After almost nine days of silence on the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal, CBS and NBC ended their coverage blackout with full stories following the release of a fourth horrifying video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) while ABC and Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision ignored it. However, the stories on the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News were anything but impressive as the duo largely played defense for the abortion providers in bemoaning the defunding “attack in Congress.”
The network media’s blackout of the IRS scandal continued on Wednesday night with zero mentions of the Senate hearing held hours before as well as a threat issued by a federal judge to hold IRS commissioner John Koskinen and Department of Justice (DOJ) attorneys in contempt of court concerning Lois Lerner’s e-mails. As usual, FNC's Special Report provided coverage that the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC and Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision did not and led its Wednesday show with a full story from chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel.
On Tuesday night, the decision by the major broadcast network to erase the Planned Parenthood scandal from their newscasts continued with the release of a sickening third video by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) that again discussed the selling of body parts from aborted babies. As the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC were ignoring this third video, the trio spent six minutes and 26 seconds teasing and reporting on the shooting death of a high-profile African lion in Zimbabwe by an American dentist.
Los resultados de las investigaciones de control interno que encontraron evidencias de mal manejo, que potencialmente pudo poner en riesgo información de seguridad nacional, debido a las malas prácticas en el uso de los correos electrónicos por parte de Hillary Clinton, cuando se desempeñó como secretaria de estado, fueron examinadas por las principales cadenas hispanoparlantes. Hasta ahora, Telemundo ha dedicado más tiempo a la noticia en desarrollo, mientras que cobertura de Univisión y MundoFox al asunto se ha limitado a breves resúmenes.
U.S. Inspector General findings that Hillary Clinton evidently mishandled - and potentially compromised - national security information through her rogue email practices as Secretary of State of the United States were the subject of scrutiny on the nation’s top Spanish-language networks. So far, Telemundo has dedicated the most time to the developing story, while Univision and MundoFox coverage of the matter has been limited to news briefs.
El conductor de Telemundo, José Díaz Balart, no logró llegar muy lejos cuando trató de cuestionar a Donald Trump durante el viaje del candidato republicano dominante a la frontera entre los Estados Unidos y México.
Telemundo anchor José Díaz-Balart did not get very far trying to question Donald Trump during the leading Republican presidential candidate’s recent trip to the U.S.-Mexico border.
As Díaz-Balart started to launch into a question, with the words “Many feel that what you said when you said that people that cross the border are rapists and murderers” Trump abruptly cut Díaz-Balart off and lambasted what he termed media “misinterpretation,” to loud cheers from onlookers.
While English-networks ABC and NBC combined with Spanish-language networks MundoFox, Telemundo, and Univision on Thursday night to skip testimony from Secretary of State John Kerry in a Senate hearing on the Iran deal, CBS covered it in a news brief, but only summarized it and ignored false statements by Kerry as he faced criticism from both sides of the aisle. In contrast, the FNC's Special Report not only had a full segment on the hearing, but a takedown of three claims by Kerry.
On Wednesday night, major broadcast networks CBS and NBC showed no interest in shedding light on the findings of new Quinnipiac poll that found Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s honest and trustworthy ratings are continuing to fall and she trails three possible GOP opponents in three battleground states. While the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News focused exclusively on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, ABC’s World News Tonight made time to report on both Trump and Clinton.
Following the release on Tuesday of a second video by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) depicting a Planned Parenthood executive discussing the selling of body parts from aborted babies, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News teamed with the top Spanish-language networks to completely ignore the video. Stepping out from behind ABC and NBC and Spanish-language networks MundoFox, Telemundo, and Univision, the CBS Evening News offered a two-minute report on CMP’s second video.
Aunque sus contrapartes angloparlantes han brindado informes completos sobre el escándalo en desarrollo que afecta el supuesto tráfico de órganos fetales por parte de Planned Parenthood, las principales cadenas hispanoparlantes han ignorado casi en su totalidad el video oculto, tomado por la organización pro-vida, Center for Medical Progress, que grabó a la doctora Deborah Nucatola, de Planned Parenthood, explicando la implicación de su organización en el tráfico de órganos de fetos abortados.
Though their English-counterparts have provided full reports on the scandal involving Planned Parenthood’s alleged unborn organ trafficking, the top Spanish-language television networks have almost entirely ignored the undercover video, made by the pro-life organization Center for Medical Progress that recorded Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Deborah Nucatola explaining her organization’s involvement in trafficking the body parts of aborted babies.
