  1. I think that Latinos are important to the media because if any latino does something they are going to post on the tv news or in the newspaper and that is going to give theme more rating.

  2. Media means of communication, as radio and television, newspapers, and magazines, that reach or influence people widely. And to consider of Latino population which is huge, that means if there is a message send out by the media, compare the huge population of the United States, there would be more people would know, to consider 24.7% of immigrations are Mexicans, there are populations in Brazil than Mexico. In the web sites of following, there are more information on this topic.

  3. Latinos are going to websites that the rest of the world are using which are Yahoo, Google and Microsoft but at the same time there are niche websites that allow Hispanics to socialize within their own communities as well as to search for information such as news, sports and entertainment within Latin America.

  4. Among the recommendations for increasing Latino relationship...(were):
    a). Improve Latin American coverage, and local and national Latino coverage "right away."
    b). Publish news about Latino interests on a consistent basis.
    c). Gradually boost bilingual coverage.
    d). Distinguish the post from spanish-language media by its inclusiveness, accuracy, and timeliness.
    "news managers have acknowledged issues raised by the report" Like every other americans Latino people should have same rights.

  6. The latino population has a big impact on the media an example of these is washington post newspaper because now they are trying to post more news of latino population in the articles. Some readers are in disagree with these because they think they should not be posting latino news on a american newspaper. One of our biggest primary sources in the United States is the newspaper.. The Washington post has already taken action of these.. 12.5% of the population in the US are latino. One of the big articles that Washington post presents is the census.
    Latino population growth in the eight states expected to gain seats has topped at least 25 percent, with Hispanics accounting for 63 percent of the growth in Texas and 49.5 percent of the jump in Florida. Nationwide, Latinos accounted for 51 percent of U.S. population growth since 2000, according to the Census Bureau.

  7. The growth of the Latino population is an important consideration to media because the Latino population is increasing. With the expanding population, the media is very important because when it comes election time the Latinos will have much say who is going to be elected to government. The media will have more stories about Latinos and the influence they are having on the country. Some people won't be happy with the bigger influence of the Latinos, but Americans will have to get used to it, especially in California where one day it is projected Latinos will be the highest populated group here.

  8. The purpose is to inform the population about world and local news, general trends and entertainment.
    Any presentation of the media therefore must be understandable to the general population and if that population is increasingly Latino, the content of the Media has to be increasingly relevant to Latinos.

  9. Basically, media is everywhere. the internet has Blogs, social networking sites, video and picture sharing—I could go on. The point is, there are many different kinds of audience members and if you are trying to tie Hispanics and social media together, you must understand the cultural implications of this shift into the realm of social media dominance.

  10. I think it is because the more people their are the more influence they can get in too those people. The more latinos the more chances theat the media can have of influencing those people. For example in an election who ever has the better poplarty has the better chanse of winning. Whatever has the biggest population has the better cnace of wiining so the growth of the lation population is a big help to the media in more ways then one.

  12. U.S. Census data show that Latinos are the fastest-growing ethnic group, representing the largest minority in the country. Today, there are approximately 42 million Latinos in the United States, which represents approximately 1 in every 8 residents – by 2008, 1 in every 5 will be Latino. The buying power of Latinos in the United States today stands at more than $800 billion. This will rise to more than $1 trillion by 2008. Dr. Robert Rodriguez, Chairman of the Board for the Hispanic Alliance for Career Enhancement, was online to answer questions about how businesses can best respond to this demographic shift and the growing economic power of Latinos.
