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.
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. Angry that she would negotiate with President Trump to save the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), they refused to let her speak. And interestingly enough, ABC was the only network in the Big Three (ABC, CBS, and NBC) to ignore the incident.
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.
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.
RESTON, Va — On Friday morning, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell and MRC Latino Director Ken Oliver-Mendez released statements in reaction to Fusion/Univision anchor Jorge Ramos receiving the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Political Journalism.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos made yet another appearance on Fox News' Hannity, and reeled off an interview that was an exercise in contradictions and inconsistencies.
La transmisión del 7 de febrero del Noticiero Univisión Edición Nocturna trajo un poco más que la acostumbrada dosis de sesgo y énfasis en la línea editorial de la "resistencia" al gobierno del presidente Donald Trump en Washington. En esta ocasión, los televidentes presenciaron además un claro esfuerzo de desvío de la realidad, combinado con una calumnia garrafal contra los conservadores y hasta un poco de relativismo especulativo.
Much of our reporting on Univision's institutional biases centered around the fact that the network required certain regulatory relief that was likeliest to come in a Clinton administration. But it appears that the Obama administration has already provided some of that relief on the way out.
El 2016 se acerca a su fin, y aqui estan las cinco noticias de MRC Latino que cautivaron su atencion y ayudaron a exigirle cuentas a la prensa:
La pregunta sopesa sobre nuestros medios domésticos de prensa hispana: "¿Por qué votaron los hispanos por Donald Trump?" Mientras se acerca la inauguración del 45to. presidente de los Estados Unidos, nuestras dos cadenas principales tomaron rutas divergentes en pos de afrontar la pregunta.
The question hangs heavy over our domestic Spanish-language news media: "Why did Hispanics vote for Donald Trump?" As the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States continues to approach, our two leading networks took widely divergent approaches to this question.
For Jorge Ramos, evidently the greatest moral imperative in his life is to thwart the enforcement of U.S. immigration law. What else can explain the decision of the self-professed former Catholic, agnostic senior news anchor of Univision to use the fleeting seconds of his only encounter to date with Pope Francis to plead on behalf of 'the immigrants who Trump wants to deport'?
