Immigration News Hardly Ever Covered By Latinos: Study
White, non-Hispanic journalists wrote a whopping 98.2 percent front page articles this year in major U.S. newspapers, according to data compiled by Fourth Estate, a group that tracks information about media. Only a miniscule 0.2 percent of journalists writing front-page newspaper features on immigration were Latino, according to the figures gathered from Jan. 1 to Oct. 12, 2012.
Critics also slammed the Presidential Debate Commission this year for picking only white, non-Hispanic journalists to serve as moderators. In each of the debates, moderators posed questions, redirected the candidates to new topics or fact-checked false claims.
