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.
President Obama constantly told falsehoods to the American people about how his policies worked, how they would be implemented, and what the benefits were. His most famous one, “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it” got him the Lie of the Year. But when President Trump does his own spinning, it all of a sudden becomes a moral conundrum for the liberal media. The stacked anti-Trump panel on NBC’s Meet the Press proved this point on Sunday when they debated when to call him a liar.
Queda claro que muchos en Univision aún tratan de procesar lo que ocurrió el mes pasado. Esto fue muy evidente en la más reciente edición de Al Punto, donde tanto al anfitrión como al invitado se les hizo difícil entender el desenlace de las pasadas elecciones.
It is clear that many at Univision are still trying to process what happened last month. This much was evident on the most recent edition of the network's weekly public affairs program, Al Punto, as both host and guest struggled to understand the outcome of the election.
Editor's Note: What follows is a statement released this afternoon by Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell, regarding revelations that the American Conservative Union (ACU) invited militant atheist group American Atheists to host a booth in the exhibit hall of the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)
The invitation extended by the ACU, Al Cardenas and CPAC to American Atheists to have a booth is more than an attack on conservative principles. It is an attack on God Himself. American Atheists is an organization devoted to the hatred of God. How on earth could CPAC, or the ACU and its board of directors, and Al Cardenas condone such an atrocity? [statement continues after page break]
CNN's Carol Costello spent her entire interview with the CPAC chairman badgering him about the inclusion of gay Republicans in the conference. A few minutes before, Costello had led off the 9 a.m. hour of Newsroom touting GOP Senator Rob Portman (Ohio) and his newfound support for gay marriage.
"Will CPAC ever change its position and allow gay Republicans to sit at the table?" she pressed the chair of the American Conservative Union, Al Cardenas. "Were there gay people included in those panel discussions?" she followed up.
On Sunday's NBC Meet the Press, American Conservative Union president Al Cardenas squared off against a group of left-wing pundits on the subject of President Obama announcing his support for gay marriage. The liberal bloc of guests included MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews, California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, and Washington Post columnists Jonathan Capehart and Kathleen Parker.

Parker cheered Obama's use of the word "evolving" to describe his flip-flop on gay marriage: "I think that's the perfect word to describe this conversation because the American people are evolving on this issue. And increasingly they're coming on the side of same-sex marriage being the right side of history..."
