In June, when UK voters decided to leave the European Union in the "Brexit" referendum, the U.S. press told the American people that the UK economy would suffer greatly as a result. Moody's economist and max Hillary Clinton contributor Mark Zandi predicted that it would be "going down the rabbit hole." At CBS News, Mellody Hobson said that "they're acting as if a recession is a foregone conclusion."
It's one thing to predict a disaster that doesn't happen. It's quite another to predict bad news and have things turn out pretty darned well, which is thus far what has occurred. You'd never know it from reading U.S.-based establishment press coverage, but the UK economy, as reported in the UK Times, "ended last year as the strongest of the world’s advanced economies with growth accelerating in the six months after the Brexit vote."
American pop musician Moby (perhaps best known in his home country for “South Side,” his duet with Gwen Stefani), is a Hillary Clinton supporter not shy about personally offending half of his country. He recently talked to Kate Mossman of the left-leaning British magazine The New Stateman about “how dumb and delusional so many Americans are” for having voted for Donald Trump. “Because really -- in terms of the subsets of people who would vote for Trump -- you have to be delusional, or racist, or stupid. I am so confused as to the fact that such a high percentage of Americans are either really stupid or incredibly bigoted.”
Hillary Clinton’s failure to win the presidency means that her haters have reaped what they started to sow a quarter-century ago, argued former Times executive editor Jill Abramson in a Tuesday column for the liberal British newspaper The Guardian. “The activists, groups, think tanks and nonprofit ‘charities’ that made hay over the petty controversies that dogged [Clinton] had already succeeded in driving up her negative trust and honesty numbers well before the 2016 campaign,” wrote Abramson. “The garden was already planted; all Donald Trump needed to do is water it with his chants of ‘Crooked Hillary.’”
Thursday evening, Venezuela's Bolivarian Socialist government arbitrarily suspended the recall effort against "President" Nicolas Maduro, demonstrating beyond any doubt that the South American country now functions as a dictatorship. Given its gravity, this news, described in coverage at the Wall Street Journal as "a crisis of democracy," is not getting the visibility it should be receiving.
Los gastos recientes del gobierno de Barack Obama de decenas de millones de dólares para impulsar a los inmigrantes a hacerse ciudadanos de Estados Unidos a fin de que puedan votar en los comicios de noviembre no son la única prueba de que posiblemente se están usando fondos de los contribuyentes fiscales para favorecer la elección de Hillary Clinton.
The Obama administration’s recent expenditure of tens of millions of dollars to spur immigrants to become citizens and vote this November isn’t the only evidence that taxpayer funds are possibly being used to favor the election of Hillary Clinton.
Durante una entrevista con Megyn Kelly de Fox News, el presentador de Univisión Jorge Ramos reiteró su posición a favor de que la clase periodística del país abandone su postura tradicional de neutralidad en su cobertura de la contienda presidencial estadounidense.
Haaretz's Chemi Shalev bemoaned the state of the GOP on CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS on Sunday, and compared Donald Trump's remarks on "Second Amendment people" to the political climate in Israel in 1995 before the murder of major political figure: "It reminded me of the months preceding our late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin's assassination." Shalev later added that if "somebody...tried to hurt or harm Hillary Clinton tomorrow, I don't think anybody would be surprised."
On Friday, the Big Three and Spanish broadcast networks' evening newscasts all reported on Hillary Clinton releasing her joint tax returns with her husband, Bill, and how much they gave to charity. However, ABC and Univision conspicuously left out that the Clintons made almost all of their 2015 charitable donations to their own foundation. NBC's Kristen Welker (along with CBS and Telemundo) reported that the couple "donated just over $1 million to charity — virtually all of it to the Clinton Foundation."
Las principales cadenas de televisión en español de Estados Unidos -- Univisión y Telemundo --, prácticamente pasaron por alto los discursos en la Convención Nacional Republicana por parte de los padres de víctimas de crímenes violentos cometidos por personas que viven ilegalmente en el país, dedicando menos de un minuto al tema.
Top U.S. Spanish-language television networks Univision and Telemundo virtually buried the Republican convention speeches by the parents of victims of violent crimes committed by people who are living in the country illegally, devoting less than a minute to the subject.
