Perhaps a new angle on the term ‘News Blackout’.
Social commentary Work on how personal worlds are becoming ever-more colored and darkened when looking out from the inside – blinded to the light – by habitual daily mainstream media news consumption from biased and agenda-ridden reporting in the hard press.
The reverse applies looking in from the outside, the masses blinded to the real world and instead ever more rooted in their opinions the more newspaper & magazine “Infotainment” grabs hold, holds sway, as their reality.
The antidote, thankfully, is to hand in the form of the internet and social media, where the full spectrum of opinion is more or less freely expressed and the individual has a vast pool of information from which to form an educated individual opinion.. and cast his / her vote from a much more enlightend stance
