Media, Spiritual Gateway By Dr. Alan Pateman & Dr. Jennifer Pateman
eBook (ePub): $3.52
Let’s face it; we live in the era of fake news! It’s always existed, but never been quite so prominent. Today it’s an all-out-war between fact and political fiction. The media has... More > been sabotaged by political activism. Gone are the days of impartiality and objective unbiased reporting, with many sources saying that true journalism is dead.

The New, the Old and the Media of the Future By Ida Hiršenfelder
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Media art curator and critic Ida Hiršenfelder writes about Antoine Schmitt’s project Time Slip and his main past and recent works. Time Slip is a LED news ticker operating in real time:... More > a computer software transcribes official online news released by news agencies, changing the past tense to the future tense. In doing this, it constructs an ambiguous relation between the present, the past and the potential by displaying a continuous streaming of “new” news. Time Slip raises an issue that is central in Antoine Schmitt’s work, i.e. the relation between cause, effect, randomness and free will: reading news about facts that have already happened disallows the audience’s ability to be active about them; whereas, oppositely, reading news about the future raises anxiety and shows how the mass media proceed to produce submissive citizens, as opposed to informing them.< Less

Paper 1 ‘Terrorist Reporting in the Swedish Media: Reinforcing an Oriental/Occidental Division?’ was prepared by Therese Rudebeck during an internship at the CSRP in 2011. The paper is of...
