Last night, Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Nation Bullpen" went up.
Today on Tell Me More (NPR), the guests were Spencer Overton, Hans von Spakovsky, Sylvia Ann Hewlett, Robert Rodriguez, Laura Sessions Stepp and Carla Franklin.
Friday, I noted that a segment of Tell Me More ticked me off.
I didn't explain why. That's because I thought Ava and C.I. were working on something (they were) and I was going to slide the segment over to them so they could include it.
They said "no."
They said, "You brought this in, you're writing it with us."
So we wrote "How NPR Silences Women (Ann, Ava and C.I.)" yesterday.
It's a good piece and it was so nice of them to include me but, honestly, they could have just run with the segment and tied into the one they were planning to write about.
Make a point to read it. We're noting a segment that claimed to let us hear women speak (but really didn't) and a report on a woman with a lot of negative things said about her -- if all the people in the segment hadn't been men, would she still have been judged as harshly?
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
