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.
So far in this media segment, MundoFox alone has mentioned the scandal during a national evening newscast. Anchor Rolando Nichols read a brief tease of a single story on the subject, which aired on the network’s less viewed late-night news program. To his credit, Nichols used strong words in referring to the matter.
ROLANDO NICHOLS, ANCHOR: The presumed sale of fetal organs causes concern and indignation. A video would be revealing this type of crime.
Meanwhile Univision’s only reference to the scandal appeared online, and appears to have been subsequently deleted from the network website. It can currently only be located through Google’s cache copy. Moreover, Univision’s closest competitor, Telemundo, has so far completely censored the story.
The relevant portions of the referenced national newscasts appears below:
