5 Charts That Help Explain Donald Trump’s War With the Media.

DUBUQUE, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump engaged in a prolonged confrontation with the anchor of the nation’s leading Spanish-language network during a news conference Tuesday, first having the well-known news personality removed before allowing him back in. Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump and his followers may think that Jorge Ramos is just another loudmouth reporter trying to derail their campaign.Donald Trump on Tuesday temporarily banished Univision’s Jorge Ramos from a press conference in Dubuque, Iowa, on Tuesday, bringing the number of journalists he’s publicly feuding with to two.As Trump continues to rise in the polls, voters who support him continually say they like the businessman because he speaks his mind, CBS2’s Mark Albert reported. “I’ve been a journalist for more than 30 years. Jorge Ramos, the Miami-based anchor for Univision, stood up and began to ask Trump about his immigration proposal, which includes ending automatic citizenship for infants born in the United States to parents in the country illegally.

But for millions of Hispanic viewers, the Univision anchor is the equivalent of a modern-day Tom Brokaw or Walter Cronkite: A trusted source of news and opinion, and quite possibly the most influential Spanish-speaking journalist in the world. Norman Vincent Peale, author of “The Power of Positive Thinking.” Trump says Peale’s sermons were so good that “you hated to leave church.” In his presidential campaign, Trump declared that he’s winning support from evangelical Christians. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo poll released Aug. 3 showed a whopping 75% of Hispanics have a negative view of the Republican presidential front-runner. Born and raised in Mexico, Ramos is the co-anchor for a top-rated news program on Univision called Noticiero Univision and the host of a Sunday morning political-news program on the Spanish-language network called Al Punto. In an email sent to 100,000 evangelical pastors over the weekend, Cruz cites what he calls “Planned Parenthood’s barbaric practices of harvesting the body parts of innocent babies and selling them to the highest bidder.” In his email and an online video, Cruz asks the pastors to join a Tuesday afternoon conference call about a defunding fight he plans to lead in the coming weeks.

He’s suing the network because it pulled out of a contract to air Trump’s Miss America pageant after making controversial remarks about immigration. “He was making a bit of a speech more than he was asking a question, and he had not yet been called on so, Trump had some, some minor ground for trying to restore some decorum. He also hosts an English-language program called America with Jorge Ramos, which is broadcast on Fusion, a channel that is co-owned by Univision and Disney/ABC. He says pastors will be asked to preach a sermon on abortion this coming Sunday and lead their congregations in a “day of prayer and fasting” on Sept. 9. The Univision anchor’s influence is difficult to compare to that of other mainstream journalists, in part because Univision’s reach within the Hispanic market is unlike anything in the English-speaking media world.

You weren’t called.” Trump has insulted Hispanics by saying, in his announcement speech in June, that Mexico is “sending people that have lots of problems…They are bringing drugs. The network reaches 97% of Hispanic households in the U.S., according to Forbes, and its daily news program Noticiero pulls in an average 1.9 million viewers. ROME (AP) — The U.S. ambassador to the Vatican says he expects Pope Francis will call on the U.S. to rediscover its fundamental values, including its long history of welcoming foreigners, when he visits next month and becomes the first pope to address Congress.

In an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press, Ambassador Kenneth Hackett said he expects migration, income inequality, family issues, the environment and the international persecution of Christians to be raised by Francis during his Sept. 22-27 visit to Washington, New York and Philadelphia. Trump, however, says Kelly needs to apologize to him for the questions she asked during the first presidential debate. “It’s difficult to think of anything that is comparable in modern presidential politics,” said University of Virginia Center for Politics Director Larry Sabato. “The more controversies that Donald Trump is in, the less likely it will be that voters concerned about electability will choose him,” said Sabato.

I think the best journalism happens when you take a stand.” The incident happened the day after Trump resumed his feud with Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly. Ramos, who is 57, got his start on a 60 Minutes-style news program at Grupo Televisa’s flagship XEW-TV channel in Mexico City, but later quit his job after a story he worked on that was critical of Mexico’s government was censored by the station.

Trump said Ailes is a great guy and added that he even liked Kelly’s show on Tuesday night, Brennan reported. “He has to make what is a very difficult decision for himself and his family, and he should have the space and the opportunity to decide what he wants to do,” said Clinton. 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. Ramos has been an anchor on the network’s Noticiero news program since 1986, and has interviewed multiple U.S. presidents and foreign dignitaries, and reported on everything from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the war in Afghanistan. Yet four weeks away from its opening in Philadelphia, friction is mounting as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Roman Catholics lobby for a broader role in the event and organizers move to limit them. He has won eight Emmys for his TV journalism and has written eleven books, including one called “A Country for All: An Immigrant Manifesto.” Although Ramos may have as large a following as Cronkite or Brokaw, the Univision journalist is unlike them in one way: He is not afraid to express his opinion, and to take a stand on issues that affect his viewership, particularly the U.S. government’s approach to immigration and its treatment of Hispanic citizens.

The tensions surrounding the gathering will pose a real-world test of the pope’s approach that emphasizes compassion and a welcoming attitude while upholding Catholic doctrine that marriage is only between a man and a woman. The Trump-Ramos feud continued Wednesday morning, meanwhile, with Trump telling NBC News Ramos was “out of line” and “like a madman” at Tuesday’s news conference. He has confronted politicians like Ted Cruz, as well as and right-wing commentators such as Ann Coulter on his program, and has criticized Trump for his views. Though that dwarfs the two anchors’ combined engagement numbers during the same time period, Topsy’s own graph shows that their spikes in engagement (whether positive or negative) echo Trump’s.

Ramos was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people earlier this year, and in her short profile of him, CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour wrote: “Jorge Ramos is silver-haired and gray-eyed, but inside that ring of steel beats a heart of gold. Gays and lesbians can attend the meeting as individuals, but groups supporting gay marriage were denied exhibit space and other official options for presenting their views. Ramos wrangles with President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner; he swims the Rio Grande; he says he asks every question as if it’s his last, determined to get an answer or go down trying. Between late July and mid-August, Ipsos/Reuters polls (collected by HuffPost Pollster) consistently showed Trump leading the pack, culminating with support from 29 percent of those polled at the end of August. Trump to sit down for an in-depth interview with Jorge to talk about the specifics of his proposals.” Trump also said he would offer a foreign policy proposal within the next month.

Anthony Catholic Church in Oakley, California, were lamenting a great loss when one or more thieves made off with the church’s tabernacle, the sacred receptacle used to carry the Blessed Sacrament. But he hinted at some of his thoughts during a free-wheeling rally in the Dubuque convention auditorium that followed the news conference. “We protect Germany for no money.

This remark plays to the cliché that Latinos are hot-tempered and ignores the reality that Ramos was courteous (if dogged) in his line of questioning. Trump’s snapping, “Go back to Univision,” carries echoes of the loaded phrase “go back to where you came from.” Yet coming from the man who has called Mexican immigrants “rapists” and made insulting remarks about Sen. Do you know how many Hispanics are working for me?” he said. “They love me.” Aside from the obvious fact that working for someone does not necessarily equate to loving — let alone voting for — him, Trump is delusional. Consider that one prominent Latino polling firm has estimated that whoever the GOP nominee is, he or she will have to win over more Hispanic voters than ever before.

Whether he is denigrating the higher (Ramos) or the lower (“illegals”) among us, we all are aware of the ugly sentiments behind such comments and actions.
