In advance of oral arguments before the United States Supreme Court, Univision’s open advocacy of DACA serves to remind us all that the network is little more than an immigration lobby with a broadcast license. Check out the full post to see UNews’s anchor Andrea Linares tees up her interview of a DACA advocate:
In this already divided country, USA's Suits spinoff Pearson paints ICE as the enemy, just for doing their jobs, in an ongoing storyline in the first season. Yoli Sandoval (Isabel Azzairza) is a DACA child who was brought to the United States at the age of two by her parents. ICE detained Yoli's mother after a routine visit a few episodes ago. Yoli attempted to help her mother, but an immigration lawyer tricked her into giving him money before he ran.
On Monday night, ABC’s new summer soap, The Grand Hotel, took a brief, albeit dramatic, moment to address yet another liberal agenda (surprise!)—illegal immigration. In the episode, titled “Suite Little Lies,” Felix (Adrian Pasdar), the fugitive criminal father of Yolanda (Justina Adorno) and Carolina (Feliz Ramirez) is hiding out in the hotel. After the threat of being discovered and sent to jail, Felix decides it’s best to leave the country and wants his daughters to join him.
Editors like Martin Baron at The Washington Post love to insist that the publisher or the owner doesn't really tell them what to do. But when they do, it gets disclosed in paragraph 33 on page A-10. This is what happened Saturday, in a syrupy Jessica Contrera splashy front-pager on "Dreamers" who decided to leave for Canada. The sympathetic illegal immigrant of the story, Sadhana Singh, went to college with a scholarship offered by Donald Graham, former publisher of the Post, "who would later bring Sadhana's story to the attention of Post reporters."
Univision has fired what amounts to its opening salvo in the 2020 U.S. presidential election: a deviously pro-Democrat promotion of the stances the candidates take on the nation’s immigration policy mess. The network that made a supreme effort to elect Hillary in 2016 is now touting the results of a immigration policy questionnaire it sent to the top 23 Democrat candidates for President (the total number of Democrats who have filed their candidacies with the Federal Election Commission is currently more than 160).
Nothing says "Thanksgiving" like some virtue-shaming dialogue about illegal immigration recited by a liberal Hollywood feminist, am I right? The Thanksgiving episode of CBS’s Murphy Brown even included a threat of physical violence to ICE agents and when that didn’t work, verbal intimidation was used.
On Tuesday, CNN’s New Day hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota brandished a decision by a California judge that temporarily halted President Trump’s recent executive action on asylum. Yet back in 2012 when it was former President Obama’s DACA order on the chopping block, hosts on CNN rushed to defend the President’s ability to enact immigration policy without Congressional approval.
The second episode of CBS’s rebooted version of the political comedy Murphy Brown aired October 4 and the chosen hot-button issues to punch were: bashing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ honesty and the introduction of a DACA student. If it were not for lame liberal talking points, this show would have no dialogue.
Casting neutrality to the wind, USA Today's Josh Peter is openly cheering for Serena Williams to take the record for most career grand slam tennis titles from the current record holder, Margaret Court (at right in photo with Williams). Peter briefly introduces Williams in his lead graph and then uses the next six paragraphs for an anti-Christian attack on the "homophobe" Margaret Court, now an ordained Pentecostal pastor who believes marriage is one man and one woman.
The cable network Freeform has announced that it is putting together a Party of Five reboot. For fans of the 90s classic, this sounds like good news, though they should know that it’s not quite the show they grew up with. Freeform’s twist on this all-American family is that it’s being replaced by a Mexican immigrant family whose parents have been deported.
You know what’s the best reason to subscribe to Billboard Magazine? No, not compelling artist interviews, or in-depth album reviews. It’s the hamfisted lectures on the evils of Donald Trump’s border policies that really make it worthwhile.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's AM Joy, race-obsessed MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson accused former FBI director James Comey of resenting Attorney General Loretta Lynch for being a "black woman boss," and then went on to accuse Trump administration members of being "terrorists" who "terrorize people into leaving the country" to promote "white nationalism."
