Abstract:At President Obama's first press conference, television viewers saw the faces of more reporters of color who had not been visible before. That picture, coupled with Gwen Ifill, the moderator of PBS's "Washington Week" as well as the vice presidential debate, seemed to bode well for progress among journalists of color. But did it? Has there really been progress in creating a more diverse media? In this article, Wayne Dawkins comes to some surprising conclusions as he reports the good news—and the bad—on this topic.
