The Women’s Media Center announced the release of its 2013 Status of Women in the U.S. Media report Friday; it finds that the news media “remains staggeringly limited to a single demographic.”

Pure online sites, the report says, “have fallen into the same rut as legacy media. Male bylines outnumbered female bylines at four of six sites reviewed.”

Men’s bylines outnumbered women’s by a “nearly 3 to 1 margin’ in presidential-campaign coverage, the study found, and “Men were also far more likely to be quoted than women in newspapers, television and public radio.”
