Telemundo Whitewashes Study Targeting Latina Voters

Listen to the Article!

The true intentions behind a Telemundo story on how Latinas are “harnessing power and influence” in the nation rise to the surface like a dead fish- to wit: aligning this up and coming, powerful demographic with the left-leaning “influencer” agenda at Comcast NBC Universal. 

Watch how Telemundo anchor José Díaz-Balart throws the bait at its Latina audience, under the guise of their “far reaching initiative” Unstoppable Women and Know Your Value that “empowers women to express their worth in business and in life”:

 

 

JOSÉ DÍAZ-BALART, ANCHOR, TELEMUNDO: We are talking about a special report by Telemundo NBC and Comcast, that shows the gigantic impact of Latinas on the present and future of this nation. To start, the number of Latinas under 40 years of age, has increased by 55% from 2000 to 2017. For the first time, the workforce of Latinas has grown more than non-Latinas and that of Latino men. Female Hispanic millennials with a college degree have almost doubled from 2000 to 2017.

Awesome. So after ranting in news report after news report about the deplorable conditions and supposed discrimination and abuse Latinos are made to suffer in the United States, Telemundo finally admits that Hispanics, and in this case, Latinas, are doing better than even non-Latinos or Latino men. Congratulations chicas, way to go!

But, and there is always a but when discussing the liberal networks: a look at the actual Comcast NBC Universal report, titled ´Latinas Powering Forward´ shows what is, or rather who is, behind it: lo and behold, we see a picture on page 2 of Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC´s show Morning Joe, and founder of Know Your Value, together with Monica Gil, chief marketing officer and executive vice president for NBC Universal Telemundo Enterprises. The former a Trump-hater, uber-liberal obsessed with berating the President and his administration, and the latter her sidekick in this campaign set on influencing young Latina voters.  

Gil´s input to the Telemundo report about the study was to highlight the contributions of famous Latinas – who were also featured in the study – that are “affecting, impacting American culture. People like Jennifer Lopez, like Selena Gomez, and like Sofia Vergara…”

To which reporter Karla Amezola enthusiastically added: “Selena Gomez herself is using her influence as a successful Latina to empower others. She recently did so as a producer of a documentary on immigration.” 

That documentary would be Living Undocumented, an anti-ICE liberal propaganda piece produced for Netflix, and which features immigration attorneys, advocates and journalists that “help contextualize and explain America’s confounding immigration system.” Sort of like Telemundo´s constant rhetoric regarding illegal immigration.

The study drives the importance of Latina voters in the 2020 Presidential elections, concluding that “...2020 will be an important one for Latinas with a historical presidential election. Real change is heavily influenced by media that can help communicate how Latinas are shifting in their cultural narrative. New content and programming can inspire the next generation of Latinas to create the country they want in terms of fairness, inclusivity and quality of life.” 

And that, dear readers, is just what Telemundo has set out to do: go all out in promoting their liberal agenda, in a concerted effort to salvage whatever audience they have left.

JOSÉ DÍAZ-BALART, PRESENTADOR, TELEMUNDO: We are talking about a special report by Telemundo NBC and Comcast NBC, that shows the gigantic impact of Latinas on the present and future of this nation. To start the number of Latinas under 40 years of age, has increased by 55% from 2000 to 2017. For the first time, the workforce of Latinas has grown more than non-Latinas and that of Latino men. Female Hispanic millennials with a college degree have almost doubled from 2000 to 2017. However, there are still huge challenges because Latinas still earn only 54 cents for every dollar a non-Hispanic white man earns. Karla Amezola has the reactions to this revealing report.

KARLA AMEZOLA, CORRESPONDENT, TELEMUNDO: To fulfil your dreams, how does that make you feel? 

CLAUDIA BERROA, BUSINESS OWNER: I feel proud and excited. 

AMEZOLA: She started by selling homemade custard to her friends and a decade later Claudia Berroa distributes her desserts to large supermarket chains in New York. Now, the young businesswoman is about to open her own Peruvian restaurant.

BERROA: I am very proud of my roots because I come from a working family, I come from a family, my grandmother who raised me, a very determined woman. It's not that, overnight you achieve your dreams, no, you work hard

AMEZOLA: Claudia is part of a new generation of millions of Latinas in the United States who are helping the country's economy grow. A special report derived from the initiatives of Telemundo and NBC Universal, Unstoppable Women and Know Your Value, highlights that although most young Hispanics in the country consider themselves Latinas and Americans alike, their roots are very important and they retain Spanish at home.

Like Claudia, almost 90 percent also keep the recipes from their countries. This demographic group makes many more financial decisions than others including daily household purchases, savings, and investments. In addition, economic support where fashion and electronics industries stand out.

MONICA GIL, VICEPRESIDENT NBC UNIVERSAL TELEMUNDO: The Latina is affecting, impacting American culture. People like Jennifer Lopez, like Selena Gomez, and like Sofia Vergara 

AMEZOLA: Selena Gómez herself is using her influence as a successful Latina to empower others. She recently did so as a producer of documentary on immigration.

In Nueva York, Karla Amezola, Telemundo News.
