The nation’s most prominent Spanish-language evening news anchor is, arguably, also its most prominent advocate for open borders; and he isn’t shy about using his many platforms and bylines in furtherance of that goal.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos continues to shill for gun control. This time, he does so on his Facebook Watch platform.
A College Republican-led campaign to add President Trump’s statue to the iconic Walkway of the Presidents on the grounds of the Puerto Rico Capitol building in San Juan has sparked outrage at several major media outlets, including Spanish news agency EFE and Univision.
Univision has fired what amounts to its opening salvo in the 2020 U.S. presidential election: a deviously pro-Democrat promotion of the stances the candidates take on the nation’s immigration policy mess. The network that made a supreme effort to elect Hillary in 2016 is now touting the results of a immigration policy questionnaire it sent to the top 23 Democrat candidates for President (the total number of Democrats who have filed their candidacies with the Federal Election Commission is currently more than 160).
Mexico, Spain and Canada, among other countries, all ask a citizenship question in their respective censuses, but facts like that are carefully hidden from Univision viewers in the network’s latest reporting on the Trump administration’s plan to restore the traditional citizenship question to the next U.S. census in 2020.
The notoriously dishonest practice of indiscriminately labeling any and all opposition to illegal immigration as ‘anti-immigrant’ reared its ugly ahead once again on Telemundo. Despite the fact that the mission statement of the “We Build The Wall” organization is crystal clear that its sole purpose is to build and maintain “physical barriers inhibiting illegal entry into the United States”, it wasn’t enough to stop NBC and Telemundo anchor José Díaz-Balart from slamming the group on his newscast, for two nights in a row, as ‘anti-immigrant.’
A recent edition of Univision Sunday political affairs show Al Punto proves that much of the impetus behind talk of impeachment still comes from the media and can, at times, be too much even for senior Democrats.
Univision’s Sunday political affairs show, Al Punto, featured both pro-life activist Adryana Aldeen and pro-abortion activist Ana María Archila debating new pro-life legislation in various states. Check out the full post to see Aldeen's argument, in which she makes a compelling case about both the value of human life and the importance of new, aggressive legislative efforts on the pro-life front.
In a rare, balanced segment on Univision's weekly public affairs show Al Punto, anchor Jorge Ramos invoked Reagan and brought abortion as an issue directly to the forefront. Check out the full post as Ramos and pro-Trump activist Paloma Zúñiga discuss a classic Reagan truism, and whether Hispanics are really culturally conservative as pertains to abortion.
The latest edition of Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto featured a remarkable debut, and displayed several lessons for conservatives on how to engage liberal media.
Univision’s news division continues to display chronic anti-Catholic bias, this time by injecting church sounds and imagery into a story about the Scouts, that has nothing to do with the Roman Catholic Church.
In a mixed-up, apples-to-oranges ‘news’ report, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos attempted to gainsay President Trump’s longstanding concern about the high cost of illegal immigration by citing earnings and tax revenues from all immigrants, both those who are lawfully present in the United States and those who are not.
Leveraging its unique capacity to speak candidly, in their own language with both asylum-seeking Central Americans and their coyotes, Univision is providing revealing coverage of the current, out-of-control crisis at America’s southern border.
Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló (D) achieved a lot of free press on the Mainland, with help and direction from CNN’s Jim Acosta. But Telemundo needlessly took the governor’s remarks a step further. In the clip below, Telemundo senior anchor José Díaz-Balart hypes Rosselló’s inflammatory remarks by misrepresenting them:
Once former San Antonio Mayor and secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro announced his presidential aspirations for 2020, it was only a matter of time before an inevitable syrupy sit-down with Univision’s Jorge Ramos. That time has come, with an interview on Facebook Watch.
MRC Latino is mostly known for its constant drumbeat pointing out and countering slanted or dishonest reporting in the U.S. Hispanic news segment. In recent months, the critique has often included the relative dearth of reporting on U.S. economic news.
The illegal and arbitrary detention of a Univision News team, headed by senior anchor Jorge Ramos, at Venezuela’s presidential Miraflores Palace serves to showcase the very real and present risks that are concomitant to the practice of journalism. Unfortunately, it also has the potential of birthing some very bad takes.
The push to strip our border enforcement agencies of any funding received a big boost from NBC's sister network, Telemundo. A recent report on the network's evening newscast served as a virtual infomercial for the "Defund ICE" movement, without offering any opinion or perspective to the contrary.
Hace apenas un mes el presentador de Telemundo y de la NBC, José Díaz-Balart, le decretaba enconadamente a su teleaudiencia que el presidente Trump se equivocaba sobre la existencia de una crisis de inmigración ilegal en la frontera sur de los Estados Unidos. Sin embargo, ahora el presentador se ha tenido que comer sus palabras.
Barely a month ago, Telemundo and NBC anchor José Díaz-Balart was harrumphingly telling his viewers that President Trump was all wrong about there being an illegal immigration crisis on the U.S. southern border. But now the anchorman has been forced to eat his words.
