Univision anchor Jorge Ramos continues his long standing habit of granting disproportionate airtime to separatists when covering matters pertaining to Puerto Rico.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos seems stunned at the percentage of Hispanic support for building the wall, based on a recent Univision-Latino Decisions poll. But such support would only come as a surprise to someone who is out of touch with the community.
Never wasting a chance to grant prime-time exposure to their leftist darlings – in this case socialist politicians from Puerto Rico– three of the nation ́s Spanish-language news networks each featured one of these leftist role models during their coverage of the government crisis in Puerto Rico. The 11-day chaos in the U.S. territory ended on July 24th, with the resignation of Democrat governor Ricardo Rosselló.
On a segment that aired on its website, Entravision’s Sunday political affairs show Politica Ya submitted its entry onto the longstanding effort to make Julián Castro a thing --- this time, casting the only Latino candidate in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary as the underdog that defies all the odds. The report got going with biographical details intended to convey a had sell of Castro to viewers. But ultimately, the interview veers into the policy most important to our domestic Spanish-language media.
Near the end of its evening newscast Telemundo, NBC’s Spanish-language affiliate network, recently had the temerity to treat its viewership to two and a half minutes of good news. Three cheers for a buoyant economy in which Latinos make up 63% of new homeowners in the United States.
Univision’s Spanish-language newscast was totally silent on both Trump’s Title X regulation on abortion, and Leana Wen’s resignation from Planned Parenthood. Check out the full post to see how anchor Aranxta Loizaga frames Planned Parenthood in a most favorable light by claiming that Trump's new regulation is “Hailed by Religious Conservatives”, and “denounced by medical organizations and women's rights groups”.
The Trump Administration’s announcement of massive deportations threw the nation´s liberal Spanish-speaking media into a panic last week. Wide-eyed newscasters provided all sorts of advice on how to react to the raids and evade law enforcement.
As soon as Trump announced his re-election campaign, CNN en Español knew it had its topic for its weekly program “Choque de Opiniones”, which displayed a false sense of non partisanship between the special guests. But at times, anti-Trump snark took precedence over substantive policy discussions.
Telemundo and Univision combined to spend almost five minutes reporting on the findings of a new Pew Center study regarding the growth of the Hispanic population in the United States. Appropriate coverage, one might say, for the nation’s leading news purveyors to the aforementioned segment of the population that, according to both reports, hit the 60 million mark.
Viewers of Univision ́s weekly evening news edition, Noticiero Univisión, were treated to an unusual sight: Anchor Ilia Calderón actually reporting on a recent Washington Post/ABC poll that found that President Trump's approval rating rose by fivepoints to an all-time high of 44 percent, albeit it took her a scant 29 seconds to cover all the good news for Trump (Telemundo News skipped it altogether).
Carmen Yulín Cruz, the radical separatist Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, made yet another appearance on Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto. Watch as Cruz, national co-chair for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, minimizes host Jorge Ramos’ recent arbitrary detention in Venezuela while attempting to dance around her failure to condemn the brutal dictatorships in Cuba and Venezuela.
After months of saying there was no crisis at the southern border, the media have now changed their tune, as has the Democratic Party, but that does not mean that the Democratic Party is at peace with itself. In the aftermath of an embarrassing defeat, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive firebrands for living in "their Twitter world." On Monday's CNN Newsroom, co-founder of The Beat DC, Tiffany Cross joined co-host Poppy Harlow and CNN analyst Molly Ball to take AOC's side and to declare that the poor conditions at the border are due to the fact that the migrants are not white.
