In Fox News Latino: GOP Debate Features Brawl over Immigration and Health Care

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado in Fox News Latino on Jacksonville, FL GOP Debate

The GOP Debates are to policy wonks and political junkies what American Idol is to middle American: drama, underdogs, audiences whooping, yelping, booing, and high-fiving I’m sure, if CNN had turned the cameras more on the audience. At the center of this spectacle are the four remaining GOP presidential nominee hopefuls in the run up […]

TWLC’s Viviana Hurtado on NPR’s Tell Me More with Michel Martin Talks about the State of the (Dis)Union

“Celebrities, They’re Just Like Us!” is my favorite segments in US Weekly. They eat ice cream! They go to Target! nboinbreogrogtewoighrogqoig They face plant in their computers because they’re so tired from burning the midnight, day break, lunchtime, former Oprah slot, late night oil (actually, that’s me and I’m no celeb)!
