Suicide, homicide and terrorism over-represented in terms of media coverage, big time!

If things were covered based on the actual % then we wouldn't be so scared of each other but the suicides would go up because we'd all be severely depressed. Don't have to worry about ISIS or immigrants when Cancer and Heart Disease are coming and they're playing for keeps!

same effect goes when people have to guess how many % of working people are jobs that are over represented in TV like Cops, lawyers, doctors, etc.

Ees normal, no?
