Big Three Networks Ignore Univision Fast & Furious Special
Spanish-language network Univision recently aired a shocking exposé of the Obama administration's gun running program -- called Fast & Furious -- a policy that has ended up in the murder of hundreds of Mexican citizens. Despite this blockbuster report on Obama's lethal program and new accusations that 16 teenagers were killed by these weapons, neither ABC, CBS, nor NBC have yet said a word during their own news broadcasts about these developments.
This news blackout is most surprising because the Univision report is so fraught with political repercussions both domestically and in relations between the United States and Mexico. Yet neither of the big three nets seems interested to report on this story.
The most shocking incident of murder and destruction by narco-terrorists using Obama's guns was the attack on a birthday party attended by dozens of teenagers.
On January 30, 2010, a commando of at least 20 hit men parked themselves outside a birthday party of high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez. Near midnight, the assassins, later identified as hired guns for the Mexican cartel La Linea, broke into a one-story house and opened fire on a gathering of nearly 60 teenagers. Outside, lookouts gunned down a screaming neighbor and several students who had managed to escape. Fourteen young men and women were killed, and 12 more were wounded before the hit men finally fled.
"Indirectly, the United States government played a role in the massacre by supplying some of the firearms used by the cartel murderers," Univision concludes.
ABC's refusal to air any of Univision's report is doubly interesting. This is because ABC has actually posted a report on its own website about the Univision exposé. But despite its online coverage, ABC has ignored the Univision special on its own broadcast news programs.
The Univision report is in Spanish, but a subtitled version hit the Web Tuesday.
