Today is the day the obsession with diversity counting comes home to roost at liberal websites.

Bring out the bag of popcorn.

The NY Times Public Editor bemoans that only about one-third of the reporters are women, Still Talking About It: ‘Where Are the Women?’

“We’re acutely aware,” [Janet Elder, deputy managing editor] said. “It’s a problem here and it’s an industry-wide problem.” At The Times, she said, about a third of the roughly 400 reporters are women.

We have that beat easily. Look at the 12 regular contributors (including me) in the sidebar — fully half are women.

BREAKING – LEGAL INSURRECTION LOOKS MORE LIKE AMERICA’S GENDERS THAN THE NY TIMES.

Bring out the large bucket of popcorn.

The ever-liberal The American Prospect notes that liberal publications are very, very white, The Unbearable Whiteness of Liberal Media:

If left-leaning publications value diversity, why don’t they have any?

…. Nearly 40 percent of the country is non-white and/or Hispanic, but the number of minorities at the outlets included in this article’s tally—most of them self-identified as liberal or progressive—hovers around 10 percent. The Washington Monthly can boast 20 percent, but that’s because it only has nine staffers in total, two of whom belong to minority groups. Dissent, like the Prospect, has one. Given the broad commitment to diversity in our corner of the publishing world, why is the track record so poor?

As to ethnic diversity, one of our regular contributors is more Native American than Elizabeth Warren. I’ll let you guess who. Which gives us ethnic/racial diversity equal to or better than many of the leading liberal publications:

BREAKING – LEGAL INSURRECTION LOOKS AS MUCH LIKE AMERICA’S ETHNICITY AS MANY LIBERAL PUBLICATIONS

Now can we just get back to work?
