Propaganda

posted Oct 14, 2011, 7:02 AM by kristoffer Spigseth

Propaganda is a word that comes from all the Latin words. it is biased information designed to shape public opinions and behavior. Propaganda can be sent out in the world very easy now compared for what it was in the 1940's. Now we can just make a webpage or post something on the internet instead of actually saying it in a big speech, and then forwarding it to other people to spread the word. Propagada really started in the late 1800's start of the 1900's. it was spread by assemblys and speeches as I mentioned earlier. They used propaganda in both of the world wars. they used it to make the enemy feel small so they would give up, shape the enemies public opinions and behavior. Propaganda is used today to. In political elections, wars, you name it. they use it to make the enemy feel smaller so they would give up or be easier to win over.

Blogging responsible

posted Oct 14, 2011, 6:32 AM by kristoffer Spigseth

I think a lot of people out there needs to think a bit before they are posting random stuff on the internet. I think before I post stuff on for example facebook, before I am posting a new post, comment or whatever, I am thinking: "should I post this? what happends if I post this? and what is the person going to say?" it is easy to just think for 10 or 20 seconds if you should post it or not. easy.

Transition

I think it would be hard for me to live before the postmodernism because I am not used to not have any sorts of technology, electrisity or nothing like that. I am supprised of the Amish people that live in the PREmodernism.
 

Technology will never stop advancing at all. this is the time that the technology really starts to advance, I think this is just the beginning. I have seen holograms. at the end there will probably be TV's like that.
 
I don't think we should use less technology. I think we should use it like we always use it. we should be able to survive without it. I could survive without it, but there is probably people out there that wont.

Reaction to 9/11 Documentary

posted Sep 20, 2011, 11:02 AM by kristoffer Spigseth

I liked how the documentary was filmed by real people that was there when it happend. I also liked how they had edited it afterwards, they showed how it was before the attacks, during the attacks and after. They interviewed some of the people that saw and filmed it and we got to hear and see their reactions. I think it is horrible that they crashed the planes into the Twin Towers and killed that many people. after the 9/11 attacks, I now have a diffrent view on people from the middle east and from East-Europe.

Reaction to Meda Survey

Well, I can se right away that phones and internet is taking over from the television and the newspaper. There was a high number of people that used internet to get information instead of TV or the newspapers. many people read magazines but not daily, most of them read magazines weekly or monthly, maby because they noew get their reading entertainment on the internet? I find what i'm intrested in on the internet instead of the magazines because they only releases once a month. everyone owns a phone today, but not everybody have internet on them though, I don't know why.

Chapter 1, Mass communication

posted Aug 29, 2011, 6:47 AM by kristoffer Spigseth

Mass communication can be diffrent things like newspapers, TV, internet and radio. Everybody likes to watch TV, that is probably why we are getting news through it. in that way they can inform many people about what is happening out in the world. The mass communication has a linear model that is set up like this:
senders - authors that writes the articles
mass media channel - a newspaper, TV channel (fox news), a book, a magazine
recievers - readers, viewers, consumers
gatekeepers - news editors, executive producers
and feedback - comments on the internet or letters to the newspaper, phone calls, E-mails.
