Sometimes, readers ask us about things they see in social media that relate to articles in the Chicago Tribune.
Earlier this month, we heard from a reader about a graphic that she had seen online. The graphic was headlined “Silenced: Gender Gap in Election Coverage.” The source was 4thEstate.net. Text with the graphic concluded that “men are much more likely to be quoted on their subjective insight in newspapers and on television. This pattern holds true across all major news outlets, as well as on issues specifically concerning women.” The women’s issues it focused on were abortion, birth control and planned parenthood.
