Protests aren't what they look like on TV

Sarah Best

10th June 2020

This video from Vox highlights how the mass media is covering the protests in the United States.

Jason Johnson and Kainaz Amaria illustrate how many news channels present more dramatic, and often violent imagery to ensure that viewers keep watching.

This video could also be used for The Media unit (media representations of social class, ethnicity, processes of selection and presentation of the content of the news).
