Conservative Mexican-American business owner Edgar Antillón and the “White Appreciation Day” scheduled for June 11 at his Colorado barbeque joint received sympathetic treatment in Telemundo network coverage of the controversial initiative.

In his first comments to national Spanish-language media about the restaurant’s controversial promotion, the co-owner of Rubbin Buttz BBQ in Milliken, Colorado reiterated that just as African-Americans and Hispanics receive special, official recognition at different times of the year, “the light-skinned, the gringo” deserves a day in the proverbial sun, too. 



Esta semana, Amanda Rentería, recién nombrada directora política de Hillary Clinton, brindó una ridícula entrevista a Telemundo, la segunda mayor cadena de habla hispana.

En respuesta a una entrevista de una sola pregunta sobre la política migratoria de Hillary Clinton, Rentería ofreció 12 segundos de tonterías a María Celeste Arrarás, conductora del Noticiero Telemundo.



Hillary Clinton’s newly-minted national political director, Amanda Rentería, was the subject of a laughingstock of a debut interview this week on Telemundo, the nation’s second largest Spanish-language network.

In response to the interview’s one-and-only question, on Hillary Clinton’s new immigration policy, Rentería essentially offered 12 seconds of gibberish to Noticiero Telemundo anchor María Celeste Arrarás.



The intersection of multimillion-dollar donations to the Clinton Foundation and the business interests in Colombia of one of the Foundation’s top donors, Frank Giustra, has become the subject of fresh reporting on Univision’s principal national evening newscast, while Spanish-language competitors Telemundo and MundoFox continue to be silent about the matter.

Following up on the network’s previous coverage of the financial and ethical controversies surrounding the Clinton Foundation, Noticiero Univision anchor Jorge Ramos introduced a report by correspondent Lourdes Meluzá that focused specifically on the Latin American angle of the story.



El entrelazamiento de donaciones multimillonarias a la Fundación Clinton y los intereses de negocio en Colombia de uno de mayores donantes de la Fundación, Frank Giustra, fue el objeto de un nuevo informe de Univisión, durante su noticiero nocturno. Entretanto los competidores de Univisión, Telemundo y MundoFox siguen guardando silencio sobre el asunto.



On Monday night, English-language networks ABC and CBS joined Spanish-language networks MundoFox, Telemundo, and Univision in ignoring the news that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has finally agreed to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi regarding the 2012 terror attack in Libya and her usage of a private e-mail account while at the State Department.



English-language networks ABC, CBS, and NBC and Spanish networks MundoFox, Telemundo, and Univision  covered the news on Thursday night that independent Senator Bernie Sanders (Vt.) will seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, but only NBC Nightly News chose to label him a “socialist” after ABC and CBS had previously done so on Thursday morning. While correspondent and MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell characterized Sanders as a “socialist,” Mitchell offered some fawning words for him when she declared that he was “not your typical blow-dried politician.” 



On Thursday night, CBS and Spanish-language networks MundoFox, Telemundo, and Univision continued their silence on the latest controversy involving the Clinton Foundation and claims made in the upcoming book Clinton Cash about donations to the group while a Russian company purchased an American-owned uranium mine. Meanwhile, NBC ended its blackout on the story with a full report on NBC Nightly News, but downplayed the claims by touting an expert with the Soros-funded Sunlight Foundation, who declared that the book’s allegations offer “no smoking gun” regarding Clinton’s behavior.



Parte de la propaganda sobre el llamado “pago igualitario” incluyó la reciente cobertura de Univisión y Telemundo. Ambas cadenas noticiosas abordaron la controversia presentando al público solo una de las partes que alega que “las ganan el 78% de lo que ganan los hombres por hacer el mismo trabajo”.

Telemundo citó a Stephanie Román, del izquierdista Instituto de Políticas para la Mujer (IWPR- por sus siglas en inglés), quien afirmó que “las mujeres ganan el 78% de lo que ganan los hombres, para las mujeres latinas ese número es 54”. Por su parte la presentadora de Univisión, María E. Salinas, recitó algunos de los “datos” proporcionados por IWPR.



After nearly a month-long blackout, NBC finally acknowledged on Tuesday night the sex parties scandal that’s enveloped the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) following the announcement that DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart will retire next month. While NBC Nightly News ended the network’s 26-day-long silence, it only devoted 18 seconds to Leonhart’s decision to step aside and only glossed over mentioned the reasoning for her departure. 



The highly trumpeted “equal pay” issue was the subject of considerable coverage recently on both Univision and Telemundo. Both networks presented only one side of the controversy over American women allegedly “making 78% of what men earn for the same work.”



So far, coverage of Sen. Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign announcement has tilted left on the top-rated Univision and Telemundo newscasts, with both networks emphasizing the perspective of pro-amnesty critics of the Florida senator.

“The truth is Latinos do not want him here,” said a Rubio protester featured on Telemundo’s national evening newscast. Both Telemundo and Univision featured the group of pro-amnesty protesters outside the Freedom Tower where Rubio made his campaign announcement, and ignored the much larger group of pro-Rubio supporters inside.
