Media experts have been observing a recent trend in how seemingly simple events are portrayed by our news sources.
Radical interpretations of ordinary incidents in the lives of the famous seem to be going through major distortions in our media information sources. How we perceive events in our reality is colored by prejudices, opinions and attitudes that we already have present in our minds.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the world of politics.
