Washington Press Corps Diversity Low But Growing

AsianWeek, Posted: Jul 31, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Only 13 percent of the Washington daily newspaper press corps are journalists of color, according to a study on diversity by UNITY: Journalists of Color Inc. and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, AsianWeek reports. Asian Pacific American journalists have made the most progress proportionately in the Washington press corps since 2004, increasing from 1.9 percent to 3.2 percent of the total. The 2008 UNITY census shows “how much more work remains to be done in diversifying our newsrooms - particularly when it comes to covering the seat of power in this nation,” said Jeanne Mariani-Belding, president of the Asian American Journalists Association. The release of the study coincides with last week's UNITY 2008 convention in Chicago.
