ERS News (who broke the story about Salinas and Fabian Nunez) is reporting that Telemundo anchor Mirthala Salinas is in big trouble with her bosses, General manager Manuel Abud and News Director Al Corral. The gist:
on three separate occasions Telemundo management asked Salinas if she was having an affair with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and all three times she denied the relationship over the past year. Telemundo management also feels “blindsided” about Salinas’ statement released yesterday to the LA Times and CNN. Apparently she did not run the statement through Telemundo management and she released that statement without their approval or vetting. Salinas, according to sources has hired a PR firm to help her deal with the fallout of her affair with the Mayor.
