DO WE NEED AFFIRMATIVE ACTION FOR JOURNALISTS?: Apparently so. Only a paltry seven percent of journalists surveyed are Republican. I’m sure Eric Holder or the EEOC will be appalled by this lack of diversity and initiate disparate impact threats forthwith. Unfortunately, as much of a discrete and insular minority Republican (or conservative) journalists are, they aren’t a “protected class” under our Constitution or civil rights laws. Ideological diversity isn’t the “kind” of “diversity” our civil rights laws protect– as Condoleeza Rice and other conservatives on campus have found out.
