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:
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.
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.
Lord knows, the New York Times serves as a reliable media arm of the DNC. But let the newspaper stray from that mission for a millisecond, and the liberal establishment will come down on it like a ton of bricks. On Joy Reid's MSNBC show today, Maria Teresa Kumar of "Voto Latino" was furious at the Times in general, and its Ken Vogel in particular, for reporting the story of how Joe Biden intervened to have fired the prosecutor who was investigating a company that was paying Biden's son Hunter. At one point, Kumar made a telling slip of the tongue, saying, "the Democrats -- excuse me, the American people -- expect [the Times] to be talking to them, and giving them the analysis, and not equivocating [sic, meant "equating"] things because they would like to have access."
Univision’s TV news division gives us a mixed bag with its coverage of the arrest of Democratic donor Ed Buck on charges. On the one hand, there was a full disclosure that you don’t often see in media, but on the other hand, there was some pretty creative tiptoeing around critical elements of the story.
