The news that shouldn’t be news study of the week comes courtesy of Rutgers University and the journal Politics and Policy. Researchers took a look at the academics offered spots on a number of op-ed pages including the The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The results: men wrote more than 80% of the academic op-eds at The New York Times and — drum roll, please — 97% of such op-eds at The Wall Street Journal. In a demonstration of grace, noblesse oblige and chivalry, editors at the Times and Journal would not comment on the findings.
