It's probably why sociopaths are so successful at being in the film industry, because they know just the way to act, or just the way to frame and organize a shot to invoke maximum emotional response.Yeah, it's called Hollywood.
Not joking. Do some study on cinematography. There's an entire industry devoted to getting the audience to experience the right emotion at the right time. So they have it down to a science, the camera angles, the lighting, what's in focus, what's out of focus, the surroundings in frame, the very sequence of images to induce the emotion they want in the audience.
(That's what makes bad movies so much fun. They're either incompetent or rushed, so they can't pull off their emotional goals. This leads to the laughter in the audience because the conscious mind can see what the emotion is supposed to be but the film failed to convey.)
The media knows how to use that process.
