Cultural Genocide through Mainstream Media: A Brief Critical Analysis
Olague, Rubén; Ekiaka Nzai, Valentin
Journal of Latinos and Education, v13 n4 p309-316 2014
While the U.S. mainstream media continues to exercise its right of way in the American landscape, the predominant culture faces a population and popularity decrease. Diversity is slowly finding a perennial nest for growth, although minorities are still being shelled by mainstream media that consciously and unconsciously make the attack a priority in their news and entertainment properties. This article provides an overview of the cultural genocide caused by mainstream media, considering it is in the hand of the hegemonic group that finds it necessary to condemn anything that is different in a society that is pluralistic by nature.
