Latinos: 1 Ken Burns: 0

You see the white soldier on the cover of the "The War" poster? I totally think whent the additional Latino content is added, that man will be Latino, and I think that would be neat.

Due to a overwhelming wave of publicity, PBS has announced that it will amend the Ken Burns documetary "The War", and now it'll include stories about Lation war veterans. Additionally, Burns said a Latino producer would be hired to create this additional content (though this should be obvious choice, in my opinion, almost not worth noting to the press because it should be so obvious that this should be the case).

The head of the New York chapter of the National Hispanic Media Coalition, Marta Garcia, said the change represents "a big victory for the Latino Community.
