The influence of news

Wish I could find more info on this image but unfortunately Google is failing me on this one.

Such an interesting image, and I find this happening to so many people.

I guess this is an effect of only out of the ordinary stuff being on the news. If you have no frame of reference for a news story about a certain group or culture, it’s easy to let your assumptions be coloured by only hearing negative stories.
