In the WaPo today, columnist Donna Britt writes of the “Journalists of Color” convention:
“it’s so important for the journalists who report the news to be as varied as the population they cover. At some point, it seems, diversity shouldn’t be a goal. It should be a reality.”
This about a gathering of “journalists” who gave Democratic partisan John Kerry a standing ovation and repeated huzzahs. From a gathering of reporters in an industry where, according to the New York Times, 80% of their fellow employees are Democrats. From a gathering in Washington—where journalists back Kerry over Bush by a 12-1 margin.
Diversity sounds great, Donna! So…when do we get it?
