Power of words in the media

How does the media manipulate people? Take this simple example. This is a CNN headline from a few minutes ago: “EU signs accord with Ukraine, as Russia finalizes Crimea annexation”. Think about the difference if CNN phrased it a little differently: “Russia signs accord with Crimea, as EU finalizes Ukraine annexation”
That’s the power of words! And the people of the media are very proficient at choosing the right words for the right effects
