67. There is a pattern on DU..
News coverage about women who are not politicians is

routinely dismissed by the men here as "uninteresting"

or unworthy of more than five minutes coverage....Usually

they complain about continuing reports of "Missing white girls"

as not being "real news". Although I don't, in the above case,

dispute the racial disparity in reporting such cases,

I really doubt they'd be any more interested if it were women of color.

There's PLENTY of "non-news" news about men -- sports figures for instance -- and

I don't see any beefs about that here..

Don't believe me? Check out the profiles on this thread and

see if it's not the identified MALES who are bitching about their "boredom".
