America with Jorge Ramos
If these "Stuff Jorge Ramos Says" posts seem repetitive, it is because it is unprecedented for a national news anchor to go on the record with his opinions of a presidential candidate (published on multinational platforms), because the establishment media has aided and abetted this break with longstanding tradition, and because it is important to create preserve -consistent with the mission of the MRC - a record of these statements of bias.
Este artículo iba a ser redactado inicialmente como un preanálisis de la cobertura que nuestros medios nacionales de habla hispana darían a la noticia de un posible cambio de giro de Donald Trump en el tema migratorio. Por supuesto, eso se fue por la borda tan pronto Jorge Ramos entró ayer a su cuenta de Twitter.
This post was originally going to be written as a "what to expect" sort of pre-analysis to how our domestic Spanish-language news media might react to news of a potential Donald Trump shift on immigration. Of course, that pretty much went out the window once Jorge Ramos logged on to Twitter today.
We recently detailed our concerns over how Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos might have crossed a line by writing an implicit endorsement of Hillary Clinton. His most recent column, however, has erased all doubt and crossed the final line between advocacy journalism and outright partisanship.
Jorge Ramos' latest column clarifies and brightens a formerly blurry line between journalism and advocacy; between neutrality and partisanship, tacitly endorsing Hillary Clinton for President in the process.
Earlier, we showed how Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos gave an immigration lecture to the father of a young man murdered by an illegal immigrant gang member. Sadly, it wasn't just Ramos, and Univision News went further.
Seldom will you see such a clear case of advocacy journalism as this: Jorge Ramos pitching comprehensive immigration reform to the father of a young California man murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2008, just three doors down from his home. But this is exactly what Fusion viewers saw last night as part of the Univision affiliate's coverage of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
Pocas veces verán un ejemplo tan claro y contundente de periodismo de agenda como esto: Jorge Ramos vendiéndole reforma migratoria integral al padre de un joven de California asesinado por un indocumentado en el 2008, a tan sólo tres puertas de su casa. Sin embargo, ésto es precisamente lo que presenciaron los televidentes de Fusion el lunes en la noche como parte de su cobertura de la Convención Nacional Republicana en Cleveland.
Presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton hasn't even chosen a running mate, nor is the process open to a vote. That hasn't stopped Univision from clearly voicing its choice for Vice President: Julián Castro, former mayor of San Antonio and current Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
La presunta nominada demócrata Hillary Clinton aún no elige a su compañero de papeleta, ni está el proceso abierto a votación. No obstante, ello no impide que Univisión manifieste su preferencia por el exalcalde de San Antonio, Texas y actual Secretario de Vivienda: Julián Castro.
Former Univision News analyst and Univision America radio host Helen Aguirre-Ferre appeared on Sunday's Al Punto, in what was her return to the program since joining the RNC as Director for Hispanic Media. Her interview with host Jorge Ramos went pretty much as expected.
One glaring question remained in the wake of Univision's coverage of the closure of Hillary Clinton's email scandal: Where was Jorge Ramos?
