August 29th, 2019 5:08 PM

Univision Anchor: Fox News Rhetoric 'Transcending' into ‘Bullets'
August 11th, 2019 3:21 PM
The liberal media’s narrative that President Trump was somehow responsible for the mass shooting in El Paso last weekend has apparently expanded to also include Fox News. According to Univision anchor Enrique Acevedo, during an appearance on CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources”, Trump and Fox News host Tucker Carlson were responsible for rhetoric “transcending into…
ABC Hides Sexual Assault Allegations Against Northam’s Replacement
February 4th, 2019 9:09 PM
As the blackface/KKK scandal consumed Democratic Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, the party was calling for him to resign and to let “rising star” Justin Fairfax, the lieutenant governor, take over. But the young Democrat had his own problem in the form of a new sexual assault allegation. Despite the Monday accusations being seen by some as serious and credible, that evening’s ABC World News…
Trump's Hispanic Pastors Roundtable Gets No Coverage on Latino TV Nets
January 31st, 2019 5:03 PM

Three Strikes, You’re Out: Nets Skip Good Economy Three Nights Running
August 30th, 2018 3:40 PM

Lowest Ever Hispanic Unemployment Ignored By Univision, Telemundo
July 8th, 2018 10:30 PM
On the morning of July 6, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that Hispanic unemployment in the United States had reached its lowest level, 4.6%, in the 45 years since the agency first started keeping records on the statistic, back in 1973.

Jorge Ramos Eyeing Return to Mexico
March 28th, 2018 8:05 PM
In the midst of wrapping up a media tour hawking his latest book and on the heels of what he considers – because of the election of Donald Trump – the ‘worst time’ of his 35 years in the United States, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos now says he’s pining to return to Mexico.
Update: Nets Cover Women’s March Nearly 7X More Than March for Life
January 22nd, 2018 6:08 PM
Time is everything, especially when it comes to understanding the media’s priorities. At the end of January, there were two marches the same weekend both claiming to stand for women. But the network coverage was anything but similar.
Record-Low Unemployment is News on Only Two of Six Latino Networks
December 11th, 2017 3:34 PM
President Trump has observed that the media spend “as little time as possible” discussing positive economic news. The judgement of America’s “News Analyst in Chief” also certainly applies to the national Spanish-language media - a media segment that had special reason to inform their audiences of the latest unemployment numbers, as unemployment among Hispanics has…
Spanish Nets Complicitly Silent on Vile Anti-Gillespie Ad
October 31st, 2017 5:02 PM
Latino Victory is short, apparently, for Latino Victory At All Costs, as evidenced by the disgusting ad with which the organization has chosen to make a splash in the 2017 Virginia gubernatorial election. More troubling still is the fact that both major domestic Spanish-language television networks have so far ignored both the ad and its blowback in their national evening newscasts.
After Touting Angry Anti-GOP Crowds, ABC Ignores Pelosi Disruption
September 18th, 2017 9:20 PM
During a press conference in San Francisco, California on Monday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was shouted down by a mob of immigration activists who were demanding amnesty.

Azteca America Serves Up Wild Biases, Trashes Trump on Immigration
August 9th, 2017 10:31 AM
It is only natural that MRC Latino’s coverage of bias in Spanish-language news be directly proportional to market share - and centered, therefore, mostly on Univision and Telemundo. But as this wild clip below shows us, it is actually Azteca América that is the most consistently insane in its over-the-top bias.
ABC, NBC Ignore Trump Signing New VA Reform Bill into Law
June 26th, 2017 2:57 PM
For a media wallowing in the toxic political culture, one would think Friday’s bill signing of a massive overhaul at the scandal-ridden Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.) would provide a chance to show that Washington has accomplished something. Alas, it was not to be as ABC and NBC refused to directly cover this bipartisan achievement for the Trump administration.
