Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Pippa Norris and Female Experts

I was reading the NPR ombudsman blog recently and there was a post about the lack of female experts and sources on NPR, supposedly the last bastion of objectivity and impartiality in the media which (unfortunately) means progressive these days. I’ve added a few links on the side for those regular readers who are keeping […]
