What Often Goes Unsaid

September 2011
Nieman Reports;Fall2011, Vol. 65 Issue 3, p36
The author explores the racial dynamic and reinvention in U.S. newsrooms. A group of 35 women journalists, scholars and activists denounced an article by white reporter Mac McClelland about her trauma after witnessing violence and poverty in Haiti, saying it uses stereotypes in depicting Haitian men as lustful and violent. One of the issues facing African American journalists is the tendency of white editors to provide more financial resources and stories to pursue to white journalists.
