Amen. Thank you!

We’ve been asking these questions to Latino immigrants in Oakland as part of our Listening Post initiative:

  • What information do you and your family need?
  • What would you like to see differently in the news?

And in short — report to come soon — I am hearing exactly what you’ve articulated here. So many people have told us they no longer watch the news because it’s depressing, upsetting, sensational, and doesn’t resonate with their realities. They want to see more diversity, more positive stories, and more information that enriches their lives.
