Yeah it seems like there are two types of profiling being discussed here. Profiling on the news can mean either showing a person's entire story and doing a profile on them almost like their Facebook page, or there's profiling that is for instance when a police officer racially profiles someone and pulls them over for being a person of color, or in the news when they show a suspects mugshot and share negative extraneous information about them eg they got a speeding ticket once and never returned that one book to the library.
