What you are pointing out is what is wrong with the media today. It isn't enough for them to just report the news. Nope, they think that they need to "educate" people about the news and that means using an narrative to tell the "stories" if you will. So, they put people into groups, identifying them by their race, culture, and religion. This gives the impression to many people that the groups that the particular criminal, etc represents adheres to the same beliefs (ie. all Muslims are terrorists, all Mexicans are taking jobs, all Catholic priests are pedophiles, etc). This is why it is so important to sift through what they are saying and ignore it. Never get your history and information from the news. They are almost always lying.
