专八题目:

Is Internet Sensationalizing Acceptable?
专八范文:
  
For most Netizens, the following scenario may befamiliar: a post with erotic photos is submitted by aNetizen in certain forum; “interested” Netizens beginto make both positive and negative comments sothat increasing number of Netizens would be involvedin the hot discussion; and then the post is to belinked toother forums and websites, the post-submitter to be interviewed by a series of entertainment programs and newspapers;eventually, the post-submitter gains celebrity overnight. Netizens call this process Internetsensationalizing.
  
对于大多数网友来说,接下来的一些情况似乎很熟悉:一位网友在某论坛中发布淫秽相片:感兴趣的网友开始对照片发表评论,有好有坏,以至于越来越多的网友参与到了热议当中:之后,帖子被连接到其他论坛和网站之中:发布帖子的网友受到了娱乐节目、报纸的采访:最终,这位网友一夜之间爆红,网友管这种行为叫做网络轰动。
  
By far, there have been a variety of successful Internet sensationalizing cases such as LotusSister and February Girl. While many conservative people deem it vulgar, I personally thinkthat the sensationalizing is acceptable so long as it is not maliciously intended.
  
到目前为止,已经出现了许多网络爆红的事件,例如莲花姐姐、二月女孩。许多保守的网友认为这些人低俗愚昧,我个人认为这样的网络轰动是可以接受的,只要不是出于恶意就是可以的。
  
Firstly, the Internet sensationalizing provides opportunities to grass-root people who want tomake a name. Generally speaking, it is difficult for grass-root people to become eminentthrough conventional means, for the world is so competitive that only those most talentedand diligent people can make it. Even if they eventually realize their dreams, it would take timeand efforts. Thanks to the Internet, people can easily be informed, which indicates that so longas the news is sensational enough, it will be quickly transmitted to each corner of our country.Overnight, it is likely that an unknown person hits the headlines of portal websites, and then isinterviewed by different newspapers. If the new big shot proves well-received by the public, theywill soon be offered a role in movies or TV series.
  
第一,网络爆红给草根阶级人民提供了机会,给与了他们出名的机会。通体来讲,草根阶级出名是很困难的,尤其是通过传统手段出名,世界竞争激烈,只有那些天赋异禀、肯努力付出的人才能出名。即使他们实现了梦想,那也需要时间和努力才能实现。由于互联网,人们的消息四通八达,只要消息够轰动,很快就能遍及全国。人们有可能会因为点击了门户网站的标题而受到各种报纸的采访。如果这一信息得到了公众的认可,他们很快就会在电影和电视剧中担任角色。
  
Secondly, as Internet sensationalizing can not succeed without hot discussion of contrastopinions, participants in the discussion will have access to different ideasand become morerational. For example, in Chanel Girl’s case, she claimed that she was expelled by the universityauthorities because she had renouncedforeign language teaching in her blog. In response,some Netizens argue that as an individual has the right of delivering free speeches, it isridiculous for a prestigious university to expel the student. Of course, there are Netizenswho disagree with the argument. They argue that we can not believe in all what Chanel Girl saidin her blog, for it would take time for the university to make the decision. As the later revealedtruth indicates, the girl lied. In this sense, people will learn to figure out the truth in theInternet sensationalizing and hence become more rational.
  
第二,如果互联网轰动没有反对意见也是不会成功的,参与者有不同的意见,这样的意见才能更为理性。例如,在香奈儿女孩事件中,她说大学将她逐出了学校因为她放弃了在博客中教授英文。许多网友认为每个人都有表达自己意见的权利,知名大学开除学生是不可理喻的。当然,还有许多网友不同意这样的观点。他们认为我们不能够全然相信香奈儿女孩在微博中所说的事实,大学也应该在最早时间作出决定。这样的事实证明女孩说了谎。从这一方面讲,人们应该在网络轰动上认清事实,并变得更加理性。
  
Undoubtedly, there are some negative impacts of Internet sensationalizing. For example, thoseinvolved in the sensationalizing may be unfairly criticized. Anyway, Internet sensationalizing canbe used by grass-root people to make a name overnight, if they do not have maliciousintentions.
  
毋庸置疑,人们对网络轰动也有质疑之声。例如,参与到网络轰动的人或许会遭到不公平的批判。总而言之,网络轰动是草根阶级一夜成名的途径之一,前提是他们没有恶意。
