Of América on Hiatus

October 11, 2009

Dear Friends and Readers,

as you may have noted, we’ve not been posting here for some weeks. The reason for this hiatus is that we have joined Presente.org in its bastadobbs campaign, which seeks to improve the quality and transparency of what we see and hear about Latinos in the mainstream media. We’re taking this break because Lou Dobbs is nothing less than the Most Dangerous Man for Latinos in América.

Taking on CNN, getting them to do the right thing by ending Dobbs’ hate speech disguised as “news” requires much time and considerable effort. I promise to return to the work you come here to see and hear as soon as is humanly possible. I hope and expect that our first post will be about CNN’s decision to dump Dobbs. Thanks and be well.
