Media Critic Overlooks “Men’s Issues”

“Though both articles quote women, neither quotes them saying that women gained that Romney connection. Only men seem to believe that women felt that way. This is ridiculous. In fact, why are men quoted at all in this article about women? Are there no female Republican strategists? In the entire country?” [Vanasco/CJR]

Oh, commenters. In response to a Columbia Journalism Review “Minority Reports” column on how “coverage of Ann Romney’s RNC speech said she connected with women, but no female voices in the stories verified the claim,” a commenter complains “Since women are a MAJORITY in this country…Why is a column ostensibly devoted to ‘how the mainstream media covers social minorities’ talking about women? Shouldn’t we be talking about how the mainstream media covers men’s issues?”
