my description on my political cartoon:I chose this political cartoon because it reflects the trends of today’s democracy.We all know that democracy is defined as a form of government in which the people are the first and the highest authority. However, not everyone’s voice and opinion can be heard and considered. In addition, digital media become the main concern in people’s daily life. We can get informations and latest issues easily by turning on televisions and social medias. Also, media has become the main source of information transmission and value creation.  Through media,  we can be well informed about our community, countries and the world.But some media reports are not comprehensive, and they like to select news reports based on trends to achieve the highest attention rate. For example, negative news is always easier to catch people’s attention. Therefore, the media will filter the information to expose only a part of the information. Just like this political cartoon, there is obviously a large group of people representing positive information, but those journalists and the media only focus on negative information. So only negative information will be presented. This creates the wrong value and is misleading. Not only that,  in the first paragraph of Foa and Stryuk reading has also reflected such wrong situation.

“For four decades, Die Welt, one of West Germany’s leading newspapers, refused to acknowledge the existence of an East German state. Since the paper’s editors expected the communist regime to collapse within a matter of years, they put scare quotes around its initials when- ever they discussed the German Democratic Republic (GDR). While other papers reported about the policies pursued by the GDR, Die Welt unfailingly wrote about the “GDR.”” (Foa and Stryuk, page 5).  This passage proves that the newspaper as a source of information transmission refused to acknowledge some informations. However, this behavior is wrong, and the information should be presented to the public fairly.
