Thousands Protest Mexican TV Station for Alleged Election Bias

In Mexico, thousands of protesters have blocked the headquarters of the county’s leading television network, Televisa, to accuse it of biased coverage in the recent presidential elections. PRI candidate Enrique Peña Nieto defeated Andrés Manuel López Obrador earlier this month in a vote critics say was marred by fraud and tainted media coverage in favor of Peña Nieto’s campaign. López Obrador has challenged the election results in court. Televisa has even been accused of receiving payments from Peña Nieto’s supporters to skew its coverage. On Thursday, a massive crowd gathered outside the network’s studio, chanting "Tell the Truth."
