1,492 U.S. adults were polled about the media over the phone
Black and Hispanic Americans say the media does not accurately cover their communities, according to a study released Tuesday.
The survey of 1,492 U.S. adults was conducted over the phone by the Media Insight Project, a joint initiative of the American Press Institute and the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
Media Insight Project found that 33% of Hispanics and 25% of African-Americans believe the media portrays their community accurately. Only 19% of the African-Americans polled said that the most accurate coverage of their community comes from general local news, and only 18% from African-American specific news sources. Of Hispanic Americans, 49% said they felt that the most accurate news comes from Hispanic specific sources.
