Why does the media often de-humanize people? Media always ALWAYS does this, whether it’s about a corrupt politician, a murderer, a vigilante, etc. Media nowadays deliver news that are sensationalized. They don’t deliver news in an objective perspective, it is always subjective. Is it because most media outlets are owned by private sectors? or did something happen to the news writers’ heads? Are the high ratings and the big advertisers worth more than delivering the truth? I ask more questions than I get answers. but seriously though, why?
