Unbias the News - Why diversity matters for journalism
Diversity is not about political correctness. It’s about quality journalism. In journalism, white, male, Western voices still dominate and are often privileged over others, which means that we are not getting the whole story, or the most accurate one. At Hostwriter, we asked journalists to tell us about the barriers they face in their field and potential ways to fix them. We received stories from colleagues around the globe - from Germany to Brazil, Tajikistan to the Philippines, and China to the U.S. - that directly address the challenges to making journalism more diverse in ways that are surprising, funny and sometimes infuriating. The result is a field guide to unbiasing the newsroom and a launchpad for a new kind of journalism that looks more like the society it serves.
