Telemundo and Univision combined to spend almost five minutes reporting on the findings of a new Pew Center study regarding the growth of the Hispanic population in the United States. Appropriate coverage, one might say, for the nation’s leading news purveyors to the aforementioned segment of the population that, according to both reports, hit the 60 million mark.
Viewers of Univision ́s weekly evening news edition, Noticiero Univisión, were treated to an unusual sight: Anchor Ilia Calderón actually reporting on a recent Washington Post/ABC poll that found that President Trump's approval rating rose by fivepoints to an all-time high of 44 percent, albeit it took her a scant 29 seconds to cover all the good news for Trump (Telemundo News skipped it altogether).
Carmen Yulín Cruz, the radical separatist Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, made yet another appearance on Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto. Watch as Cruz, national co-chair for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, minimizes host Jorge Ramos’ recent arbitrary detention in Venezuela while attempting to dance around her failure to condemn the brutal dictatorships in Cuba and Venezuela.
The nation’s most prominent Spanish-language evening news anchor is, arguably, also its most prominent advocate for open borders; and he isn’t shy about using his many platforms and bylines in furtherance of that goal.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos continues to shill for gun control. This time, he does so on his Facebook Watch platform.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos shields Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) from her remarks comparing immigrant detention centers to Nazi concentration camps, in what is his most recent and most blatant instance of AOC fandom. If you thought that last week’s effusive praise of AOC’s appearance on ABC’s This Week was the apex of media cheerleading then you, dear reader, thought wrong.
Veteran Univision anchor Jorge Ramos continues to gush over U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in direct conflict with the persona he has purportedly built over the past few years (the Trump years, if you will) of being a proponent and defender of the kind of journalism that must, in order to be pure, remain in direct opposition to power.
The nation’s liberal media – including Univision – went ballistic in its coverage of President Trump’s 2020 re-campaign launch rally in Orlando, Florida. And to stress just how “upset” Latinos were about his announcement, Univision correspondent Claudia Uceda informed her audience that “only hours after Donald Trump promised deportations, workers who had revealed that they worked for the President with false documents wanted to ruin the celebration.”
Just like its star, the showboating anti-Trumper Jorge Ramos, Univision cannot simply act like a “news” network. It’s a left-wing lobbying operation badly disguised as a “news” outlet. It’s one thing to slant the news. It’s another to enter the policy arena and fight for the left-wing agenda – in the courts, no less.
The battle to prevent a question on U.S. citizenship status in the upcoming 2020 Census has driven Univision beyond its usual brand of activism. Now, the network has evolved into being an active participant in the legal proceedings surrounding the question.
Outstanding economic news continues for the nation's largest ethnic minority – Hispanic Americans - with the unemployment rate for this segment of the population remaining at a record-low of 4.2% in May. Yet for the Spanish-language sister network of NBC, Telemundo, this historically low rate was not even worth mentioning on its national evening news.
