Mega Media Merger (en Español)
Friday, September 12, 2003
This week, the FCC signaled that it would approve a controversial merger between the nation's largest Spanish language TV network and the biggest Spanish language radio network. Critics have argued the deal will allow Univision to unfairly dominate the Spanish language media market. But Univision counters that there really isn't any such thing as a separate Spanish language market, because Latinos regularly channel-hop between English and Spanish stations. Political Scientist Louis DeSipio has studied the media diet of Latinos in the U.S., and tells Bob that the truth is somewhere in between.
