This appears to show that the party is mainly after Winston and don't care as much about catching Julia as a thought criminal. At this point the reader is drawn into the book and awaits the conclusion of this important meeting. Maybe the reader is even more exited than Winston and Julia because he has followed their every steps from the beginning and want to see Winston and Julia become heroes by destroying the party and maybe discovering who Big Brother actually is. For Winston this seems probably impossible but the reader knows that anything can happen in a book so he gets captivated and is waiting for the final decision of O'Brien. As always in Oceania the people are being manipulated and in this case they make Winston and Julia believe that the brotherhood exists and we can see that Winston gets tricked and is ready to anything the party wants.

These so called “truthful” accounts are delivered in a similar way as the orchestrated scenes of movie; just as movies are created to induce a certain emotion or address a question, media coverage is meant to fuel paranoia and incite a desire for change which would benefit a minority of people. In Bernard Goldberg’s book Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News, he attempts to tackle the issue of liberal media bias in the large East-coast news organizations. In his narrative, Goldberg begins by explaining his current situation of exile from media coverage despite his 28 years of service.
Consequently, this excessive amount of censoring and perpetual revision of the past causes the memories of citizens to become vague and hazy; people become more willing to believe whatever the Party tells them. Because the Party exploits history to serve the own purposes, it uses the past to control the present and future as well (“Who controls the present, controls the past.
