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.
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.
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.
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:
CNN's New Day on Thursday blasted President Donald Trump for spending over $21 million visiting his Mar-a-Lago estate, but excused the price tag of former President Barack Obama's golf and vacation outings. "The President is on pace to spend more money on vacations in his very first year than former President Barack Obama did in eight years in office," anchor Alisyn Camerota said.
On Wednesday's The Last Word, Lawrence O'Donnell blasted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Trump administration for Tuesday's chemical attack by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad against his own people, which has killed almost 90 people, according to the count so far by human rights groups. "Men, women, children, and babies got gassed in Syria this week because last week, the Trump administration gave the signal that that was OK with President Trump," O'Donnell said.
CNN's New Day co-anchor Chris Cuomo conducted a softball interview Tuesday of Democratic Representative Jim Himes (Conn.), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, who slammed Chairman Devin Nunes and other Republicans over their approach to investigating possible ties between Presdient Donald Trump's campaign and Russia.
