Big Brother Is Watching You



  1. It’s such a shame that the ownership of our media is so limited and our media is so biased! To answer a few of your questions, there is a good chance that you’ll be forced to conform to someone else’s standards. However, it is likely that there are still employers who do encourage journalists to write about their passions. If you can find an employer like this, do not leave them!

    Secondly, our media is so incredibly biased. It is difficult to find a media outlet-particularly a news source that expresses a diverse range of opinions. It seems that many news sources are either left or right wing; there is no in between. Hopefully this changes, and the ownership of our media disseminates.
    Great post by the way! 🙂


  2. I like your references to George Orwell’s ‘1984’. When I studied the text in year 11 (2013) I wasn’t aware of how severe the message was and brushed it off as hyperbolic, though part of me was worried. Over the past few years, especially since beginning this course, I have come to notice various similarities between the two and frankly I find that alarming. The concentration that you have talked about was well researched and the links were all really interesting to read. You also make a very valid point in regards to the restraints that may be placed on journalism in no longer than five years time which is a threat I believe more people should be worried about. After finding out how concentrated and mediated the media has become, I find it hard to view the news or read articles without some sort of skepticism. Great Post!
