MPT under fire for picking up V-me

Maryland Public Television's recent announcement of its plans to begin multicasting V-me, pubTV's new Spanish-language digital channel, came under fire from Republican State Delegate Pat McDonough. During a recent talk radio appearance, McDonough accused MPT leaders of adding the service as political payback for Hispanic supporters of Maryland's new Democratic governor, Martin O'Malley. In an editorial published today, the Baltimore Sun described the complainers as "know-nothing critics."
