In a slanted piece covering the Mississippi law allowing businesses to protect their religious beliefs, Univision gave the gay rights movement deferential preference, and showed religious freedom the hand.
Most notably, Univision failed to provide viewers with a perspective from the people and institutions the law was meant to protect – mainly churchgoers, clergy and churches across America. The Spanish-language giant gave viewers an overwhelming bulk of opinions heavily favoring those who oppose the bill, including giving airtime to Monica Trasandes from GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and Eric Flemimg from ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) who both showed their disappointment in the passing of this bill.
Deliberately ignoring the legitimate concerns and negative impact that further erosion of religious liberties can have on those who uphold the classic definition of marriage, and ignoring the concerns of those in the businesses and religious community who fear being coerced into compromising their beliefs by having their First Amendment rights protected, Univision let us all know it is the LGBT community that holds priority when it comes to constitutional rights. If Spanish speaking audiences desire to hear both sides of this issue, they evidently can't count on Univision.
