Univision’s report on the raid of the San Juan administrative building carried out by the FBI shows a strong instance of bias by framing- wherein an otherwise neutral report is contaminated by biased framing.
El semanario político Al Punto de Univisión no es, bajo ninguna circumstancia, el lugar para encontrar análisis noticioso y comentario político equilibrados. Como ejemplo, basta con ver el episodio más reciente que inició en reacción a las audiencias contenciosas de la semana pasada en el Comité de lo Jurídico del Senado, en torno a la confirmación del juez Brett Kavanaugh al Tribunal Supremo de los Estados Unidos.
Univision’s Al Punto is not, by any measure of the imagination, the place to go when you are looking for balanced news analysis and political commentary. So, too, was the case with its most recent iteration, which opened with reaction to last week’s contentious hearings on the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.
Jorge Ramos’ most recent op-ed on Puerto Rico proves he’s never really cared about Puerto Rico, except as something to point at in his endless war against Donald Trump or in his quixotic promotion of Puerto rican separatists.
In an unlikely shift, Univision has launched a daily two-hour English-language newscast called UNews, carried on its sister Fusion channel. But is this more of the same of what we’ve come to expect on the mothership, or is this really something different?
A very interesting exchange occurred on Al Punto, Univision’s Sunday political affairs show, which featured Chef José Andrés and host Jorge Ramos. Ramos and José Andrés managed to discuss the federal bureaucracy with regard to the Trump administration’s response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico while leaving out one extremely critical element.
La edición más reciente del semanario político Al Punto de la cadena Univisión presentó una entrevista con el gobernador de Puerto Rico en el aniversario del paso catastrófico del huracán María sobre el territorio isleño. El presentador Jorge Ramos aprovechó la oportunidad para politizar aún más las postrimerías del huracán y propulsar una narrativa partidista.
The most recent edition of Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto featured an interview with the governor of Puerto Rico on the eve of the first anniversary of Hurricane María’s catastrophic landfall upon the island territory. Host Jorge Ramos took the opportunity to further politicize the aftermath of the hurricane and push a hyperpartisan narrative.
Retiring Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) went on the most recent edition of Univision's weekly political talker Al Punto, in order to discuss immigration and the Trump administration's response to the devastation that Hurricane Maria wrought upon Puerto Rico. But in the process of scoring a point against the administration, he smeared the United States Armed Forces.
Como observamos en una ocasión anterior, Univisión hizo el ridículo durante su cobertura horrendamente viciada de las "monerías" que dieron inicio a la batalla por la gobernación de Florida- pero CNN En Español dio clínica de cómo hacer un buen trabajo. Contrario a sus colegas angloparlantes, CNN En Español todavía se dedica a divulgar noticias fácticas.
Whereas, as we recently noted, Univision embarrassed itself with its horrendously biased coverage of the “monkey it up” flap that kicked off the election of Florida’s next governor, CNN En Español showed how it’s done. Unlike its English-language namesake, CNN’s Spanish-language network is still in the business of hard news.
On Thursday, NBC News was rocked by back-to-back investigative reports by The New York Times and The Daily Beast detailing breaches of journalistic integrity and threats to “smear” Ronan Farrow, who has since left the organization. His crime? Trying to expose Harvey Weinstein’s predatory behavior. If the accusations are accurate, it could explain why NBC superstar Matt Lauer was allowed to get away with what he was doing for decades.
