The Population control..

The picture we are showing in above is a critics from the economist for Hugo Chavez policy in silencing the opposition media. But my friend, lets not go too deep in the debate in those far land of latin America, frankly I dont care is he a lefties, the heir of fidel castro, or che guevara..

The most noticibly concern is that Hugo Chavez has awareness in growing role of media in the modern society these days. The growing habit is that Metropolitan people perceive  morning newspaper to accompany their breakfast is a form of necessity and guess what they trust whatever those morning newspaper is saying.. just because they thought that the media is entertaining them with mere facts..

my question is… is it a mere fact? or does the media is trying to steer its audience. I go with the later. Let me bring you the most latest incident in Indonesia. After only a week the government raise the price of gas, there was an incident between FPI (Islamic Defence Front) and mass organization called AKBB (the Alliance for Religious Harmony in Indonesia Aliansi kebebasan Umat beragama) I anylize 11 different newspaper and everyone of them suddenly change the issu from oil to this small skirmish, not to mention every news is undercutting FPI except Republika. One week after they finish sucking up the issue, they (the media) blows up an old fashion issue of Islamic sects of Ahmadiyah. They facilitate public debate and warming up the public. creating pro’s and con’s. A week after they soak the issue, then they turn back to stab good names of politican such as AMien Rais and SYafiie Maarif. ANd accused them as supporters of Ahmadiyah. While as a matter of fact, those politican sign up with AKBB just because they are inform that this pact will be a mile stone for religious harmony.. not anything about ahmadiyah.. the blows up from the media has create a public agony.. and people are forgetting that living cost is stranggeling and killing..

After a week, in media we see student protesting the rise of oil by violence movement. I put my life on it that those people who protest in that streets is aint students. They’re actors who are paid to set the image of protesting students as vigourous and brutal people in society. Therefor, the other part of our society perceive that being a good citizen is taking the beating and shut up..

Control the media control the population. thats the slogan nowdays democrasy should use. They say that media is the watch dog of democracy. With the assumption that it will bark for any government missbehave. In todays era, we have learn that media has evolve. it has become a guard dog for the reigning government. and who nows when it will become a circus dog.. Nevertheless lets give the standing applause for SBY’s creative team – RIzal Malarangeng who maid all this humpty dumpty population control a success and putting SBY in top of the popularity poll.. so my friend, if you miss a newspaper for about a week lets not make too much  a fuss about it, u havent miss that much really.. as for me, I read news and mumbling what lies are they selling today…
