5 facts about ethnic and gender diversity in US newsrooms
Pew Research Center
San Francisco Bay-area television station KTVU broadcast fake names for the pilots of the Asiana Airline flight that crashed July 6.

A similar issue was raised after a recent analysis found New York Times stories quoted 3.4 times as many male sources as female sources.
