雞生蛋還是蛋生雞?臺灣大眾媒體處理殺害兒童事件的議題設定

一位四歲女童最近遭到殘殺,使得死刑存廢爭議在臺灣再次浮上檯面。看來這樣的道德爭論似乎只在提供羶色腥報導素材的「震驚社會」新聞事件中才會出現。既然大眾媒體玩弄著標題殺人法為粉絲頁帶來的點閱人潮,死刑存廢的虛假爭論終究也只能餵養出一整代漠然而被動的個人。

Chicken Or Egg?

The recent murder case of a four year old girl in Taiwan has brought the capital punishment debate back on stage. It seems that such ethical debates only seem to appear in the case of “shocking” news that provides opportunities for sensationalist journalism. As mass media rides the wave of clickbait streaming into their sites, the phony argumentation only proves to breed generation of nonchalant and passive individuals. We might consider the role of the media in the debate.
