Falsos titulares - False heads

지난달


Por @latino.romano

La desesperación es artífice de los más descarados engaños y de las más absurdas burlas que se han perpetrado en la historia de la humanidad.

Es posible que mis palabras suenen algo exageradas y de hecho lo son, pues no tengo manera de demostrar la absoluta veracidad de lo que digo, si bien estoy seguro de que mis palabras tienen algo de verdad.

Es justamente esa zona gris donde se difumina la exactitud y comienza a dibujarse la mentira, la que suele ser piedra de tropiezo en el mundo de la propaganda. Tropiezo me refiero para el público en general que lee o mira dicha publicidad engañosa.

Miraba una noticia en internet que decía algo como: “Un asteroide podría chocar contra la Tierra este mes”. Algo así debe llamar la atención de muchos, sobre todo si las primeras líneas del texto comienzan con: “Científicos de la nasa han detectado un asteroide potencialmente peligroso en trayectoria hacia nosotros”...

Al continuar leyendo, me di cuenta de que se trata de uno de los muchos objetos espaciales que visitan los alrededores de nuestro hogar y que realmente no representa ningún peligro para la vida en la Tierra. Una noticia falsa.

Parece que nos acostumbramos a estos titulares, pues la sociedad acepta con algo de ironía y risas tabloides de este tipo, cuando en otros tiempos quizá eran prohibidos.

Peor aún es que esta forma de concebir la propaganda parece colarse en otros ámbitos de nuestra vida. Ofertas de empleos falsas están haciendo de las suyas con la tranquilidad, el ánimo y la confianza de muchos profesionales esmerados que ven pisoteados sus talentos por empleadores que aseguran salarios y condiciones suculentas que nunca se cumplen por tecnicismos o por falsas “situaciones” adversas a las empresas contratantes.

Recientemente ha habido un debate acalorado sobre el uso del voto negativo en la plataforma. Parece que a alguien le gusta la idea de dar a conocer a los demás cuanto le desagrada lo que alguien pública. Si mi esposa me prepara una comida, pero a mí no me gusta el sabor o la presentación, no me imagino diciéndole “no me gusto lo que hiciste, te doy -25% por tu esfuerzo”. Seguro después de decir una locura como esa tendré que buscarme un sitio donde dormir esa noche.

Pero no quiero seguir aquí con ese debate absurdo y sin sentido del voto negativo, no me importa cuanto lo defiendan ni quienes lo hagan, lo traigo a colación porque pienso que uno de sus usos debería ser sobre este tipo de noticias falsas tintadas de verdad que circulan por la red y sobre las publicaciones que prometen algo que no cumplen para perjuicio de sus lectores.

Básicamente no me trauma el hecho de que exista un voto negativo, me trauma más el hecho de que en algunas publicaciones buenas se pueda ver cientos de votos a favor del autor, pero con un valor de 0,000. Si un voto positivo es algo como 0,01 y un voto negativo es algo como -0,01 ¿Exactamente qué es un voto al 0,00? Quizá alguien pueda explicármelo. Para mí es como los titulares sensacionales que deambulan en la red o como las figuras falsas de animales que se usan en los criaderos para llamar la atención. Ciertamente pocas personas querrían tomarse una foto con un encantador animal de cartón.

Despair is the architect of the most shameless deceptions and the most absurd mockeries that have been perpetrated in the history of mankind.

My words may sound somewhat exaggerated, and in fact they are, for I have no way of proving the absolute truth of what I say, though I am sure my words have some truth in them.

It is precisely that grey area where accuracy is blurred and lies begin to be drawn, which is often a stumbling block in the world of propaganda. I mean stumbling blocks for the general public who read or watch such misleading advertising.

I was looking at a piece of news on the Internet that said something like: "An asteroid could hit the Earth this month. Something like this should attract the attention of many, especially if the first lines of the text begin with: "Nasa scientists have detected a potentially dangerous asteroid on its way to us"....

As I continued reading, I realized that this is one of the many space objects that visit the surroundings of our home and that it really does not pose any danger to life on Earth. False news.

It seems that we get used to these headlines, because society accepts with some irony and tabloid laughter of this kind, when in other times they were perhaps forbidden.

Even worse is that this way of conceiving propaganda seems to slip into other areas of our lives. False job offers are doing theirs with the tranquility, courage and confidence of many conscientious professionals who see their talents trampled underfoot by employers who ensure salaries and succulent conditions that are never fulfilled by technicalities or by false "situations" adverse to the hiring companies.

Recently there has been a heated debate over the use of the negative vote on the platform. It seems that someone likes the idea of letting others know how much they dislike what someone public does. If my wife prepares me a meal, but I don't like the taste or the presentation, I can't imagine saying "I don't like what you did, I'll give you -25% for your effort". Surely after saying something crazy like that I will have to find a place to sleep that night.

But I don't want to continue here with this absurd and meaningless debate about the negative vote, I don't care how much they defend it or who does it, I bring it up because I think that one of its uses should be about this type of false news tinted with truth that circulates on the net and about the publications that promise something that they don't fulfill to the detriment of their readers.

Basically I am not traumatized by the fact that there is a negative vote, I am more traumatized by the fact that in some good publications you can see hundreds of votes in favor of the author, but with a value of 0.000. If a positive vote is something like 0.01 and a negative vote is something like -0.01 Exactly what is a vote at 0.00? Maybe someone can explain it to me. To me, it's like the sensational headlines wandering around the net or the false animal figures used in the kennels to draw attention. Certainly few people would want to have their picture taken with a charming cardboard animal.

Valid point on the meals @latino.romano. Just because someone doesn't agree, doesn't mean they should be 'punished'.
