New Report Shows American News Media Still Dominated By White Men
Julie Burton, president of WMC, broke down their find-ings in the report’s introduction: Women, who are more than half the population, are assigned to report stories at a substantially lower rate than men. In evening broadcast news, women are on-camera 32 percent of the time; in print news, women report 37 percent of the stories; on the Inter-net, women write 42 percent of the news; and on the wires, women garner only 38 percent of the bylines.
