Should newsroom demographics be a faithful representation of the demographic served by the newspaper? Does race matter in a newsroom? In answering these questions, please refer explicitly to this week’s readings on “Diversity in the newsroom.” Whatever your take on this is, please do your best to go well beyond simply saying something like, “Well, what matters is that the reporter is a good reporter, not what race she is!” or “Of course! African-American journalists know best what the African-American community needs!” Explain your reasoning thoroughly.
