“Latinos want bias probe of media!” (says a Washington Examiner headline)

Oliphant on Cuba

Whoops!...But not of the Washinton Post, instead they rage against FoxNews, perhaps unaware that Fox already gave our Lateeno brothers and sisters their little playpen in Fox Latino.

Oh, now and then FoxNews Lateeeeno publish good stuff, don't get me wrong.

But nobody ever called Roger Ailes dumb. Let's face it, we're...what?...4 per cent of U.S. "Hispanics?"

Latino groups Wednesday blamed a surge in hate crimes against Hispanics on harmful stereotypes portrayed on TV and in conservative media and are asking the administration to probe Fox News and talk radio, two media cited by the groups as the worst perpetrators.

"We want the government to investigate this," said Alex Nogales, president of the National Hispanic Media Coalition. "Unless we start this dialogue, these assaults will go on," he said, citing a surge in hate crimes against Hispanics.

Also charging Fox News and talk radio with portraying Hispanics poorly, Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., said the administration should provide "protection from the stimuli that is being promoted out there that is causing the correlation between violence, stereotyping and the increasing racism in this country against Latinos."
