Week 4: Newspapers
By: Maddy Kelly
I believe that there should not have to be a rule that you have to include the gender or race of a person who is being quoted in a newspaper. I believe it is good to have the name of the person and possibly also the age of the person as well. I honestly don’t think having women and minority sources improve or hurt the quality of news. Although it is good to have a lot of variety of stories and sources in the paper, I don’t think we specifically have to identify each person so people will think the newspaper is remaining “equal” or “fair.” I see it as as long as it is being used to spread news then it should not matter the sex or race of a person.
