Few things are more upsetting than watching the media, including the nation´s Spanish-language newscasts, turn a tragedy into a political issue. The massacre that took place at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, provided all of the liberal media with the perfect scenario to do so non-stop.
Univision aired its special, titled “Hispanics in the Crosshairs”, in the immediate aftermath of the horrendous shooting at El Paso, Texas. Unfortunately, the network squandered valuable time and goodwill by lending its platform to one of the most incendiary voices in any community, let alone the Hispanic community.
Along with panelists on Monday morning’s CNN Newsroom ripping President Trump’s speech and displaying a visceral hatred for non-liberals, these CNN personalities bolstered their takes on this weekend’s mass shootings by showcasing a nearly 14-minute-long beatdown of political commentator David Urban, who was the lone conservative panelist.
While he’s received some praise during his congressional career, the liberal media’s use of sudden respect boiled with Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) announcing that he won’t seek reelection. And, as with many cases of when GOPers either retire or pass away, the liberal media used the occasion to lament how their hated opposition just isn’t as respectable as it used to be. Throughout the day on Friday, CNN put that truism on display.
Never wasting a chance to grant prime-time exposure to their leftist darlings – in this case socialist politicians from Puerto Rico– three of the nation ́s Spanish-language news networks each featured one of these leftist role models during their coverage of the government crisis in Puerto Rico. The 11-day chaos in the U.S. territory ended on July 24th, with the resignation of Democrat governor Ricardo Rosselló.
Reminder: Trump Derangement Syndrome is very real and a terrible affliction that rots the patient’s brain. A particularly advanced case was on full display during Cuomo Prime Time following President Trump’s address on border security. According to two afflicted patients, the Trump administration approached the media on Monday to request airtime on Tuesday in order to distract from news about Paul Manafort that... hadn’t even happened yet? Okay then.
El congresista de Chicago Luis Gutiérrez ha sido un invitado frecuente en los noticieros hispanos durante tres décadas, pero esa era está a punto de llegar a su fin con el retiro inminente del congresista Gutiérrez. Mientras los noticieros hispanos buscan su próximo bombardero retórico congresional, aquí en MRC Latino le queremos dar a Gutiérrez un despido propio, y desearle un feliz hasta nunca.
Chicagoland Congressman Luis Gutiérrez has been a regular staple of Spanish-language TV news shows for three decades, but that era is about to come to a close as his retirement approaches. As the Spanish-language newscasts scramble to find their next congressional bombthrower, we at MRC Latino want to give Gutiérrez a proper send-off.
Univision news anchor Jorge Ramos proves, once again, that racialism for its own sake is critical to his worldview, as past statements belie his most recent call for more Hispanic representation in the United States Congress. The call is there, but is it real? What does Ramos really mean?
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.
El congresista saliente Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) compareció en la edición más reciente del semanario político Al Punto, de la cadena Univisión, para hablar de temas de inmigración y de la respuesta del gobierno del presidente Donald Trump ante el embate del huracán María sobre Puerto Rico. Pero en el transcurso de anotarse un punto contra el gobierno de Trump, resulta que Gutiérrez difamó a las Fuerzas Armadas de los Estados Unidos.
