This chapter explores ethno-territoriality and erasure in relation to the linguistic marginalization of Spanish-language media (SLM) though media deregulation and technological convergence. It provides examples of political, legal, and media practices that resulted in the exclusion of Latino political goals, media, and political value. For instance, the removal of Spanish-language television as part of ethno nationalism marks the omission of Spanish in the United States' systems of legal and cultural definitions of American citizenship. The move naturalized English as the state language, while supporting the claim that white ethnicity and the U.S. state are synonymous.

Keywords:   Spanish-language media, Latino political goals, political value, ethno nationalism, white ethnicity
