The ‘hate crime hoax’ phenomenon is alive and well at Telemundo. The Spanish-language sister network to NBC really made a fool of itself in a story on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) annual “Year in Hate” report.
Over the weekend, NBC ran a couple of noteworthy reports on the issue of border security. One focused almost entirely on locals near the border who are complaining about a possible wall, while the other report, as it devoted attention to both sides of the issue, also showed a border security activist being asked by reporter Morgan Radford to respond to critics who accuse him of being a "racist" who wants to "hunt" Mexicans.
Sunday's NBC Nightly News ran the kind of pro-gun story one rarely sees in the dominant media as a full report was devoted to the issue of churches getting some of its members to train and bring guns with them for security.
Barely a month ago, Telemundo and NBC anchor José Díaz-Balart was harrumphingly telling his viewers that President Trump was all wrong about there being an illegal immigration crisis on the U.S. southern border. But now the anchorman has been forced to eat his words.
Between Saturday evening and Monday morning, NBC, ABC and CBS devoted a stunning 19 minutes 5 seconds to falsely accusing teenagers who participated in the March for Life of racism following a confrontation with left-wing activists. That was after the broadcast networks only managed to provide a pathetic 58 seconds of coverage to Friday’s annual demonstration protesting the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision legalizing abortion.
On Saturday, people were outraged after video surfaced appearing to show Catholic students attending the March for Life harassing Native American Vietnam veteran Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln Memorial. NBC Nightly News plastered the screen with the boys’ faces that evening while calling them “racist”. But additional video exposed that Phillips was the one who approached them and banging a drum in the face of one kid. But during NBC’s Sunday Today, they didn’t offer an update with the new development.
For Telemundo and the rest of the liberal media, there is apparently only one way to interpret statements by Donald Trump, Jr. in support of his father’s policies: the worst possible way. That was certainly the case following President Trump’s Oval Office speech on the need for building additional wall on the nation’s southern border. In a combination one-two anti-Trump punch, Telemundo anchor José Díaz-Balart blasted President Trump for “openly attacking immigrants” in the speech.
Another sure-fire sign of Trump Derangement Syndrome is when media outlets cannot even let a clever, humorous expression by the President go by without somehow finding a way to badmouth it or cast it in a negative light.
As if it was the most important news of all, Telemundo dedicated three slots of a recent edition of its national evening news - adding up to nine minutes - to promote an exclusive half-hour interview with Emma Coronel, the wife of Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán, the leader of Mexico's Sinaloa Cartel who is currently on trial in a New York federal court.
As Americans begun celebrating the holiday season, almost 300,000 French people took to the streets to protest a massive fuel tax hike proposed by President Emmanuel Macron to fight climate change. The protests turned violent Saturday as the now-rioters began digging up the streets of Paris and trying to construct barricades as police fought back with tear gas and water cannons. Despite this ongoing battle, ABC News had not reported one word about it on air. Not even on Saturday’s World News Tonight.
The ‘anti-immigrant’ label – typically used by liberal media outlets to tar those who either speak uncomfortable truths about illegal immigration or who simply support the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws – reared its ugly head again on Univision and Telemundo, this time as a result of Republican Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner speaking about the downside of illegal immigration in the city of Chicago.
Going by the coverage on Telemundo News, Senator Ted Cruz has no Latino supporters, of any age. And as Telemundo tells it in their latest report on the Senate race in Texas, the only reason apparently motivating people to vote is a desire to hand control of Congress to the Democrats.
