Lars Larson on Spanish Speaking Media

Well, Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Governor of California, is in big trouble now but I can’t seem to figure out why. Schwarzenegger went to a gathering of Spanish speaking journalists, people who work for t.v. and radio stations and newspapers that speak Spanish and they deal with a primarily Spanish speaking clientele. In Southern California, Spanish is the most successful language on radio, t.v. and, to a certain extent, in the news print.

Here’s the problem. Schwarzenegger told them that if they really want people to be successful in the United States, those people should shun media that only speak Spanish and go to all English. That is, learn the language of the country you are in and you will be successful. Now, boy are they piling on Schwarzenegger. What an unfair situation.
