media manipulation is the use of omission, exaggeration or repetition to make a 'news' story something it is not.
Often used to promote a particular ideology or fashionable concept.
The staging of the toppling of Saddam Hussein's statue in Baghdad was a classic case of media manipulation. Pictures of this non-event were broadcast globally and repeatedly to give the impression of a massive demo when in fact there were only around 150 people present.
