Manipulating Media Messages

By Christopher R. Raines

I’m one of those people who will try pushing buttons, turning dials and flipping switches just to see “what happens.”  I was at a local family dairy farm last fall and I had my video camera with me.  I captured some footage in the calf barn just in what I’ll call “regular mode” and also captured some footage in “night mode.”  The contrast is amazing and illustrates just how easy something good can be made to appear very bad.
