Kurtz: Obama “Will Face a Press Corps Lacking in Minorities”

From today’s mediabistro.com Morning Newsfeed and Morning Media Menu:

The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz writes about the incoming White House press corps, which will be “mostly white” as usual.

“The advent of the Obama administration seems to underscore that racial progress has been uneven in a business that chronicles that very subject,” writes Kurtz.

Kurtz talks to NBC’s Washington bureau chief Mark Whitaker, who gives some insight about an apparent shake-up attempt at the network due to the push for a larger African American presence. Whitaker says he “has tried to lure NBC anchor Lester Holt to Washington, without success.”
