Broadcast networks opt out of Obama immigration speech -- except for Univision

By Brian Stelter November 19, 2014: 9:51 PM ET
Eight years ago, President George W. Bush delivered a prime time address on immigration, carried by all the big broadcast networks.

On Thursday, President Barack Obama will do the same thing, but three of the broadcasters, ABC, NBC, and CBS have signaled that they won't be carrying it.

CNN will carry the 8 p.m. address, of course, and so will all the other cable news channels. PBS will, as well. And perhaps most importantly for the White House, the dominant Spanish-language broadcaster in the United States, Univision, will be translating it and airing it live.

The varying decisions illustrate just how much has changed in the media industry in the Bush and Obama years.
