Asian Americans are the fastest growing minority group in the U.S. -- but you'd never know it from watching the nation's Sunday talk shows.
A new report from think tank ChangeLab analyzed 26 weeks' worth of the five big Sunday shows -- "Face The Nation," "Fox News Sunday," "Meet The Press," "State Of The Union," and "This Week"-- from Jan. 1 through June 30 of 2013.
The group found that, over the course of 130 episodes, Asian Americans were only discussed a total of 13 times.
That was a slight improvement from a similar study ChangeLab conducted in 2012, when Asian Americans were discussed once over the course of 169 shows.
The population of Asians in the U.S. grew by 46 percent between 2000 and 2010, according to an analysis of 2010 census data by the Asian American Center For Advancing Justice.
And this growth could have political implications that the morning shows should probably be paying attention to. Since 2000, Asian Americans have made the strongest political shift toward the Democratic Party of all ethnic groups.
