The Case of "Alvarez" vs. "Albertson": Effects of Author's Ethnicity on Evaluation of News Stories.
Burkhart, Ford N.; Sigelman, Carol; Frith, Katherine T.
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v74 n2 p304-14 Sum 1997
Examines how readers react to a journalist's ethnicity. Finds that (1) a Hispanic author was highly likely to be associated in readers' minds with a glowing article about Hispanics but was unlikely to be credited with authorship of a positive article about Anglos; and (2) the Hispanic author was evaluated no differently than was the Anglo-American author of comparable skill.
