Univision Rips Obama for Not Including Them in Syria Interviews
On Monday, Univision’s anchor Jorge Ramos tweeted his unhappiness because Barack Obama did not go on his network to discuss administration’s policy vis-à-vis Syria.
Ramos tweeted, “Pres. Obama gives 6 interviews today. None of those to Univision. Why? Hispanics also care about Syria. Same mistake as presidential debates.” Another Ramos tweet followed with: “150,000+ Latinos are serving in the U.S. military. But none of the the 6 interviews given today by Obama include Univision.”
Obama was interviewed by the anchors of CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox News, CNN and PBS.
Univision released a statement of its own which read:
What happens in Syria is important to Univision news’ audience. As the fastest growing demographic in the U.S. the decisions that are made by our government on issues like this one have a direct impact in their lives and their future. The U.S. Hispanic community has the right to be well-informed and receive all the news and information they need from the news source they trust the most. It’s disappointing to see the lack of interest to reach our audience on this important issue.
