Astroturf and manipulation of media messages | Sharyl Attkisson | TEDxUniversityofNevada

Оценок: 12925 | Просмотров: 996084
In this eye-opening talk, veteran investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson shows how astroturf, or fake grassroots movements funded by political, corporate, or other special interests very effectively manipulate and distort media messages. Sharyl Attkisson is an investigative journalist based in Washington D.C. She is currently writing a book entitled Stonewalled (Harper Collins), which addresses the unseen influences of corporations and special interests on the information and images the public receives every day in the news and elsewhere. For twenty years (through March 2014), Attkisson was a correspondent for CBS News. In 2013, she received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism for her reporting on “The Business of Congress,” which included an undercover investigation into fundraising by Republican freshmen. She also received Emmy nominations in 2013 for Benghazi: Dying for Security and Green Energy Going Red. Additionally, Attkisson received a 2013 Daytime Emmy Award as part of the CBS Sunday Morning team’s entry for Outstanding Morning Program for her report: “Washington Lobbying: K-Street Behind Closed Doors.” In September 2012, Attkisson also received an Emmy for Oustanding Investigative Journalism for the “Gunwalker: Fast and Furious” story. She received the RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Investigative Reporting for the same story. Attkisson received an Investigative Emmy Award in 2009 for her exclusive investigations into TARP and the bank bailout. She received an Investigative Emmy Award in 2002 for her series of exclusive reports about mismanagement at the Red Cross. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

"A Truman-esque alternative reality all around you" You hit the hammer on the nail with that one. By paying off all the sites that come up on google searches, ie WebMD, Wikipedia and even the Doctor who you found out went to a medical event to explain how a certain medication works, because lets be realistic doctors don't do their own testing of anything they just repeat what they are told and send you on your way with your new prescription... scientists are bought and paid for, scientists are the only ones that can actually do the tests but most are bought off or shunned as lunatics ie Tesla

Could this all be random? Or is there a central Leftist organization which is orchestrating it all? It's not at all happenstance. Nor is it just the Demmunists. It is, absolutely, a COUP. It's that nebulous, mysterious"NWO"....which, in reality, is the Bilderbergs. Member: George Soros. They ("intellectual elite" as they like to refer to themselves) have been plotting to rule the world for 70 years. Doubts? In early June of election year 2008 they had their secretive annual meeting [military-like security] just outside of WashDC. On the 8th they had 2 "guests": Barack and Hillary. The next day Hillary withdrew from her, as usual, vitriolic campaign and began supporting Barrack.

Clem Kadiddlehopper (1 месяц назад)
Sharyl is correct that we should have a healthy level of skepticism when reading someone's reporting. She is also correct on a number of other areas she addresses here. She tends to lean a bit to the right, herself, as evidenced by some of her articles. I have to wonder if she is pandering to some of her 'base' readers when she takes a fairly 'hard-right' stance on an issue she writes about. Such is 'freedom of the press' in this country.

Never trust sites like Wikipedia. Anonymously updated site. They even have bad writers here, who can't write proper Finnish language. Try to edit them, page is blocked, or whole network is blocked - like mobile networks.

Thank you! - I can not agree with your comments on astroturf wikipedia! I have had the same experience as I AM NOT ALLOWED to update information on me - nor ask to take down my page .... as "they don't know it is me" .... Wikipedia unfortunately is linked to many software editing products .... not surprising.

Hilarious : This talk was mentioned, as it should, in Wikipedia article on Attkisson... it was immediately removed, thereby confirming what she says. Here is the entry removed from Wikipedia: In February 2015, Attkisson gave a TED talk at the University of Nevada. In the talk, she said that astroturfing was swaying public opinion, legislation and media outlets. In that talk she specifically cited Wikipedia as a wholly untrustworthy source pointing out, what all of us who edit on Wikipedia know, that wikipedia is under the control of a liberal cabal that makes sure their left wing narrative is advanced. Of course, you'll never see this as the liberal cabal at wikipedia will reverse this contribution in not seconds, but nanoseconds. You can find it by checking the "History" tab that compile all entries and corrections for each Wiki article.
BmoreNasty (3 месяца назад)
That was taken down because it violates multiple wikipedia policies, like editorializing and half of it you just made up. I'm sure you could get this much to stick if you added a source: " February 2015, Attkisson gave a TED talk at the University of Nevada. In the talk, she said that astroturfing was swaying public opinion, legislation and media outlets. In that talk she specifically cited Wikipedia as an untrustworthy source... [something something about 90% of medical information being wrong]".

Ms. Attkisson points out everyone's hypocrisy but her own. Is her reporting completely without bias? I doubt it. Me Attkisson was with CBS for almost two decades and never became a star, she's bitter and she wants to get even.

Why do you a full grown woman wear a skirt half way up your thigh? It is seen as a way you want to fit in with a style that makes women look foolish to flaunt your body, for what reason? You are appearing professionally and does not make you look more credible. Watch what you buy into. Wonder the view of people in front rows. Sorry but I am A person who thinks people need to see what conflicts they are unaware of. A bit of sheeple in everyone. Otherwise your talk was terrific and appreciated.

Anecdotally, I was looking for info on J. Stalin recently and Wikipedia claims he was "only" "personally" responsible for one million deaths and "only" about three million because of negligence, not including deaths by famine which were "only" around 5.5 -6.5 million.

Best example of astroturfing: The cannabis/"marijuana" community. No one needs to defend a plant that turns you into hormonally drunken hippie for 4-6 hours. A plant that 85% of people age 14-20 or older have tried. No city dweller or suburbanite has ever needed to waste time attacking people over pot. Yet look online. You'd think humanity is pro-pot to the point of a civil war against prohibition. Yet not only do most people not care, most people actually don't personally support ending the drug war and are indifferent to prohbition and recreational legalization alike.
Dennis R. Levesque (7 месяцев назад)
That was well said. Serious and honest reality-checks are needed. And identifying when/where is important. I liked the the use of "AstroTurf". It says a lot. However, as a science buff myself, I do find that sometimes, well engineered man-mades are more functional than some natural forms. When doing your own reality check, you should be careful to not let any of your own personal biases affect the evaluation of the quality of the thing itself, regardless of how it was publicized. You might just find out that you really DO prefer astroturf over natural grass, after all. But then again, you might not. I'm just saying to be careful about it, and really be honest about it. After all, that's what a reality check is all about.
