ChatGPT exposes framing of news portals

Today I once again came across a Facebook post in my News Feed that managed to do what it set out to do, get my attention. And this attention he also got.

"RightWingGPT: Scientist instills right-wing sentiment in ChatGPT".

This is the title of the article, which I link below.

What goes unnoticed by the less media analyzing, this title has one goal, and that is to deliberately manipulate and frame, and clickbait.

And ChatGPT can also analyze the clickbait right here, saving me the probably only half as good explanation of the structure. Fascinating and instructive at the same time:

I'd be happy to explain the individual words in the title "RightWingGPT: Scientist instills right-wing sentiments in ChatGPT" and their psychological clickbait relevance:

  • RightWingGPT: The word "RightWing" refers to the political orientation of the AI model and suggests an extremist stance. It has a psychological relevance for clickbait, as it can evoke a strong emotional reaction in people who are repelled by right-wing views.
  • Scientist: The word "scientist" conveys a certain authority and credibility and arouses the reader's interest in the research results, which are supported by a trustworthy source. This has psychological clickbait relevance, as people tend to view information that comes from authorities or experts as more reliable and credible.
  • Instills: The word "instills" suggests that the scientist is intentionally and purposefully introducing something into the AI model that indicates a manipulative action. This has psychological relevance to clickbait, as people are attracted to actions that go against their values or beliefs.
  • ChatGPT: "ChatGPT" refers to the AI model, the goal of clickbait is to draw attention to a technological topic. It has a psychological relevance to clickbait because technology is a fascinating topic for many people.
  • Right-mindedness: "Right-mindedness" is a controversial topic and can evoke a strong emotional response from people, especially those affected by such views. This has a psychological relevance for clickbait, as controversial topics can attract readers' attention.
  • On: The word "on" here is an unremarkable word, but it has psychological clickbait relevance because it suggests a kind of mystery and secret and can keep readers interested.
