Before and after: Bill Maher’s gender-balanced staff

Like any profitable and aggressive media outfit, HBO must ensure that its Web site is always up to date. All the latest information on its shows, its talent, its ambitions — it’s gotta be up there, fresh.

Routine maintenance and updating is the only possible explanation for the change in Bill Maher’s “cast & crew” page over the last 24 hours. Here’s how that page looked yesterday, before this blog started making inquiries about why it showcased a 13-to-1 man-to-woman ratio.


And here’s how it looks now, a day later. Kudos to HBO for updating things, not to mention attaining overnight gender diversity.
