As the Central American caravans continue to roll through Mexico towards the U.S., some Univision hosts are acting like cheerleaders, including evening news anchor Jorge Ramos and morning show host Alan Tacher.
The mandatory machine recount in Florida wrapped up Thursday to the joy of Congressman Ron DeSantis as he unofficially became governor-elect. DeSantis won by 0.4 percent over Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. In spite of these facts, broadcast networks ABC and NBC, along with Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision, all refused to report DeSantis’s victory during their evening news programs.
In a recent interview with the Spanish media outlet El Intermedio, Univision's senior news anchor, Jorge Ramos, was completely upfront in revealing his disdain for the sizeable segment of U.S. Latinos who vote for Republicans, including for Donald Trump.
Las más recientes noticias en Univisión y Telemundo sobre las caravanas de centroamericanos rumbo a los Estados Unidos finalmente validan lo que el presidente Trump ha intentado advertir a la nación: que hay algunos hombres muy malos entre las casi 10.000 personas que atraviesan a México, al punto que algunas mujeres han decidido viajar por separado o apartarse de ellas.
The latest news reports on both Univision and Telemundo about the caravans of Central Americans heading to the United States have finally validated what President Trump has been trying to warn the nation about: that there are some very ‘bad hombres’ among the nearly 10,000 people now trekking their way through Mexico, to the point that some women have decided to either travel separately or drop out of them.
Para las dos principales cadenas de televisión hispana en la nación, las celebraciones anuales del "Día de los muertos" fueron más importantes que decenas de miles de latinos en los Estados Unidos consiguiendo puestos de trabajo y el nivel de desempleo más bajo en récord entre hispanos.
How convenient for the Democrats. A last-minute Univision Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) ad that ran on social media, featuring a line-up of the network's top talent, called on voters to base their votes only on core issues pushed by the Democrats, and left out the leading issue (the economy) promoted by Republicans
At the nation’s top two Hispanic television networks, the annual “Day of the Dead” celebrations were more important than tens of thousands of Latinos in the U.S. getting jobs, and driving unemployment among Latinos to yet another record low.
As a committed cheerleader of the caravans of foreign nationals currently making their way through Mexico to the United States, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos has shown himself adept at playing up the presence of children, downplaying the presence of both criminals and non-Central Americans, and most of all avoiding the fact that the vast majority of the people in the caravans do not even come close to qualifying for political asylum in the United States in the first place.
Univisión puede haber roto el indicador de la ironía con esta invitación particular: el congresista Luis Gutiérrez en el semanario político Al Punto para hablar de los recientes atentados por correo y tratar de establecer distinciones en el nacionalismo. Dada la historia en cuanto a Gutiérrez se refiere, quizás hubiese sido mejor que lo dejaran quietecito en su casa.
Univision may have broken the irony meter with this particular booking: Congressman Luis Gutiérrez on Sunday political talker Al Punto, in order to discuss the recent attempted mail bombings and make distinctions between types of nationalism. Given Gutiérrez’ history, perhaps it would’ve been best that he sit this one out.
