If you have never part of a great event in a big city, you should know that there is nothing like that. Surrounded by people with whom you share at least one urgent thinking moves through the central artery of a metropolis where the regular and the entertainment business have planned intentionally disturbed by an outburst of discomfort, indignation, idealism. Marching in a demonstration makes familiar sights strangely full opportunity, but also potentially dangerous. Spend enough track of time in a crowd, and you lose where it begins and where it ends; covered road signs, look at the building across the street for signs of towering where you really are. Read dozens of posters made in the house, some of which are related grieved, for one reason or another, and strike up friendships with fugitive who is always mixed randomly on your side. Sometimes you can not see the cause of a commotion, and it’s scary. Sometimes you feel bored, uncomfortable, aching, exhausted, claustrophobic. Sometimes the experience is transcendent. Also the video-watching protests on the live game feed-through is to be a poor substitute for excess sensory stimulation from there. The shaky, oily amateur clips that circulated on social media probably come closer, so that we see through the eyes of a particular subscriber; Be the limits of their important perspective as what they actually experience. News Footage filmed by professional camera crews from points of view that are often inaccessible to people on earth, has a high degree of removal. But to look like millions of people, the protests that Derek Chauvin unfair in the hands of the Minneapolis police officers following the death of George Floyd broke the other three officers looked on. Continue to draw huge audiences and cable broadcast messages that have flourished in all their pandemic crown coverage of the riots. the audience sees and what is very different depending on where they get their news. Like many Americans, I was glued to the screens in recent weeks, sometimes watching Twitter or Instagram video of the events on my phone, I see news channels, the same scene from a different angle on the TV coverage. By now most of us have some knowledge of what distinguishes the major networks sober, carefully neutral program, the liberal spin on MSNBC, the conservative tilt Fox News and the flood of graphic experts and assumes that the CNN is. It is no surprise that almost every evening news anchor just-the-facts-accounts of the protests has passed between; The reports of police brutality against demonstrators; Handshakes about looters; bring products concern for public meetings in light of the expressed pandemic; and human interest stories, in which blacks and men in blue hug, listen to each other, marching hand in hand. I should wait no eyebrows at Fox News host raised rant on Wednesday, under the heading “attacks on police Amid Nationwide riots”, while CNN announced “major protests in DC repressed curfew Tonight” and read the MSNBC Chyron ” tonight peaceful protests in US cities: “We know that every output frame, if it does not select, consciously or unconsciously, the stories or their respective obliquely or in the house of the neutral desire to fit. What we are talking about less is the appearance that these stories-the ones that accompany, in the case of protest materials often with the voices of the host or guest experts, who juxtaposed the specification or pictures can not see we can discuss on screen. This, too, is carefully selected. It can be said, because it is so different from one channel to another. Most of the material air protest news nationally from two main angles direct. They are the blows to the head stunning crowds in Minneapolis, New York, Los Angeles, DC, and beyond that to establish a sense of scale demonstrations. MSNBC and CNN (which has since the protests began in late May, has taken a leading role in the news channel away in demography lead 25-54 for the first time in 19 years) they tend to use it as a background for monologues and discussions sometimes split-screen or mesh that give a view of several cities at once. They also provide one or more camera crews among the protesters; get viewers to read the signs, recognize the different demographics, notes the peaceful atmosphere in general. There is usually a reporter on the scene, as well as for sharing impressions and conversations with activists. On Tuesday, in what was undoubtedly the quintessential moment MSNBC this week I took a protester booed Correspondent Katy Tur to mention looting and admitted that he is right, the media’s fascination with this aspect of recent events Criticism. It was the moment par excellence Fox News did not come until Wednesday, during which the network devoted much of his 07:00 Rod Rosenstein Senate testimony during an autopsy on the Russian probe dissection; expressing frustration that the fatal shooting of a police captain black board Monday, David Dorn, not the same nerve was touched by tearing the video of Floyd’s death; and litigation Andrew Cuomo critical of the NYPD. During an interview segment unrelated to the story with Martha MacCallum, a camera approached trained on a DC protest, someone a sign “No more blacks bodies,” he said, then suddenly began swung from left to right, as if in a frenzy. In a few seconds, the power cut. MacCallum and their guests filled the screen away. For the most part, Fox News America beliebtestenes Cable News Network and one that, according to Nielsen, an unusually large audience of 4 million of its live coverage of the protests on Saturday, May strokes and environmental quantities avoided 30 prospects have attracted favor of its competitors. Although the network has placed correspondents in the cities where the protests take place, tend to report from places where there are relatively few activists scattered over the site of Floyd’s death, a window with broken glass. Often, a split screen shows movies is non-live of looting. If the cameras that capture protests DIY, is often made on the back of a police line, put the public in their shoes. From this point of view, you do not see their weapons or plastic shields strapped to his chest. More than once I saw a long close-up of a black policeman. As the time showed MacCallum, Fox News often makes it readable characters to talk to the protesters his viewers or attempts. The black message Screw Matter, and the wide, for the most part peaceful nature of the quota support mounted, it remains hidden. TV movies will never be the experience of attending a protest in all its intensity and confusion. It is not easy, either for enough races controversy in America during these moments show a polarized with lives on the line and white supremacy on the rise, at the same time as anti-racist movements to win popular support. The central point of the political spectrum do not always line up with the most objective assessment of the situation. Reporter arrested was when CNN Omar Jimenez, and violated by the police in an attack unprecedented protests of press freedom. Other journalists who increased risks since the recent events in good coverage faith, screwed up to criticism. (View of the turmoil in the New York Times this week about an editorial by Senator Tom Cotton, the reading of his own in the newspaper office as incitement to state-sponsored violence too.) Central CNN Atlanta has become a reference point for demonstrators. Rethinking old standards is not only healthy, but necessary. But it is not just words or opinions in general that can manipulate and deceive. Visuals, difficult to collect separately during, can be equally effective. And as a television news producer surely realize they have for propaganda purposes can not be manipulated to serve. It ‘important to be aware of when we are the picture can not be seen, and ask why. If the protest is collected should have a crowd of thousands do not look at the audience get what it looks like, read the characters, feel the mood of the crowd? When it comes to how we understand right now, are some of the most important pictures of which many of us do not see.
