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.
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.
