The September 2012 issue of Extra!, the magazine of Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting, laments that Hispanics make up 16% of the population but no more than 4% in many media professions such as broadcast news directors and CSPAN book reviewers. Before being extended such opportunities, shouldn't they have at least an average aptitude with the English language? It’s bad enough to go into a McDonald’s and have to ask repeatedly what it is that the cashier said. One shouldn’t have to endure a similar frustration when trying to catch the evening news.
