2016 Democratic Convention
Las relaciones estrechas te llevan tan sólo hasta cierto punto, como se comprobó recientemente cuando Tom Pérez, presidente del Comité Demócrata Nacional fue sorprendido en pifia por Jorge Ramos en la edición de Al Punto de la semana pasada.

Cozy relationships will only take you so far, as was proven when DNC Chairman Tom Pérez got caught trying to pull a fast one on Univision's weekly Al Punto talker.
Now that Facebook and more recently Google have designated it as one of several approved "fake news" identifiers, the profile of Snopes.com, a website which has been using “fact-checking” as a shield to advance a left-supporting, right-bashing agenda for over two decades, has risen. Its quality certainly hasn't. Recently, the website shamelessly used the same sensible argument others have used for decades about the gender-based "pay gap" myth to defend Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who rejects that very same argument.
Demonstrating that the left will risk the reputation and credibility of virtually any of its cherished institutions in the name of defending the biased establishment press against its center-right competitors, the Harvard Library has published "Fake News, Misinformation, and Propaganda," a "research Guide" purporting to offer "a brief introduction to the spread of misinformation of all kinds and tools for identifying it."
At the Democratic convention, Bill Clinton accused Republicans of fabricating a “cartoon alternative” to the real Hillary Clinton. The Washington Monthly’s Martin Longman claims that Democrats don’t need to create cartoon versions of conservatives since there’s already “something cartoonish about the right,” and in that regard Donald Trump “seems like a natural successor” to Sarah Palin and (wait for it) Ronald Reagan and (wait again) Dwight Eisenhower. Conservatism, concluded Longman, has “always been a charade. It’s also a cloak or a mask for selfishness and greed that they gussy up in Bill Buckley style and sell us as intellectualism."
We recently detailed our concerns over how Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos might have crossed a line by writing an implicit endorsement of Hillary Clinton. His most recent column, however, has erased all doubt and crossed the final line between advocacy journalism and outright partisanship.
Both of this year’s leading presidential candidates have supporters on ugly, radical fringes of American political life. But so far, the nation’s top media outlets have employed a double standard in covering this phenomenon, routinely pointing out fringe supporters of Donald Trump and demanding the Republican presidential candidate denounce them, while essentially ignoring all the shady characters who not only support Clinton, but openly speak on her behalf on national television.
Recapping the media's most outrageously biased moments during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Now that he’s is the official Republican nominee, the Trump bashing is soaring to new heights. On Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Late Show, host James Corden teamed up with comedian Denis Leary to sing a new song: “Trump’s An A*sshole.”
Appearing on Tuesday's New Day, liberal Daily Beast contributor and recurring CNN guest Dean Obeidallah went ballistic after a fellow guest and Donald Trump supporter recalled that Khizr Khan has a history of ties to the Clintons as the immigration expert was an employee of the law firm Hogan Lovells LLP, which not only has represented the Clinton Foundation but also worked on immigration cases involving the controversial EB-5 visa program.
After former South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer recalled Khan's connections to the Clintons, the two got into a heated debate as Obeidallah incredulously accused the Trump supporter of "smearing" Khan by merely introducing his links to the Clintons into the political conversation.
