This, [The Daily Beast Article], isn't an outlier in the disparaging media coverage of LGBT athletes in Rio.NBC Sports stammered and stumbled in its live commentary, and news articles read tone-deaf of LGBT issues (not to mention gender and race). Part of the problem is a continuing lack of diversity in newsrooms. But the issue cuts deeper to a fundamental carelessness - even outright disrespect - of LGBT athletes' privacy and safety. Given their platforms and influence, journalists must do better in their reporting.
