State of the News Media: Newspapers, Hispanic & Black News Media, and Audio & Podcasting:

The newspaper industry’s financial fortunes and subscriber base have been in decline since the mid-2000s, and website audience traffic, after some years of growth, has leveled off. A new Pew Research Center analysis finds that in 2018, estimated U.S. daily newspaper circulation (print and digital combined) was 28.6 million for weekday and 30.8 million for Sunday, down 8% and 9%, respectively, from the previous year.

Not just one foundation, not just one newsroom: How the Colorado Media Project is trying to rebuild a local news ecosystem:
“This didn’t take a ton of capital. It just took a lot of willingness on the part of a lot of different folks to collectively figure out what we should do, where are the gaps, and how we can fill them.”

Jeanette Vizguerra: Learn her name and story of resistance:
“On April 22, 2019, students from a multicultural journalism class at the University of Denver were welcomed into the First Unitarian Society of Denver, where Vizguerra currently resides and has taken sanctuary, to hear her truth.”

Yes, there is difference between ‘Texas Mexican’ food and Tex-Mex:
“With “Don’t Count the Tortillas,” out June 25, Medrano, 70, continues that story, using his voice to amplify the voices of those who have been cooking Texas Mexican food in restaurants and home kitchens, simultaneously working to highlight social issues and raise awareness of the challenges the people who created that food — and who continue its evolution — have faced over the years.”

Cities Start to Question the American Ideal: A House with a Yard on Every Lot:
“Townhomes, duplexes and apartments are effectively banned in many neighborhoods. Now some communities regret it.” 

Migratory Notes:
At a time of rapidly shifting policies, we synthesize exceptional immigration journalism and highlight emerging practices to connect with multiethnic communities. 

In Europe, media narratives about migration are deeply shaped by national press culture:
“From our perspective, it’s more newsworthy if people are abusing the system or exploiting loopholes or abusing the hospitality being extended to them by British society…because that triggers a reaction in readers.”

Losing Ground
Losing Ground presents a disturbing yet compelling portrait of a state where black and Latino residents are falling further and further behind their white counterparts. That state is Colorado. RMPBS News journalists analyzed six decades of reports from the U.S. Census Bureau to track the state’s poverty rates, family income, high school and college graduation rates and home ownership. The analysis uncovered surprising trends in racial and ethnic disparities. Minority gains made during the era of the civil rights movement eroded with time. Colorado evolved from a state that was by most measures more equitable than the national average in the first decades covered by the analysis to one that is less so now.
