For Estrella TV’s evening newscast, the horrific shooting in Gilroy, CA is little more than a segue into a fact-free smear of the National Rifle Association. Check out the full post as anchor Adriana Yáñez coldly transitions from the lead story on the horrific shooting at Gilroy, California, the aforementioned NRA hit piece.
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:
Reaching far its usual advocacy for open borders, Univision has now seen fit to instruct its viewers as to why “Latinx” is a thing. Seriously.
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.
