Suggested motto for Telemundo: ‘Democracy Dies…In Donuts’

Via NewsBusters.

Outstanding economic news continues for the nation’s largest ethnic minority – Hispanic Americans – with the unemployment rate for this segment of the population remaining at a record-low of 4.2% in May. Yet for the Spanish-language sister network of NBC, Telemundo, this historically low rate was not even worth mentioning on its national evening news.

Instead, completely ignoring the latest jobs numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, anchor José Díaz-Balart chose to share with his audience the evidently more important National Doughnut Day news, the day when “consumers spend 57% more on doughnuts.”….

Withholding good economic news from their audiences has become something of a custom at both Telemundo and Univision, the top two U.S. Spanish-language television networks that more often than not have ignored the record-setting new lows in Hispanic unemployment that have taken place five times since June of 2018.

    Hispanics are more likely than the general population to develop diabetes. It is estimated that 2.5 million, or 10.4 percent of Hispanic and Latino Americans aged 20 and older have diabetes. Hispanics also are more likely to have undiagnosed diabetes than non-Hispanic whites and non-Hispanic blacks. Nearly half of Hispanic children born in the year 2000 are likely to develop diabetes during their lives.

    Way to go, Telemundo. Audience endangerment.
