saying I don't know).

Except the camera does in fact lie, be it 9/11Sandy Hook, the Boston Marathon bombingsor chemical weapons use in Syria. Even the fireworks are faked!

Of course, it is all for the greater good, right?

I guess she is right because my media got it wrong.

"The New York Times redesigned website contain[s] a platform featuring content paid for by advertisers. Such content, known as “native advertising,” has raised concerns among some journalists that it could blur the lines between the editorial product and material provided by advertisers. In a letter to employees last month, however, The Times’s publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., promised that native ads will be clearly distinguished as paid posts and that the content would not be produced by newsroom employees." 

That made me laugh because it already is a propaganda pre$$!!
