Media Ethics

I think the media does a really good job at skewing the truth about a certain topic. A lot of the times only part of the truth about a certain topic is being covered instead of providing the full story. When a white male is being convicted of a crime, the media talks about the individual in such a positive light, stating only the positive traits of that individual, whereas when a person of color is being convicted of a similar crime they are portrayed by the media as someone who was expected to such a thing, and that it was common for that individual to commit crimes.
