New study cites role of conservative talk radio in spreading hate speech targeting minorities, religious groups and the LGBT community

The National Hispanic Media Coalition released the second study from the UCLA ChicanoStudies Research Center (CSRC), Social Networks for Hate Speech. CSRC monitored conservative talk radio programming focusing on five prominent shows and analyzed the ideological positions of scheduled guests and their affiliated organizations.

Hate speech on its face is troubling, but this study demonstrates how hate speech may be affecting the nation’s political discourse, as well as the safety of minority communities. 

The National Hispanic Media Coalition is part of America Healing, a long-term effort of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, working to improve life outcomes for vulnerable children by fostering racial healing toward racial equity and eliminating barriers to opportunity.
