Young 'resent negative images'
Teenagers are annoyed by negative stereotyping, says survey
Young people are complaining about a diet of negative news media stories about them in a research project from the National Children's Bureau.
The survey of young people's attitudes claimed that the media had a highly skewed view of their experiences.
They felt they were usually depicted in terms of crime, sex and drugs - with the only positive images coming from exceptional cases such as sports stars.
An overwhelming majority thought that young people were depicted negatively.
