Connections: Javier Garza on journalist safety and immigration coverage in U.S. and Mexico

Nov 12, 2018

Are there parallels between attacks on the media in the U.S. and in Mexico? How is immigration covered by journalists in the U.S. and journalists in Mexico? We discuss these questions with Javier Garza, a journalist based in northern Mexico. He covers U.S.-Mexico bilateral issues and is an adviser on journalist safety.

He's in Rochester as a guest of RIT, but first, he joins us on Connections. In studio:

  • Javier Garza, journalist based in northern Mexico who is the host of Reporte100, a contributor for El País, and an adviser on journalist safety at the World Association of Newspapers
  • Andrea Hickerson, director of the School of Communication at RIT
