This one-volume sourcebook draws together the scholarly literature assessing news coverage in the U.S. mainstream media of Americans of African, Native, Asian, Hispanic, or Pacific Islander origin. The work covers over 60 years, beginning in 1934, and examines the 50 states and the territories in the Pacific and the Caribbean that are currently under U.S. governance. The categories of racial and cultural groups follow the scheme of the 1990 U.S. Census, which provided the most detailed breakdown of race and ethnicity of the American population in the 200-year history of the census.

This sourcebook gives parallel treatment to each of these five census groups. Every chapter begins with a history of that group as it came under U.S. jurisdiction. Then, each chapter is divided into six periods suggested by pivotal news events and discusses studies of news coverage of that group during that period. Each chapter also contains extensive endnotes and a selected bibliography on a racial or cultural group. Also included are chapters on investigative reporting and federal regulation of broadcasting as they relate to minorities.

Editorial Reviews

Complements the many critiques of mainstream news coverage of a particular minority group, by presenting in a single volume studies relating to Americans of African, Native, Asian, Hispanic, and Pacific Islander origin. The analysis focuses on media that shape the attitudes of the general news market, that is English-language print news media, including editorials and cartoons; and to a lesser extent broadcasting. Describes news coverage of each group from when it first came under US jurisdiction through six periods suggested by pivotal news events from 1934 to 1996.
