Number of black and Asian bloggers at the ‘Telegraph’ and ‘Times’? Two

During a blogstroll of the Telegraph and Times it occurred to me that there was no black or Asian correspondents amongst their cadre of bloggers.

I was corrected by a friendly blogger (thanks SH) who pointed there were indeed two bloggers from such a background.

One is Lila Das Gupta who writes for the Telegraph’s gardening blog, Re-cycle of Life.

The other, at the Times, is novelist and columnist India Knight, writing about parenting for special needs children at Isn’t she talking yet?.

They have none that write about social and current affairs, economics, politics, religion, or sport.

    Before he was the BBC’s current sports editor, Mihir Bose was one of the Daily Telegraph’s sports columnists. Sukhdev Sandhu is the DT’s film critic.
