How the media can manipulate our perceptions

nick sandmannIn light of the recent media hubbub around Nick Sandmann, who in case you don’t know, is the young man with the smarmy smile in the picture featured to the right, I can’t help but be reminded of the little picture below.  It describes perfectly the way the media has acted on the whole ordeal.

Is Nick a racist or just someone who was smiling at the wrong time?  You can do your own research and come to your own conclusion without being spoon fed by me – but the important part is to actually do your own research and not just blindly swallowing the outrage provoking soundbites the media seem to love to dish out nowadays for a quick view.
