Opening Keynote: Changing Perspectives of How the News Depicts The Hispanic Vote
Perspectives on the news changes from network to network, and from journalist to journalist. This special conversation asks a leading Hispanic news journalist to define an Hispanic perspective in the news, and especially how this perspective affects the way the news reports the power of the Hispanic voter.  And, what are the special challenges that an Hispanic on-air talent faces when representing the news, and the Hispanic culture to a broad audience in English?
