News and Media
Transcript of News and Media
by Manzuma Hasan, Saloni Khamar & Mehar Duggal
Thanks for watching!
What the government knows:
What we are told:
-works in Ministry of Truth
-very intelligent about his work
-still hates the society he lives in
-he would definitely be biased towards the news in today's world
-works Big Brother in Inner Party
-All media in 1984 loves Big Brother and promotes the government. Whereas today, there are multiple sides a news channel can take. Winston would probably feel frustrated and helpless from the different opinions.
-novelist and journalist
-producer in BBC in 1941
-in charge of propaganda during WW I I but quit because he didn't enjoy it
-1984 published in 1949
-would probably be a spy/politician today
-deceiving, cunning, intelligent
-sees Big Brother for who he is but agrees with him
Does anybody even know exactly who Big Brother is?
The Ministry of Love
Not everyone in the novel knows what the Ministry of Love does, but no one questions it either.
The government has all the accurate and factual information.
They decide what should be given out to the media and what should remain disclosed.
Similar to 1984.
Bits of the puzzle.
Each bit is different and somewhat biased due to the news/media's network.
Almost never solely facts
-would agree with how some of the news is concealed
-would believe that the less we knew, the better off we are

In Today's news...
Role of Media in 1984
Due to the fact that there is no media in 1984, all the information and news is revealed only from one source- the government. This signified that only one side of the story would be told and the public would be forced to believe it. The lack of media was a contributing factor that brainwashed the people of The Party.
