The project ntv_newsfake is reflecting in a critical way the news-reports of the terrorist attacks of September 11th with a completely computer-sketched, developed and converted news – message. In a couple of live-reports and studio-news people get informed about series of possible terrorist attacks at the Rhine harbor Karlsruhe and the nuclear power plant in Philippsburg. Sensational pictures are supplied, which are set in contrast to the valuation of the transmission on sober information and pure facts. The newsreport supplies no dissolution and leaves the viewer an open end. ntv_newsfake analyzes the usual media cycles and represents thereby medium-critical handling with so-called sents infotainment in a sense of true and authentically reflective television reporting.
