Pictures are Worth a Thousand Words on Next ‘MTSU On the Record’
The next edition of the “MTSU On the Record” radio program tackles the alteration of images in order to manipulate the news.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Chris Harris, professor in the MTSU Department of Electronic Media Communication, will air from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, June 17, and from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, June 23, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).
Harris, a veteran photographer who teaches courses in digital imaging and media ethics, asserts that some journalists are so enthralled with compelling images that verification and context are ignored.
Some of Harris’ former clients include Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, Paris Match, and Der Spiegel.
