I’m guessing most of you are aware by now that a TV journalist was sexually assaulted while covering the protests in Egypt recently.
The assault and reactions to it have received a lot of coverage, and I’ve been reading quite a bit about it, lately.
Look at what a writer for Poynter had to say about this, and think about what John Schneller talked about last week in our framing discussion. The questions we ask steer us toward a particular story. This piece describes the often unconscious ways we bias our coverage of sexual assault.
What do you think of what Julie Moos has to say in the Poynter piece?
