The power of Press in manipulating people's mind

Almost a week since the terrorist attacks in Paris happened and all the press around the world do, is to keep talking about it. It’s something like there’s nothing happening in the globe, but the attacks on French soil. 

It demonstrates, once again, the force of the press and media alike. They have the power to brainwash people’s mind as they have been doing now. To give you an example,  a terrorist attack also took place in Nigeria this week, but almost there’s nothing about it. In Israel, Palestinians are stabbing Israelis, but again, nothing published. In Brazil, a week ago, the Mariana Town, in the State of Minas Gerais has vanished covered with mud after a dam owned by “Vale do Rio Doce” and BHP Billiton ,burst - and also the world did not know it (see below some images of the tragedy in Brazil).

So, why all this fuss about Paris attacks?

It’s simple. It’s Paris.

Nobody cares what’s going on in other parts of the world, unless it happens in Europe or US. The rest of the world, is just this: the rest.

Below, pictures of the disaster in Brazil, in Mariana, a Bento Rodrigues District, where lives where also lost, but it's almost not noticed by press around the world.
