Is this really a big deal? What's so wrong with a Spanish language station target marketing its audience? Americans for Legal Immigration are calling the ads offensive and an emailer to Worldnet Daily believes the ads mean "they don't have to hide their intentions anymore."

We're not quite sure who "they" are but the station says that people of Mexican descent make up a large part of the city and that the Spanish language newscast is popular amongst that audience.

Color us shocked. While we have a station for men and a station promoting black star power, we never would've guessed that a Spanish language station might actually market to Mexican-Americans and Mexican Immigrants.
