Viewers of Friday's Noticiero Univision were treated to a prime example of bias by omission when the network reported only one side of the ongoing email controversy between former Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and Colin Powell. By now no one should be surprised as to which side of the story was the one that actually got Univision air.
Censoring the News
News that is censored by media outlets because it doesn't fit their agenda.
It has been nearly a week since the State Department released its 2015 Annual Report on International Religious Freedom (IRF). To date, the broadcast networks have not even acknowledged the report or its findings; and major newspapers have offered perfunctory coverage.
The same day the MRC published a letter signed by more than thirty conservative leaders calling out the broadcast networks for failing to report on the extent of Christian genocide in Muslim-majority nations, ABC, CBS and NBC missed an opportunity to report on that very subject.
If a Republican Congressman had gotten into a physical altercation with a reporter at the GOP convention it’s a good bet it would have been plastered all over the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network and cable newscasts. But so far no one at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC or FNC has reported on Alan Grayson’s Tuesday scuffle, in Philadelphia, with a reporter that asked the Florida Democratic Congressman about domestic violence allegations made by his ex-wife.
Former Univision News analyst and Univision America radio host Helen Aguirre-Ferre appeared on Sunday's Al Punto, in what was her return to the program since joining the RNC as Director for Hispanic Media. Her interview with host Jorge Ramos went pretty much as expected.
Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos has seen fit to grace us with his latest hot take. In the process, he finds a way to tie that into the politics surrounding the current presidential election, blaming a very familiar culprit.
House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans have released a comprehensive plan to tackle poverty in America, but so far Univision and Telemundo have studiously ignored covering the proposal. The country’s top two Spanish-language television networks have failed to devote any coverage to the House Republican majority’s initiative, which aims to encourage work, improve education and tailor welfare to the needs of individuals.
Sometimes, you can just look at a story as it unspools and know, instinctively, that the corrupt establishment media is going to find a way to embarrass itself. Univision is no different, the latest proof of that coming via the network's brazen material misrepresentation of its former relationship with the RNC's new Director of Hispanic Media, Helen Aguirre-Ferré.
The Azteca America network continues to try to outdo its competition in the U.S. Spanish-language media segment, in terms of the most insanely biased coverage of the immigration agenda. Here's your latest installment, a confirmation of something I learned in art class many years ago- that empty spaces can also tell a story.
The Clinton Foundation has been labeled a “charity fraud” by the same Wall Street analyst that
was an “early whistleblower on financial irregularities at companies such as General Electric and AIG.” On Thursday, The Washington Free Beacon reported that Charles Ortel “spent the past 15 months digging into the Clinton Foundation’s public records, federal and state-level tax filings, and donor disclosures” and determined “this is a charity fraud.” So far, none of the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks have reported on this latest development in the scandals swirling around The Clinton Foundation.
Earlier this week, United Healthcare made major news by announcing its intent to pull out of Obamacare. The story mostly went missing from all but one domestic Spanish-language network
On Monday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of United States v. Texas - the case in which a coalition of 26 states, led by Texas, sued the Obama administration over the executive DACA/DAPA programs. On the leading domestic Spanish-language television network newscasts, the case was given existential treatment. Unfortunately, the coverage was just as one-sided as we would have expected.
