雖然BBC中文網在8/38/4有更多關於此案的新聞,但是較偏向本土報紙的報導,相比之下英文網站上的這篇精簡許多,為了研究在精簡過程當中是否省略了某些因素,試著翻譯了一下:

不知道看完之後,會覺得這篇和國內報導我們對事件認知有差別嗎? 

 

另一方面,網路上流傳著CNN8/3當日的報導:Near A Quarter Million Taiwanese Gathered to Protest for Human Rights Violation in Its Military25萬臺灣人集結抗議軍方侵犯人權)內容大概更加貼近示威者角度,篇幅是BBC這篇的N倍,詳盡度直逼鄉民懶人包,而且用字措辭慷慨激昂,連蘋果日報都不如他;原來是因為這篇報導來自CNN iReport,也就是公民新聞平台,是由台灣的公民記者TofBrownCoat 發佈的,從標題的長度和「Taiwanese」這個用字大概可以看出一些端倪,不過講出來的在我們聽來當然是更像人話一點。雖然不是CNN官方報導,但能藉由CNN刊在國際性的公民平台上,仍然大快人心!

事實上,在CNNiReport下方有一個投票列,如果很多人認為「This belongs on CNN」(這新聞應該登上CNN),它就會正為官方正式新聞。到CNN註冊個帳號,投票吧。
