Formatted Abstract/Summary
This book will propose we should be highly skeptical about televised pictures, and skeptical about the people and organizations that make them. We must ask critical questions like:

• Who constructs these televised images?
• What are the interests, biases, worldviews and agendas of those who make these images? and
• Do the work practices of all those involved in making these images in any way skew the pictures we receive? If so, how?

In essence, we must not accept these televisual representations at face value. Rather we must be clear about how and why they were made, and how they almost certainly portray a partial and skewed view of the world. Instead ofuncritically looking at the picture on the screen, we should be thinking about the camera, the cameraman, the cameraman's boss, the journalist's bias, the journalist's boss, and the spin-doctors who seek to influence all of this. We must start to critically think about what is the camera pointed at? Why has it been pointed at this? What is behind the camera that we are not getting to see? What is being edited out? and by whom? And how does the journalist's or continuity announcer's voice-over change how we see the pictures? To what extent, and under what circumstance, do spin-doctors successfully 'steer' people? Why do so many people fall for the 'hype' and scripted 'faces' of manufactured celebrity?
