I see that Governor Schwarzenegger got in trouble for speaking the truth and also not being politically correct. Good for him!
The National Hispanic Media Coalition felt that the Governor was wrong and naive for suggesting that Hispanic students would have a better chance of success if they turned off the Hispanic tv stations.
I've always felt that foreign language stations, no matter the language, kept people from learning English. I even told that to my father when he was listening to a German radio station. If you can get all the information you need in your native language, why try to learn English.
It's wonderful to keep your background, but, as they say, "When in Rome do as the Romans do". I have more respect for a person with an accent than I do for one who won't speak English.
