I have also been having thoughts about this, it seems commendable(sp?) on
one level to have a multicultural representation in the media, however I
am not sure of the multiculturalism behind the doors. That is to say,
those in charge of the decisions rarely seem to be of a variety of
nations, there seems to be an agenda to exploit the various levels for
profit which is not distributed across the board.
