Jorge Ramos' latest column clarifies and brightens a formerly blurry line between journalism and advocacy; between neutrality and partisanship, tacitly endorsing Hillary Clinton for President in the process.
Earlier, we showed how Univision/Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos gave an immigration lecture to the father of a young man murdered by an illegal immigrant gang member. Sadly, it wasn't just Ramos, and Univision News went further.
Seldom will you see such a clear case of advocacy journalism as this: Jorge Ramos pitching comprehensive immigration reform to the father of a young California man murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2008, just three doors down from his home. But this is exactly what Fusion viewers saw last night as part of the Univision affiliate's coverage of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
Pocas veces verán un ejemplo tan claro y contundente de periodismo de agenda como esto: Jorge Ramos vendiéndole reforma migratoria integral al padre de un joven de California asesinado por un indocumentado en el 2008, a tan sólo tres puertas de su casa. Sin embargo, ésto es precisamente lo que presenciaron los televidentes de Fusion el lunes en la noche como parte de su cobertura de la Convención Nacional Republicana en Cleveland.
Presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton hasn't even chosen a running mate, nor is the process open to a vote. That hasn't stopped Univision from clearly voicing its choice for Vice President: Julián Castro, former mayor of San Antonio and current Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
La presunta nominada demócrata Hillary Clinton aún no elige a su compañero de papeleta, ni está el proceso abierto a votación. No obstante, ello no impide que Univisión manifieste su preferencia por el exalcalde de San Antonio, Texas y actual Secretario de Vivienda: Julián Castro.
In a recent article written for Fusion titled “I was an ‘accident’ – but I’m still pro-choice”, the writer, Caitlin Murphy, highlights the struggles and hardships endured by her mother after giving birth to her. She also goes into detail about how maybe her mother’s life would have been better if she had just opted for an abortion. Yes, rather than celebrate a single mother’s courage to continue on with the gift of life, she displays the most peculiar case of survivor’s remorse you can possibly imagine.
When Univision announced its acquisition of the satirical fake-news purveyor the Onion as part of its digital shopping spree back in January, we expressed these concerns, which were confirmed by one particularly awful piece that ran last week.
El presentador de Univisión Jorge Ramos se ha dignado en brindarnos su opinión más reciente. En el transcurso de hacerlo, busca la manera de entrelazarla con la política presidencial actual, y señala al responsable de siempre.
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.
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.
