“Race & The Media” Topic On-Hand at Press Club

From clarence page

Chicago Tribune’s Clarence Page, CNN’s Leslie Sanchez and WaPo’s Amar Bakshi were on hand at the National Press Club last week to discuss “Race & the Media.” The panel was moderated by Ed Gordon and hosted by the Loop 21 and UNITY: Journalists of Color, Inc.

Results from a recent survey of journalists of color conducted by Loop 21 and UNITY were also released at this event. From the release, 92% believed mainstream media was still not effectively covering race relations, and 45% of that majority attributed the cause to a lack of diversity in newsrooms. The majority of these respondents also said MSM did a “fair to poor” job covering “issues of interest to people of color during the 2008 presidential campaign.”

Complete survey results can be found here.
