OBAMA LEAVES OUT UNIVISION AND TELEMUNDO BEFORE ANNOUNCING
TARGETED MILITARY STRIKE TO SYRIA
[Excerpt from Hugo Balta’s Op-ed about the Obama administration’s leaving out of the meeting two important US networks -that happen to be HISPANIC.]
“Well, Mr. President – you’re wrong.
The more than 52 million Latinos in this country care about the same things that all Americans do. While English language media will reach many of them; estás ignorando 38 millones de personas que prefieren las noticias en Español (you are ignoring the 38 million that prefer their news in Spanish.).
It is not only an outrage, but yet another example of the short sightedness displayed by the Obama administration. The President met with news anchors from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS and Fox News on the eve before addressing the nation. Univision and Telemundo were once again left without a seat at the table.”
