The battle to prevent a question on U.S. citizenship status in the upcoming 2020 Census has driven Univision beyond its usual brand of activism. Now, the network has evolved into being an active participant in the legal proceedings surrounding the question.
The debate over newly-enacted pro-life legislation in various states continues to roil Spanish-language media. On one major national outlet there appears to be no debate, but rather a one-sided monologue. Check out the full post to see two clips from Entravision’s weekly political affairs show Politica Ya (and its prior version, Perspectiva Nacional) that are precisely a year apart, that showcase a strong pro-abortion bias, as voiced here by host and anchor Tsi-Tsi-Ki Félix:
As sure as the Sun rises in the East, Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos will find a way to renew his all-too-frequent calls for anti-gun legislation. A recent opinion column mashes violence in Mexico with incidents in the United States in order to make the same old points.
With the outbreak of controversy over recent state abortion laws aiming to challenge the United States' currently extreme pro-abortion regime, pro-life voices have notably been able to make their case on several of the nation's top Hispanic television networks.
Los Angeles-based Estrella TV’s coverage of the Trump administration's latest immigration proposal is so off base and inflammatory that it makes Univision look like a paragon of journalistic virtue in comparison.
A recent episode of Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos’ “Real America”, now shown on Facebook Watch, builds upon a series of historical inaccuracies and sophistries in order to aid and abet the ongoing effort to soft-sell democratic socialism.
Univision’s foray into digital media comes to an expected and, with the announced sale of its digital media portfolio. As the Spanish-language media giant limps back to its core business, it’s worth looking at what led to this point, and what follows from here.
As the issue of Puerto Rico funding was in the national news again, the liberal media turned to their favorite anti-Trump personality on the island, Bernie Sanders presidential campaign co-chair and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, as opposed to Governor Ricardo Rosselló (D) or the territory’s sole non-voting representative in Congress, Jenniffer González (R).
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos kicked off the most recent edition of his Sunday political affairs show Al Punto by turning his attention to what really matters, and asking the most pressing question of the day: what do the Democrats want now?
As news of the Mueller report’s arrival broke late Friday afternoon, newscasts scrambled to adequately cover a story that is sure to shake up the nation’s political landscape. Our major domestic Spanish-language newscasts were no different, but there was a clear tonal difference in how news of the Mueller report was covered.
Our domestic Spanish-language newscasts have continued to further an ongoing conspiracy theory, which alleges that the United States government is responsible for the deaths of unauthorized immigrants detained along the southern border. The most recent instance comes via Univision’s newscast.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ most recent column is a recent rehash of recurring tropes, but also features a strange apologia for radical liberal Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as well as the distinct odor of censorship.
The United States Senate finally held a vote on the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act. The vote tally fell along mostly partisan lines and ultimately failed. Inexplicably, none of this was reported on any of the leading national Spanish-language newscasts.
The controversial Green New Deal, pitched by freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), received no coverage whatsoever from the nation’s leading Spanish-language networks, despite broad reaction that was equal parts cheering, revulsion, and mockery.
Univision’s weekly political affairs show Al Punto recently featured a familiar guest, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Pérez, as well as the rollout of some familiar tropes - just in time for the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
In one of the more blatant cases of bias by omission in memory, the nation’s leading Spanish-language newscasts blacked out any mention of President Trump’s recent roundtable with a group of Hispanic pastors from all over the country.
Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos doesn’t even bother to contain his biases anymore, as shown on a recent segment of Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto. Watch as Ramos asks an immigration advocate whether a wall would work, and then agrees sotto voce with the advocate’s answer:
El programa en Facebook Watch del presentador del Noticiero Univisión Jorge Ramos confirma nuestras peores sospechas sobre el giro editorial del programa. Su resumen de fin de año, en particular, representa una apuesta triple a los impulsos activistas de Ramos, y aplaude abiertamente a todo tipo de activista liberal.
Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos’ Facebook Watch show confirms all our worst suspicions about the editorial direction of the show. Its year-end episode, in particular, represents a tripling down on Ramos’ activist impulses, and openly cheerleads for liberal activists of all stripes.
En días recientes, el veterano presentador de Univisión Jorge Ramos le hizo una entrevista al célebre dramaturgo Lin-Manuel Miranda en la que abordaron muchos temas sin realmente decir nada y menos sobre una importante noticia respecto a la presentación de la obra Hamilton en Puerto Rico.
