Spanish channel Univision has won a Peabody Award for their Fast and Furious reporting. Most all American media outlets choose to ignore the ATF’s botched Gun Walking operations where over 2500 guns ended up in Mexican cartels hands. As seen above, Univision went above and beyond in exposing the corruption. The documentary actually ended up leading to much of the Congressional action.
“All of these prestigious national recognitions, an unprecedented achievement for a Spanish-language media company, speak to the caliber of the work that our News division is doing to inform and empower the Hispanic community,” said Isaac Lee, president of Univision News.
“Through our commitment to thorough, balanced reporting and the highest journalistic integrity, we are providing our community with access to vital information and in the process shining a light on issues that not only impact Hispanics, but also the country as a whole,” Lee said. “We are extremely proud of the Univision News team for their impressive achievements.”
