HATE RADIO. A new report from the National Hispanic Media Coalition explores how hate groups and hate crimes have spiked while hate radio's popularity and reach have grown across the country. The report details hundreds of consumer complaints to the Federal Communications Commission against powerful talk radio stations. The complaints allege that radio announcers used racist, hate terminology against African-Americans, Jews, and Latinos, and in some cases, encouraged physical violence against people from these groups.
