Should Ethnicity/Minority Manner?
What would happen if News Stations mentioned the ethnicity/gender of individuals the cover during news? Is it necessary to let viewers know the racial divisive or discrimination that is quite apparent throughout the country? News Station should depending on the story indeed let viewers know the ethnicity or gender of those who they cover. We should not broadly claim that all stories News Station cover should disclose this information every single time.
The appropriate time for News Station to disclose the ethnicity or gender of those who they cover when the story pertains to discrimination. For example, if a News Station cover a story of a Muslim American leaving the United States of America because he felt threatened by those around him because of his religion. In this case News Station should let the viewers know the individual leaving the country is a Muslim, if they don’t the viewers will not understand why this man felt threatened. And these kind of news coverage also does a service to end discrimination throughout the country, letting people know discrimination is indeed destructive.
The inappropriate times for News Station to disclose the ethnicity or gender of those they cover is a crime scene scenario. If someone does a crime and the news station states it was because of their religion or their gender, which clouds the real reasoning.
