    As we all remember, the media completely freaked out after the Supreme Court decided Citizens United in favor of free speech. Taking aim primarily at the right-leaning Koch Brothers, the media posed as defenders of democracy against the corrupting influence of outside money in politics. As usual, the facts prove that the media are big fat liars. Although legions of left-wing corporations like NBC News, Politico, MSNBC, CNN, CBS News, ABC News, The Washington Post, LA Times, NPR, PBS, Univision, Comedy Central, MTV, HBO, and ESPN spend billions of dollars pushing a political agenda 24/7, the left-wing media want a...

    On Fox News Channel’s “MediaBuzz,” Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank attacked Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as a “rotten pig,” a “fraud,” and a “Sarah Palin phenomenon.” “I love writing about him. Yeah, the man is a rotten pig but good for our business, and yes, it is a guilty pleasure,” Milbank said. He added, “This is a perfectly legitimate story for media to be covering. It’s justified by the polls and what is this man doing but holding up a mirror to our political system? He knows how to work the media. He knows how to work the Republican...

    Think what you want about open border activist and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos (as you’ll see below, I don’t think much of him), but the man has talent. Ramos is very bright, charismatic and a skillful activist. He’s a also a skillful liar and propagandist; a man who pretends to care deeply about his fellow Mexicans, when the truth is that in exchange for fame, wealth and political power, Ramos abandoned over 120 million of them. According to his own biography, the 57 year-old Ramos came to America in 1983, when he was 25 years old. He didn’t come here...

Good, he’s hit a nerve. At his campaign kickoff announcement at Trump Towers, Trump said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you (gesturing to audience member), they’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”...

    Panama announced Saturday it is boycotting the Miss Universe pageant — the latest Latin American nation to drop out in protest to Donald Trump's incendiary remarks about Mexican migrants. The Miss Panama Organization and the Telemetro TV station said they wouldn't be a part of the Miss Universe contest, or broadcast it, "in a message of solidarity for our Mexican brothers and sisters." The contest is partially owned by Trump. Trump, a 2016 presidential candidate, has faced searing criticism and lost numerous business deals since his comments about Mexicans during his campaign announcement earlier this month.

"This isn't good for my brand, I think it's bad for my brand," Trump said. "Maybe I'm leading in polls, but this is certainly not good. I lose customers, I lose people." Still, Trump maintained that his businesses are "very strong," and haven't been too hurt by the bad publicity yet.

    The horrific murder of a pretty young woman by an illegal alien at a prime tourist location in San Francisco is validating the argument of Donald Trump on the influx of violent criminals, and causing at least some local media reflection in arguably the nation’s most politically correct city. This morning edition of the San Francisco Chronicle website (which reflects the newspaper’s front page to some extent) gives prominent placement to Trump’s contention that the murder of Kathryn Steinle shows that he’s right. And the digital-only SFGate site gives him even more prominent play, using an unflattering picture. update:...

The interview turned out to be a great opportunity to inform the Hispanic community about the U.S. Constitution and conservative values.

    Donald Trump brought his in-your-face presidential campaign to Chicago audience on Monday, declaring that if is he is elected, he would make America “rich,” stop illegal immigration and “knock out” federal health-care reform that the U.S. Supreme Court last week ruled the law of the land. And even as NBC became the latest network to sever its ties to Trump after he characterized Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals, Trump insisted he had nothing to apologize for, saying his remarks were “100 percent correct.”(continued)

    Donald Trump’s not worried about hearing ‘you’re fired’ — and he’s not about to backtrack on his beliefs. Right after NBC cut all ties with him, the presidential candidate was already in a press conference, and revealed that even though NBC doesn’t agree, he still stands by the controversial remarks on Mexican immigrants. Following being dropped by NBC on June 29, Donald Trump, 69, revealed that he was not going to backtrack and that NBC was actually just mad that he was running for president. The network announced that they were ending their entire business relationship with Donald Trump, dropping...

    NBCUniversal, under pressure from an array of Hispanic groups, is severing its business ties to presidential candidate Donald Trump. The Miss USA pageant, scheduled for July 12, will no longer air on the network. Nor will the Miss Universe pageant, scheduled for next January. Both pageants were, until now, jointly owned by NBC and Trump. "At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values," the company said in a statement on Monday. "Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump." Speaking to reporters after...

    The scene comes to mind with the news that Univision has abruptly told Donald Trump that they will no longer carry the Trump-owned Miss Universe pageant. Why? It seems that the network is displeased that in his announcement speech. And while all this was going on? Univision anchorman Jorge Ramos sent a handwritten note to Trump asking - yes - for an interview. Or in other words? We’re going to break your contract and call you a racist but would you like to sit down for a chat? So. As a result of Univision’s decidedly unthought-through stab at partisan politics...

    Donald Trump published a photograph of a handwritten letter from Univision's Jorge Ramos on Friday that included the anchor's personal cellphone number, a move that is likely to inflame the recent tensions between the two parties. In the letter, sent Thursday, Ramos asks if Trump will sit with him for an interview. Ramos then provides his cellphone number, in the event that Trump "would like to talk first over the phone." Trump published the photo to his personal Instagram account on Friday, noting that Univision was "begging" him for interviews even after publicly severing business ties with him.

    Oh please, Br'er Fox, don't throw me into the briar-patch.” So goes the line from the old American and long ago Disney-ized folk tale Song of the South by Joel Chandler Harris. The rabbit pleads with the fox not to throw him into the briar patch. The fox does just what he is asked not to do - and thus tossed into the thicket where rabbits thrive, the rabbit escapes. Laughing all the way. The scene comes to mind with the news that Univision has abruptly told Donald Trump that they will no longer carry the Trump-owned Miss Universe pageant....

    Donald Trump sent a letter to Univision CEO and president Randy Falco on Friday informing him that "no Univision officer or representative" is allowed to use his Trump National Doral, the resort and golf club immediately adjacent to Univision offices in Miami, the On Media blog has learned.

    Looks like the presidential candidate is getting ready to rumble in court with the Spanish-language broadcaster over axing Miss USA. “We’ll be bringing a major lawsuit against Univision for defamation, and also they owe us a lot of money,” Donald Trump said bluntly to Deadline today after Univision said it wouldn’t be air the Miss USA Pageant next month. “They have a contract that is ironclad, no termination rights,” Trump added of the deal that was made between Univision and the Miss Universe Organization, which he partially owns

    Univision has ended its partnership with the Miss Universe Organization after Donald Trump, the organization’s part owner, made what Univision has deemed to be incendiary remarks against Mexican immigrants when he announced his campaign for presidency earlier this month. “Today, the entertainment division of Univision Communications Inc. announced that it is ending the Company’s business relationship with the Miss Universe Organization, which is part-owned by Donald J. Trump, based on his recent, insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants,” the company said. “At Univision, we see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants...
