Hi,

I don't quite understand the underlined phrase. Could anyone do me a favor.

The androcentric imperatives of journalism are discernible not only in definitions of newsworthiness, they argue, but also in the ruthless competition to be first with the news, an over-reliance on male sources, and a fetishization of facts for their own sake (typically presented outside of their social, and therefore, gendered context).

Thanks a lot.

The underlined phrase seems to be talking about an over-reliance on facts (which to me seems rather odd).
