Univision’s TV news division gives us a mixed bag with its coverage of the arrest of Democratic donor Ed Buck on charges. One the one hand, there was a full disclosure that you don’t often see in media, but on the other hand, there was some pretty creative tiptoeing around critical elements of the story.



NBC and its affiliate networks have amped their climate alarmist coverage in the run-up to the United Nations Climate Action Summit to be held in New York later this month. Not to be outdone, Telemundo has weighed in. Not only does Telemundo correspondent Vannesa Hauc close her report with a bit of fear-mongering, but watch as anchor Felicidad Aveleyra bookends the report with a call to action:



Univision anchor Jorge Ramos takes to his Facebook Watch platform to promote illegal immigration by highlighting church sanctuary for those seeking to evade deportation.



Univision never misses an opportunity to showcase its media darling, especially if it’s during coverage of a storm. San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz is featured accusing Trump of "verbal incontinence."



Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ Facebook watch platform continues to take a hard stance in support for liberal policy items. A recent instance of “Real America” continues to push an extreme position on abortion. This brief segment captured the essence of Ramos’ coverage of abortion; pro-lifers are cast as extremists, and those who favor abortion are cast as brave defenders of our fundamental freedoms.



Univision’s Sunday evening newscast was quick to jump into the fray and label President Donald Trump’s statements on the city of Baltimore as a “racist attack”.



Telemundo just happened to have a camera crew at the ready as Mexican National Guards detained a Guatemalan national at the border with the United States. Convenient coincidence, or an escalation of the network’s advocacy for open borders? Watch as anchor José Díaz-Balart frames the report, which prominently featured a crying mother at the border so as to elicit sympathy from the audience:



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.
