VIPs and Her Media Peers Cheer Robin Roberts’ Coming Out

A Dec. 26 list of “10 journalists to watch in 2014” by Dylan Byers of Politico listed no journalists of color and such choices as showman Glenn Beck and celebrity relative Ronan Farrow of MSNBC, both thin on journalism credentials. But critics of the list pointed to “12 Of The Smartest Women of Color On Twitter” from September on alldigitocracy.org; TV Week’s “12 To Watch In TV News [PDF],” which included Roland Martin of TV One, Hari Sreenivasan of PBS and Alicia Menendez of Fusion; “Journalists—Of Color!—To Watch In 2014” by Gene Demby of NPR’s “Code Switch”; and, spotlighting news sources rather than journalists, “15 Fiercest Sisters of 2013” from fierceforblackwomen.com. In November, Matt Wilstein of mediaite.com listed “The 50 Sexiest in TV News,” including Ann Curry, Sanjay Gupta, Tamron Hall, Van Jones, Don Lemon, Betty Liu, Richard Lui, Menendez, Natalie Morales, Byron Pitts, Carl Quintanilla, Jorge Ramos, Robin Roberts, Troy Roberts, Touré and Alex Wagner.
