PRIMER PLANO

Los comentarios profundamente ignorantes de Tom Brokaw sobre los hispanos y la asimilación sin duda fueron sorprendentes y chocantes, pero el corre-corre de muchos en la comunidad latina por demostrar que Brokaw estaba equivocado, justificándose de la peor manera posible lo fue aún más.

The AL DÍA Media Educational Foundation works to increase diversity in newsrooms. 

The Knight Foundation Commission Report on "Trust, Media and Democracy" hit the nail on the head. This is the way we did read it: Where are the Latinos/as in America’s newsrooms, 20 years after the NAHJ started its now forgotten national #Parity Project?

¿Es el secretario de Educación de Pensilvania, Pedro Rivera, alguien “no integrado”? No. Sin embargo Pedro es otro latino de los EE.UU. que puede parecer como otro "brown grand-baby”, que necesita trabajar más duro en integración, si fuéramos a creerle a Tom Brokaw. O confiar en la media verdad que la estrella de NBC ha decidido de manera inesperada validar.

Is somebody like PA Secretary of Education Pedro Rivera, “unassimilated”, I asked in our recent #ALDIAHigherEdLEADERS Summit2019, where he was the Keynote Speaker? No. However, Pedro is yet another U.S. Latino now under suspicion of perhaps being yet another “brown grand-baby”—  one who needs to work harder at assimilation, or learn better English, if we were to believe former national TV anchor Tom Brokaw. If we were to trust the half-truth the NBC star’s gaffe has unexpectedly championed.
