Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa Watch: What and When Did Telemundo/NBC Know About the Villaraigosa – Mirthala Salinas Affair?

As Flap was driving home from Ventura last night from his CPR renewal course, KFI’s John Ziegler was laughing at Telemundo/NBC and their “COVER THEIR ASS” investigative story on the Villaraigosa – Mirthala Salinas affair.

The inside poop is that management and staff KNEW Villaraigosa and Salinas had a “personal relationship” for months or years.

Eric Longabardi mentions this in his piece from yesterday.

General Manager KNBC-TV Los Angeles

So, is the Ana Garcia piece, investigating her “own shop,” since Telemundo and KNBC operate out of the same facilities, really a FAUX ATTEMPT to investigate the affair and the Mayor?

Probable.

And why has NBC/Telemundo been reluctant to fire Salinas while NBC had no hesitation to dump and fire Kyung Lah?

Isn’t it obvious?

Telemundo and NBC were as big a MEDIA WHORE as Mirthala Salinas. Her relationship with the Mayor gave them exclusive access to stories. Information and access = media dollars.

The scandal here is as much Telemundo’s as it is Mirthala’s.

So, Flap asks again: What you gonna do, Telemundo?

Salinas is there as well.
