Spanish-Language Press Faces Challenges Amidst Unprecedented Growth

(New America Media)–EFE/La Raza, Apr 18, 2007
The Spanish-language press will face great challenges this year as a result of the explosion in competition within the Spanish language journalism market, according to an EFE report in Spanish-language newspaper La Raza.
