The Big Three networks' evening newscasts on Monday all spotlighted Hillary Clinton's speech to the NAACP's annual convention in Cincinnati. ABC's Cecilia Vega played up how "Clinton's supporters waging a counter-convention of their own — a pro-Clinton super PAC...linking Trump to former KKK leader David Duke." CBS's Nancy Cordes contrasted Clinton's NAACP appearance with a detail about the racial makeup of the RNC: "Only about 20 of the 2,500 delegates are black, which is on par with the party's percentage at its convention back in 1964."
Hasta ahora la cobertura nacional del noticiero de Univisión sobre la plataforma del Partido Republicano se ha concentrado exclusivamente en el muro fronterizo, pero ha pasado por alto por completo otro acontecimiento de importancia para muchos de sus telespectadores: la inclusión de un lenguaje fuerte de apoyo a la estadidad de Puerto Rico en la plataforma republicana.
So far, Univision’s national evening newscast coverage of the GOP platform has solely focused on the border wall plank, but has completely missed another development of importance to many of their viewers: the inclusion of strong language endorsing Puerto Rican statehood in the Republican platform.
News of the evening terrorist truck attack in Nice, France first appeared at the Drudge report at 5:06 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time Thursday afternoon. By 5:28, Drudge was linking to an item noting that conducting a terrorist attack with a truck is something "that jihadist propaganda has suggested for several years."
Friday at 12:15 a.m. Eastern Time, hours after it was known that what had occurred was a terrorist attack, a tweet from the intrepid journalists (that's sarcasm, folks) at MSNBC.com told readers that the event was a "deadly truck crash."
Usted no lo sabría si solo ve los noticieros nacionales de televisión en español de Estados Unidos, pero el Centro de Investigaciones Pew acaba de publicar un estudio que muestra que entre los votantes hispanos del país el virtual candidato presidencial republicano Donald Trump tiene ahora los mismos niveles que tuvieron Romney y McCain en ese grupo electoral cuando fueron los candidatos del partido.
For over two weeks now, the press has insisted, based on almost no evidence, that many UK citizens who voted to leave the European Union weren't all that informed, didn't appreciate the implications of their vote, and now regret their decision. Two examples signify the press's desperation to cling to this meme. The first is their contention that post-referendum UK-based Internet search requests for basic information on the EU are coming entirely or mostly from "Leave" voters. There is no good reason to believe that. The second is their treatment of the obviously bogus, heavily-pranked, easily-beaten petition for a second EU referendum as if it's something real, when it obviously is not. These efforts are so over the top that they may strike some readers as psychologically troubled "Remain" supporters having a tough time adjusting to reality. Well, it turns out that this is a far from minor problem among "Remain" supporters.
Rage was evidently the order of the day for the hosts of Univision and Telemundo’s weekly public affairs shows, when they dedicated most of their programs to the subject of the failure of President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration to be upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States.
They should have known better, but it was apparently too good to check. Following the lead of the apparently shellshocked BBC, the Associated Press on Friday night included an item in its "The Latest" timeline on Great Britain's Thursday vote to leave the European Union about how "So many users are signing a petition for a re-run of Britain's referendum on European Union membership that they've crashed the House of Commons website hosting the document."
Then, for good measure, the wire service devoted a separate stand-alone report on the petition's attainment of "more than 1.6 million names" as "a measure of the extraordinary divisiveness of Thursday's vote to leave the 28-nation bloc." Sunday, the eponymously named Louise Mensch at the news, opinion, and commentary website Heat Street exposed the petition effort as a prank (HT Instapundit; bolds are mine throughout this post):
On WMAL's Mornings on the Mall radio show on Wednesday, The Daily Mail's David Martosko revealed the stark difference between journalists who cover Hillary Clinton versus those who cover Donald Trump: "Having spent time in...both the Hillary and the Trump bubble, I will tell you that...the reporters who are following around Hillary — a lot of them are Hillary fans. They're just in awe of her."
La cobertura de las presentaciones por vídeo de Hillary Clinton y Donald Trump en la reunión de la Conferencia Nacional de Líderes Hispanos Cristianos (NHCLC) del 2016 en la cadena de televisión en español Número 1 de Estados Unidos fue notable por la ausencia de una explicación de cómo responden los dos aspirantes presidenciales a las prioridades de la organización.
Al ver las noticias en las principales cadenas de televisión en español o inglés nadie se habría enterado de que mientras hacía campaña en Puerto Rico el aspirante socialista a la nominación presidencial demócrata, senador Bernie Sanders, anunció que si es elegido perdonaría a Oscar López Rivera. López Rivera fue condenado por fabricación de bombas y entrenar a otros en la forma de hacerlas y utilizarlas durante una ofensiva terrorista marxista por la independencia del territorio estadounidense de Puerto Rico durante la década de 1970 y principios de la década de 1980.
The Democrats’ socialist candidate for President of the United States, Bernie Sanders, was seriously tripped up this week in an interview with Univision’s León Krauze. When asked to explain the failure of socialist governments in Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil, Sanders completely clammed up, saying he has an opinion on the subject, but was unwilling to share it, as he is “focused on my campaign.”
