APA Compass: Media missteps, Heart2Heart with Ka, Jean Kwok

APA Compass introduces our newest collective member and features two prominent media missteps involving Asians and Asian-Americans:

  • We feature a tribute to our dear friend and colleague, Afifa Ahmed Shafi, a founding member of our APA Compass collective, who passed away July 29, 2013
  • Our newest collective member, Ka Her, introduces herself in the first installment of "Heart2Heart with Ka".
  • Asawin Suebsaeng reports on how both new and traditional media misidentified a missing Brown university student as the Boston marathon bombing suspect. 
  • Bobby Caina Calvan describes how multiple news outlets were taken in by a racist hoax following the crash of Asiana flight 214, and how similar mistakes could be avoided in the future.
  • Sarika Mehta interviews author Jean Kwok about her novel, "Girl in Translation".

 Produced by Andrew Yeh, Sarika Mehta, Ka Her, and Liz Rogers.
