This edition: Women in the MediaTweet
Original tape date: April 1, 2009.
On this edition of Independent Sources we look at women in the ethnic media, who make some of the decisions and what are the stories they cover. We talk to a Korean professor and journalist about her community's media and their coverage of North Korea. Then we profile an Italian paper whose main mission is preserving a strong cultural identity in Italian Americans.
