PostSubject: Jurassic Headlines   Mon Jul 11, 2016 9:34 pm

We all watch the Jurassic movies to see the story through the eyes of the people who are right in the thick of it: the scientists, the Park visitors, the castaways, the conspirators. But if we were all in the JPverse, the odds are we wouldn't be Grant or Malcolm or Sattler, we probably wouldn't be Owen or Claire. We'd probably be just the regular people doing our thing and making our way. So, how would we hear about the events of the Jurassic story?

Headlines.

Whether they'd be newspaper, magazine, television, internet, or otherwise, we'd be hearing about all of this through the news media. Would we get an accurate picture of events? Would the story be unbiased? Would we have any real clue as to what happened on those islands? The answer to all of those questions is Probably Not! But it's still fun to imagine how the general public in-universe sees and hears about the story we know like the back of our hands.

So imagine! Imagine what you, as a normal person in the JPverse, would hear about the dinosaurs, the parks, the mysterious goings-on. How would they be reported in your country? During that point in time? In that particular media? Go crazy with it!

I think personally the Jurassic World incident would have been covered extensively on Facebook and twitter long before any one had the news media footage. People would be recording live already probably from the park out of boredom probably. Also once they were safe, the guests would have been updating social media from the hotel.

Everyone would have seen what happened in JW, exactly like Sickle said.
It would be a day to remember, of course.

Sensationalism + ignorant ppl all over saying "Oh so many things happening in our country and you're worried with this park? Fuck those ppl".

I have the feeling that post-JP, pre-TLW, Malcolm's breaking his nondisclosure agreement created a really popular conspiracy theory. Headlines like "Dinosaurs Cloned on Pacific Island, Scientist Says" would have been the craze for a few months, then as people moved on to the next thing, conspiracy theorists would keep looking into it despite being labeled as nutcases. They'd create a major headache for InGen. It'd probably get referenced on conspiracy-hunter-type TV shows.

Hell, X-Files started the September after the Isla Nublar incident, it'd probably reference Malcolm's "conspiracy theory."

That's very interesting!

I imagine also people making fun of the conspiracy theories, to find only a few years later that it was all true, with the San Diego incident.

San Diego incident would bring a lot of debate in the whole world.
Imagine: what once was just a conspiracy theory about an island with dinosaurs, suddenly becomes a reality, with a T-Rex loose on San Diego under the eyes of many (and probably some footage filmed by someone), with the confirmed existence of an island with dinosaurs, and a park disaster happened years before.
The lives of the Nublar incident survivors would change drastically. People like Grant, Sattler, or even the kids, they would be stalked to know infos, scoops, etc...
Malcolm would become a super star. Grant, Malcolm, etc would publish books to tell the story without being stalked by media and people. The books would sell millions of copies.
Common people would be incredibly curious to see the dinosaurs, to find out the story of Jurassic Park, and the idea of a just a restricted place, left untouched by man, would be too interesting not to visit.
2001 incident would make the debate grow up again, until the decision to make an actual theme park, so people will stop speculating, but they will see the dinosaurs and everything about this new discovery in the world of science.
Of course many would criticize the idea of the park, not only because of the respect towards died people (both in Nublar, Sorna and San Diego incidents), but also to leave the island untouched my man interference.
But the theme park idea would have happened, no matter what: the profit from an attraction like that would be too high not to take the occasion. Hammond himself realized that before dying, so he assured to give the park to a man he really trusted, a man who would have cared about the animals, and not just about the money. Simon Masrani was the right person, so he became the new owner of the park.

Jurassic World opened in 2005 and got stellar amount of profit. With the rise of social networks, people would make trends about it, memes, YouTube would be full of videos from the park visits. Every new attraction in the park would probably get the headlines on newspapers, at least for the first years.
Again, many people would still debate whether or not the idea of the park is a right thing to do, ethically. Luckily, the charismatic and humble personality of Masrani would often manage to give the park an actual right reason to exist, without it being only a speculation for profit and disrespectful towards dead people in any way.
Hammond statue, various days Masrani dedicated to the memory of those who died in the past incidents, a humble tagline on the park brochure "Jurassic World exists to remind us how very small we are", and various activities made by Masrani not related to the park, but very philantrophistic, would make Masrani a very beloved man in the whole world, and give the park enough support to go on without problems.

The Indominus new attraction would have probably be predicted to be the most successful attraction so far, but of course it didn't go well.
The 2015 disaster would be on every headlines in all countries of the world. A sort of #PrayForNublar thing would trend on Twitter, many shocking videos would surface in the web, and that day would change the world forever.
The confirmed death of Simon Masrani would be shocking for many people, who will want to know the more direct responsibles of the incident.

The incident of the iRex, I think, might have a major impact on the GMO debate. Plenty of people are already against the idea of genetic modification, and seeing such science create a literal monster that kills multiple people out of sheer aggression would certainly add to the "against" party. iRex would become the poster child for people against genetic modification.

It might also fuel the anti-intellectualist argument, unfortunately, with people using its creation and the incident as leverage against science and experimentation. With the American presidential election one year away at the time of the incident, I'm sure it would come up at some point.

I also have this thought that, because the pterosaur attack was probably filmed, and Zara was carried into the air in a very visible area, her death was probably caught on camera. While the video was quickly taken down from most websites, it still circulates around, and everyone's seen it. She has one of the most public deaths in history. Most people just know her as "the woman that died at Jurassic World," and when Claire and the other JW staff found out about this they began an online campaign to end Zara's anonymity with the #HerNameWasZara hashtag.

A number of feminist blogs used the Zara thing as blog fodder, what with the fight to make her name known and to commemorate her for something other than how she died.

Not only that, but anti-science shit would be all over too. Ignorant ppl who think they know all putting scientists in lava and saying shit about them and how they shouldn't do this or that. (Like we don't have those meatbags already in real world).

I can already imagine the media putting Wu's pic with a newly born baby I.rex in his hands with a sensationalistic title under it.

Conspiracy things like Iluminati or "New World Order" and ppl saying that there's eugenists trying to reduce the human population and those stuff.
Some ppl saying Masrani pretended to be a "good" man but behind the doors he was plotting with the most rich ppl to construct a new world order and those stuff.

Ohhhh, yes. I can only imagine how much more outrage the possibility of iRex having human DNA would cause in the real world. If you thought movie fans were angry about that probably being the case, imagine how their in-universe counterparts would react! I can already see some crazies blogging about how InGen is trying to engineer a reptilian-humanoid master race and iRex was the prototype.

And the thing is, that isn't even as "out there" as it should be. It would be technically possible for Wu to make reptilian-humanoid hybrids (this was literally almost the actual plot); if a dinosaur and cuttlefish can make stable DNA, a human would be no big deal.

People would be much more likely to believe conspiracy theories that involved genetics, too. Especially during the late '90s, right after the San Diego incident proved that Malcolm wasn't lying and that dinosaurs really had been created.

I wonder what happens to the palontologists all over the world. I mean, the JW animals are NOT 100% real, so they could still give their job a value, but at the same time we hear Claire saying "We've learned more from genetics than a century of digging up bones". So, maybe technology overcome the digging activities?

I can imagine paleontologists desperately asking people on the internet (especially on blogs like Tetrapod Zoology) to keep supporting real paleontological science and not just the Jurassic World attraction. But, of course, most people don't keep up with paleontology even in the real world where we haven't cloned any Mesozoic life (however genetically impure), so I can imagine that in a world that has developed this kind of technology, paleontologists would be even more ignored.

On the Jurassic World viral site wasn't Brian Switek the in-universe advisor for Jurassic World?

That's somethinh I've thought about too, and was somewhat disappointed that the film didn't spend time making a theme of. It's a perfect kairotic moment to use GMO themes in Jurassic World, but like it was for computing technology in the turn of the decade '80s/'90s. I felt like Jurassic World NOT making of theme of GMOs was a huge missed opportunity.

That's a pity indeed, I agree. But in-universe, that would be surely a big controversy
