In my first-year JOURNALISM FUNDAMENTALS course, we discuss the importance of diversity and inclusions in relation to fair, balanced and accurate media coverage. This is sometimes called "The Mirror Principle". Much discussion currently revolves around whether it is possible to reflect reality through filtered information. Media concentration, commercialization and mass audiences combine to distort the reflection in the mirror. As a result, diversity and inclusions is an ongoing and important discussion in the field of journalism.
