Gone are the days when the nation’s leading Spanish-language networks would cover the U.S. presidency with adversarial scrutiny. Their coverage of the Democrats’ efforts to pack the Supreme Court proves their pivot to advocacy propaganda.
Watch as anchors from Telemundo and Univision, respectively, hail Democrat efforts to pack the Court:
NACHO LOZANO, TELEMUNDO: A revolutionary expansion of the U.S Supreme Court seeks to expand those seats thanks to a bill by the Democrats, from the current 9 Justices to a total of 13. This would be the first Court reform in 152 years. If filed, the bill would face stiff opposition from Republicans.
ARANTXA LOIZAGA, TELEMUNDO: The Court is currently made up of three liberal Justices and six conservatives, three of which were nominated by the now-former President Trump. The Republican minority has already labeled this Democratic effort as a direct assault on the Judiciary.
BORJA VOCES, UNIVISION: And in Washington, Democrats will file a bill to expand the Supreme Court from nine Justices to thirteen, which Republicans oppose. President Joe Biden announced the formation of a bilateral commission to study the structure of the Supreme Court, to wit -- the amount of Justices, and the length of their terms. Thus keeping his campaign promise to unite a divided nation.
Mind you, these are the same people that reported extensively on the Last Wishes Clause of the Constitution of the United States when Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away. They don’t even bother to hide their partisan intent anymore. “Revolutionary!” says Telemundo. “Promise Kept!” says Univision. As if it wasn’t clear enough to viewers, the anchors mention that President Trump appointed three conservatives. The unstated lede, of course, is that the court-packing is a needed curative to the Bad Orange Man.
Needless to say, there is no mention of the history of previous attempts to pack the court, or any substantive mention of opposition to court packing. There’s nothing but cheerleading at the prospect of a far-left Supreme Court that aligns with the networks’ corporate interests.
