It has often been said that politics is downstream from culture. But when it comes to Spanish-language media, politics and culture are virtually joined at the hip, as evidenced by recent coverage of an anti-Trump tweetstorm from Mexican actress Kate del Castillo.
As the fight for gun-control legislation continues on Capitol Hill, so too does the hypocrisy of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. On Wednesday, the show criticized Senator Susan Collins’ bipartisan legislation that would prevent people on two government watch lists from buying firearms. Host Joe Scarborough is so accustomed to attacking Republicans that he quickly chastised Senator Lindsey Graham for making his point on the need for greater constitutional restrictions regarding firearms.
In the moments following Hillary Clinton’s “heartfelt” remarks on the economy, MSNBC on Tuesday showered the candidate with their ritualistic, post-appearance bravado. Correspondent Kristen Welker described the occasion as one where Clinton “turned up the heat on Trump.” As for reporter Kasie Hunt, the speech was one from a candidate who is “in a groove.”
On Tuesday, PBS host Tavis Smiley appeared on Morning Joe to enlighten viewers with his presidential election analysis. What did we learn? Apparently progressivism is a gift that keeps on giving. According to Smiley, Bernie Sanders should take a page out of Jesse Jackson’s playbook, without Jesse Jackson there would have been no Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton is a much better candidate thanks to Bernie Sanders.
The vicissitudes of election coverage over the past year have made one thing certain: Morning Joe has been on an emotional rollercoaster with Republican nominee Donald Trump. In late 2015 and early 2016, Trump was regularly featured on the show and praised for his unprecedented primary performance. Now, as Trump’s favorability plummets in the polls, so too does his favorability among the Morning Joe hosts.
The American media cabal is…ridiculous. They are the Borg of politics - many entities, but of but one Leftist mind. Led around by their noses by whatever hack government-growing politician is before them at that moment.
Just as they calmly repeated the "ventriloquized" Obama line on the Iran deal, so they're doing with the latest ruling on "Net neutrality."
The two Democrats being hailed as heroes of the gun control filibuster, Senator Cory Booker and Senator Chris Murphy, have used MSNBC to their advantage as they prepare for a vote on the Senate floor this Monday. Thursday, Andrea Mitchell Reports featured Senator Booker, and on Friday Senator Murphy appeared on Morning Joe. What emerged from both interviews: Republicans will not be able to face their constituents if they don’t support these measures, and terrorism creates a window for gun control reform.
Once again, it’s Azteca America that takes the cake for the most consistently one-sided, over-the-top anti-Trump news coverage on U.S. Spanish-language television.
Frequent MSNBC guest and Huffington Post senior politics editor Sam Stein thinks that Donald Trump is very close to “talking about internment camps.” Rather than discuss the mounting concerns over the pending influx of people into our country, on Thursday, the Morning Joe squad picked apart Trump’s every word at a rally in Atlanta.
Como era de esperar, como consecuencia del cuestionamiento del aspirante presidencial republicano Donald Trump a la imparcialidad del juez federal estadounidense de herencia mexicana que preside el juicio contra la Universidad Trump, Jorge Ramos de Univisión vuelve a la carga describiendo a Trump como un racista total.
El presidente de la Cámara de Representantes, Paul Ryan, y los miembros republicanos de ese cuerpo anunciaron un plan integral para combatir la pobreza en Estados Unidos, pero hasta ahora Univisión y Telemundo han ignorado con esmero la propuesta.
On Wednesday, the Morning Joe crew provided viewers with their daily dose of Hillary Clinton propagandizing. Over the past few weeks, Clinton crossed the finish line in her Democratic primary battle, promoted her foreign policy positions in the wake of Orlando’s terrorism, and capitalized on the recent gaffes from her Republican opponent. Thanks to MSNBC, we are reminded that through it all, Clinton has found her voice.
