The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.

一周花4小時看雜誌

一周花10小時上網

 

平均一天消耗在媒體的時間為:10小時45分鐘

 

身為公民的一份子,站前部落格小編從事國際傳播研究,美國學者指出全球新聞在商業市場邏輯運作下,媒體教育功能全面喪失,走向全球資訊娛樂化時代。

 

以台灣媒體為例,以港資[壹]傳媒進駐台灣為分水嶺,掀起全民狗仔、八卦文化與性羶色潮流,將平面、電子媒體訓練成娛樂民眾的機器。什麼時候開始,我們的消費者已經不再思考,自己與媒體的關連性為何,甚至放任我們孩子也陪葬於這一場娛樂戰爭之中。

 

Miss Representation這部獨立製片,重新喚醒市井小民的批判思維,不能等到媒體毒瘤擴散為社會問題,消費者要自行抵抗這波瘟疫,說是瘟疫也不誇張,看看家中的成員,花多少時間在臉書、花多少時間在I-PAD、花多少時間在PLAY-BOY雜誌、花多少時間在海賊王,然而真正閱讀知識的時間少之又少,甚至相信網路上資迅當作知識來源。

 

重視媒體適讀的小編,希望從這一刻起,讓菁英的學員也成為訓練有素的公民。

Today’s female teenagers consume more media than anyone ever. Each week, they devour more than 31 hours of television and 17 hours of music: programming pervaded by the message that their value lies more in their fleeting physical attraction than in lasting intellectual or leadership capacities. Miss Representationmeasures the magnitude of that phenomenon, including the way objectification gets internalized—in a symbolic devaluing of self-worth—inhibiting girls and women from realizing their full potential.

 

 Actress, filmmaker and former first lady of San Francisco, Jennifer Siebel Newsom marshals astonishing facts and statistics, supported by provocative stories from teenage girls as well as candid interviews with actors, politicians, journalists, academics and activists (a roll call that includes Jane Fonda, Geena Davis, Margaret Cho, Condoleeza Rice, Nancy Pelosi and Gloria Steinem).

 

Siebel Newsom critically examines recent and stark episodes of sexism and prejudice in the public sphere, including the media’s unbalanced treatment of Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin and Hollywood’s ongoing exploitation of actresses and women directors. The accumulation of startling details will leave viewers shaken but armed with a new perspective.

 

A personal narrative woven throughout, reflecting on the recent birth of her daughter Montana, affirms Siebel Newsom’s genuine desire to ignite national enthusiasm for helping to advance the next generation. This is powerful advocacy on behalf of a more balanced portrayal of women and girls across the full spectrum of media we and they so voraciously consume.
