By any measure, the summer of 2017 has been an unusually rocky one for the Catholic Church.
Chalk up another doozy for fake news at Univision. It turns out that while anchor Jorge Ramos was out visiting with Klansmen to hype his ‘Hate Rising’ narrative in advance of last year’s election, the nation’s historic premier hate group was actually in the midst of a massive collapse in membership.
Univisión entró al nuevo año con un tropiezo. Volvió a mostrar su ceguera cuando se trata no solamente de conservadores sino también de noticias relacionadas con el segundo segmento más numeroso de la población hispano-estadounidense de la nación: los puertorriqueños.
NBC executives had planned to use video of the vulgar discussion between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Billy Bush to influence the election.
TMZ reported on Oct. 12, that NBC executives knew of the existence of this taped conversation before the The Washington Post released it to the public — although they’ve claimed to only know about it for about a week. The actual incident dates back to 2005.
The Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) have completely ignored the latest development in the V.A. scandal. On Monday, USA Today’s Donovan Slack reported that over the summer the V.A. “quietly stopped sharing data on the quality of care at its facilities with a national database for consumers despite a 2014 law requiring the agency to report more comprehensive statistics to the site so veterans can make informed decisions about where to seek care.”
So far, none of the broadcast networks have reported on this latest development.
Viewers of Friday's Noticiero Univision were treated to a prime example of bias by omission when the network reported only one side of the ongoing email controversy between former Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and Colin Powell. By now no one should be surprised as to which side of the story was the one that actually got Univision air.
It has been nearly a week since the State Department released its 2015 Annual Report on International Religious Freedom (IRF). To date, the broadcast networks have not even acknowledged the report or its findings; and major newspapers have offered perfunctory coverage.
The same day the MRC published a letter signed by more than thirty conservative leaders calling out the broadcast networks for failing to report on the extent of Christian genocide in Muslim-majority nations, ABC, CBS and NBC missed an opportunity to report on that very subject.
If a Republican Congressman had gotten into a physical altercation with a reporter at the GOP convention it’s a good bet it would have been plastered all over the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network and cable newscasts. But so far no one at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC or FNC has reported on Alan Grayson’s Tuesday scuffle, in Philadelphia, with a reporter that asked the Florida Democratic Congressman about domestic violence allegations made by his ex-wife.
Former Univision News analyst and Univision America radio host Helen Aguirre-Ferre appeared on Sunday's Al Punto, in what was her return to the program since joining the RNC as Director for Hispanic Media. Her interview with host Jorge Ramos went pretty much as expected.
Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos has seen fit to grace us with his latest hot take. In the process, he finds a way to tie that into the politics surrounding the current presidential election, blaming a very familiar culprit.
