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.
Like a lot of the rest of the liberal media, Univision has clearly chosen to weaponize its fact-checking operation as part of its anti-Trump arsenal. On the evening of the President’s State of the Union Address, for example, the network’s heralded “Lie Detector” not only badly misfired against Trump, but also completely failed to catch a major fib told during the Democrats’ Spanish-language counter-message, which was delivered by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra.
The annual March for Life and Women’s March have become back-to-back events for two large, sharply clashing constituencies. By covering the Women’s March 17 times more than the March for Life, the top two national Spanish-language television newscasts in the United States reveal their clear preference for publicizing the agenda of one march, but not the other.
El Diario, New York’s leading Spanish-language newspaper, published an opinion piece written by an America’s Voice staffer which can best be characterized as pro open-borders propaganda.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos continues to triple down on in his ongoing war of words against proposed border security initiatives. His latest column picks up where his New York Times piece left off.
The New York Times recently saw fit to print an op-ed by Univision’s senior news anchor, Jorge Ramos, titled “Trump Is the Wall”. In doing so, the Times not only enables Ramos’ endless anti-Trump jihad, but provides an ample platform from which to further disseminate a series of assumptions and half-truths that further solidify Ramos’ status as the most biased national news anchor, regardless of network.
For Telemundo and the rest of the liberal media, there is apparently only one way to interpret statements by Donald Trump, Jr. in support of his father’s policies: the worst possible way. That was certainly the case following President Trump’s Oval Office speech on the need for building additional wall on the nation’s southern border. In a combination one-two anti-Trump punch, Telemundo anchor José Díaz-Balart blasted President Trump for “openly attacking immigrants” in the speech.
A nadie sorprende a estas alturas que Jorge Ramos es el presentador de noticias más liberal en los Estados Unidos, independiente de cadena, formato, o plataforma. Desde nuestros archivos les compartimos sus 5 peores momentos del 2018:
By now it is no mystery that Univision's senior anchor is also the nation's most outspokenly liberal anchor, across all networks and platforms. We've scoured through our archives in search of his five worst moments of 2018.
El congresista de Chicago Luis Gutiérrez ha sido un invitado frecuente en los noticieros hispanos durante tres décadas, pero esa era está a punto de llegar a su fin con el retiro inminente del congresista Gutiérrez. Mientras los noticieros hispanos buscan su próximo bombardero retórico congresional, aquí en MRC Latino le queremos dar a Gutiérrez un despido propio, y desearle un feliz hasta nunca.
Chicagoland Congressman Luis Gutiérrez has been a regular staple of Spanish-language TV news shows for three decades, but that era is about to come to a close as his retirement approaches. As the Spanish-language newscasts scramble to find their next congressional bombthrower, we at MRC Latino want to give Gutiérrez a proper send-off.
Mientras revisábamos nuestros archivos para las recopilaciones de fin de año, nos topamos con este vídeo que por alguna razón se nos pasó compartir con ustedes. En la intersección del narcicismo y de la vanidad está el homenaje que Jorge Ramos brindó en ocasión del fallecimiento del presidente George Herbert Walker Bush en su semanario político Al Punto.
As we were scouring the archives for our year-end reviews, we stumbled upon this video that we forgot to share with you for some reason. At the intersection of narcissism and vanity lies Jorge Ramos’ remembrance of President George Herbert Walker Bush on his Sunday political talker Al Punto.
