Why Media Representations Matter

Yup.

Media Representations of the Homeless

Stereotypes in the media often focus on the actions of a person who is homeless instead of explaining the structural causes of homelessness. In examining the cycle of poverty we, as media professionals, can begin to acknowledge that public policies and structural issues are largely responsible for the increasing populations living in poverty and experiencing homelessness in the U.S.

Journalists often emphasize and rely on common stereotypes of the homeless community to characterize individuals. Media professionals should work to humanize the people living in poverty. By neglecting to address problems that lead to homelessness journalists are telling a one sided story of an entire population. For example, media coverage will often use negative characterizations such as substance abuse, aggressive, unruly, homeless people flooding the streets.

Instead of discussing issues such as: “lack of affordable housing” – “lack of shelters” – “lack of facilities for the mentally ill” – “lack of…

Ireland’s ‘New Poor’ Need Food Banks to Eat

I remember the Famine time very clearly – it made a big impression on me when I read it as history at school in The Netherlands. At about the same time there was some blight or other on potatoes grown locally, and I saw this grown up guy getting all panicky in a shop in case there would be no more potatoes. I am pretty sure that by that time it was post-war and there was food being imported from USA, but I have never forgotten that poor man.

Homeless in Nottinghamshire

We could all learn about the narrow divide between being a homeowner with possessions to spare and suddenly – or at least it feels like that – Nothing! Be compassionate and give people a helping hand.

Joe Blogs

Imagine this: due to the breakdown in your relationship and business partnership, you descend into debt, and then find yourself in rent arrears. Helpless to do anything about the debt and arrears you are then evicted from your home. You end up homeless on the street with your three children.  The local Council initially views you as intentionally homeless and therefore not eligible for re-housing help. This is what happened this year to a local Nottingham woman.

She told us her story at the Health and Wellbeing Board’s Stakeholder Network meeting at Carlton’s Richard Herrod Centre on Nov 10th. She said that what had happened to her could have happened to any of the 70 odd people sitting in the hall.

I don’t think that there was anybody in the hall who was not shocked by the appalling implications of that statement.

The subject of the event was homelessness, and…

That Time a Homeless Guy’s Death Was Noticed By An Entire Nation

We are living in a heartless society, or at least it appears that way. It is probably true to say that a smaller community would notice more and more quickly, but then may not be able to do much to help each other.

“Affidavit” written by stalker Ranjit Shamsher Jung Bahadur Rana of Adelaide, South Australia. Answered by infuriated mother turned cyber-activist after many, many years of having her daughter stalked by this disturbed creature, in person, and eventually on the internet.  One good thing?  I have had to familiarize myself with the internet – somewhat – in order to defend my family.  Lots of unpleasant things though – and some of that consists of having one’s existence defamed and libelled in every way imaginable.  Even though everything Ranjit Rana says is TOTAL B-LLSH-T, eventually it becomes unbearable and gets corrected.  This is written for ALL THOSE PEOPLE HARASSED BY RANJIT RANA, BOTH IN AUSTRALIA AND OVERSEAS.  Remember, you do not have to do or say anything to or about Rana to become victimised by Rana.  It is enough to be a tall blond female for whom he develops a manic attraction.  As not one single girl or woman has ever responded to Rana, and as he hates women in general, his attachment difficulties can be “positive” where you get bombarded with “love” letters, or negative where you receive even more “hate” letters.  A putrid evil little snake with a major personality problem.  He plays the “disability” and “race” card at every opportunity and clogs the justice system with his outrageous and ridiculous claims.
