CNN’s most obnoxious White House correspondent is about to get rewarded again from his peers for his unprofessional behavior. According to a press release on April 12, the New York Press Club will give Jim Acosta their “Truth to Power” journalism award.
The Pulitzer Prizes are just another way the anti-Trump media congratulate themselves as doing the Lord’s work (if only they believed in Him). Just look at the list of judges, most from top brands: the Associated Press, Bloomberg News, NPR, The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, ProPublica, and of course, the Columbia Journalism School, which runs the whole racket. All are squarely on the left.
A recent episode of Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos’ “Real America”, now shown on Facebook Watch, builds upon a series of historical inaccuracies and sophistries in order to aid and abet the ongoing effort to soft-sell democratic socialism.
Univision’s foray into digital media comes to an expected and, with the announced sale of its digital media portfolio. As the Spanish-language media giant limps back to its core business, it’s worth looking at what led to this point, and what follows from here.
As the issue of Puerto Rico funding was in the national news again, the liberal media turned to their favorite anti-Trump personality on the island, Bernie Sanders presidential campaign co-chair and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, as opposed to Governor Ricardo Rosselló (D) or the territory’s sole non-voting representative in Congress, Jenniffer González (R).
Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló (D) achieved a lot of free press on the Mainland, with help and direction from CNN’s Jim Acosta. But Telemundo needlessly took the governor’s remarks a step further. In the clip below, Telemundo senior anchor José Díaz-Balart hypes Rosselló’s inflammatory remarks by misrepresenting them:
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos kicked off the most recent edition of his Sunday political affairs show Al Punto by turning his attention to what really matters, and asking the most pressing question of the day: what do the Democrats want now?
As news of the Mueller report’s arrival broke late Friday afternoon, newscasts scrambled to adequately cover a story that is sure to shake up the nation’s political landscape. Our major domestic Spanish-language newscasts were no different, but there was a clear tonal difference in how news of the Mueller report was covered.
Once former San Antonio Mayor and secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro announced his presidential aspirations for 2020, it was only a matter of time before an inevitable syrupy sit-down with Univision’s Jorge Ramos. That time has come, with an interview on Facebook Watch.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ most recent column is a recent rehash of recurring tropes, but also features a strange apologia for radical liberal Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as well as the distinct odor of censorship.
Latino news networks in the United States exist for one sole reason: to inform Hispanics who prefer watching relevant content in Spanish. As such, it would seem only natural for major economic news directly affecting that viewership to occupy headlines on the nation’s top Spanish-language media outlets. Yet, as MRC Latino has repeatedly noted, the subject is consistently either ignored or under-reported, with the latest example being the new record low of 4.3% for Hispanic unemployment in February 2019.
Washington Post "fact checker" (and former State Department reporter) Glenn Kessler tweeted it was "an embarrassment and an outrage." The Trump administration rescinded a "Woman of Courage" award at the State Department for Finnish journalist Jessikka Aro, and two reporters at Foreign Policy magazine found the usual Anonymous Source claiming it was because someone on Team Trump read her Twitter feed and had second thoughts.
