Positive Views From California Chinese Voters in The Field Poll

New America Now, Audio, Odette Keeley Posted: Jan 22, 2010

Editor's Note: Odette Keeley, news anchor for "Stories From The Ethnic Media" on NAM's radio program, "New America Now" on 91.7 FM KALW, talks to ethnic media professionals about their outlets' news headlines and their take on the news of the day.

This week on "Stories from the Ethnic Media": Most Chinese Americans in California are pessimistic about the states economy but many also believe they're better off financially than others; and, a newly-launched regional news hub helps ethnic media in Louisiana expand online.

The New Orleans Louisiana or NOLA Beez project is a recently launched ethnic news hub. It features hyperlocal news content that will reflect the diversity of the region. Publisher Vincent Sylvain is chief editor of the NOLA Beez. He explains how the project gives ethnic media a chance to go beyond delivering the news.
For the first time, The Field Poll in partnership with New America Media surveyed Californians using 6 languages: English, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean and Vietnamese. But the results were the same for all groups: more than 90% of California voters say the states economy is in terrible shape. Also, most believe they are worse off financially compared to last year. Although Chinese Americans agreed about the bleak economy, they differed in a way that surprised reporter Trista Wong of TV station KTSF Channel 26.
