For many years a show aired twice a day, in the afternoon then again in the early evening and nationwide, in cities with large Latino populations. It was, for a quick comparison, like Jerry Springer only worse, if you can imagine. Guests came on to battle it out with each other over, mostly, love or property. And, shockingly, audience members were encouraged to chant “maricón” “puto” “puñal” and other words synonymous with the word "faggot."
Wonder what we’re up to at GLAAD?
GLAAD is a core supporter of the Drop the I-Word campaign, which delivered a petition with more than 70,000 signatures to The New York Times calling on the newspaper to stop describing people as "illegal.”
Following public outcry after U.S. Representative Don Young (R-AK) used a racial slur to describe immigrant farm workers during a radio interview this week, Young issued what many are considering a half-hearted apology.
Today, GLAAD and the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) delivered thousands of signatures to Liberman Broadcasting, Inc. about its show 'José Luis Sin Censura," which, despite promises to take the show off the air, continues to run its violent and offensive content during the daytime, unaltered.
