Media Ideologies

Sun, The TruthFoxMein+Kampf

Ideologies in media aren’t difficult to find; everyone has an inherent bias on any subject. The Sun (pictured above) tried to present the fans at the Hillsborough Disaster as evil and getting in the way of the “brave” police. In truth, the police were at fault for letting too many people in the stadium and causing a crush. the fans actually helped the police to assist injured people. The Sun Newspaper was trying to present that the fans were at fault.

Fox News is a news business in the USA. It frequently tries to paint the Obama administration as incompetent. Whether you think that’s true or not, it’s clear that Fox News is biased against the administration. It’s trying to present its ideology in that the Republican Party should be in charge, not the Democrats.

In book form, we have Hitler himself. His book “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle) is an attack on the then current German state of affairs and blames Jews for all the bad in the world. His ideology is obvious: Jews are bad, I can fix Germany.
