Blind Spots
by Christopher Cheung
In this essay, Christopher Cheung explores how news is shaped by the people with the pen - right now, the majority of them are white. Our media is under a white gaze, and for news to truly reach its democratic potential the plurality of our BC communities need to be authentically represented in the media.

Tyee reporter Christopher Cheung is this year’s winner of the Dalton Camp Award for “Blind Spots” as the best essay on the link between media and democracy, presented by Friends of Canadian Broadcasting. Cheung also received the emerging excellence prize from Canada’s Digital Publishing Awards.
