Unlike a lot of his fellow liberals, Jonathan Chait doesn’t believe presidential-debate moderators should be on-camera fact-checkers, but Chait’s reason for opposing the idea is unambiguously anti-conservative. In an item posted a few hours prior to Monday night’s Clinton-Trump clash, Chait argued that the way Republicans dealt with Candy Crowley’s intervention in a 2012 Romney-Obama debate “suggests the party would never tolerate such a role by the media on an ongoing basis,” given that “the GOP exists within an epistemic bubble that creates its own reality and disregards the findings of mainstream experts in economics, science, and other fields…Conservatives created this alternate ecosystem precisely to insulate their side from scrutiny from journalists who were not working within the conservative movement. And the simple reality is that, if debates become forums for media to subject candidate claims to fact-checking by the standards of independent arbiters, Republicans will refuse to participate in them.”
The latest edition of Al Punto, Univision's weekly public affairs show, featured a welcome surprise: the show finally broke its recent repetitive rotation of either outright anti-Trump or less than enthusiastic pro-Trump pundits.
Jorge Ramos ha encontrado un nuevo ángulo del candidato presidencial republicano Donald Trump que a él le parece lamentable.
In the presidential debate this coming Monday, Peter Beinart wants moderator Lester Holt to set a tone that the moderators of the subsequent debates would maintain. Each should “confront [Donald] Trump in ways they’ve never confronted a candidate before,” wrote Beinart earlier this week. “The more audaciously he lies, the more audaciously they must tell the truth. The risks of doing so are tremendous. The rewards are being able to say that when Donald Trump threatened American liberal democracy like no candidate in modern history, you met his challenge square on.” Beinart noted that “since Trump has largely stopped giving interviews to anyone except campaign sycophants and celebrity lightweights, the debates may serve as his last encounter with actual journalists.”
There’s a new aspect of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump that Univision anchor Jorge Ramos finds deplorable.
In what is clear reversion to form, Univision has chosen to air one-sided coverage that could best be described as Islamist apologia. The most recent instance comes in the wake of the terrorist attack at a shopping center in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
Tuesday's edition of Noticiero Univision reminds us that there are other issues for which the network will take an activist stance beyond immigration. And gun control is at the very top of that list. After noting a $5 million ad campaign launched by the National Rifle Association in favor of Donald Trump, Anchor María Elena Salinas pivoted away from the ad itself and to Trump's statements in order to disqualify the ad as false.
La obsesión de Univisión contra Trump no se limita solamente al candidato presidencial. Últimamente se ha extendido también a quien podría llegar a ser la primera dama de Estados Unidos, Melania Trump.
Univisión y Telemundo informan que hubo un aumento en el paso de inmigrantes no autorizados a través de la frontera desde México hacia Estados Unidos. Pero en marcado contraste, las cadenas de habla inglesa ABC, CBS y NBC todavía no han informado sobre esta tendencia creciente.
El presentador de Noticiero Univision Jorge Ramos persiste en justificar la iniciativa "Ramos debe irse" del MRC. Su columna de opinión de esta semana hace un llamado a los moderadores de los debates presidenciales a que abandonen la objetividad y se unan al debate.
Cortesía del Noticiero Telemundo nos llega uno de los ejemplos más extraños y desfachatados de cobertura noticiosa viciada que verán.
From a recent Noticiero Telemundo newscast, this is one of the stranger (and more grossly blatant) examples of media bias that you'll find. Here is how anchor María Celeste Arrarás introduced a story on how 1 out 4 Americans refuse to stop working while sick:
