How does your media product represent particular social groups?

Representation of a social group is how that group is presented in a form of Media; the main groups are gender, age, race and social class. The representations of these groups can cause some criticism from the Media in everyday life so as misrepresenting certain groups.  
Our Media product didn’t generally represent any social groups except for mid ages business men. They were portrayed as upper class, intellectual men who were confident and this showed authority over other characters although this may be argued. We showed the business men to be wearing designer suits to signify wealth and power. The business men were also portrayed to be mentally superior as they were able to keep calm in situations and act confidently.
