How NOT To Spot Fake News

Fake news is even thought to have played a meaningful part the outcome of the the 2016 American presidential election. WE … are gonna do something different. We’re not gonna talk about how to spot fake news. We’re gonna talk about about how NOT to spot fake news, about how certain news items can seem suspect... but not all blemishes make their stories necessarily fake. We’re gonna talk about what ISN’T fake news by using Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman’s book Manufacturing Consent, as our guide. If you’re unfamiliar, these gents argue that newsmedia can function in subtle, even unmeaning ways to get people to agree with the news source, and one another, on the issues of the day and political or economic positions which largely... benefit the powerful. They call this ability the news media’s “propaganda function”, and they claim it’s built into the very structure of media itself, even media which you’d never point at and go “HEY! THAT’S A PROPAGANDA!” So follow along with us with our handy guide on how NOT to spot fake news. --COMMENT RESPONSES TO LAST WEEK’S EPISODE-- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5F93WxDOlqk --TWEET OF THE WEEK-- https://twitter.com/silnan/status/833672482951397376 --FURTHER READING & SOURCES-- http://bit.ly/2rO1qzr http://bit.ly/2siMDAg http://bit.ly/2rNRJRu --ASSET LINKS-- 00:25 Social Media and Fake News in the 2016 Election http://stanford.io/2sjaS1k 00:34 The Guardian Article http://bit.ly/2rO1qzr 00:35 Cyborgology Article http://bit.ly/2siMDAg 00:38 On The Media Handbook http://bit.ly/2rNRJRu 3:26 The Young Turks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cg-Silt4JJw 3:44 Bias?

GlobalMedia: Sam Keen, 9/11, War and Metaphor - Part 2/2 (W16-P2) [VID] Sp17



So, dehumanization of the enemy was done in the past all over the world.  Does it still happen in the 21st century?  That's the question that my co-author and I asked in our study of editorial cartoons of bin Laden and the Taliban after the events of 9/11.

Hart, W. B. & Hassencahl, F. (2002). Dehumanizing the enemy in editorial cartoons. In B. Greenberg (Ed.). Communication and Terrorism: Public and Media Responses to 9/11 (pp. 137-155). Cresskill, NJ: Hampton Press.



In short, our study found that people (U.S. leaders and editorial cartoonist, in this case) continued to use the dehumanizing visual metaphors identified by Keen -- enemy-as-animal, enemy-as-barbarian, enemy-as-criminal, etc.

























We closed our book chapter with the following important note.























Does this process of dehumanization continue today?  Let's check the news.

"The 'right' to dehumanize and humiliate [Turkey's]Erdo─čan"? (2016)

"Do Not Dehumanize Muslims and Liken Them to Dangerous Animals" (2016)

‘Blame Russia’ media blitz aims to dehumanize and demonize - RT (2017)

GlobalMedia: Sam Keen, 9/11, War and Metaphor - Part 1/2 (W16-P1) [VID] Sp17





Why is it that during times of war people see the enemy of as animals, as monsters, as barbarians, as devil or death?  Put differently, why do people dehumanize the enemy?  What purpose does it serve?

Social psychologist Sam Keen offers some answers in his book and a doc based on the book.  Here's the beginning of the doc.  I'd encourage you to see the rest.



How do we dehumanize?  Why do we dehumanize?  Why do we make the enemy less than human?

According to Keen, there are a dozen or so common ways that the enemy is seen.
  • Enemy-as-Animal, 
  • Enemy-as-Barbarian, 
  • Enemy-as-Death, 
  • Enemy-as-Enemy-of-God, 
  • Enemy-as-Criminal, 
  • Enemy-as-All-the-Same
  • etc.

Keen argues that the enemy is dehumanized because it justifies the killing of the enemy. If the enemy is not a civilized human like us, then, according to Keen, the guilt associated with killing then enemy is greatly lessened and killing is easier.


Faces of the Enemy: Reflections of the Hostile Imagination : The Psychology of Enmity by Sam Keen









During World War II the Nazis dehumanized Jewish people. Notice the dehumanization of Jewish people in the Nazi propaganda film called the "Eternal Jews".  Watch at least the first five minutes of the film.  What was the purpose of this dehumanization of Jewish people?

Just in a 5 minute clip from about 13:45 to 18:37, what dehumanizing metaphors are used?




If you are interested, for more a detailed study of the dehumanizing metaphors used in The Eternal Jew, see:
Hassencahl F. & Hart, W. B. (March, 2013). A fantasy-theme analysis of Der Ewige Jude (The Eternal Jew): From WWII Nazi propaganda to YouTube today. A paper presented at the national Popular Culture Association convention, Washington, DC.


Note: See in relationship between dehumanizing an enemy in war time and racism?


Spot any dehumanization in the following U.S. training film from World War II?

The following is a 1945 World War II propaganda film released by the U.S. War Department entitled "Know Your Enemy: Japan"   Who watched this film?  What was the purpose of the film?





Even Dr. Seuss took part in the propaganda effort.  See the presentation "Dr. Seuss Goes to War:The World War II Editorial Cartons of Theodor Seuss Geisel" (see specifically 35:00-44:00).

GlobalMedia: Globalization: Is the World Flat? (W15-P3) [VID] Sp17





In 2005,  Thomas Friedman, a noted American journalist, wrote a book titled The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century.  There is a more recent edition The World Is Flat 3.0: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century

The book has had some influence.

What does Friedman mean when he says the world is flat?



What are the 3 eras of globalization according to Friedman?



How does this connect with our earlier coverage of globalization?


Is Friedman right?
Pankaj Ghemawat: Actually, the world isn't flat.


Key terms: globalizationsocial mediaanti-globalization movement,

What is globaloney?  How is Ghemawat using the term?
In the past this term referred to an unrealistic foreign policy or global outlook.  That fits Ghemawat's usage, but Ghemawat is more specific. How? See 'globaloney' definitions below.


























(Definition from The Oxford Dictionary of American Political Slang )



How does this connect with our earlier coverage of globalization?

If Ghemawat included data on film and television, what do you think he'd say?

If you are curious:

GlobalMedia: Social Media Important to Arab Spring Revolution? (W15-P2) [VID] Sp17



Other than helping individuals to communicate, what grander social role does the Internet play?


For example, the Internet can be used to speak to power and cause social change.  In the quote below McPhail notes the role blogs played in challenging power in 2002.

Quote originally taken from 2nd edition of Global Communication.


So, in the United States the Internet can be used to speak to power, but what about in other countries.  For the Internet to play a strong role, there would need to be a substantial amount of Internet users in a country.  What sort of growth is there for Internet use around the world?  According to McPhail (2nd edition),

Quote originally taken from 2nd edition of Global Communication.


The 3rd edition of McPhail has some interesting, updated numbers.  What changes do you note?
  1. China, 298 million
  2. U.S. 227 million
  3. Japan, 94 million
  4. India, 81 million
  5. Brazil, 68 million.
Global Communication: Theories, Stakeholders, and Trends
(For slightly more updated Internet use stats see this site, if you're curious.)

So, Internet use is certainly on the rise around the world, more so in some countries than in others.

------

On the world stage, the Internet, specifically social media, has been credited with building revolutions in countries and bringing down dictators.

Take for example, protests in the former-Soviet republic of Moldova in 2009.  It was called "Moldova’s Twitter Revolution."

More recently though, when one thinks of social media and revolution, one thinks of the Arab Spring.  The Arab Spring is "a revolutionary wave of demonstrations and protests occurring in the Arab world that began on Saturday, 18 December 2010."

Countries highlighted in black are countries in which the government was overthrown. From left to right the countries are Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Yemen. Countries highlighted in other colors are countries in which some protesting occurred.


For a sense of the role social media played in Tunisia, see the following news clip.



What exactly did social media do Tunisia?  What was the role of social media?

Let's move from a specific example to a broader discussion about the role of social media has played in the Arab Spring.  Some say that social media is insignificant and others say social media play a few important roles in revolution.  What are both sides of the argument and what are the arguments on both sides.  Why, for example, would some say "no, social media doesn't play a role"?  To help answer these questions see the Zuckerman video below.

See specifically the presentation from 4:45 to 8:45 and the remainder if interested.


Note: Zuckerman is co-founded international blogging community Global Voices. Check it out of you are interested.
