News Media is White Male-Centric

If you’ve ever wondered why the news doesn’t reflect your thoughts (if you are non-white and/or female) this study pretty much explains it all. http://www.theopedproject.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=817&Itemid=149.

In traditional media, only 20% of Op Eds are written by women.  There is no question but that we need more women and minorities writing the news, producing news programs, and being publishers and editors of news sources.  Until the makeup of various media sources changes how all of us view the world will continue to be shaped by white men.
