Sam Donaldson received an RTNDA Paul White award yesterday afternoon. In his acceptance speech, he talked about this year’s presidential elections and gave celebrity blogger Perez Hilton quite a plug. He mentioned how the blogger, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, endorsed Hillary, and thanks to his blog, which gets over 7 million daily hits, “helped her get the youth vote in California.”
“He delivers!” Sam said he had to get to know who this influential guy was “so, I called and said hi, I want to get to know you!”
It’s great to know we have such an influential Latino in our media midst….
