Week 4- Newspaper
By Esau Carpenter
I don’t think the gender or race of a source should be revealed unless the writer of the article has some reason to do so. If the information has no bearing on the story, then its simply useless information taking up a piece of the page. I believe having both sources and reporters from every background is key for solid, unbiased news. Differences like race and gender, although socially constructed, are real barriers that separate people day in and day out. In a perfect world a man would be able to see the world through the eyes of a woman and vice versa- but good luck finding some one like that.
