Lack of equal coverage


Thursday, June 14, 2018

In Richie Davis’s May 24 coverage of the 1st Franklin Democratic Candidate Forum held on May 23, opinions of all candidates were cited except Francia Wisnewski, the only female minority candidate in the race. In fact, some candidates’ positions were mentioned several times.

The lack of coverage for all candidates could imply, at a minimum, implicit bias on the part of the reporter. Ms. Wisnewski has a public record of action, results and support for progressive causes over many years. Voters should know about her when they are deliberating about this important election.
