One controversial aspect about the world having an “All things STUPID about the news” to monitor and [censure] the news industry is that — its seductive journalism initiatives will help cast a light on how the industry uses White women to standardize beauty. Black and Brown women, as a result, have often either straightened or flattened their hairstyles to please White news industry executives. Yellow women have gone so far as to bleach their skin to look white, so globally, the upshot has had devastating effects on women’s psyche. Seductive journalism is not a myth — but rather a tool the news industry uses to aid in boosting its profit margins, as well as misleadingly cultivating female beauty standards. For many audiences, all they want is to see the news, not soft porn programming accompanied by content filtered as news.
