Journalists spoke about media coverage of minorities and minority issues, as well as minority representation on television, radio and print media. Among the topics they addressed were race and gender issues in American society, fairness and accountability standards for journalists, violence in the media, and the recent controversy that led to the firing of television and radio personality Don Imus for inappropriate remarks about the Rutgers women’s basketball team. Reverend Sharpton moderated the panel discussion and questions from the audience. close
