The cancellation of Jorge Ramos' signature show (and subsequent repurposing of the veteran anchor's role) on Fusion tells us much more about the direction network has taken than it does about the controversial anchor. And no one should be surprised.

Media bias…is not a new thing. 

One of Rage Against the Machine’s big hits was “Bulls on Parade.”  Were anyone to pen a tune about the media -- “Lemmings on Parade” as a title would eminently work.

Levante la mano si usted pensó que Univision, entre todos los medios, sería la que desafiaría el protocolo mediático basado en la conciencia política y sería la más fáctica a la hora de cubrir las expresiones del asesino en Fresno tras su arresto. Asombrosamente, eso fue precisamente lo que ocurrió.

Si existe otra explicación para lo que fue un intercambio asombroso entre los presentadores al cierre de Noticiero Univision esta pasada semana, entonces quisiera oírlo. El 17 de abril, los televidentes presenciaron un diálogo entre Jorge Ramos y María Elena Salinas tan fundamentalmente carente de reconocimiento propio que no puede haber otra respuesta racional sino que se debe a una presunción institucional estupidez de los televidentes de Univision.

La necesidad de Univision de convertir a Donald Trump en el villano de toda noticia migratoria se está saliendo de control, como vemos en este reporte reciente desde un pueblo en el estado de Oaxaca, México, que ha cerrado sus puertas a los inmigrantes centroamericanos. Pero, ¿realmente tuvo Trumo algo que ver en esto, o habría algún otro factor en juego?

New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters hinted on Thursday's Morning Joe that Fox News's Sean Hannity be fired next after the network showed anchor Bill O'Reilly the door, Wednesday, in response to sexual harassment allegations. He lectured, "I think you have to look at somebody like Sean Hannity and question whether or not his -- almost propaganda-like attitude and programs every night is going to be acceptable in the minds of the family, which is clearly trying to shift the network."

During the first few months of the Trump presidency, anti-Semitic incidents grabbed headlines, with hundreds of bomb threats against Jewish community centers and Jewish cemeteries vandalized in Philadelphia and other places. Jewish organizations like the Anti-Defamation League were targeted. While these hate crimes are alarming and tragic, the ADL should not be immune from criticism as it is persistently in the media in light of its left-wing slant. The use of the ADL in the media is no different than the attributions to leftist groups like the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the Southern Poverty Law Center. The absence of criticism of the ADL in media outlets is outrageous.

Raise your hand if you thought that Univision, of all outlets, would defy politically correct media convention and be the most factually accurate when it came to covering the utterances made by the shooter upon his arrest in Fresno, California. Shockingly, this is exactly what happened.

Univision's need to inject the specter of Donald Trump into every immigration story is getting out of hand, as we see from a recent report from a small town in Oaxaca, Mexico, that has closed its doors to Central American immigrants. But did Trump really have anything to do with this, or was something else at play?

La división de noticias de Univision es experta en reportar noticias que podrían ser de interés a su teleaudiencia nacional, mientras que a la misma vez ocultan elementos de la noticia que podrían ser dañinos al arco narrativo de la cadena o de sus intereses comerciales. El ejemplo más receinte de ese sesgo por omisión viene mediante la cobertura brindada a la racha de asesinatos cometidos por la Mara Salvatrucha en Long Island, Nueva York.

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.
