Immigration protests across the United States surprised much of the mainstream press, and spurred discussion in newsrooms about how to cover Hispanic life in America. In a live broadcast from the National Association of Hispanic Journalists Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., reporters discuss the Latino beat — and how newsrooms can cover it better.

Guests:

Macarena Hernandez, opinion columnist for The Dallas Morning News

Raul Ramirez, news and public affairs director for member station KQED in San Francisco

Maria Elena Salinas, Emmy-award winning anchor of the TV show Noticiero Univision; syndicated columnist for King Features; author of the book I Am My Father's Daughter: Living a Life Without Secrets
