Compared to MRC Latino’s original study five years ago, the two main Spanish-language evening news broadcasts in the U.S. have become even more heavily skewed to the left. Out of 812 stories on U.S. politics and policy, more than 70 percent were slanted in a liberal direction, compared with 240 stories (29.6%) that were balanced or neutral and only two (0.2%) which were favorable to conservatives.
On a segment that aired on its website, Entravision’s Sunday political affairs show Politica Ya submitted its entry onto the longstanding effort to make Julián Castro a thing --- this time, casting the only Latino candidate in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary as the underdog that defies all the odds. The report got going with biographical details intended to convey a had sell of Castro to viewers. But ultimately, the interview veers into the policy most important to our domestic Spanish-language media.
Univision’s Spanish-language newscast was totally silent on both Trump’s Title X regulation on abortion, and Leana Wen’s resignation from Planned Parenthood. Check out the full post to see how anchor Aranxta Loizaga frames Planned Parenthood in a most favorable light by claiming that Trump's new regulation is “Hailed by Religious Conservatives”, and “denounced by medical organizations and women's rights groups”.
As soon as Trump announced his re-election campaign, CNN en Español knew it had its topic for its weekly program “Choque de Opiniones”, which displayed a false sense of non partisanship between the special guests. But at times, anti-Trump snark took precedence over substantive policy discussions.
The champion of the Democrats’ most far Left immigration policies emerged from the first debate of the 2020 presidential campaign as the virtual ‘favorite son’ of debate sponsor Telemundo. Immediately following the debate, Telemundo’s cheerleading squad kicked into high gear, with visceral expressions of support from both journalist Carmen Márquez and Latino Victory Fund Vice President Mayra Macías.
Add Spanish-language Estrella TV to the disturbing list of media outlets that have decided to celebrate, rather than critically report on, one of the latest societal aberrations being promoted by the Left: child drag queens. Calling it a “beautiful story”, Estrella TV anchor Adriana Yañez hailed the nine-year-old Texas boy who last year was a featured performer in the Austin International Drag Festival.
Showing its fierce determination not to cede an inch in liberal advocacy to arch-rival Univision, Telemundo, the Spanish language sister television network of NBC, has announced its decision to uncritically and wholeheartedly embrace climate alarmism in its coverage of climate and environmental news.
As has been documented over the years by MRC Latino, Spanish-language television in the U.S. has long been plagued by an overwhelming amount of messaging in favor of all kinds of gun control measures. Veteran Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, in fact, is well known for leading that charge.
