Dubbing news programs distorts our understanding of the world

I just saw Theresa May interviewed on TV here in Uruguay. Weird to see her answering in Spanish, dubbed of course.

I wonder what dubbing does to human understanding. It deprives the viewer of the speaker's unique voice.

It may not matter much if it's a one time appearance or in a movie, but it does if it's a real  person that appears over and over.

It distorts reality.
