Upcoming story assignment by Mac Pham

My topic for the digital journalism assignment will be about intersectional representation in the media. It’s definitely a topic that is relevant, not to just journalism, but also relevant to the current media. The goal is for proper representation of people with intersectional identities. Including intersectional identities in the media is one thing, but it is another thing to have proper representation on television, which is the next step that media producers must take. I took the class “JMS250: Intersectional Representation in the Media” and it really opened my eyes and gave me an understanding of inclusion being the bare minimum.

This is a topic that I’m passionate about. The reality television shows give people with intersectional identities to represent themselves with no script, they can just be themselves. I watched a couple of reality television shows from CBS. One CBS show that I watch, called “The Amazing Race,” has done a great job not only providing a diverse cast, but also involving positive portrayals in their edits. Another CBS show that I watch, called “Big Brother,” has had historically poor diversity in its casting but they are making progress to not only inclusion, but also representing intersectional identities. With an understanding of inclusion and representation, I understood the lack of representation on television shows that I have been watching for years.
