The champion of the Democrats’ most far Left immigration policies emerged from the first debate of the 2020 presidential campaign as the virtual ‘favorite son’ of debate sponsor Telemundo. Immediately following the debate, Telemundo’s cheerleading squad kicked into high gear, with visceral expressions of support from both journalist Carmen Márquez and Latino Victory Fund Vice President Mayra Macías.
The NBC/MSNBC/Telemundo panel that questioned the first 10 Democratic 2020 candidates spent most of Wednesday night’s debate cuing up liberal talking points and rarely confronted the contenders with the idea that their hard-edged leftism might drive away middle-of-the-road voters. An MRC analysis finds 39 of the questions at the debate echoed liberal talking points or were framed around a liberal world view, vs. only five that challenged liberal/Democratic assumptions.
Instead of showing off its journalistic prowess, Telemundo’s much-heralded first U.S. Spanish-language media interview with President Trump showcased the network’s penchant for dishonesty and deception. One of the most startling moments was when anchorman José Díaz-Balart doggedly professed ignorance of a January 2019 NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist survey that showed President Trump’s job approval rating among Hispanics climbing to 50%.
Showing its fierce determination not to cede an inch in liberal advocacy to arch-rival Univision, Telemundo, the Spanish language sister television network of NBC, has announced its decision to uncritically and wholeheartedly embrace climate alarmism in its coverage of climate and environmental news.
The first Democratic presidential debates are scheduled for NBC and MSNBC on June 26 and 27. The Comcast-owned networks have just announced a team of five moderators for the 20 candidates who are allowed to participate, or one moderator for each four contenders. Let’s review this tilted team of liberal journalists/activists.
The notoriously dishonest practice of indiscriminately labeling any and all opposition to illegal immigration as ‘anti-immigrant’ reared its ugly ahead once again on Telemundo. Despite the fact that the mission statement of the “We Build The Wall” organization is crystal clear that its sole purpose is to build and maintain “physical barriers inhibiting illegal entry into the United States”, it wasn’t enough to stop NBC and Telemundo anchor José Díaz-Balart from slamming the group on his newscast, for two nights in a row, as ‘anti-immigrant.’
With the outbreak of controversy over recent state abortion laws aiming to challenge the United States' currently extreme pro-abortion regime, pro-life voices have notably been able to make their case on several of the nation's top Hispanic television networks.
During the Trump administration Hispanic unemployment has hit five all-time record lows, but the nation’s number one Spanish-language television newscast, Noticiero Univision, once again blew off the latest blockbuster economic news for the country’s largest minority group, which participates in the American labor force at a higher rate than any other segment of the U.S. population.
Funny how in the eyes of the two leading Hispanic television networks, unauthorized immigrants practically have a “right” to cross over onto the U.S. side of the border, but American citizens, in this case volunteers aiding the United States Border Patrol (BP) in their increasingly overwhelming task, are all dangerous troublemakers.
Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló (D) achieved a lot of free press on the Mainland, with help and direction from CNN’s Jim Acosta. But Telemundo needlessly took the governor’s remarks a step further. In the clip below, Telemundo senior anchor José Díaz-Balart hypes Rosselló’s inflammatory remarks by misrepresenting them:
As news of the Mueller report’s arrival broke late Friday afternoon, newscasts scrambled to adequately cover a story that is sure to shake up the nation’s political landscape. Our major domestic Spanish-language newscasts were no different, but there was a clear tonal difference in how news of the Mueller report was covered.
