A Wonkblog item at the Washington Post about immigrants who have been receiving food stamps allegedly deciding to cancel their enrollment has been sharply criticized for a headline change which occurred a short time after the entry went up. It was: "Immigrants are now canceling their food stamps for fear that Trump will deport them"; now it's "Immigrants are going hungry so Trump won't deport them." Despite the headline revision's alarmism, that's nowhere near the most serious problem with Caitlin Dewey's post.
On Monday morning, the hosts of Morning Joe discussed the current cover of Time magazine, which features Trump’s Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon. The conversation was prompted by Joe Scarborough, who discussed the allegations made in The New York Times that Trump did not realize his executive order had given Bannon more power. Walter Isaacson, CEO of Aspen Institute and former Time magazine editor, joined the discussion concerning Donald Trump and the cover of the publication.
Fresh Off the Boat just abandoned all pretense of being a fun family comedy to deliver its viewers a stern lecture on illegal immigration. In Tuesday's episode “Citizen Jessica,” Jessica Huang (Constance Wu) fully supports Florida’s Proposition 187, which seeks “to end illegal immigration by putting up a wall of Border Patrol agents on our shore.”
Univision's news division is nothing if not laughably predictable. As sure as the day is long and the Sun rises in the east, this election cycle was not going to pass without Univision News finding a way to reignite its war with U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).
Appearing on the Friday edition of the Fox News Channel’s Your World, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell and host Neil Cavuto hammered the liberal media for their refusal to cover Democratic Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s latest lowering of American discourse as he used the Senate floor to declare Donald Trump to be “a human leech who will bleed the country.”
If these "Stuff Jorge Ramos Says" posts seem repetitive, it is because it is unprecedented for a national news anchor to go on the record with his opinions of a presidential candidate (published on multinational platforms), because the establishment media has aided and abetted this break with longstanding tradition, and because it is important to create preserve -consistent with the mission of the MRC - a record of these statements of bias.
Jorge Ramos' latest column clarifies and brightens a formerly blurry line between journalism and advocacy; between neutrality and partisanship, tacitly endorsing Hillary Clinton for President in the process.
Earlier, we showed how Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos gave an immigration lecture to the father of a young man murdered by an illegal immigrant gang member. Sadly, it wasn't just Ramos, and Univision News went further.
Seldom will you see such a clear case of advocacy journalism as this: Jorge Ramos pitching comprehensive immigration reform to the father of a young California man murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2008, just three doors down from his home. But this is exactly what Fusion viewers saw last night as part of the Univision affiliate's coverage of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
Former Univision News analyst and Univision America radio host Helen Aguirre-Ferre appeared on Sunday's Al Punto, in what was her return to the program since joining the RNC as Director for Hispanic Media. Her interview with host Jorge Ramos went pretty much as expected.
As we have noted previously, the wildest instances of bias by Univision News are now reflected on the network's digital platform. The latest instance comes via its coverage of the Republican National Convention's platform plank on the issue most essential to Univision's long-term survival: immigration.
Estos días, lo que es la marca de Noticias Univisión gira en torno a la estridencia con la que cubre el tema migratorio. Sin embargo, es fascinante ver a la cadena tratar de ocultar sus sesgos a la hora de cubrir otros casos controversiales, como vemos en su cobertura del fallo emitido por el Tribunal Supremo en el caso de aborto de Texas.
