Once upon a time, Telemundo sought to reply a necessity within the market by taking a “Just the News” method, to important and rankings acclaim. But it seems that the community is eschewing that method in favor of extra one-sided protection, particularly in relation to immigration.
The newest occasion of this phenomena may be witnessed at the newest version of its Sunday information talker Enfoque. Roughly half of the half-hour broadcast was devoted to immigration. However, the complete immigration phase was an advocacy block with nobody to talk in favor of the proposal put forth by the White House. Carlos Diaz-Rosillo, Director of Policy & Interagency Coordination on the White House, is usually accessible to those Spanish-language Sunday reveals, and is a straightforward reserving. But, inexplicably given the lead-in into the president’s State of the Union speech, not this Sunday.
Furthermore, the phase featured no Republicans aside from a pair of six-second quotes which have been included in White House correspondent Lori Montenegro’s report. Following Montenegro’s report, host Jose Diaz-Balart proceeded to interview Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar (Tex.). Again, no response and no stability to Cuellar’s phase. Following Cuellar’s interview, the present proceeded to interviews of two immigration activists. This concluded the present’s protection on immigration- with no single advocate for compromise on immigration.
Telemundo’s shift belies its previous “just the news” method. Telemundo’s chief competitor Univision reinvented itself for the age of Trump, by tripling down on its activist protection of the day’s information. It seems that Telemundo, with an curiosity in not being outdone by Univision, has shifted its protection on immigration issues and is now shifting in direction of its personal activist mannequin.
We’ll be watching.
