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 same population categories used by the 1990 U.S. Census. The work covers over 60 years, beginning in 1934, and provides parallel treatment of each group, including mini-histories, examination of news coverage during pivotal time periods, extensive endnotes and selected bibliographies. The book reveals patterns and similarities in news coverage of these groups. It also includes chapters on investigative reporting and broadcast regulations relating to minorities.

Book News
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.
