If you are in the Bay Area or cruising the Internet today around 10:30 a.m. PST/1:30 p.m. EST, please tune into KALW 91.7 where I’ll be a guest on Your Call to talk about coverage of Sikh Americans, and more broadly minorities, in wake of events such as Sunday’s shooting at a Wisconsin temple. It follows up an article I wrote on the issue of minority coverage amidst breaking news situations for Columbia Journalism Review. I briefly discuss that story on a blog post on this site.
For those of you who are interested in minority coverage in the media, please read my piece from today on the Columbia Journalism Review’s website titled “Breaking news: This minority group is different.” It’s specifically about the coverage of Sikhs in wake of Sunday’s shooting at a temple in suburban Milwaukee. Feel free to comment on CJR’s site or below.
