How Presentation Affects Representation - #DwhellOnIt Ep. 56

📺 - tinyurl.com/6cyw8k39

🗣 - "Taylor Lakhryst was an undecided voter who participated in a #CBC program called Face to Face during last year's federal election campaign. While being on the show gave her a chance to ask questions of a party leader, she felt CBC's production choices spoiled the experience by making her appear inept and powerless."

"While you expressed #Gratitude for the #Opportunity to provide visibility on the subject of abuse toward the 2SLBGTQIA+ #Community , you felt that #CBC made choices which diluted your appearance. It left you feeling, if not misrepresented, then underrepresented."

It feels as if #CBC chose to represent me as what I interpret as inept, powerless, and stuck with candy-coated concerns because who I am isn't palatable enough for Canadians who can't cope that #people such as myself strive to inspire and create #change .

#social platforms highlighted my segment as being of the utmost importance on an issue that had not been placed front and centre in the campaign until my appearance.

I continued to focus much of my argument on the treatment of my introductory video. I emphasized how problematic it was that this video highlighted "my love for #Sports and karaoke" while omitting more substantive #Comments about the importance of placing responsibility for bigotry and hate-based abuse on the abusers rather than the victims.

"I'm an undecided voter because" and "Let's be #leaders …" were extracted from two completely different sections of what I provided. #CBC created that line and not me, and I'm not sure if that is conducive to "accuracy."

"You stated that you followed all the directives given to you in advance by producers, yet you were the only one of the four participants given less than 40 seconds of airtime."

"You also reiterated that #CBC exercised poor judgment when it failed to include your exchange about pronouns with #ErinOToole .”

#CBC watered me down and presented me with the safest, most palatable and most comfortable image they could build based on the information I provided.

"Your complaint is, first and foremost, a reminder that the stories journalists tell are not really "theirs." They are the stories of real #people with real lives, ambitions, and concerns."

Journalistic Standards and Practices covers much ground regarding ethical #Journalism but doesn't cover specific circumstances.

"There is more debate to be had about editing your introductory video … it's clear that those producers took two risks with your video."

"On your frustration that the #question you asked on the show was "negotiated," … I worried it meant that programmers were forcing you to ask the questions that they wanted."

Am I the only one

I sustained a TBI 25 years ago and am now in a situation where I am without any support system. Have no contact with anyone, am completely paralyzed by being on overload emotionally, mentally and cognitively and am in a very bad situation. Am I the only one totally alone? If I am, then what,? I only could do things with people I knew who monitored me and enabled even doing the most simple day to day things. #TBI #social -disorder #Depression #PTSD

Help with socially anxious friend. #Anxiety #social #akward

A good friend of mine suffers from bad social anxiety. Every time I ask her to hang out, she gets super awkward and ignores me for a while out of embarrassment for the way she responded. I’ve always just given her time to come around and start talking again, but I feel like I need to address this with her since this has become a pattern and I feel horrible about how bad she feels about herself. What is a guy to do to help get her through these awkward phases? #Anxiety #Depression #Awkward #seekinghelp
