The liberal (disguised as non-partisan) voter registration group Rock the Vote received some free airtime on Friday afternoon’s MSNBC Live as host Thomas Roberts welcomed on celebrity backer and vulgar Netflix host Chelsea Handler to promote the group plus her plea for young women to vote so that more abortion-loving judges could end up on the Supreme Court.
Hillary Clinton joined the cast of characters on MSNBC’s Morning Joe late in Friday’s show and co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski questioned her somewhat fairly about the Clinton Foundation and had facial expressions that embodied the lack of trust the American people have in her, but they backed off at some points in hailing her “remarkable” Thursday afternoon speech that could be seen as a “turning point” in the presidential election and politics as a whole.
On Thursday night, Fusion/Univision anchor Jorge Ramos met his match in Fox News Channel’s Kelly File host Megyn Kelly, who proceeded call out Ramos on his claim that journalists shouldn’t be neutral in their coverage of Donald Trump and wondered if he’d do the same for Hillary Clinton since many consider her to be a liar like some Latinos consider Trump a racist.
The panic on the faces of Clinton Foundation defenders grew more palpable on Wednesday night as the questions surrounding donors having meetings with Hillary Clinton’s State Department remained a part of the news cycle, so it was up to liberal journalists like Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews to defend and deflect these concerns as merely “political” ploys by Republicans.
If these "Stuff Jorge Ramos Says" posts seem repetitive, it is because it is unprecedented for a national news anchor to go on the record with his opinions of a presidential candidate (published on multinational platforms), because the establishment media has aided and abetted this break with longstanding tradition, and because it is important to create preserve -consistent with the mission of the MRC - a record of these statements of bias.

With even traditional outlets like the Associated Press and liberal journalists raising concerns about the Clinton Foundation, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews and EMILY’s List president Stephanie Schriock did their best on Tuesday to stave off the damage by making sure viewers knew that the foundation has been “very transparent and ethical” in doing “great work.”
Proving how the Clinton Foundation scandal has become increasingly difficult for the media to ignore, Monday’s The Last Word on MSNBC featured liberal host Lawrence O’Donnell and lefty New York magazine writer Jonathan Chait agreed that the foundation represents “a bigger problem than the Clinton campaign really seems to be aware of” and has been different than the set-up for another famous political family’s charity in the Rockefeller Foundation.
Los televidentes de la edición del viernes de Notciero Univision recibieron un ejemplo preciso de lo que es el sesgo noticioso por omisión, esto debido a que la cadena reportó tan solo un aspecto de la controversia por correos electrónicos entre los ex Secretarios de Estado Hillary Clinton y Colin Powell. A estas alturas, nadie debe de sorprenderse al saber cuál fue la versión que Univision favoreció y puso al aire.
If you ever wondered what Univision's news division looks like when it wants to report on scandals and hold the powerful accountable, you're in luck. Just don't expect any of that reporting to affect Democratic politicians in the United States.
