Global Media Coverage of English Only's Defeat

New York Times -- "Nashville ... rejected a proposal ... to prevent government workers from communicating in other languages"

BBC -- "The "English First" measure was defeated by 41,752 votes to 32,144."

MSNBC -- "The vote means the city of nearly 600,000 people refused to become the largest in the U.S. to prohibit translating written and spoken communications for residents who speak no or little English."

    Twitter's popular BreakingNewsOn, an international news service, announced the good news shortly after the election was called, too.
