La cobertura de las presentaciones por vídeo de Hillary Clinton y Donald Trump en la reunión de la Conferencia Nacional de Líderes Hispanos Cristianos (NHCLC) del 2016 en la cadena de televisión en español Número 1 de Estados Unidos fue notable por la ausencia de una explicación de cómo responden los dos aspirantes presidenciales a las prioridades de la organización.

Brian Beutler expects that Donald Trump’s campaign will attempt to “hoodwink first-time voters or people who weren’t paying close attention…into believing known lies” about Hillary Clinton that first surfaced more than two decades ago. As for whether journalists will “debunk” Trump’s “whoppers,” Beutler’s not so sure.

“Unless a critical mass of media figures agrees to treat the things Trump exhumes from the fever swamps of the 1990s with the appropriate contempt, Trump will enjoy the benefit of the doubt most major-party nominees expect,” wrote Beutler in a Friday article. Beutler speculated that as Republicans unify behind Trump, reporters might be less inclined to criticize the presumptive nominee for his outrageous statements and more inclined to present him as a “partisan mirror image” of Clinton.

After nearly a week's worth of controversy, Univision anchor María Elena Salinas has seen fit to address the pushback to portions of her commencement speech at Cal State Fullerton. Unfortunately, Salinas' opinion column leaves much to be desired, and raises new concerns instead of resolving old ones.

The Democrats’ socialist candidate for President of the United States, Bernie Sanders, was seriously tripped up this week in an interview with Univision’s León Krauze. When asked to explain the failure of socialist governments in Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil, Sanders completely clammed up, saying he has an opinion on the subject, but was unwilling to share it, as he is “focused on my campaign.”

As further proof that the nation’s leading Hispanic media are really a subset of the establishment media - as opposed to something independent of it - the Washington Post has decided to once again dedicate prime ink to the showcasing of Univision’s much-ballyhooed voter registration drive.

Como prueba adicional de que los medios principales de la prensa hispana no son sino una burbuja dentro de la burbuja mediática de Washington, el diario The Washington Post se ha dado a la tarea de volverle a dedicar tinta a la promoción de la muy sonada campaña de inscripción electoral de Univisión.

Viewers of ABC, CBS or NBC morning shows and evening news programs could be forgiven for thinking nothing newsworthy is going on in Venezuela, where an emboldened opposition in recent weeks has been working to remove incumbent socialist President Nicolás Maduro through a recall referendum. The country is currently going through a devastating humanitarian crisis, in which food is scarce, medicine and other supplies are dwindling rapidly, and the populace is sliding into chaos. Yet, the traditional big three broadcast networks have yet to air a single word about this ongoing crisis.

Coverage of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s video messages to the 2016 meeting of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) on the nation’s top Spanish-language network was remarkable for totally failing to point out how the two candidates align with the organization’s stated policy priorities.

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.

La inmigración es el lente.

A pair of recent stories on NBC's Spanish-language sister network, Telemundo, prove that bias is everywhere and not always limited to the body of a report. As was reported on several major media outlets, the United States Supreme Court has decided it is appropriate to bar a deported foreign national from re-entry into the United States due to a prior conviction of attempted arson.

Casi un año después de que Donald Trump anunció el lanzamiento de su campaña presidencial,  Jorge Ramos finalmente decidió hacerle una entrevista a un partidario del hombre que lidera la contienda interna por la nominación desde el verano de 2015 y que ahora ha surgido como el virtual candidato republicano a la Casa Blanca.
