‘Arizona Republic’ reporters issue demands for racial and ethnic diversity

By Ray Stern | Phoenix New Times 

A group of Arizona Republic reporters wants sweeping changes to improve racial and ethnic diversity in their newsroom.

Diversity in thought, maybe not so much.

The self-described majority of the newspaper’s reporters, a group made up of Arizona Republic Guild and Diversity Committee members, released their mission statement last week. The reporters’ demands include implementing a racially based hiring system, conducting a review of salaries they want to see made public, and dictating a special opinion column they want published in the paper. They’ve invited other journalists to add their names in support.
