Hispanic media wins again
Okay so is it me or do more stats about Hispanics leading in this and gaining numbers and more viewership keep getting released? According to the Pew Hispanic Center, "In the last year, this media sector tended to fare better overall than the mainstream English-language media, according to a new study by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism." Although both mainstream and Spanish-language media both dropped in circulation, some bounced back up.
On to the online era. Although Hispanic Americans don't access the interenet at the same rate as other Americanos, there is obvious growth and bilingual Latinos are already heavily online. ::Looks at #Latism:: And look at the creation of Huffington Post's Latino Voices. Imagine a space where you are the reader and the writer; we definitely have voices to be heard. People my age do speak English more so than Spanish, but we definitely need our dose of Latino culture; whether it's in English or Spanish is up to us. It can most certainly vary as well. So where do you get your media? TV...online...radio (what's that)...print?
