In a textbook case of bias by omission, Univision’s coverage of last night’s LGBTQ forum skipped a key quote from candidate Beto O’Rourke.
In advance of oral arguments before the United States Supreme Court, Univision’s open advocacy of DACA serves to remind us all that the network is little more than an immigration lobby with a broadcast license. Check out the full post to see UNews’s anchor Andrea Linares tees up her interview of a DACA advocate:
Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto finally got around to covering Bernie Sanders’ forced absence from the campaign trail due to illness, with one glaring flaw. Watch below as Al Punto anchor and Univision’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Juan Rivera discuss Sen. Sanders’ heart attack, and unambiguously declare Bernie’s fitness to return to the campaign trail:
Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller is adding weight to an earlier story about CNN offering gifts to government sources. CNN was so aggressive about chasing Trump's alleged collusion with the Russians they were making little baseball bribes. "The FBI’s top press officer during the Hillary Clinton and Trump-Russia investigations accepted tickets to a Washington Nationals game from a CNN correspondent and lied about it repeatedly during interviews with the Justice Department’s inspector general."
The nation’s leading Spanish-language network newscasts offered differing versions of the latest jobs report: one positive, the other negative. One network covers the jobs report fairly and objectively. The other, blinded by its anti-Trump animus, tells only half the story and finds a way to spin the report negatively.
This might sound like a sick joke—if not a Kafkaesque nightmare—but E.J. Dionne is actually complaining the MSM's impeachment coverage has been . . . too fair to President Trump. Appearing on Joy Reid's MSNBC show today [guest-hosted by Jonathan Capehart], Dionne began by approvingly citing WashPost media critic Margaret Sullivan's column, in which she claims that the MSM have not done "nearly enough" in pushing back against Trump surrogates. She demands: "the mainstream media must end its addiction to both-sides journalism." Dionne echoed that, saying: "there are moments in politics when one party has an interest in the truth, and the other party has an interest in falsehood. President Trump lies! It's not partisan for the media to be partisan toward the truth."
In this week’s edition of Real America with Jorge Ramos on Facebook Watch, Univision’s senior anchor elevates illegal immigration with the the nation’s historic civil rights struggles- thus attempting to establish a legal right to illegal immigration.
Univision’s Sunday political affairs show Al Punto has officially joined the media’s hectoring of its viewers on matters of climate change, albeit, this time, on an issue that is of particular sensitivity within the Hispanic community.
Estrella TV is normally known for its over-the-top, virulent coverage of all things pertaining to President Donald Trump. But as Impeachment Fever swaps the nation’s domestic Spanish-language media, Estrella has decided to asset some editorial independence.
Just as they were in their Wednesday morning special reports following the release of the transcript from the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, ABC and NBC were indignant and raging against the “unrepentant,” “untruthful” Trump following a press conference which they deemed to have been an incoherent mess.
Telemundo continues to embarrass itself with its over-the-top climate advocacy, and with its fawning coverage of activist Greta Thunberg’s visit to the United Nations earlier this week. Check out the full poset as anchor José Díaz-Balart takes a full minute to introduce a report on the goings-on at the U.N., and on the streets of Washington, D.C., where activists disrupted traffic.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ recent opinion column, titled “Why I’m Not Quitting Twitter” was written, in part, as an explainer into his continued presence on social media. However, it also provides a fascinating insight as to how he views debate, and gives us a window into his biases.
