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.
Nearly a year after Donald Trump announced his campaign for President, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos finally decided to conduct an interview with a supporter of the candidate who consistently led the Republican presidential field since the summer of 2015, and who has now emerged as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
The anti-law enforcement bias prevalent in the way Univision covers the news isn’t limited to bias against enforcement of U.S. immigration law. It also extends to include bias against voter ID laws across the country - laws that are designed to protect against voter fraud and safeguard the integrity of the American electoral process.
A lot of big-time journalists believe they speak truth to power, but according to Esquire’s Charles Pierce, the attitude of the elite media toward presidents and certain presidential nominees is pretty much the opposite: “giddiness in the face of power.” Because of that longstanding state of affairs, suggested Pierce in a Tuesday post, “a fully armed and operational bullshit station” better known as Donald Trump might be the next POTUS.
Pierce conceded that Democrats John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton benefited from credulous and even reverent coverage, but he devoted much more space to how Republicans had been similarly advantaged. He claimed that “the real precedent for the helplessness of the elite political press” was its treatment of Ronald Reagan, stating that Reagan's "constant disengagement from the truth were chalked up to his lifetime as a 'storyteller,' his love for 'parables,' and, very late in his term, his advancing age...The elite political press simply was not prepared to call the man a liar. It would not have been sporting. It would have been against The Rules."
Como de costumbre.
El programa semanal de Jorge Ramos Al Punto en Univisión le da al periodista convertido en activista una plataforma semanal para redirigir prácticamente todos los temas hacia Trump.
