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.
Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos and noted playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda recently had an interview in which they managed to talk about a lot of different things, while saying nothing and leaving out some major news regarding Hamilton's upcoming run in Puerto Rico.
El reporte investigativo más reciente de Univisión, titulado "Magnates de Dios", es uno más en un hilo extenso de cobertura sesgada contra instituciones de base de fe. Además, la serie sirve para echar lodo a un enemigo institucional de la cadena- lo cual también es parte de la historia sórdida de Univisión Investiga.
Univision’s most recent investigative report, titled “Magnates de Dios" (God’s Moguls), is the latest in a long-standing history of the network's bias against faith-based institutions. Additionally, the series serves to smear a perceived institutional enemy of the network- which is also a part of Univision Investiga’s sordid history.
Han pasado años pero al fin a Univisión parece interesarle cubrir un escándalo de email que toca hasta los más altos niveles del gobierno de los Estados Unidos. Y lo único que hizo falta fue que hubiese alguien con nombre Trump de por medio.
Years have passed but at long last, Univision appears eager to cover an email scandal that reverberates at the highest levels of government. And all it took was for there to be a Trump attached to it. On Univision's weekly public affairs show, Al Punto, Republican analyst Adolfo Franco does a fine job of redirecting any attempt to spin the Clinton e-mail scandal as being only about the use of personal -mails in the conduct of official government business.
