In a newly fashionable effort to quantify claims about how power is transmitted through words and images, Yana van der Meulen Rodgers and JingYing Zhang, of the College of William & Mary in Virginia, have analysed The Economist’s photographs. Their paper, â€œA Content Analysis of Sex Bias in International News Magazinesâ€, asks, first, how often are women portrayed compared with men? Second, how often are men and women depicted in a sexual way? For answers, they looked at all the issues of five news magazines, including The Economist, in 2000, and the photographs in The Economist in even-numbered years from 1982 to 2000.

Update: Fark is an enjoyable site, and I earn either money nor fame from this blog. But kidding aside, there are some things I really do oppose, including racism and homosexualism, Iraqi terrorists, the Saudis, North Korea, the isolationist Left. and public education.
