Just moved here from Miami,and watch local evening news. I was wondering if Bill Balleza is Mexican. And if he is,why when it comes to pronouncing a spanish word he tries to Americanize it.Could it be that he is a coconut? Dark onthe outside but white in the inside,. Just an observation.

I am a native Texan of Mexican/American descend. I am caucasian because of my European descend. We Hispanics here tend to pronounce Spanish words like an American would. Don't ask me why, but that is what we do here. Most native Texans (The Spanish Americans) do not associate themselves with being Mexican because they did not come from Mexico or were born or even have any ties to Mexico. Some people don't even call themselves Mexican/American because like I said, they did not come from there. Many generations were already here when the border crossed them. Bill Balleza is originally from San Antonio, and most likely Mexican/American despite his Indian facial features.

"Mexicans" are from Mexico. Real Mexicans take offense to whiney American hispanics posing as Mexicans. Bill Balleza was born in San Antonio, TX - that makes him an American.
Idiot. Why is this an issue? How can the color you're born with matter?

Umm..maybe because he's American? That's probably hard for someone to understand that has a burrito for a brain.

What does it matter if Balleza is mexican, hispanic or what nationality he is. Be glad the man speaks english. He ain't no wet back. Wet backs don't speak ENGLISH PERIOD. US MEXICANS BORN HERE IN THE U.S. THAT KNOW HOW TO SPEAK ENGLISH ARE NOT WETBACKS. WE EITHER CONSIDER OURSELVES MEXICAN AMERICANS OR HISPANICS. YOU HAVE THESE ILLEGALS THAT COME OVER HERE TO THE US AND WANT US CITIZENS. BUT IN MY OPINION THEY ARE STILL WETBACKS IF THEY BECOME US CITIZENS. WHY? BECAUSE THEY CAN'T SPEAK THE LANGUAGE. AND THEY EXPECT YOU TO CATER TO THEM. IN OTHER WORDS, SPEAK THEIR LANGUAGE AND THEY TAKE WHATS RIGHTFULLY OURS. GOVT. ASSISTANCE. AND THE ONES FROM HERE CAN GET IT BECAUSE OF THEM. THAT IS WHY THE SCHOOLS ARE CROWDED THANKS TO THEM. SO BALLEZA IS NOT A WETBACK. IF HE CONSIDERS HIMSELF A MEXICAN AMERICAN, OR HISPANIC; THEN SO BE IT.

I was born in San Antonio, just like Bill Balleza. I don't have an accent either.

He may be Hispanic by heritage, but he's American by choice. He "mis-prononces" Spanish terms because Texans do; otherwise,nobody would understand his news. Example: San JUH-sin-to, not ha-SIN-to River.

Vargos, about as up scale as you can get in Houston. Maybe you were jealous.
