  • In light of recent events concerning newscasters being lost in the fog ofmemory


  • it may be pertinent to ask: can we trust the news media?


  • For proclaimedpriest of postmodernismJean Baudrillard,


  • it isn't lack of access to information that renders the news meaningless,


  • it's the proliferation of images that makes it so untrustworthy.


  • Depending on where you get your news, you'll seeevidencethat climate change is a myth, or a serious problem.


  • Enough searching reveals that Paul McCartney is really dead,

    有相當多的資料顯示保羅麥卡尼 (披頭四成員) 已經死了 (但其實一直都只是傳言)

  • Stanley Kubrick faked the moon landing and 9-11 was an inside job.

    史丹利.庫柏力克 (美國導演) 偽造了登陸月球的畫面,以及 911 事件可能有內鬼

  • If you look hard enough you can find the contrapositive, underside, or opposite of any event.


  • These multiple interpretations don't make the world more accessible


  • the explosion of information, of events, makes the ability to understand the world nearly impossible.


  • The camera lens makes every image suspect. War is reduced to theatre, disease into telethon, hunger into magazine covers.


  • It makes the most atrocious events questionable

    它使最慘不忍睹的事情都顯得疑點重重 —

  • every image is possibly staged, recreated, simulated for a political end or to push a product.


  • There are hundreds of news channels all competing for viewers, followers, and hashtaggers.


  • Media and advertising operate on the same wavelength,


  • and as a result, the line between reality, marketing, and news is nearly impossible to discern.


  • Media outlets and advertisers compete to keep people glued to their couches,


  • perpetually titillated by the explosion of content on the screen.


  • It's the selling of a lifestyle, a promise of access to the truth, as something to produce meaning

    它所販賣的是一種生活方式、一個可以通曉真理的保證,並做為可以產生意義的事物 —

  • it's why reporters appear at the scene of crimes, embed themselves with military units during war,


  • and stand on the banks of oceans during hurricanesthe signs of disasters are images to be consumed.


  • While our lives may be utterly boring and meaningless


  • the nightly news reports that there are in fact places where things take place.


  • It sells the promise that meaningful things do happen.


  • They broadcast stories of actual events, but far from giving viewers access to the world,


  • the media creates a copy of an eventthey create non-events


  • Xerox copies of reality that are easily ingested by a society that has been trained to accept advertising, suggestion, and disinformation.


  • For Baudrillard, we're complicit in this disinformation campaign.


  • People willingly choose deceptionthe masses want to be tricked, fooled, and distracted from the reality of their lives.

    人們自願選擇被欺騙 — 他們想要被愚弄,並且從真實的生命中出走

  • Simply put: we prefer the copy of reality.


  • In the world of social media, we are no longer passive spectators.


  • We interact, create, and dictate newswe are the screen, the editor, reporter, and subscriber all at once.


  • So dearest viewer, if Sylvester Stallone is in the Boxing hall of fame as Rocky Balboa,

    所以親愛的觀眾,如果席維斯.史特龍和洛基 (由前者所飾演的電影角色) 同樣被列入拳擊名人堂,

  • and if people still believe the lie that wrestling is real how are we ever supposed to find out if Paul McCartney is alive?

    而且如果人們仍然相信「拳擊是真實的」這樣的謊言,我們怎麼可能知道保羅.麥卡尼到底是不是死了呢? (亦即閱聽者應該培養媒體識讀的能力)

  • Greetings, beloved viewer. And thanks again for watching 8-bit philosophy.
