If You're Wondering If News Is Biased, Here's Proof

This made me do a double take. What about you? 

It's disconcerting that some of the biggest issues in 2011 and 2012, which happen to be race-related, are being covered primarily by white reporters. I want people to look at this and realize, wait a minute — there IS bias in journalism. The things that we all care and read about are being influenced by the perspectives of people who may not even truly understand the full scope and depth of what they are writing about.

It's really important to be aware of this as you read the news each day — so please help me spread the word.

A stunning 93 percent of front-page election news stories are written by white reporters.
