On immigrants and immigration, when does talk radio go to far?

November 15, 2011 (1 min read)

"A UCLA study released last week examined the prevalence of anti-immigrant rhetoric on talk radio, measuring instances of “code words” and other negative references to immigrants, Latinos and other minorities on segments of three popular conservative talk shows.  Participating in a panel timed to the release of the report along with its UCLA authors last week was Alex Nogales, president and CEO of the National Hispanic Media Coalition. The Pasadena-based media watchdog group advocates for “accurate and balanced” portrayals of Latinos in news and entertainment programming, among other things, and part of its focus lately has been on talk radio." - MultiAmerican, Nov. 14, 2011.
