Let's Talk New Mexico 10/1, 8a: Newsrooms in New Mexico rarely reflect the diversity of the communities around them, and journalists of color across the country are calling out racism in their industry. On the next Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’ll hear from local veteran reporters and media educators who are challenging the status quo. And we want you to join in on the discussion. What do reporters get wrong about your community? Do you think it’s possible for reporters to be “objective” about issues of racism and other inequities?
