refusing to apologise for her burqa stunt in the senate”, this opening lead is very effective as it draws attention to the audience resulting in the
audience watch the rest of the news program. As the segment continues it shows medium-shots of Pauline Hanson’s perspective with shots

To what degree has the truth been selected / sensationalised / manipulated / mediated in each text?

The truth has been sensationalised and manipulated through several ways in this news segment. First, the title of the news segment, “Pauline
Hanson laughs at burqa stunt” is used as clickbait and manipulation. This title manipulates the audience into thinking that Pauline Hanson is
laughing at the “burqa stunt”, however, Hanson never actually laughs directly about the stunt, she is only seen laughing in one short clip about
something without any context behind it. Also, right at the start of the news segment, the presenter states that Pauline Hanson is, “refusing to
apologise”, a very biased and manipulating remark by Ten Eyewtiness News, influencing the audience to be against Senator Hanson. The
segment then continues without showing any clips of Hanson supporters that had agreed with Senator Hanson’s burqa stunt, take One Nation
Senator Malcolm Roberts for example, who praised Pauline Hanson’s stunt as “courageous”.
