The nation’s main domestic Spanish-language networks have largely refused to pre-empt their evening newscasts in order to carry the daily White House press briefings on the Trump Administration’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic. At best, viewers receive piecemeal information that is filtered through the network’s own biases. At worst, viewers are exposed to outright fake news.
Liberal critics are raving about a new film about one of their most cherished issues: abortion -- and they even managed to tie it to the Chinese coronavirus! The PG-13 film revolves around a 17-year-old character named Autumn (Sidney Flanigan) who leaves her home in Pennsylvania, where parental consent for abortion is required, to get an abortion at a Planned Parenthood in New York City.
It’s absurd for a media company that traffics in liberal bias like The Atlantic to continue to bill itself as being an “[i]ndependent” news source — especially when both of its parent companies’ chief executives are liberal donors. Federal Election Commission Records reveal that Emerson Collective Founder/President and Atlantic co-owner Laurene Powell Jobs gave thousands exclusively to Democratic presidential candidates (Emerson Collective owns a majority stake in Atlantic Magazine).
As COVID-19 continues to spread, so do the insidious comments by the likes of CNN En Español anchor Juan Carlos Lopez, who turned a report on the correct preventive measures to take against the virus into an opportunity to call U.S. Rep Matt Gaetz a clown for wearing a gas mask to work.
Univision’s coverage of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s dangerous tirade against TWO sitting Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States showcases simultaneous biases by omission and by commission- and abortion is the point of intersection.
A recent sympathetic article on abortion in Bloomberg Businessweek offered a textbook lesson in liberal media bias. Written by Cynthia Koons and Rebecca Greenfield, the February 27 article’s headline whined that “Abortion Clinics Are Getting Nickel-and-Dimed Out of Business.”
The latest edition of Univision’s Sunday political affairs show, Al Punto, featured a segment wherein the network’s chief apologist for “democratic socialism” asked his first question regarding Sen. Bernie Sanders’ controversial support for the Castro dictatorship’s “Literacy Brigades”.
Senator Bernie Sanders’ rise to Democratic primary frontrunner, fueled by significant Latino support en route to a smashing victory in the Nevada caucuses, prompts an examination of the role that the nation’s leading Spanish-language networks have had therein.
Univision covered its own acquisition on its “Edicion Digital (Digital Edition)” noon newscast, following earlier reports that the beleaguered network had finally come to terms with a potential buyer.
Though The New York Times is undeniably liberal in its reporting, it has been distinctly cool in coverage of the most left-wing Democratic candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). It was obvious back in 2016, when reporters tried to pester Sanders out of the race against Hillary Clinton. Is it principled ideology on the part of reporters, or partisan fear? Either way, the paper fired a shot across Bernie’s bow Sunday with a story bluntly warning Sanders he better watch out, then laid out why, even using an old insult to Ronald Reagan: “Sanders, the Teflon Candidate, Faces New Tests as a Front-Runner.”
Was Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s inability to identify Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador a limited Latino-interest issue or a moment that warranted broader coverage as a campaign-defining “deer-in-the-headlights” gaffe? The liberal media, hamstrung by soft bigotry and blinded by double standards.
