Will the Latino vote elect the next President? It’s estimated that nearly 10% of the voters this November will be US Hispanics (a 26% increase over 2008 figures) — and many live in critical “swing” states. The presidential candidates and their campaigns recognize the importance of getting their message out to Hispanics. And no less interested are the mainstream and Hispanic media in covering the election. Time Magazine’s March 5 cover story “Yo Decido (I Decide): Why Latinos Will Pick the Next President” was a good example. This webinar will focus on how Hispanic media is covering and will continue to cover the national elections; and what the real issues of interest to Latinos are.
