while most newspapers follow a template similar to each other, including topics such as current events, editorials, and arts and leisure, there are also many differences that can be juxtaposed.  For example, on the topic of current events, one newspaper might report the news in a way that is intended to sway viewers towards their own idealogical beliefs.  Another newspaper may spend more time on sports or entertainment. In this essay, I will be comparing the similarities and differences between three newspapers: two ethnic newspapers and one mainstream newspaper. The newspapers that were used in my research include, the Irish echo, the Jewish press, and the New York Post. The research provided will give knowledge on what exactly is being circulated, and whether or not the information given is more opinion than news. Also, I will discuss ways in which these newspapers can learn from one another and ultimately be regarded as fair and balanced.









Newspapers are a very important part of history, because they are written by people who either witnessed what was happening or interviewed a person who was part of a situation. Also, with newspapers we can be informed about what is happening not only in our country, but worldwide. By looking at different newspapers from different countries and ethnics groups we can see what type of information is more important to a specific group. Also we can see how things have changed over time and what issues are the most important at the moment. Looking at newspapers we can see the different types of sports different countries play, for example in the Dominican Republic most of the sport news are about baseball, while in Ireland newspaper talks about soccer. By comparing newspapers we can see what news are important to different ethics groups.

New York Post:



New York’s greater metropolitan area boasts a population with ethnicities from each continent, therefore being one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world. This diversity is also present amongst print journalism outlets. Newspapers are the oldest and most known mediums for getting local, national and international news. Mainstream newspapers deem what becomes newsworthy for the general public, because of this not all events are deemed noteworthy. It makes the most sense for different cultural groupings to create newspapers that deal with issues and events pertaining to them specifically. 

Comparing mainstream newspapers with more cultural-specific newspapers to highlight the differences and similarities in wording, style, and choice of content within such journalistic genres as politics, sports, entertainment, editorial etc. Most cultural newspapers tend to focus on their cultural groups’ news within the area that they serve. As well because readership would not be as high as mainstream newspapers they’re news cycle is usually longer. 

Specifically comparing the mainstream paper The New York Post, The NY Carib News, and the Filipino Reporter and the differences in reporting on certain topics as well as what they choose to report on. The choice of these three newspapers is important because they serve very different cultural groups, and are different in terms of frequency of circulation, for example the Filipino Reporter is a weekly newspaper with an online presence, so is the NY CARIB News, but The New York Post is a daily newspaper with a website that is also updated daily. Also the articles that have been selected are the ones that made the front page of the website, to illustrate the difference in what cultural group deems important, The New York Post chose to an op-ed piece about their criticisms over Obama, where as The NY Carib News chose write about a Food Chain owned and frequented by people of Caribbean heritage. As well The Filipino Reporter chose to highlight a death within in their small community.

Events that have occurred and tend to have a powerful or meaningful impact on society, can be reported in the form of a broadcast or a published report for everyone to see, read or hear.   News can be reported in different categories such as in the form of entertainment, sports, politics, business or just local news.  For newspapers, readers can find that certain events that were reported on one newspaper, was not published by another.  This can be due to the newspapers initial focus on specific subjects, in which the editors might feel to be more significant to its specific target audience.  Newspaper readers might notice a difference in editorial content or written style.  For example, one newspaper might emphasize its news more on business and the economy, such as The Wall Street Journal.  While another newspaper will focus more on political and international issues, and have great quality reporting material, such as the New York Times.

Abstract- Draft

New York City is one of the most diverse cities across the world. Here you can find residents that come from the farthest and smallest cities ever imagined. Since it is compromised of mostly immigrants it is important for them to connect to what’s happening back in their home country. When we talk about diversity in NYC ethnicity is definitely a big part of it, but another great thing that separates all New Yorkers is their individuality. The great thing about media is that it is able to cater to all of these different ethnicities and individuals in the world.

Media has become a very powerful voice in all parts of the world. It’s ability to connect people and an event from different parts is astounding. With the use of the Internet, Television, and Print media there is a way to satisfy everyone. Even though the Internet is the fastest growing source for information, Newspapers are still very popular amongst the scholars, professionals, and the older generation. In this essay we will review three local NYC Newspaper (New York Amsterdam News, El Especialito, and The Wall Street Journal) to see who is there target consumers and how they cover their news.


News is essential in this world especially in a city like New York, which is famous for its diversity. Therefore, news can be read, seen and heard in almost every language, and everywhere you go. This has become possible due to the advance technology, such as the internet, television and the radio. However, newspapers has been around for a very long time now, and it is still in fact a major source people use to get their current news; national, international and local. For people that left their country of origin is very important to stay connected to what is happening back home. This is why newspapers from different cultures focus more on delivering news that are occurring specifically to their group. However, all newspapers including those of other ethnic groups, seem to follow the same editorial content; from their national, international and local news section. As well as their special sections, including Entertainment, sports, features, food, etc. Looking at the New York Times, El Diario La Prensa and The Jewish Post; we can determine so much. Such as what news are more important to them and in the way it affects them. I choose these newspapers in particular because every ethnic newspaper deliver news in different in different point of views, especially ethnic groups with major cultural differences.
