Although there were many instances of bias within Spanish-language news media, these were the worst.
In the latest piece of ObamaCare news that the liberal media have chosen to ignore, ABC, NBC, and Spanish networks Telemundo and Univision skipped on Thursday night and Friday morning word from United HealthCare from Thursday that it may withdraw from ObamaCare exchanges in the future after reporting losses of around $700 million for the year.
En anticipación del primer debate entre los aspirantes a la candidatura presidencial del partido Demócrata, la puntera Hillary Clinton se sentó con la presentadora de Telemundo María Celeste Arrarás para una entrevista severa, punzante... ¡ah! ¿a quien se engaña? Toda la cosa fue prácticamente un aviso comercial de la campaña de Hillary.
In the run-up to the first debate among the Democratic presidential candidates, frontrunner Hillary Clinton sat down with Telemundo anchor María Celeste Arrarás for a tough, hard-hitting…ah, who are we kidding? The whole thing was practically a Hillary campaign commercial.
Los principales noticiarios vespertinos de las dos mayores cadenas hispanoparlantes, Noticiero Univisión y Noticiero Telemundo, trasmitieron masivamente más noticias sobre Trump que las tres principales cadenas angloparlantes, un nivel extraordinario de cobertura.
Donald Trump’s entry into the U.S. presidential race changed all that. During the three months that elapsed between the day of Trump’s campaign announcement speech on June 16 and September 15, the day before the second Republican presidential candidates’ debate, Trump was the subject of 304 minutes of combined evening news coverage on Univision and Telemundo, compared with a total of 271 minutes on ABC, CBS and NBC.
Al juzgar por la cobertura de la visita del papa Francisco a los Estados Unidos, parecería que nuestros medios de prensa fueron bendecidos de manera milagrosa con el don de interpretar los pensamientos que están detrás de las palabras del Papa. La prensa de habla hispana no ha estado exenta de este fenómeno.
Judging from some of the coverage of the papal visit to the United States, it would appear that our media have been miraculously blessed with the gift of interpreting the thoughts behind Francis' words. The national Spanish-language media have also been prone to this phenomenon.
The CBS Evening News bid farewell on Thursday to Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal as the newscast, unlike ABC and NBC, dodged news that longtime Clinton aide Cheryl Mills testified before the House Select Committee on Benghazi plus word late Wednesday night that a former staffer who helped set up her private e-mail server would invoke his Fifth Amendment by not testifying before Congress.
On the heels of President Obama and Senate Democrats achieving the minimum threshold on Wednesday to preserve the Iran nuclear deal, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC applauded during their evening newscasts the “unstoppable” “done deal” that had Secretary of State John Kerry taking “a victory lap.”
Deeming it not pertinent for their viewership, ABC’s World News Tonight refused to cover on Tuesday night the latest round of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails released by the State Department despite having briefly reported on them on Monday hours before they were actually released. Joining ABC in their zero coverage of Clinton was Spanish-language network Telemundo (which also failed to mention the scandal on Monday’s Noticiero Telemundo before the e-mails were made public).
The nation’s two top Spanish-language public affairs shows led once again this week with coverage of Donald Trump’s campaign, with many interesting takeaways and conclusion from both programs. At this point, Univision is about to transform into The Trump Channel, so prevalent is its coverage of Trumpmania.
