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?
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?
