Part 5

There are so many types of media, some inform, some persuade and while others entertain. Media that is meant to inform is supposed to provide facts without bias. Does it? Or do they just choose to leave out what they can’t back up or what makes their side look bad? Informative information shouldn’t do that. It should show both sides and let the readers decide which side they believe. It shouldn’t just side with the government to make them look good.
When the statue of Saddam Hussein was brought down in Baghdad many were relieved. They had just destroyed a symbol of dreadful times. The Iraqis gathered and tried to tear down the statue. A mass of people waited for the fall of the statue. The Iraqis tried to break it and the United States military was glad to assist. They came with tools and soon the statue was broken and on the ground. After it was brought down the Iraqis attacked it trying to destroy all signs of what their lives have been like for quite a while. Well, isn’t that what happened or is it just a propaganda. We later found that it was staged. The military blocked off the square with their vehicles. They called people to the square and gathered reporters that were nearby to make the crowd appear bigger. We don’t know every single detail but, shouldn’t we know the whole story before we have to take sides.

As citizens shouldn’t we be allowed to know what’s going on? If we aren’t shown both sides of the story how can we know if we agree with the decisions that were made? It’s up to the community to decide what to believe. Not the media. Now that I know this I think that the US wanted to help bring down the statue to help show that the Iraqis had stopped being led by a dictator and just wanted it to be over.

3. The animals admire Boxer because he is kind and he works hard. The animals are led to think he is sent to a nice hospital but he is really sent to a glue company. Squealer covered this up by saying that the hospital just bought a van from the horse slaughterer and they didn’t have time to paint it yet.
4. The knacker symbolized that the pigs were just as bad as the humans used to be because in Old Major’s speck he said that once Boxer’s muscles lost their strength he would be sold to the knacker.
5. The two classes were the pigs and everyone else, the working animals; these two classes formed because the working animals believed the pigs were the smartest so when the pigs took over the animals were okay with it.
