Making Headlines

By Latino USA

This week we explore what it means to not just make the news, but be the ones writing the headlines. Journalist Juan Gonzalez of Democracy Now! talks about diversity in the newsroom and the relationship between the media and people of color. Mexican reporter and author Lydia Cacho talks about facing brutal retaliation for exposing child sex trafficking. In Texas, a new proposed textbook rewrites Mexican American history—and not in a good way. And we take a look at media aimed at Latino millennials and ask if it’s really connecting with young people.
