Are you surprised? This is large-scale brainwashing of the population, throught the PRAVDA. At least, when we speculate, we say so. But not them. How to PUBLICIZE THIS INFO, so NAIVE people will be warned??

( A new media study shows that speculation in Israeli headlines has jumped by 250% in the past 20 years.

The research was carried out by Dr. Moti Zeiger of the School of Media in the Netanya College, who also serves as the Chairman of the Israel Association for Communications.

Zeiger researched 1,745 front-page headlines in the three leading Israeli newspapers since 1985, and came up with this tidbit: A third of the headlines relate to events that may never happen. 

Most significant is the fact that the phenomenon is very much on the rise.  Twenty years ago, only 17% of the headlines were speculative, while today, that number has risen to 41%. 

The newspapers that were researched: Yediot Acharonot, Maariv, and Haaretz.

Dr. Zeiger has published research on various topics having to do with media and the press, including internet talkbacks, the media's role in shaping the structure and limits of public dialogue on disputed issues, journalists as representatives of the community and culture in which they operate, the clash between obligation to country and to their profession, reality shows, and more.
