Which medium presented the topic in a more unbiased manner?

I hate gays >.< They r just soooooo famine and filthy & i hope god punish them! #Gays
The medium that presented the topic in a more unbiased manner is TV.
The medium that presented the topic in a more unbiased manner is TV. The reason why TV presented the topic in a more unbiased manner because of the length and target audience. For instance, the video was about two minutes and eight-teen seconds, and it did not had most details that were mainly needed. In addition, the medium is also taken by target audience because the video is mainly seen by parents whom lost their child due by suicide, homosexuals, LGBT teens. Since it has less people who view the video it becomes more unbiased. In conclusion, this showed that television presented the topic in a more unbiased manner due to length and target audience.
Answered question
People judge gay, lesbian and bisexual people because of negative religious influence. They are taught to condemn people who are different.Most churches and religious people are extremely self-righteous people. To continue, the most important thing is the ability to fall in love and how awful life would be if we did not have that. Sometimes people don't agree with it until their own child comes out of the closet. Additionally, may people judge homosexuals because in the Bible it says that man was made for woman and woman for man. In conclusion,people are judge by their sexual preference because the religious nation think they have the mind of god and suggest they should discriminate whom does not follow what God or the Bible says.
IKR their f***s :D
