Everyday is a new experience for me, I am always learning. Today I learned how the media slickly misrepresents or even under-represents certain groups of people or ideas. Misrepresentation is portraying a group or idea in a false manner that may not be true to all . A common group of people that are misrepresented are Muslim people, whom are often affiliated with the attacks of September 11th. Under-representation is not representing a group or idea to the full compasity or to the exact manner. This could be done by a picture. I learned through KFAI, that people such as the late Trevyn Martin and lively Andrew Zimmerman, have pictures that under-represent them. Furthermore, the pictures that are posted of them in the news are not the best possible. I learned all this today, through the KFAI Youth Initiative Program!
