Can someone summarize what this all about in details 

Oct 17th, 2017

This is a documentary that provides a great historical and contemporary analysis of the presentation of various marginalized groups on television. The film demonstrates how members of the working class are often depicted negatively in the media in the service of preventing the development of a class consciousness. Negative media depictions of African Americans, gay men and women are also explored. The film is great for stimulating conversation about stereotypes perpetuated by prime time television. 

It’s a powerful documentary, illuminating the hidden agendas lurking in the depictions of the characters held out by corporate media.

The documentary was produced in 2005 and narrated by Ed Asner, and is based on the work of Pepi Leistyna, Associate Professor of Applied Linguistics Graduate Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston. He’s also the author of a book on the same topic
