Media portrays us how?

The media is known for portraying men and women as flawless and skinny. This has been going on for ages and ages and has always seemed to work. It is shown in ways such as commercials, movies, songs, billboards, etc. However, lately I have not noticed that many things that have advertised this. A while back, Dove, came out with a video in fast forward motion of how they edited a women who looked fairly average into a skinny flawless super model using forms of photoshop. I think this was a great way to show the midi how fake everything can be and maybe even help society deal with our addiction to media.
