Univision's need to inject the specter of Donald Trump into every immigration story is getting out of hand, as we see from a recent report from a small town in Oaxaca, Mexico, that has closed its doors to Central American immigrants. But did Trump really have anything to do with this, or was something else at play?

 



La división de noticias de Univision es experta en reportar noticias que podrían ser de interés a su teleaudiencia nacional, mientras que a la misma vez ocultan elementos de la noticia que podrían ser dañinos al arco narrativo de la cadena o de sus intereses comerciales. El ejemplo más receinte de ese sesgo por omisión viene mediante la cobertura brindada a la racha de asesinatos cometidos por la Mara Salvatrucha en Long Island, Nueva York.



Univision's news division is particularly adept at covering stories that could be of interest to its national audience, while at the same time burying any element of the story that could be damaging to the network's narrative arc or business interests. The most recent example of that bias by omission comes via Univision's coverage of MS-13's murder spree in Long Island, New York.



La cobertura brindada por Univision a la confirmación de Neil Gorsuch al Tribunal Supremo de los Estados Unidos logró contarnos un gran cuento sobre la temible opción nuclear, mientras que a la vez logró omitir mención del bloqueo partidista demócrata contra Miguel Estrada en el 2001.



Univision's coverage of the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court managed to weave a grand tale about the fearsome nuclear option, while entirely omitting any mention of the partisan Democratic filibuster against Miguel Estrada. 



Univision shockingly airs another story that goes against its broader narratives: this time, by reporting on recently deported Mexican nationals that are quickly going on to find meaningful employment in their native land. Here's one such happy returning deportee, as depicted on Noticiero Univision on Monday, March 27th:



Tras varios días de silencio sepulcral, Univision finalmente informó sobre la horrenda violación de una niña menor de edad en una escuela secundaria de Rockville, en el estado de Maryland. Al hacerlo, sorprendentemente la cadena hizo -- aunque lo más seguro es que haya sido sin querer --, una admisión asombrosa que destruye tanto su narrativa acostumbrada como su agenda inmigratoria izquierdista.



After several days of silence, Univision finally got around to covering the horrific rape at Rockville (Maryland) High School. In so doing, the network aired a stunning admission that blows its liberal narrative and immigration agenda completely out of the water.



El reporte del Noticiero Univision sobre la conmutación de la sentencia de prisión del terrorista convicto de parte del expresidente Barack Obama es un ejemplo asombroso de noticia fabricada ("fake news").



Univision's report on President Barack Obama's commutation of the prison sentence of convicted terrorist Oscar Rivera López is an astounding case study in fake news. The story, which went entirely unreported on the evening ABC, CBS and NBC newscasts, took top billing on Univision newscast. 



Es de constancia en el récord que la prensa estáblishment nacional fue el gran perdedor de la recién concluída elección presidencial estadounidense, habiendo sido sorprendida por la elección de Donald J. Trump a la presidencia de los Estados Unidos. Sin embargo, la telecadena que más apostó y más perdió tambien parecer ser la menos que aprendió.



It is a matter of record that establishment national media lost big on Election Day, having been stunned by the election of Donald J. Trump to the presidency of the United States. But the network that had the most at stake and lost the most in this election seems to have also learned the least.
