Joe Biden’s rise from the ash heap to Democratic frontrunner, while remarkable unto itself, is also remarkable for the manner in which it exposed the nation’s domestic Spanish-language media’s agenda-driven journalism. The networks built a narrative which centered around making Bernie Sanders a “Latino” candidate with which to flex power and influence.
MSNBC juggled two priorities during its Super Tuesday 2 coverage with the first being continuing to boost and rehabilitate the image of Joe Biden as he stands to be the 2020 Democratic nominee. But the other and, for the focus of purposes here, was continuing to paint the Trump administration’s response to coronavirus as disastrous and rendering Trump the 21st century incarnation of Jimmy Carter and an “underground railroad” for real information about the virus.
As COVID-19 continues to spread, so do the insidious comments by the likes of CNN En Español anchor Juan Carlos Lopez, who turned a report on the correct preventive measures to take against the virus into an opportunity to call U.S. Rep Matt Gaetz a clown for wearing a gas mask to work.
Univision’s coverage of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s dangerous tirade against TWO sitting Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States showcases simultaneous biases by omission and by commission- and abortion is the point of intersection.
The latest edition of Univision’s Sunday political affairs show, Al Punto, featured a segment wherein the network’s chief apologist for “democratic socialism” asked his first question regarding Sen. Bernie Sanders’ controversial support for the Castro dictatorship’s “Literacy Brigades”.

Was Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s inability to identify Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador a limited Latino-interest issue or a moment that warranted broader coverage as a campaign-defining “deer-in-the-headlights” gaffe? The liberal media, hamstrung by soft bigotry and blinded by double standards.
Univision anchor and hot-take machine Enrique Acevedo is facing self-inflicted backlash over his dismissal of Florida Hispanics’ refusal to embrace Bernie Sanders as a result of being “manipulated.” It all started when The View contributor and CNN analyst Ana Navarro weighed in on the potential damage that a Sanders candidacy would inflict on the remainder of the Florida ballot, which is to say that she is not at all down with the Sandernista Revolution. Acevedo then decided to jump in with an unfortunate quote-tweet of his own:
When compared with a recent opinion column, Univision’s coverage of the impeachment finale featured a revelation that all but confirms Jorge Ramos to be a partisan actor masquerading as an advocacy journalist.
Univision may have finally figured out a way around the inconvenient fact that Bill Clinton was the first sitting president to deliver a State of the Union Address while in an impeachment trial: By saying, “well, at least he apologized.”
