"Mass media promotes racism and creates stereotypes, that build up a concept of unsupported discrimination and hate and against a certain community or group of people.
"Media generalize communities, and convince an audience that everyone in a certain group is the same
"Media distorts racial minorities who frequently are portrayed in news. Studies commissioned by the National Association of Hihat group is just the same spanic Journalists have found that only about 1 percent of the 12,000 stories aired yearly on the three network TV evening newscasts focus on Latinos or Latino issues -- and roughly 80 percent of these stories "portray Latinos negatively," often on subjects like crime, drugs and "illegal" immigrants.
"Media tells us half story. It mobilizes people to hate a community from defending themselves. One example of this is how USA invades middle east for its oil. Then the news tell us that Arabs are terrorists for revealing for protecting their country. I don"t justify their bombs, but US is way worse, and that what media don"t show.

Kenneth_Stokes I think his argument is that "mass media make people to be 'stereotype' through their generilisation on some issues"

I do agree with pipegon99

Is this a question, a statement, or a debate? What are you contending?

Good luck to whoever provides a good counter-argument, because I don't see any.
