Jorge Ramos: The Job of Journalists Is to ‘Denounce’ Trump’s Positions

Fresh from his confrontation with Donald Trump on Tuesday night, activist reporter Jorge Ramos appeared on ABC and CBS to pitch the idea that it’s the job of journalists to openly oppose the candidate’s positions. On Good Morning America, Wednesday, he asked colleague George Stephanopoulos: "We have to denounce that he wants to deny citizenship to children being born here." He added, "They’re citizens, just like [Trump's children], and it is impossible to build a 1900-mile wall… So that’s the kind of questions that I was asking Mr. Trump."

NBC: Jorge Ramos ‘The Walter Cronkite of Latino America’

At the top of Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer described how Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was “kicked out of a Donald Trump news conference” on Tuesday and wondered: “Can Trump’s confrontational style carry him all the way to the White House or will it wear thin with voters?” Peter Alexander proclaimed: “To be clear, Jorge Ramos is the most powerful newsman in Spanish-language TV. He’s often called the Walter Cronkite of Latino America.”

CNN’s Cuomo Presses Ramos on Shouting Down ‘Dangerous’ Trump

On Wednesday’s New Day, CNN’s Chris Cuomo refreshingly pressed Univision’s Jorge Ramos over his Tuesday face-off with Donald Trump. Cuomo noted that Trump’s "point is, it wasn’t a question – it was a comment. You wanted to get into a fight with him." Ramos played up that "this is very important for the Hispanic community; and this is personal…we’re talking about…destroying the lives of millions of people." The CNN anchor later spotlighted how Ramos insulted Trump as "the face of hate and division," and pointed out that Ramos’s daughter "works for Hillary Clinton."

Networks Punt on Report U.S. Intelligence on State of ISIS Fight May Have Been Altered

A story that the networks would have almost assuredly covered if George W. Bush was still President, the major broadcast networks failed to cover on Wednesday a front-page New York Times report that a Pentagon inspector general is investigating the possibility that intelligence assessments on the U.S. fight against ISIS may have be altered to reflect a better picture than reality allowed.

MSNBC’s Maddow Smears Fox News as Just ‘Republican Party Television’

On her self-titled MSNBC show Tuesday night, Rachel Maddow used the current feud between Fox News and Donald Trump to attack the news network as nothing more than an arm of the Republican Party. Maddow admitted that Fox was a “competitor of ours at MSNBC” but dismissed them as a news outlet and merely “Republican Party television. So we not only compete with them but we also cover them as a political entity, you have to if you want to cover Republican politics. So, in that context I have been covering FOX News as a Republican political entity for years now.”
