This edition: Laying Down RootsTweet
Original tape date: March 24, 2010.
On this edition of Independent Sources, we look at grassroots organizations and the ethnic media's coverage of the latest flare up in the Israel/Palestine conflict. We ask the question - "Is there a feminization of the ethnic media?" We report on efforts to enlist the immigrant and community media in selling the CENSUS. Then, we profile a radio host trying to build bridges between Latinos and other ethnic communities.
