With Election Day nearing, it’s unfortunate to see more media outlets across the country parroting bogus arguments against common-sense voter ID laws. A recent news brief on Noticiero Telemundo, for example, breathlessly announced that “some 600,000 Hispanics and African-Americans in Texas could lose their vote in the November elections because of a law that requires one of seven types of photo identification in order to be allowed to vote.”

As presented, the story included - and thus advanced - the position of only one side of a hotly contested legal conflict. By so doing, Telemundo – along with other media outlets with similar story lines – seriously failed to present an accurate account of the real situation on the ground.
