    Oh irony of ironies. How beautiful you can be! Less than a week after Univision smeared the Trump tax cuts, the owner of that broadcasting network, Haim Saban, has announced that he will be giving $1000 bonuses to his employees due to those same tax cuts. In fact, as we shall see, Saban very specifically credited those same tax cuts as the reason for the bonuses. To get a full appreciation of the irony involved let us first look at what a Univision anchor said about the Trump tax cuts as reported by the MRC Latino Staff on January 27...
  • Democrats just got rolled. They can blame Barack Obama.

    The government shutdown is over. Democrats finally realized that closing the government over illegal immigration was a losing political battle. They created a needless crisis and got rolled. So who is to blame for their current predicament? Along with Charles Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Democrats can put the blame squarely on the man who could have legalized the “dreamers” when he had the chance: Barack Obama. During his 2008 campaign, Obama promised in a conversation with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos to make passing immigration reform one of his first legislative priorities, and even set a timetable. “I cannot guarantee that...
  • Univision Anchor: I’m Having The ‘Worst Time’ of My Life In The U.S. Thanks To Trump

    Univision’s Jorge Ramos is supposedly having a bad time living in America thanks to Donald J. Trump’s 2016 win over Hillary Clinton. Earlier in December, he made this known during an interview with Javier del Pino on Cadena SER’s A Vivir, a Spanish radio program. The statement took del Pino aback.Ramos later reiterated the time he was ejected from a Donald Trump press conference in Iowa, and how Trump’s supposedly terrible remarks about Mexicans during his presidential announcement all contributed to Ramos becoming “an opponent” to the Trump agenda. It runs in the family too, as Ramos' daughter worked for...

    Univision anchor Jorge Ramos says he’s experiencing “the worst moment I’ve had in the 34 years I’ve been living in the United States.” “With Donald Trump there, I have never been treated so badly. I have never been insulted so much. We’ve never been attacked so much. They have never tried to run us out as much as now,” Ramos vented in an interview with the Spanish radio network Cadena SER. Ramos, who proclaimed himself “if not an enemy, an opponent” of Trump in the interview, complained about the massive blowback he has received since deciding to use his media...

    Nearly a year into the Trump presidency, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos says he’s experiencing “the worst moment I’ve had in the 34 years I’ve been living in the United States.” “With Donald Trump there, I have never been treated so badly. I have never been insulted so much. We’ve never been attacked so much, nor have they tried to run us out as much as now,” Ramos vented in an interview with the Spanish radio network Cadena SER.

  • Former Univision Host Accused of Raping 7-Year-Old Girl

    Victor Hugo Alvarez-Real, 35, was charged in Arkansas on May 15 for allegedly raping a 7-year-old girl multiple times in 2016, 5NEWS reported. Police issued an arrest warrant for Alvarez-Real on May 25 and have so far been unable to locate him. A relative of the victim, Barbara Gutierrez, said this entire ordeal had been the most difficult thing she has ever experienced because of the pain and suffering of the little girl. “Because I have to absorb…I have to absorb what she’s going through and take it in myself,” Gutierrez said. “It’s been the most difficult challenge I’ve ever...

    Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope. Dear Lord, please!) In a week where we’re getting a new Supreme Court justice, the alt-left has been supremely insane. They have moved into a complete panic about the world, blaming the end to their filibuster on divisive Republicans. Somehow they seem to forget a bit of the Supreme injustice they’ve inflicted on various right-leaning nominees. Does the term “Borking” remind you of something? Then, in the aftermath of President Trump’s reaction to Syria, they seemed perplexed. Salon ran with the ultimate, alt-lefty spin: “DID PUTIN GIVE PERMISSION?” Liberals...

    Immigration grievance is going to be a large component of Univision's news programming going forward, as we see on the edition of Al Punto that aired last January 29th. Host Jorge Ramos and Trump Hispanic Advisory Panel member José Fuentes Agostini, who is also the former Attorney General of Puerto Rico, went back and forth over Trump, the promised wall, and immigration policy overall. Here are two key exchanges that pretty much sum up the entire segment. In the first segment, Ramos rails against the futility of the wall itself, deeming it to be 'useless'. Fuentes countered by noting that...

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 23, 2017 | Pete Kasperowicz
    President Trump's White House sent a clear message to major media outlets on Monday: You don't matter as much anymore. The White House for years has deferred to newswires and major TV networks, all of whom are represented in the first row of the White House briefing room, for the first several questions at the daily briefing. But on Monday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer called on very different group of reporters. He first called on the New York Post. Then, the Christian Broadcasting Network. That was followed by Univision and Fox Business. Spicer then took a question from...

    The question hangs heavy over our domestic Spanish-language news media: "Why did Hispanics vote for Donald Trump?" As the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States continues to approach, our two leading networks took widely divergent approaches to this question. Univision has chosen to treat the question as if it were an unsolvable enigma- not unlike a 17-sided Rubik's Cube delivered straight from the bowels of hell. Anchors and hosts alike have been utterly confounded as to the reasons why a vast number of Latinos would reject the network's messaging (not to mention the network itself). Anchor Jorge Ramos simply wrote...

    The month of November has been a bit bumpy for Univision Communications. First Donald Trump wins the presidency and now the Spanish-language media conglomerate is slated for mass layoffs. Univision will be dismissing six percent of its workforce and restructuring following a third-quarter net loss of $30.5 million, the company announced Wednesday and The Washington Post first reported. The layoffs are expected to result in some 200-250 job-losses. ...more...

The layoffs, along with a planned restructuring, “are in response to difficult times, challenging times,” Isaac Lee, Univision’s digital, entertainment and news chief, told The Washington Post in his first public comments on the moves. “We need to position ourselves for the future.”

    By Brian Stelter November 08, 2016 17:52PM EST Univision executives like to say that the road to the White House runs through the Hispanic community. "This argument will be tested today," Univision's top anchorman Jorge Ramos said Tuesday. Donald Trump defied the argument, declining Ramos's repeated entreaties for an interview, despite the fact that Univision (UVN) is the dominant TV network among Spanish speakers in the United States.(snip) "The only other candidate that didn't want to talk to us was Bob Dole in 1996, and lost," Ramos told CNNMoney. "Regardless of the results, I think Trump will be the last...

    On August 22, a convoy of blacked-out Suburbans, flanked by police escorts, sped west along Sunset Boulevard and then headed north into the Hollywood Hills. The motorcade finally pulled up to the gated entrance of Beverly Park, an exclusive enclave that is home to an array of famous actors, rockers, and other Los Angeles A-listers.

    Univision chief executive Randy Falco has written to the Commission on Presidential Debates, expressing “disappointment, and frankly disbelief” at the decision not to include a Spanish-language moderator for the upcoming series of presidential debates. “Simply put: it’s an abdication of your responsibility to represent and reflect one of the largest and most influential communities in the U.S,” Falco writes in the letter, addressed to commission executive director Janet Brown. Friday morning, the commission announced its choices for the three presidential and one vice presidential debates. The presidential debate moderators are all from English-language television: Lester Holt of NBC News, Martha...

    A prominent Mexican TV news anchor is blasting Mexican President Enrique Peńa Nieto for inviting Donald Trump to Mexico City. Jorge Ramos, anchor for Univision and Fusion, criticized Peńa Nieto for not holding Trump accountable for some of his previous rhetoric on illegal immigration and Mexican-Americans. Instead, during a joint press conference in Mexico Wednesday, Peńa affirmed that the two men would work together to end illegal immigration if Trump is elected president. "What a poor, lukewarm and fearful response by [Nieto] before Trump," Ramos tweeted in Spanish Wednesday. Where is the indignation to Trump's insults?" "Trump leaves Mexico without...

    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. To my knowledge,the Univision/Fusion star is the only national network anchor with a binational weekly column, running first in Mexico city's Reforma before publication across Univision's platforms. To be clear, Ramos has been anti-Trump from the outset of his candidacy, but any reasonable analyst could have attributed that to nothing more than a business-interest bias towards immigration policy. Recall that it was MRC Latino that broke news of his speech at Harvard,...
