I hate to b a downer, but the main reason conservatives don't go for journalism is that is not a career for someone with family values: it is extremely hard to support a family on what all but a few top journalists are paid, and you can't be a decent investigative reporter on the mommy track. I suppose that a young who graduates from college can work in journalism for a few years until she settles down int he suburbs with the cute guy who does sells life insurance or does marketing at Quaker Oats, but that means she quits before she has any influence over the product.
