Today's WORD on Journalism

good reminder“It’s difficult to find a female reporter who hasn’t been the target of online hate mail for doing their job, from comments that their reporting is fake news to rape and death threats.

“‘When I share some of the notes that I get in my DMs and inboxes with my male colleagues, they are stunned because they cannot imagine somebody going there, somebody attacking you for the way you look or for the vile thoughts they might have about you or for your roles as a wife and as a mother,’ said CBS White House correspondent Weijia Jiang.” . . .

“Female reporters describe online harassment as a ‘troll network’ and something you ‘just get numb to.’ . . . The mental toll can be a huge burden, especially for journalists who need to stay on social media throughout the day to do their jobs.”

—Alex Gangitano and Julia Manchester, reporters, “Online harassment is ugly and routine for women in journalism,” The Hill, March 24, 2021
