"Immigrants have the same impact on this country as a major terrorist attack." All "good patriots" should "go to the border" and "lock and load." "[The Bible] says that if they break into your country, you must cut off their limbs." Speech like this is all too common these days in the mainstream media. At the same time, hate crimes against Latinos and other people of color are at an all-time high.

This panel, held at the National Conference for Media Reform in Boston on April 9, examined the extent and effects of hate speech in media and to discuss strategies to hold the media accountable for responsible journalism, while at the same time respecting First Amendment freedoms.

Panelists: Alex Nogales, National Hispanic Media Coalition; Rory O'Connor, author and filmmaker; Patrice O'Neill, The Working Group; Favianna Rodriguez, artists and new media organizer. Moderator: Jessica Gonzalez, National Hispanic Media Coalition.

Thanks to Paggy Chen of Worcester Community Cable Access for the footage.
