    The Spanish language MSM provides better and more honest reporting than the English language MSM. Hispanics for now are better served getting their news from the Spanish language MSM.

    • Andrew Allison

      If that’s the case, where’s the outrage from the Hispanic community over the attempt by a black lynch mob to, figuratively speaking, hang one of their own?

        You can ask the same question of white Americans. I don’t speak for anyone except myself.

        • Andrew Allison

          Me neither, but my take on the overall Internet commentary on BGI (MSM and certain self-serving black leaders) propaganda that it has created outrage in the white community.

      cubanbob, please permit and excuse my interjection: this an an observation regarding call to outrage vis-a-vis Florida Martin trial. First if outrage is justified, then all ‘rule of law’ adhering Americans (not a specific ethnic group) ought to be outraged – but based on Florida law case has been properly adjudicated. Any hyperbolic, invidious, divisive, and bias call for single group outrage may reveal more about motive of instigator than objectivity in interest – intemperate fit of hubris undergirded by uncontrolled anger at America’s inclusive application of protocols to rule of law perhaps. Can there be any instructive difference from those of trial’s race baiters?
      Final note, I deliberately addressed this observation to you to avoid running commentary and to preclude ugly vein of racial discomfort or unguarded animus to come off as serious inquiry (because what purpose is served by outraging one group of Americans against another by third party interest under guise of comparing English and Spanish media delivery). To that end, I have said my last on this thread – thanks for indulgence.

      • Andrew Allison

        Well, if somewhat verbosely, said.

        Anthony I don’t understand what it is you are addressing me about. I’m a Floridian and I agree with the jury’s verdict. Whatever may have occurred that lead to the shooting the fact remains that at the moment Martin was shot the physical evidence corroborated Zimmerman. Other than active duty members of the Armed Forces in a combat situation no one is required to either die or risk severe bodily injury and that is what Zimmerman did-save his life in this unfortunate situation.

        As for my prior comment, all I said is that the Spanish language MSM is less agenda driven and more factually correct

        • Anthony

          No, I was not addressing your comment; which I found quite direct. I joined a conversation directed at you by response and apologized in advance for intervention – trial was context; enjoy the Florida sun. Best.

    “In duller news, Detroit became the largest American city to file for bankruptcy this week but the city, amazingly, still plans to go ahead with a taxpayer-funded $450 million sports arena.”
    I would have thought that the collapse of an architypically Blue City would have been of more interest to your readers than a royal baby. Can it be that the US actually desires a return to monarchy, oops, I forgot that we’ve already done that in all but name; we do, after all, already have our very own, home-grown, Star Chamber and General Warrants.
