con't: sometimes at least with more liberal policies, the gov't wasn't allowed to say whatever it wanted about entire groups who had no political involvement in policies that affecting their own lives. They were virtually invisible from the media. Had no invitations to speak or engage in the conversations, even if they were the subject of it.
Only graphic negative and frightening images were portrayed, further fostering stereotypes. To this day, that still happens. And TownHall is just as guilty of doing more of the same. Depending on who is the easiest they can get away with stereotyping.
