Using a $60,000 grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, the Futuro Media Group has added a segment to its NPR-distributed program Latino USA encouraging critical thinking about news coverage.
The goal of “News or Noise?”, according to anchor Maria Hinojosa, is to examine different terms in the news that cause confusion or misunderstandings.
The three- to five-minute segments will run for the next year. The series will culminate in a town-hall event in Chicago presented with WBEZ and Vocalo.org.
