A recent edition of the “MTSU On the Record” radio program tackled the alteration of images in order to manipulate the news.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Chris Harris, professor in the MTSU Department of Electronic Media Communication, aired on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org). You can listen to their entire conversation here and watch a video snippet of it below.
Harris, a veteran photographer who teaches courses in digital imaging and media ethics, asserts that some journalists are so enthralled with compelling images that verification and context are ignored.
Some of Harris’ former clients include Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, Paris Match and Der Spiegel.
