Event Description

The topic of the second MEPEACE.org Chat Workshop will be: Media's effects on society as an opinion-molder

There will be two follow up meetings to the first workshop (see: http://www.mepeace.org/xn/detail/661876:Event:390252?xg_source=activity).

This is the first of them and as well, the opportunity to discuss negative/positive effects of media. The participants will be able to share experiences with media as a constraint/encouragement to dialogue and try to find some answers:

1 Why do 'we' believe the media? Can we all 'really' make up our own minds instead?

2 To what extent are 'traditional' media losing their important role? What can 'we' do to involve everybody (including those who believe in traditional media alone) in dialogue? How can we most effectively use Web 2.0 applications?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please note that the event will start on Sunday, 03 January 2010 at 20.00 Israel/Palestine time
.

If you have any questions regarding the event, please don't hesitate us to contact us on mepeace.dialogue@gmail.com.

Looking forward to seeing you next Sunday in the second MEPEACE.org Chat.

We are the mainstream media Ray.
Let's unite in one word and spread the good news.

Got confused with time Oliver.
I said I have missed it. Never mind. Until next time then.

As I said I have missed the event but not opportunity to share my father's observation about the holy land.
Let's Council the Holy Land. Let's Council the wHole World.
When in 1967 that war erupted between Israel and Arabic States my farther said: They are still, like for centuries, fighting for the holy land. But imagine Maniuṡ, imagine the globe, imagine the earth from afar. Drain the whole water from its surface, all you going to be left with is a dry, solid ROCK!, dry solid land!. Wherever you put your finger on, on any place of this one solid land, it is going to land on the holy land. Isn't? The holy land is everywhere.
The whole world have to learn and comprehend and accept, especially people living in this particular area, people who live in Jerusalem, in the city of Peace.
THE HOLY LAND IS EVERYWHERE! Not only in Jerusalem, Mecca or any other 'holy' shrine or place on Earth. Wake up people, wake up to the Truth, to the True image of The Holy Land. Stop living this distorted image our father's fathers lived for so long. Wake up and accept the Truth and Reality.
THE HOLY LAND IS EVERYWHERE!
I am looking forward to comments?

Comment by Ray Hanania on January 3, 2010 at 3:03pm
One suggestion on what we can do. The most important is when we read a one-sided piece in the mainstream news media we should write them and demand they present both sides. It's not just a problem with the Middle East, but with many other topics, too. We would being doing a service by calling out the media but too often instead of demanding the other side, we get dragged in to a debate about the one-sided column they did publish. Resist the temptation to be dragged down by your emotions and use your common sense and logic to strategically challenge media bias.

The problemw ith the media isn't that theya re not to be believed. The problem is the media doesn't give the whole picture and they are driven less by truth and justice and more by what the public demands in terms of content. "If it bleeds it leads" is the media's mantra which is one reason why the middle East conflict is always in the headlines. It would be nice if we could get both sides. But the problem is the public often is satisfied when "their" side is published and the "other side" is not published; instead of calling out news media that are biased, many in the public cheer the bias because it reinforces that they believe while the rest bash the media because it excludes evebn a discussion of their views.

That's one reason why the mainstream media is dying in the Westl all of the intelligent media thought is migrating to the Internet where free speech (with all its good, bad and ugly can be found) is thriving and you can hear, read and see all sides.
