A Deeper Conversation about Diversity in The Media
LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

AOL’s acquisition of the Huffington Post for $315 million made headlines around the world and raised a lot of eyebrows among media makers. For loyal Huffington Post followers, there were concerns about maintaining the blog’s progressive point of view. For journalists of color, questions arose about how this merger will effect reporting about their communities — especially now that Arianna Huffington will oversee AOL’s Black Voices and AOL Latino and plans to include special “Latino” and “African American” sections to the Huffington Post. Many are asking, “Is this a step forward, or a step back?” Maria Hinojosa sits down with filmmaker and Columbia University Journalism Professor June Cross and columnist Ruben Navarrette to find the answer and discuss the reality of diversity in America media.
