“Diversity is not about political correctness. It’s about quality journalism.” For Unbias the News: Why Diversity Matters for Journalism, 31 reporters spanning the globe, from Brazil to Tajikistan, were asked to write about barriers to greater diversity and inclusion in the newsroom. The result is a collection of eye-opening, personal and refreshing takes on how journalism needs to change to reflect our society.
For members of the media interested in regaining public trust and telling better, more accurate stories to their audience, taking another look at diversity is essential. This book will help people recognize their own blind spots: what stories they are emphasizing and which they may be neglecting to tell at all.
The book – published by Hostwriter
