I’m going to try introducing a few weekly features for this blog to help keep things organized and to help keep myself on task. Instant Replay will be a feature designed to study parity, which quite literally in terms of sports, means an equal playing field for all.
In the case of newspapers and the media, parity means equal coverage of something and in this blog’s case, parity will mean equal coverage of men and women in sports.
I plan to examine the teams, athletes, and sources used in stories. I also will look at who is writing the stories, shooting the photographs and who is in the pictures – because what is parity if it’s not on the other side of the pen, computer or camera as well.
