The media was all over President Obama's remarks about Eric Shinseki -- who resigned as head of the VA -- on Friday, but there was one glaring problem that had nothing to do with veterans affairs.

Washington Post reporter David Nakamura observed as television reporters did their stand-ups in the White House briefing room:

The media industry has, of course, always suffered from a major gender gap and lack of diversity. Nakamura also posted this Vine of the reporters:

Yep, there's MSNBC's Chuck Todd... Fox News' Ed Henry... CBS News' Major Garrett... ABC News' Jon Karl — and not a single female correspondent or reporter of color.
