Latinos, CVS Wants to Win You Over with Fabuloso and Suavitel

CVS is trying to win over Latinos by testing a few stores called “CVS/pharmacy y más.” Seriously, that’s the name. Yeah, you can buy Vapor Rub at a regular ol’ CVS, but does it have a yellow paint job that’ll appeal to your Latino sensibilities? Didn’t think so. Let’s see just how exclusive their inventory of “trusted Hispanic” products is…

Lawmakers Call For Investigation Into Disinformation Campaign Aimed At Florida’s Latino Voters

Lawmakers Call For Investigation Into Disinformation Campaign Aimed At Florida’s Latino Voters

A disturbing disinformation campaign is taking place in Florida and it is targeting the Cuban-American community. The racist insert in The Miami Herald recently brought a spotlight to the wide reaching disinformation campaign made to convince Cuban-Americans to stay loyal to the Republican Party.

Politicians are growing concerned about the increasingly aggressive disinformation campaign in southern Florida.

From Whatsapp clips to Facebook groups, there has been an aggressive and seemingly success disinformation campaign aimed at Cuban and Cuban-Americans in southern Florida. QAnon and conspiracies are mainstays in Spanish-language YouTube channels and other social media sites. The ads claim things as extreme as President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were secretly selling uranium to Russia.

The campaign to mislead Latino voters in one of the larget swing states is causing alarm.

“People see the videos and the disinformation so many times that it gets to them. They feel they can’t trust the media, and that’s the most worrisome part,” Democratic strategist Evelyn Pérez-Vedía told NBC News. “Now they call Spanish-language media fake news.”

Politicians are calling for an investigation into the disinformation campaign to end it.

Representatives Joaquin Castro and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell are calling on the FBI to launch a formal investigation. The disinformation is aiming to move Latino voters to President Trump. A recent influx of Puerto Ricans who fled natural disasters has put the Republican hold on the Florida Latino vote in jeopardy.

Rep. Murcasel-Powell is sounding the alarm that the disinformation situation in Florida is akin to the Russian influence of the past.

“As we rapidly approach election day, Latino circles in South Florida have witnessed a surge in posts containing false or misleading information on social media…While disinformation on social media is, itself, problematic, even more concerning is the fact that disinformation originating on social media is now shaping and pervading more traditional media outlets in South Florida,” reads a letter from Reps. Castro and Mucarsel-Powell “As the FBI works to secure our elections, we urge you to keep the Latino community in mind and consider efforts of foreign actors to spread disinformation and sow doubt in our election systems among Latinos, especially in South Florida.”

It’s a reminder that it is important to be critical of what you see in social media.

It is always very important to double check your sources and do your research. Don’t just believe everything you see on social media, even if it is something that your friends and family are sharing and talking about. It is also important to keep those you love accountable and let them know when they are sharing things that just aren’t true.

It was supposed to be a way of protecting the man from Covid.

Jonah Delgado was caught on video abusing an 88-year-old man he was hired to care for. According to reports, the man’s son hired Delgado after releasing him from an assisted living facility to spare him the risk of contracting Covid.

Delgado is facing charges of elderly abuse and battery after the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Department posted part of the video on YouTube. The video shows Delgado yelling and physically attacking the elderly man.

The video shows Delgado verbally and physically abusing the elderly patient.

“Delgado was trusted to take care of this man and to protect him,” a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office told The Tampa Bay Times. “He not only broke this trust but put this man in direct danger with his actions.”

The story and video are a cautionary tale of hiring caregivers. It is important to make sure the caregiver is properly vetted. The video is a reminder that some times it is helpful to have a hidden camera to make sure that your family members are getting the best care possible.
