Univision CEO Randy Falco has sent a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, gently criticizing its decision not to include a Latino moderator in the four debates scheduled, and suggesting an additional “forum”… to be moderated by Univision personalities, of course.
The debates announced yesterday presented an ideal opportunity to tap one of the two best journalists in the business who have a broad understanding of the domestic and international issues facing this country, understand the Hispanic community better than anyone else and are fully bilingual: Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas…
Since you have already made your decision on moderators for the debates and have neglected to have someone speak credibly to the concerns of Hispanics in America, Univision would be willing to create a forum for the presidential candidates to address this sector of our society.
Falco’s full letter is embedded after the jump.
