A. Yes. However, not enough has been done to portray minorities accurately and fairly on television or within the media. While there has been some improvement, minorities are still not fully represented and as a result are stereotyped and caricatured. A truly diverse media allows for the voices of minorities, women, seniors, people with disabilities, and all Americans to be heard and accurately depicted. This means that all sectors of society must participate in media outlets through media ownership and employment.
