Univision's news division is particularly adept at covering stories that could be of interest to its national audience, while at the same time burying any element of the story that could be damaging to the network's narrative arc or business interests. The most recent example of that bias by omission comes via Univision's coverage of MS-13's murder spree in Long Island, New York.

On Monday, a federal judge struck down the state of Texas’ voter ID law with claims that the law was specifically designed to target minorities. Seemingly just hearing about it on Thursday, CBS Evening News touted the development. “A federal judge has again struck down Texas' voter ID law, ruling that it is actually meant to keep minorities from voting. The state is expected to appeal,” announced Anchor Scott Pelley at the start of the segment.

One week in, the new ESPN policy move toward “balance" in political reporting is failing badly. This is based on two actions immediately following the so-called policy changes by the biggest name in left-stream sports media. Both are indicators that ESPN is actually doubling down on its hard Left mooring.

While a guest on the Fox News Channel’s weeknight Hannity program on Wednesday, April 12, Piers Morgan -- a former evening host for the Cable News Network and current U.S. editor-at-large on the Daily Mail website -- sharply criticized Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC’s Hardball program, for insinuating that President Donald Trump and his family might meet a savage end.

Although election night was the beginning of an upward surge in popularity for Late Show host Stephen Colbert, he found the prospect of announcing a Trump victory comparable to forcing his audience to watch an execution.

Please Senator Warner! Please find our Great Pumpkin and we will reward you with a presidential nomination! The Great Pumpkin in this case is proof of collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia to somehow change the 2016 election results. They still continue to search with the spotlight now on Senator Mark Warner of Virginia who is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee. The reward for finding their Great Pumpkin is a ticket to the presidency as Politico reminded us in their April 13 puff piece by Austin Wright:

TIME Magazine published Wednesday an eye-rolling piece regarding the possibility President Donald Trump could be impeached. Among a choir of left-wingers calling for his impeachment, the article "How Difficult Would It Be to Impeach President Trump?"-- already shared over 2,000 times--featured a holistic approach underlying factors that may lead to the third ever presidential impeachment.

If it sounded like Wednesday’s episode of Designated Survivor was straight from a gun control organization’s playbook, you would be right. As reported by the Washington Free Beacon’s Steve Gutowski, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence advised on the April 12 show in which “President Kirkland” (played by Kiefer Sutherland) lobbies for anti-Second Amendment legislation to pass the Senate.
A CNN ‘Journalist’ Is Really Queasy About the U.S. Dropping the ‘Mother of All Bombs’ in AfghanistanBy Curtis Houck | | April 13, 2017 | 3:25 PM EDT
In the moments after CNN first reported Thursday afternoon that the U.S. military dropped the “mother of all bombs” on an ISIS tunnel in Afghanistan, their Wonderlist host Bill Weir complained about the bomb’s significance, claiming in a tweet that it marked a sign of “desperation” by the U.S. that won’t have an impact on destroying ISIS.

What happens when Univision's go-to Member of Congress graces, as he does routinely, the network's Sunday show set? You get distortions, revised history, and pure partisanship. This time, though, Congressman Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) also acted as news director.

While the feminist media swooned over speakers like comedian Samantha Bee and politician Hillary Clinton at a recent conference, they paid little attention to others addressing the horrors committed against women abroad – or, more specifically, the plight of women enslaved by ISIS. On Friday, Women for Women International founder Zainab Salbi interviewed two women on ISIS’ abuse of those who identify as Yazidi, a minority religion primarily located in northern Iraq.

Disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather is being honored by the “legacy” media again, in an interview with Ana Marie Cox for this Sunday’s New York Times Magazine. Cox can’t describe what actually brought Rather his disgrace, only that he was an “early target of internet fact-finding.” As if George W. Bush wasn’t a target of Rather’s?
Cox treats him like a Wise Man on the future of journalism, as if asking the makers of the Titanic about the future of shipbuilding:

Susan Sarandon is a big-time Bernie fan. But since Donald Trump’s win, Hillary Clinton supporters have harassed the actress so much that she's had to change her phone number. So much for liberal tolerance. On April 12, Sarandon joined the ladies of The View to discuss her role as Hollywood legend Bette Davis in FX’s Feud. But, inevitably, the election came up too.
