Spanish-language media staffer wants nothing to do with Republican viewpoints

A staffer at the Spanish language media company Entravision wants to hear nothing from the Republican National Committee.

In an email response to one of the committee’s Spanish language press releases Friday, the employee requested the RNC remove him from their distribution list because he’s a Democrat.

“Take me off your distribution list please as I am a Democrat and do not need to read your viewpoints,” the staffer responded.


Entravision is “the largest affiliate group of both the top-ranked Univision television network and Univision’s UniMas network, with television stations in 19 of the nation’s top 50 Latino markets. The company owns and/or operates 56 primary television stations and also operates one of the nation’s largest groups of primarily Spanish-language radio stations, consisting of 49 owned and operated radio stations”

According to the RNC, the email is more evidence of bias in Spanish-language outlets.

“Conservative viewpoints are continuously being dismissed by Spanish language news and this is a real cause for concern because Hispanic audiences are being denied the information they need to make informed decisions,” Ali Pardo told The Daily Caller in an email. “Objective and balanced coverage must include diversity of thought.”

The email comes on the heels of a Media Research Center report which found that Spanish language news outlets in the United States, such as Univision and Telemundo, tend to lean left.
