Hostwriter’s new book, Unbias the News: Why diversity matters for journalism, is now available for sale in English!
The book, which has been called “refreshing” and “entertaining” by reviewers, encompasses views from 31 different journalists spanning the globe, from Brazil to Tajikistan, discussing barriers to greater diversity and inclusion in the newsroom.
The book features original illustrations by artist Moshtari Hilal, who was commissioned to create the works based on the articles in the book.
“Fighting for more diverse reporting is not a question of political correctness or patronage. It’s a question of quality,” writes Hostwriter CEO and co-founder Tabea Grzeszyk in the forward to the English edition.
The official book launch for Unbias the News will take place in Hamburg at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference 2019, where there will be readings of excerpts from the book, as well as a panel discussion featuring authors and editors.
“For members of the media interested in regaining public trust and telling better, more accurate stories to their audience, taking another look at diversity is essential. This book will help people recognize their own blind spots: what stories they are emphasizing and which they may be neglecting to tell at all,” says Unbias the News Editor-in-Chief Tina Lee.
