Missing the mark: what are journalists not covering?
Although technology has allowed coverage to expand through television, radio and the Internet, many stories still go unreported, both in the mainstream media and independent outlets.
New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof addressed the lack of coverage of public health issues, such as malaria, saying such topics are considered "unglamorous," even though they're incredibly important. Covering "politics and governments...feels like news, in a way that a million people dying annually of malaria does not," he wrote.
Readers commented on his post, calling for greater coverage of issues including maternal mortality, water purification and agriculture.
What ongoing issues do you think deserve more exposure? What topics are over-reported, in your opinion?
