If ever there was an argument for the need for increased diversity in America's newsrooms, it is the recent coverage of Markoff. In fact, fewer minorities work in the news media now than 10 years ago, according to a recent report in .In an increasingly nonwhite America, you do have to wonder if blatantly biased news coverage of alleged criminals like Markoff have anything to do with one after another newspaper filing for bankruptcy or outright closing down.
