Inthe Washington Examiner, Salena Zito writes about journalism in today’s America.

Our industry is in a downward spiral. Part of the problem is our lack of diversity in newsrooms — not just on race and gender, but also in the place and experiences reporters come from. We need more reporters who went to state schools, come from working-class backgrounds and don’t hold that background in contempt, who are pro-life, sit in a pew regularly, and own a gun or two.
