The Reilly Center sponsors's Manship School doctoral candidate Tim Klein’s project on “Race, Crime and Louisiana Reporting.” The study analyzes news portrayals of race and crime in Louisiana. He is comparing crime rates in Baton Rouge and New Orleans with news coverage of crime from those areas and will look for new ways of making crime coverage more representative. In addition to submitting manuscripts to journals, he will share his results directly with the newsrooms he is studying.
