I'm sure you all remember KTTV's Fox 11 reporter Tony "The Aztlan Avenger" Valdez sticking up for the Reconquistas by saying the following idiotic comment on television :

"And here in California there's a monument to the Mormon Battalion, the great heroes who killed a lot of Mexicans, enough Mexicans so that this part of the world could be taken by force, by force by the United States." ...Tony Valdez, KTTV Newsman, 5-1-06 Simulcast on KFI radio and KTTV

After this and other statements, KTTV was deluged with calls and emails demanding an apology. After realizing the error, KTTV sent out emails stating that Tony would be apologizing for his comments.

Well, turns out that instead of apologizing, he just invited a few people who opposed his comments onto the show. At no point in time was an apology issued. He didn't even issue one of those weak "I'm sorry that you got offended" apologies.

I just found out that up until the apology was suppossed to take place, latino activists were sending out emails trying to get callers to support Tony. The email contained the following laughable statement:

He made a historical point about Mexicans being killed by racists and in mentioning a memorial to a Mormon Battalion of soldiers, some feel he gave the impression the Mormons killed the Mexicans. I didn't get that impression, but the racist talk show hosts are having their listeners bombard KTTV 11 with demands to fire Tony.

Sorry pal, he flat out said that the Mormon Battalion killed a lot of Mexicans.

The media out there is only trying to hide the reconquista movement. Look up the term “AZTLAN” or “MEChA” and you tell me if a reconquista is going on in the Southwest of this country.
“MEChA is a Hispanic separatist organization that encourages anti-American activities and civil disobedience. The radical members of MEChA who refer to themselves as "Mechistas," romanticize Mexican claims to the "lost Territories" of the Southwestern United States -- a Chicano country called Aztlan. In its national constitution, MEChA calls for self-determination by its members to liberate Aztlan.” From http://www.mayorno.com/WhoIsMecha.html

In addition to being a disgusting racist bigot, Valdez is also a horrible reporter. His voice is terrible, his appearance is less than professional, and his command of the English language is quite flawed.
