Univision Pulls Plug On “Don’t Vote” Ad Targeted At Latino Reid Voters

October 19, 2010 12:48 p.m.

Ben Smith breaks the news that the Spanish-language network Univision will not be airing a controversial segment by the conservative group Latinos for Reform urging Hispanic voters to stay home on election day in Nevada.

“Univision will not be running any spots from Latinos for Reform related to voting,” according to network spokeswoman Monica Talan. “Univision prides itself on promoting civic engagement and our extensive national campaigns encourage Hispanics to vote.”

Talan also distanced Univision from Robert de Posada, the founder of Latinos for Reform, whom we interviewed here.
