Well, "proper" journalists are less inclined to switch between languages, i suppose. "Alas Singko Y Medya" Is comparable to talk shows or say "Good Morning America", rathern than "Nightly News With Tom Brokaw" (only examples I can think of to compare it to). On "Alas Singko Y Medya". Politicians on the other hand almost always speak in English when Interviewed.
