We all have our opinions about a certain person or event. But whatever our take is on the matter, the unfortunate truth is that our basis is mostly influenced by the media.
However, we know that there’s definitely more than one side of the story. Here are 12 photos that show how media can sometimes manipulate the truth.
1. When you’re looking at a different angle.
This photo was taken when Prince William and Kate Middleton presented their third Royal Baby, Prince Louis of Cambridge, to the world. This is a solid proof that you shouldn’t believe everything that you see because if the second photo didn’t exist, then people would be very disappointed with the Duke of Cambridge for allegedly losing his temper.
2. The story sometimes depends on how a photo is cropped.
U.S. Marines from the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit were helping an Iraqi soldier with water from a canteen in Southern Iraq, March 21, 2003.
3. TV news station.
Just like a homebased freelancer!
4. Presidential inauguration of Donald Trump.
5. Hillary Clinton’s rally in Omaha.
6. Soldiers playing with kids.
7. Conservative leader Theresa May launches the Party’s campaign bus in Northumberland.
Yet another advantage of a closer shot. Now every time you see a full-packed rally, campaign or others on TV, you shouldn’t take in in face value right away.
8. Photographer Ruben Salvador covered the conflict between Israeli soldiers and Palestinian youths.
The picture above was staged in cooperation with a young Palestinian.
9. Pro-immigration protest.
10. Tax protest in Paris.
11. Hillary Clinton’s Event In Ohio
12. It’s all in the cropping.
Unfortunately, media has the power to feed us any information that they wanted by manipulating us with their own way of telling the story. Sometimes, they would go as far as cropping a photo to make it look like a certain way, and we end up believing it.
14 Outrageously Strange Laws Around the World that We All Have to Live With
Strange laws can cause a lot of trouble. While some are totally bizarre, get caught off-guard and you just might end up behind bars.
“There are some totally bizarre and ‘out there’ laws and customs still in place around the world," says Fabio Passalacqua, director of Jetcost.co.uk. That being said, it's surely worth knowing some of them to avoid jail time during your vacation.
Though most tourist knows it's an absolute must to be sensitive to local customs, some laws are just too odd that even the most diligent of travelers can suffer from dire consequences. From food and flowers to colors to hairstyles, you won't believe the things governments forbid these days.
Here are some of the forbidden stuff that could get an unknowing holidaymaker behind bars:...
Remote Korowai Tribe In Papua New Guinea Revealed In Stunning Photos
Their lifestyle hasn’t changed much for hundreds of years!
We learn something about the world every day. New photos of the remote Indonesian tribe in Papua New Guinea offers an insight into their everyday life. Interestingly, these people are slowly leaving their treehouses and settling into regular villages.
The Korowai people live in the forests of the Indonesian part of Papua New Guinea. The tribes were disconnected from the outside world until the 1970s. Today, they are beginning to be more accepting of outsiders. However, they still maintain their lifestyle as hunters and gatherers.

Father Complains About Son Being Threatened For Wearing Hitler Costume
The boy was reportedly harassed by “grown adults” who were “screaming obscenities.”
It's never a good thing when a child is being threatened. A father recently complained about his son being harassed while they were out getting treats for Halloween. However, the man may have overlooked the fact that he had dressed the boy as Hitler. In addition to that, he himself was wearing a Nazi soldier costume.
Bryant Goldbach took to Facebook to complain about his 5-year-old son being threatened as they went trick-or-treating. He stated that the boy was harassed by "grown adults" who "threatened to rip his outfit off of him screaming obscenities, scareing [sic] a small child." However, Goldbach barely got sympathy for his post considering that their costumes offended several people.
These costumes certainly raised several eyebrows.
