ABSTRACT
The article examines how Spanish-language news media aimed at Hispanic Americans covered the issue of race relations as it applied to the Democratic party U.S. presidential nomination campaign between Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton. Significant differences were found between their coverage of the issue and that by mainstream English language mass media. Spanish language newspapers and television ran articles pointing out that the Hispanic American community is far more diverse than it is usually portrayed in mainstream news outlets. It is noted that commentary and editorials on Obama in Spanish language mass media were divided by ideology and even nationality, and that the issue of his African American ancestry was ignored relative to its coverage in mainstream mass media.
