Bilingual media: Bilingual media is in both English and the native language of the population being targeted. In print, bilingual material can appear throughout the paper (each article has its own English and non-English version), or certain articles can be in one language and others in English.

Ethnic media: Ethnic media is a term that is still sometimes debated. Some will argue that for ethnic media to truly be considered “ethnic media,” it must be both produced/owned by and targeted at a particular ethnic community. Others say that if an outlet is simply targeted at a particular ethnic population that is enough for it to be considered ethnic media.
