Harsh Words for the Media

Lost Remote: Media under fire for missing persons coverage “To be blunt, blond white chicks who go missing get covered and poor, black, Hispanic or other people of color who go missing do not get covered,” said Tom Rosenstiel, director of the Project for Excellence in Journalism. “You’re more likely to get coverage if you’re attractive than if you’re not.”

Wow. Rough, but unfortunately most likely true. Not sure what can be done about this.
