Biased Communication. A Question of Perspective
Should communication convey pure and direct information? Should a point of view be reserved for opinion articles, which establish the position of that journalist on a particular topic?
Surely it should be so, but everyone knows that no news is neutral, impartial. The attachment to certain values, ideals, beliefs, the style of the journalist and the Media on which he or she works determines the inclination that the content will have when expressed. And even further: the manipulation (in the least pejorative sense of the term) of the contents allows to emphasize some and minimize others, so that the interpretation of the recipient of the news can utterly vary.
