NYT reporter says she would boycott Masters until women allowed at Augusta

    Thought this might be worthy of discussion; away from the other thread on Sports & News.

    Crouse said she'd just assume not cover another Masters until there's a female member. Apparently her editor was unimpressed.

    She said she was the only woman at the news conference to ask a question; not sure if that's a feat or not. Don't know how many women were there, or how many other women were assigned to write about it.

    I guess she's out of the lottery to golf Monday?

    Paging spnited ...

    You're there to tell stories (including the lack of female membership), not build up your supply of journo points.

    Journalists shouldn't make stories about themselves.

    Agree completely.

    And so by boycotting, she ensures that there is even less of a female presence at the tournament.

    Really, playthrough?

    Anyway, I think this would be a whole lot more effective if either all female journalists boycotted or The New York Times boycotted. As is, it's just her saying she's hurting the Times more than the Masters.

  10. Wow...

    There's all kinds of shit I'd like to boycott that I have to cover as part of my - you know - job.

    I hope the Times re-assigns her to the prep soccer.

    That being said ... I will stand with her. I will not go to Augusta until a woman is made a member.
    Of course, the next time I go will be the first time.

    Is this worse than adopting reverential tones when talking about hallowed Augusta?
