German media whistleblower Katrin Sebold describes how they create fake news (she’s been privy to it) and how the media manipulates narratives.
In discussion with Operation People’s Chantelle Baker, Sebold describes her 18+ year career in mainstream media, highlighting instances where she and her colleagues were asked to deliberately spread fear to promote certain agendas.
Obviously not every piece of media content is manipulated/shaped, but it does happen, she says.
Sebold’s personal experiences and insights into the creation of fake news and media manipulation underscores the importance of critical journalism, transparency and accountability within media organisations.
