The “right-wing noise machine” helped make a mess for Republicans by giving “invaluable aid” to Donald Trump, declared Jeet Heer in a Friday piece. Nonetheless, Heer thinks that one positive consequence of Trump’s nomination is that “some in conservative media are…taking stock of how their own bad habits have enabled an unfit demagogue to become their party’s standard-bearer.” Heer proposed a “reform agenda that could fix conservative journalism,” which included his idea that “conservative pundits need to become more intellectually honest and not knee-jerk in dismissing mainstream outlets as inherently biased.”

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.

secó la tinta, y un juez de quiebras aprobó la semana pasada la la compra de Univision de Gawker Media por $135 millones en subasta. ¿Cómo engrana Gawker con la estrategia mediática de Univision, y qué sigue tras esta movida? Veamos.

Este artículo iba a ser redactado inicialmente como un preanálisis de la cobertura que nuestros medios nacionales de habla hispana darían a la noticia de un posible cambio de giro de Donald Trump en el tema migratorio. Por supuesto, eso se fue por la borda tan pronto Jorge Ramos entró ayer a su cuenta de Twitter.

This post was originally going to be written as a "what to expect" sort of pre-analysis to how our domestic Spanish-language news media might react to news of a potential Donald Trump shift on immigration. Of course, that pretty much went out the window once Jorge Ramos logged on to Twitter today.

The dust has settled, the ink has dried, and a bankruptcy judge has approved Univision's purchase of Gawker Media for $135 million at auction. How does Gawker fit into Univision's media strategies, and what follows this blockbuster move? Let's take a look.

Hace poco más de un año, expusimos por primera vez los esfuerzos de Univisión por suprimir intencionalmente cualquier noticia de matiz negativo con respecto a la Fundación Clinton. Hoy vemos que poco ha cambiado desde entonces.

It was barely a year ago when we first uncovered Univision's willfull blacking out of any potentially harmful news surrounding the Clinton Foundation. It appears that very little has changed since then. On Sunday's Al Punto, Jorge Ramos and Congressman Xavier Becerra (D-CA34) had this brief exchange upon concluding their deep analyses of Melania Trump's pre-marital immigration statuses.

Recientemente, detallamos nuestra inquietud respecto a la manera en que el presentador de Univision/Fusion Jorge Ramos pudiese haber cruzado la línea al escribir una columna de endoso implícito a Hillary Clinton. Sin embargo, su columna más reciente elimina toda duda y cruzó la línea final entre el periodismo de agenda y el partidismo político.

True to its consistently anti-Trump motif, Univision has now turned its attention to Melania Trump’s history as an immigrant to the U.S., making the subject the top story on the network’s weekly public affairs program, Al Punto.
