    Default The media is trying to cast/put the singer in the bad light.

    1) The media is trying to cast/put the singer in the bad light so that he will lose popularity.

    2) The wage/salary i received is incommensurate with my workload.

    1. "Cast in a bad light"

    2. I would use "not commensurate," instead of "incommensurate," but the sentence is OK either way.
