MRC President Brent Bozell: GOP Should Consider Cancelling Univision-Sponsored Debate

RESTON, VA – Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement after Univision senior executive, Alberto Ciurana compared Donald Trump, a candidate for the Republican nomination for President, to Dylann Roof, a racist who murdered nine Americans during a church Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina.

Univision is a Spanish-language network that has very close ties to the leading Democrat candidate for president, Hillary Clinton.

MRC President Brent Bozell reacts:

“Univision’s unwillingness to discipline Alberto Ciurana, their president of programming and content, is outrageous. How, in this day and age, an executive of a supposed news company can get away with comparing a candidate for President to a cold-blooded murderer without consequences is unfathomable. If an executive at Univision had done the same thing with Hillary Clinton, is there any doubt he would be fired by now?

Univision must remove Ciurana from his current position immediately and salvage what credibility it has left. Ciurana's 'apology' was nothing of the sort. He must personally apologize to Mr. Trump and his family. If he cannot apologize, and Univision will not discipline, the GOP should cancel its planned presidential debate on that network.”
