Umm, the La Opinion that published the Schelotto interview is the one in Los Angeles. It's the largest circulation Spanish-language daily in the US and it is definately NOT a tabloid. It is a serious paper that covers real news. They may be more "tabloidish" in their futbol coverage than your average English-language paper, but they rival the LA Times for their coverage overall.

Just sayin'.
