Would Univision try Blackmailing Donald Trump? - Town Hall

"...At any rate, Jorge Ramos is a multi-Emmy winner and author of a bestseller titled Open Borders, which pretty much sums up his position. Marco Rubio, at the time, opposed even the Dream Act. So the plan called for Hispanic Univision tinkling the tune and Hispanic Senator Marco Rubio either stepping and fetching, tap-dancing or being outed in front of the vast majority of America's Hispanic households as anything but a credit to his race, more like a traitor...." see full article

Trump Kicks Hispanic Anchor Out of Press Conference, Tells Him to Go Back to Univision

"...Ramos' ejection from the press conference, which the Trump people quickly thought better of, continues a feud that erupted following Trump's disparaging remarksabout Mexican immigrants during his campaign announcement speech. The Spanish-language Univision, like a handful of other companies, began severing ties with Trump-affiliated businesses in response. Trump continues to boast about the $500 million lawsuit he says he filed against the company...." see full article

He said Kelly "must have had a terrible vacation" because "she's really off her game," and retweeted a message that referred to her as a bimbo...." see full article

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos gets tossed out of Donald Trump event

"...Ramos was allowed back in minutes later, and proceeded to pepper the loudmouthed billionaire businessman with questions about his comments about anchor babies, his plans to build a giant wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and Trump's assertion that many Mexican immigrants are criminals.Trump said he plans to deal with immigration problems in a very humane fashion. I have a bigger heart than you do, Trump told Ramos.While Ramos was gone, Trump said he would have been happy to take his questions. He also denied he was the one who had him removed. I didn't escort him out. You have to talk to security; you're asking me questions, he just stands up and starts screaming, Trump said. Maybe he's at fault also. Somebody walked him out. I don't know where he is, I don't mind if he comes back. ..." see full article

In taking on Jorge Ramos, Donald Trump may have tussled with the wrong media star
"...Latinos, in turn, see Ramos as a leader. According to the Pew Hispanic Center survey, 38% of Latinos surveyed considered Ramos a major Latino leader.At a University of Texas at Austin forum this year, Univision News President Isaac Lee summed up the network's perspective: "Univision's audience knows that Jorge is representing them," Lee said. "He is not asking the questions to be celebrated as a fair and balanced journalist. He's going to ask the person whatever is necessary to push the agenda for a more fair society, for a more inclusive society and for the Hispanic community to be better."Univision brass also stood up for Ramos on Wednesday evening, calling Trump's behavior "beyond contempt." "Mr. Trump demonstrated complete disregard for him and for the countless Hispanics whom Jorge seeks to represent," Univision Communications Chief Executive Randy Falco said in a statement...." see full article

At Donald Trump Event, Jorge Ramos of Univision Is Snubbed, Ejected and Debated

"...Mr. Trump was silent as Mr. Ramos, an Emmy-winning journalist who was on the cover of Time magazine's World's Most Influential People issue, was removed from the room. Several other journalists asked Mr. Trump why he refused to take questions from Mr. Ramos. The billionaire real estate investor, who is leading in Republican polls for the presidential nomination, said it was because he had asked a question without being called on.In an interview on CNN on Monday, Mr. Ramos accused Mr. Trump of spreading hate with his calls for mass deportations of undocumented families and repealing birthright citizenship granted by the Constitution...." see full article

The Trump-Ramos dustup: great for Univision, not so for Trump
"...But one of Trump's campaigners made a remark Tuesday that might come back to haunt The Donald even more than his own one-liners, all pre-tested to stir smoke and fury.When Trump gave the 30-year news anchor a ratings boost by ejecting him from an Iowa press conference, Trump even threw in a network plug: Go back to Univision. But when cameras followed Ramos, they picked up an uglier comment. You're very rude  Get out of my country! said a yet-identified middle-aged man in a sport jacket bearing a Trump button.Read more here: http://www.star-telegram.com/opinion/opn-columns-blogs/bud-kennedy/article32599074.html#storylink=cpy..." see full article

Donald Trump kicks a Univision reporter out of his press conference, chaos ensues
"...Trump has reveled in feuding with his fellow Republicans, and the tussle with Ramos underscores his eagerness to antagonize Hispanics if it plays well with his anti-immigration supporters. He started his campaign, after all, by characterizing Mexican immigrants as criminals, and swiftly lost his business partnerships with the many companies whose leaders were offended. Univision was the first to cut ties, canceling its broadcasts of the Trump-owned Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.And yet, they love me, Trump insisted yesterday, in his exchange with Ramos. Do you know how many Latinos work for me? Do you know how many Hispanics are working for me? They love me. In fact, polls suggest that Hispanics despise him, but no matter: Part of Trump's appeal is specifically that he spews a lot of nonsense...." see full article

Trump Supporter Tells U.S. Citizen Jorge Ramos To Get Out Of My Country
"...Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's passionate fans will likely support him for any reason, even if it means going after U.S. citizen journalists. Soon after Donald Trump ejected the Spanish media Univision journalist Jorge Ramos from a press conference for asking questions about immigration on Tuesday night, a man told Ramos to get out of my country. You were very rude this is not about you, the unidentified man says, confronting Ramos outside the press conference, in video footage uploaded to the Univision s website. Get out of my country. Get out This is my country I'm a U.S. citizen too, Ramos quipped...." see full article

Donald Trump Gets Earful in Spanish as Latino Outlets Air Disdain

"...And though cable news and the Sunday morning news shows have blanketed their political coverage with stories about many aspects of Mr. Trump's improbable campaign, the focus of Spanish-language news programs has been almost exclusively on Mr. Trump's controversial stance on immigration.About 58 percent of all mentions of Mr. Trump in mainstream news media broadcast, cable, radio and online outlets in the past month have focused on immigration, while on Spanish-language news programs, the proportion is almost 80 percent, according to an analysis by Two.42.Solutions, a nonpartisan media analytics company. The Spanish-language news media has also been more critical in its coverage of Mr. Trump's positions on the issue, with nearly all of it negative in tone...." see full article

Donald Trump and Univision's Jorge Ramos Spar on Immigration - TIME
"...As Ramos continued to speak, Trump appeared to glance at his regular, traveling bodyguard and click his lips. The bodyguard then approached Ramos and escorted him out of the room.When a reporter asked Trump about the exchange moments later, Trump said, I don't really know much about him I didn't escort him out. Whoever security is escorted him out. Trump added Somebody just walked him out, I don't know where he is, I don't even mind if he comes back, frankly He's obviously a very emotional person. About ten minutes later, Ramos was allowed back into the room, and again challenged Trump on his immigration policy, saying Your immigration plan is full of empty promises. You cannot deport 11 million people. You cannot deny citizenship to the children. You cannot ..." see full article
