No, it's not surprising that Spanish language TV giants Telemundo and Univision tilt left in their news coverage. What's pretty shocking is how overwhelming the bias is.
The bottom line: By a margin of six to one, the Spanish-speaking Hispanic TV leans liberal in stories, particularly in reports about U.S. domestic policy, according to the first report from the new MRC Latino, an arm of the conservative Media Research Center.
The Center, which has called out liberal bias in network TV for years, prompting some to even out their political bias, hopes that their new group will do the same for Latino TV. What their report found was the type of bias seen most on cable TV.
Among the results:
-- Univision leans left the most, with 50 percent of their stories tilting liberal.
-- The Hispanic giants quoted Democrats three to one over Democrats, with President Obama and his team leading the way.
-- Pro-Obamacare sources were quoted in stories about the troubled health insurance system by a margin of five to one over critics.
-- In a review of 103 immigration reform stories, 66 tilted left, only nine leaned conservative, and the rest were down the middle.
I don't think there's much doubt that Hispanics come from political cultures that feature activist governments. But that doesn't necessarily make a majority of them Democrats, and certainly not socialists.

How to change that is the subject of a good debate, but whatever you believe can be done, it will take several election cycles to accomplish.
You change it by selecting immigrants on the basis of their contribution to US society and industry. Those who contribute little, stay in their third world socialist hell-hole. Super-producers and over-achievers can come and participate in the American Dream.

Even the Cubans are not nearly as conservative as they were even just 10 years ago.

Hell, at 6-1, that’s actually more conservative than the ‘English speaking’ media in the US.
For the last 40 years, both Democrat and Republican wings of The Party of Government have done all they can to replace American voters with Mexicans.
Now, why is that?

(This is not a statement of fact. It is either opinion or satire; or both.)
That’s pretty shocking. They’d have to be 9:1 to match the bias of the English-speaking journos.

That is not important LOL. What is it about the Weather Girls you guys always bring them up when it comes to Mexican News? Nevermind LOL
If we encouraged 20 million Chinese to move here illegally ON THE CONDITION they vote Republican do you think the New York Times would ‘figure out’ that we were buying voters with citizenship?
You're damn right the New York Times and Washington Post would ‘get it’... And when they did, could be call the litte sh*ts xenophobes?
