The Chinese Press in U.S.: A Linkage to the Past.
Eight Chinese daily newspapers were content analyzed to determine the role and functions of the Chinese press in the United States. The papers studied were based in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and were dated from Novemer 1 to November 6, 1982. The results indicated that the Chinese press did not pay much attention to the local Chinese community--the "Chinatowns." Instead, the papers gave a large amount of space to coverage of China and Taiwan, the two "home countries" of the Chinese immigrants in America, and Hong Kong, the largest Chinese community outside China and Taiwan. The findings suggest that the Chinese press serves as a linkage to the past for the Chinese immigrants who came to the United States from China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. (Author/HTH)
