They are looking at 2012 election coverage and how many women are quoted compared to men. And since we've been hearing about the gender gap in the Presidential race, it would seem to mean that coverage, of at least that race if not many others, is badly skewed.
It's particularly telling how men are the predominant commenters on issues like abortion, birth control, etc. It makes me wonder about my own blog. How many of the sources I cite are male or female generated? In a lot of cases I just don't know.
A quick look at my Viddler videos shows a lot more male than female subjects. I didn't count, but I clearly need to pay more attention to the balance.
They discuss methodology but I don't understand enough to know how to check it. But even if their data is off by 10%, the imbalance is staggering. But given my own gender gap here (at least in the videos) I suspect they are pretty accurate.
