This paper addresses two questions regarding gender and race problems in mass media. First, the paper questions how women and minorities are depicted in mass media, and how they are represented, compared to the white majority. Secondly, the paper considers how the media covers gender and race. The paper concludes by stating that government needs to provide legislation to even the playing field of who and how gender and race are covered in the media.

From the Paper:

"There are two problem areas within the mass media: One, how they portray women and various ethnic and racial groups, and, second, how females and minorities are represented as anchors, reporters, spokesmen, reporters and editors. Yet, if the balance does not seem quite equal, it is still fair to state that the government should not become legislatively involved. Our governments, state, provincial, local and national, are already far too involved in our daily lives- social as well as economic. There are Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity laws on the books, Further intrusion should be avoided."
