This edition: Make CensusTweet
Original tape date: May 13, 2009.
On this edition of Independent Sources we focus on the 2010 Census. What will be the ethnic media’s roll in the upcoming count and will a proposed boycott of the Census come to fruition? We talk to a Pakistani journalist about a country on the verge of chaos. We discuss the risks ethnic journalists face when covering their communities. Then we profile the Russian Reklama, one of the largest Russian papers in New York.
