The New York Times becomes the third Publication to terminate Spanish News.

Spanish is the second most spoken language in the United States. Thus, it makes sense that news publications and channels serve the Latino community by providing news in Spanish. However, recently The New York Times announced that it is terminating its Spanish news coverage, becoming the third new outlet to do so after Buzzfeed and HuffPost. They cited that the Spanish news outlet was not financially feasible after running for almost three years. The Spanish publications created by Buzzfeed, HuffPost, and the New York Times were all done so in response to Trump being elected as President after he constantly insulted Mexican immigrants. While there has been woe regarding the termination of The New York Times en Español, a recent study discovered that there are currently “624 Latino news outlets nationwide” catering to almost “20 percent of the US population.” Studies also show that bilinguals fluent in both Spanish and English prefer to consume their news in English and more than 80% did so in 2016. There are also publications who are creating avenues for the inclusion of Spanish news and editorials. What is your opinion in this matter? Click on the link below to read the full article!
