After nearly a week's worth of controversy, Univision anchor María Elena Salinas has seen fit to address the pushback to portions of her commencement speech at Cal State Fullerton. Unfortunately, Salinas' opinion column leaves much to be desired, and raises new concerns instead of resolving old ones.
The Democrats’ socialist candidate for President of the United States, Bernie Sanders, was seriously tripped up this week in an interview with Univision’s León Krauze. When asked to explain the failure of socialist governments in Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil, Sanders completely clammed up, saying he has an opinion on the subject, but was unwilling to share it, as he is “focused on my campaign.”
As further proof that the nation’s leading Hispanic media are really a subset of the establishment media - as opposed to something independent of it - the Washington Post has decided to once again dedicate prime ink to the showcasing of Univision’s much-ballyhooed voter registration drive.
Como prueba adicional de que los medios principales de la prensa hispana no son sino una burbuja dentro de la burbuja mediática de Washington, el diario The Washington Post se ha dado a la tarea de volverle a dedicar tinta a la promoción de la muy sonada campaña de inscripción electoral de Univisión.
Viewers of ABC, CBS or NBC morning shows and evening news programs could be forgiven for thinking nothing newsworthy is going on in Venezuela, where an emboldened opposition in recent weeks has been working to remove incumbent socialist President Nicolás Maduro through a recall referendum. The country is currently going through a devastating humanitarian crisis, in which food is scarce, medicine and other supplies are dwindling rapidly, and the populace is sliding into chaos. Yet, the traditional big three broadcast networks have yet to air a single word about this ongoing crisis.
Coverage of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s video messages to the 2016 meeting of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) on the nation’s top Spanish-language network was remarkable for totally failing to point out how the two candidates align with the organization’s stated policy priorities.
The Azteca America network continues to try to outdo its competition in the U.S. Spanish-language media segment, in terms of the most insanely biased coverage of the immigration agenda. Here's your latest installment, a confirmation of something I learned in art class many years ago- that empty spaces can also tell a story.
La inmigración es el lente.
A pair of recent stories on NBC's Spanish-language sister network, Telemundo, prove that bias is everywhere and not always limited to the body of a report. As was reported on several major media outlets, the United States Supreme Court has decided it is appropriate to bar a deported foreign national from re-entry into the United States due to a prior conviction of attempted arson.
Casi un año después de que Donald Trump anunció el lanzamiento de su campaña presidencial, Jorge Ramos finalmente decidió hacerle una entrevista a un partidario del hombre que lidera la contienda interna por la nominación desde el verano de 2015 y que ahora ha surgido como el virtual candidato republicano a la Casa Blanca.
You wouldn’t know it from watching the major English or Spanish-language television networks, but while campaigning in Puerto Rico this week the socialist candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Bernie Sanders, announced that if elected he would pardon Oscar López-Rivera, a man convicted for constructing bombs and training others in how to build and use them during a Marxist-inspired terrorist campaign that sought independence for the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico during the 1970’s and early 1980’s.
El sesgo de Univisión contra la aplicación de la ley, evidente en la forma que cubre las noticias, no se limita a ir contra el cumplimiento de las leyes de inmigración de Estados Unidos. También se extiende contra las leyes de identificación de votantes, que están dirigidas precisamente a proteger del fraude electoral y a salvaguardar la integridad del proceso electoral estadounidense.
