Organizational culture and content production of diasporic media in the U.S.
MetadataShow full item record
This research utilized the organizational culture perspective to study the content production of the Hispanic-language and Chinese-language diasporic newspapers in the United States. A telephone survey was conducted to illicit cultural values, goals and performances related to their content production. The study found that diasporic media in general shared such goals as serving the non-English-speaking immigrant populations and standing up for the minority. The national/ethnic cultures of diasporic media’s home countries were helpful to the understanding of their difference in profit-orientation, perception of media’s watchdog role and a number of news selection criteria.
