Over a two-week period, the principal national evening newscasts of the nation’s leading Spanish-language television networks, Univision and Telemundo, dedicated over an hour of coverage to Donald Trump sex talk and subsequent allegations of misconduct by various women, in comparison to just over 12 minutes to the avalanche of red flags about Hillary Clinton and her campaign that have been brought to light by WikiLeaks.
The liberals who thought Chris Wallace did a bang-up job as moderator of the third presidential debate were judging strictly by appearances, contended Daily Kos’s Laura Clawson and Salon’s Gary Legum in separate articles. Clawson pooh-poohed the praise for Wallace, sneering that he “really wasn’t all that. Unless the ‘that’ is ‘a purveyor of right-wing talking points masked as “fair and balanced” questions.’” Legum called Wallace “a creature of Fox News, a point of view he betrayed through both his selection of several questions and the right-wing frame he gave to them. Which might have tickled the amygdala of conservatives everywhere, but also managed to perpetrate for a mainstream audience a couple of the more pernicious policy myths that haunt our political discourse.”
It isn’t just the news media censoring viewpoints on climate change anymore. According to a WikiLeaks email, the left-wing website Think Progress took responsibility for getting a professor ousted from writing at Nate Silver’s 538 blog. The professor diverged from Think Progress’ climate alarmist views by challenging claims that global warming causes more extreme weather.
Along with their colleagues in much of the rest of the national media, several members of Univision’s news crew have also been guilty of telling outright lies lately, in which they completely dismiss the reality of voter fraud problems in the United States.
“Tener mi bebé en Miami” es el nombre de un negocio de turismo de parto que fue el tema de un complaciente informe reciente en el noticiero nacional nocturno de Univisión.
There is a conspiracy against Donald Trump, believes The Daily Beast’s Michael Tomasky, but it’s inanimate: a “conspiracy of facts,” not a “conspiracy of liberals” in the media. The facts, Tomasky claimed in a Tuesday column, “simply do not damn [Hillary] Clinton in the way that [Trump] and his supporters believe they should. Take the new story, about the FBI and State and the alleged ‘quid pro quo.’ As all the news stories state plainly, eventually, in the sixth or seventh graf, there was no quid pro quo.” Tomasky blasted both Trump's “ridiculous whining” about the media and the idea that “the media are in Hillary’s pocket. Lord. The New York Times has been after her since 1992, with its Whitewater stories. The Times broke the email server story in March 2015. Is that the act of a paper conspiring to get her elected?”
The mounting archive of WikiLeaks emails between Hillary Clinton and her staff continues to reveal the Democratic presidential candidate’s special relationship with members of the liberal news media. Not only did she hold an off the record dinner with “influential reporters, anchors, and editors” just before officially launching her presidential bid, but reporters also asked for interviews promising the kind “she wants” or submitting copy for pre-approval before publishing it.
“Have My Baby in Miami” is the name of a birth tourism business that was the subject of a recent glowing report on Univision’s national evening news.
En lo que pareció ser el mitin por Hillary Clinton más grande realizado hasta ahora de la campaña presidencial, Univisión y su cadena hermana en inglés Fusion volvieron a apoyar abiertamente a su candidata predilecta. Lo hicieron con un evento para promover el voto que fue televisado durante tres horas. El mitin, con una concurrencia estimada de 15.000 personas (aunque es posible que algunos no fuesen ciudadanos y por eso no pueden votar), se realizó bajo el lema “Rise Up” (“Levántate”) en el lado de San Diego de la frontera entre Estados Unidos y México.
In what appeared to be the biggest pro-Hillary rally yet of the fall campaign (with an estimated crowd of 15,000, though it’s likely more than a few in attendance were non-citizens, and thus ineligible to cast a vote), Univision and its sister English-language network, Fusion, once again delivered for their network’s preferred candidate, with a three-hour televised Get-Out-the-Vote extravaganza, titled “Rise Up” on the San Diego side of the U.S. – Mexico border.
Historias de inmigrantes exitosos en los Estados Unidos obtienen cobertura frecuente y bienvenida en Univisión.
Detalles fascinantes son los que emergen del artículo de portada de la edición más receiente del semanario Bloomberg Businessweek- un artúculo sobre el presidente ejecutivo de Univision y megadonante de la Fundación Clinton Haim Saban. El detalle principal es que Univision es precisamente lo que creíamos que era.
