John Oliver on how crime reporting keeps us scared

Reporting on crime is the bulk of what media outlets share with us. The reporting keeps us in fear, frequently relies on bad sources, and perhaps isn't even happening, but we stay scared. Crime reporting reinforces negative stereotypes and almost always portrays people differently based on their skin color or name. John Oliver dissects the issues in crime coverage, and tho I laughed a lot, I don't think I feel better.
