Media Interview?

Being IN the media, I honestly never thought about the premise behind an article published this month by the Pew Research Center.  It breaks down into demographics the sorts of people who tend to be intereviewed by local journalists.

Heck, when *I* was out in the field trying hard to just meet deadline,  it really didn’t matter who was at hand to be an interview subject, as long as they just witnessed the drug deal/car crash/shooting/getaway, etc.  THAT was the person I interviewed (as long as they were willing), and it really didn’t matter their gender, race, age, or education.  AVAILABILITY in the moment…that’s what mattered!

Media Bias?

Well, apparently…YES! (as hard as it is to believe!).  Pew Research is highly respected, and it turns out, older, white, educated men are most likely to land as the interview subject.  Hey!  That’s me!

Here’s the study by Pew Research
