This article in the Washington Post (registration required) describes
how Mexican Spanish is becoming "standard" Spanish, through the power
of Mexican television broadcasting giants Telemundo and Univision.
The article's title is "Accent on Higher TV Ratings: Spanish-Language
Network Telemundo Coaches Actors to Use Mexican Dialect." It may be
available via Google news in that format.
