Latino groups Wednesday blamed a surge in hate crimes against Hispanics on harmful stereotypes portrayed on TV and in conservative media and are asking the administration to probe Fox News and talk radio, two media cited by the groups as the worst perpetrators.
"We want the government to investigate this," said Alex Nogales, president of the National Hispanic Media Coalition. "Unless we start this dialogue, these assaults will go on," he said, citing a surge in hate crimes against Hispanics.
Also charging Fox News and talk radio with portraying Hispanics poorly, Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., said the administration should provide "protection from the stimuli that is being promoted out there that is causing the correlation between violence, stereotyping and the increasing racism in this country against Latinos."
News industry insiders, however, noted that Fox has a sister division, Fox Latino, which was recently lauded by NPR. Fox also has several Hispanic hosts. Fox had no comment.
Nogales said his group has been measuring media bias against Latinos since 2008 and now he feels it's time for the government to step in. To back up his claim and provide the Federal Communications Commission with ammo to use against news outlets, Nogales commissioned polling from Latino Decisions to test American views of Hispanics.

Screw you and your First Amendment.
This is complete bull $hit.
When leftists want to take something away they will create a huge storm. With the attacks on our embassies they think they have their chance to cut the first amendment. Watch for gay groups and others start calling for this, and I expect the obama regime to take Egypt’s request to prosecute Terry Jones seriously.
Stay Vigilant, Pray for America.
Police pulled their DWI task force out of my neighborhood when I got robbed at gun point walking home one night. Two hispanic yutes told me “get down on the ground nigger!” several times and took my wallet.
NO followup investigation. NO prosecution. NO talk of “hate crimes”. NO media coverage.
Talk radio is not the culprit.
Maybe a telephone call from the Joint Chiefs of Staff would mollify Senor Nogalez.
We’ll get right on that... as soon as a bias probe is conducted on all the rest of the media.
If Grijalva wants to see a poor portayal of Hispanics he should take off his clothes and stand in front of a mirror.
And the Obama Fascists go marching along
Just part of the Obama fascist machine trying to gin up the Democrats minority base for the elections. He needs their votes.
A few words for the less than honorable congressmano:
Certainly would not want Congressman Grijalva, a towering intellect in our Federal Congress, to be upset. The fact that he is a prime race baiter, in a Party of race baiters, must not allow us to ignore his blather.
The article says there has been a surge in hate crimes against latinos. No source has been cited.
Anybody have hate crime stats? I don’t believe this claim.
You know what? I’m not really in the mood for anything today.
I’m all about Americans even Mexican Americans. Hell, I like them the most.
But, you little story of increased attacks on Latino’s is pure fiction.
I blasted some moron just yesterday because they needed to draw attention to themselves and make everyone uncomfortable.
See, it was at this new Mexican restaurant and this Ahole just had to start discussing illegal immigration so well, everyone could hear her erudite opinion on everything.
Told her she was rude and slack jawed. BTW, these people serving us just happen to be Americans and only is on a work visa.
More importantly I’m just trying to have my lunch and enjoy what was the Sopa de Roja I have ever had and her BS was making everyone uncomfortable.
So, fake hurt feeling latino, I feel yuh but your story is just so much crap slinging.
Demanding that government investigate the news media?
Who would’ve thunk that we would come this far?
The latinos should not have to worry — Fux will tone down the ‘rhetoric’ soon enough and apologize.
Well, there is the media lynching of George Zimmerman. Does that count?
You cannot stop us! You cannot say anything against our invasion, or we will have you arrested!
Truly incredible. The major nuclear power on Earth being intimidated and then invaded by a murderous rabble.
I hade a much longer answer, but nah...
“This guy is just full of caca” says it all.
