The nation’s leading Spanish-language network newscasts offered differing versions of the latest jobs report: one positive, the other negative. One network covers the jobs report fairly and objectively. The other, blinded by its anti-Trump animus, tells only half the story and finds a way to spin the report negatively.
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.
Viewers of Univision ́s weekly evening news edition, Noticiero Univisión, were treated to an unusual sight: Anchor Ilia Calderón actually reporting on a recent Washington Post/ABC poll that found that President Trump's approval rating rose by fivepoints to an all-time high of 44 percent, albeit it took her a scant 29 seconds to cover all the good news for Trump (Telemundo News skipped it altogether).
Mexico, Spain and Canada, among other countries, all ask a citizenship question in their respective censuses, but facts like that are carefully hidden from Univision viewers in the network’s latest reporting on the Trump administration’s plan to restore the traditional citizenship question to the next U.S. census in 2020.
During the Trump administration Hispanic unemployment has hit five all-time record lows, but the nation’s number one Spanish-language television newscast, Noticiero Univision, once again blew off the latest blockbuster economic news for the country’s largest minority group, which participates in the American labor force at a higher rate than any other segment of the U.S. population.
Our domestic Spanish-language newscasts have continued to further an ongoing conspiracy theory, which alleges that the United States government is responsible for the deaths of unauthorized immigrants detained along the southern border. The most recent instance comes via Univision’s newscast.
El reporte investigativo más reciente de Univisión, titulado "Magnates de Dios", es uno más en un hilo extenso de cobertura sesgada contra instituciones de base de fe. Además, la serie sirve para echar lodo a un enemigo institucional de la cadena- lo cual también es parte de la historia sórdida de Univisión Investiga.
Univision’s most recent investigative report, titled “Magnates de Dios" (God’s Moguls), is the latest in a long-standing history of the network's bias against faith-based institutions. Additionally, the series serves to smear a perceived institutional enemy of the network- which is also a part of Univision Investiga’s sordid history.
The Trump administration’s winning record on Hispanic unemployment finally received a long overdue nod of recognition from top national Spanish-language media outlets Univision and CNN en Español. As unemployment among the nation’s largest minority group fell for the second consecutive, record-setting month, both Univision and CNN en Español trumpeted the news in their principal national evening news programs.
In “Politics and the English language,” George Orwell wrote, “political writing is bad writing” because “The great enemy of clear language is insincerity.”
En su ensayo “Políticas y el lenguaje inglés”, George Orwell escribió, “La escritura sobre política es mala escritura” porque “el gran enemigo de un lenguaje diáfano es la falta de sinceridad”.
