[OP-ED]: The elite media -- self-absorbed but not self-aware

 05/12/2017 - 09:17
Now that Trump is president, you can turn to just about any channel -- absent Fox News -- and hear reporters and anchors accusing Trump or other administration officials of outright lying or pursuing policies that will hurt people -- or, in the case of the GOP health care bill, actually kill them. 
English

Riddle me this: How can the so-called elite media be so self-absorbed and still have so little self-awareness? 

Today’s journalists too often make themselves the story. If a reporter gets arrested at a protest, he’ll be on the Sunday shows doing what he is not supposed to be doing: expressing his opinion.

10 Latina Warriors you should know

Suffragettes, protesters, speakers and leaders - from Ana Roqué Géigel de Duprey and Luisa Capetillo in the late 1800s to Mariposa Fernández and Monica Carrillo in our current times - since the beginning of the 20th century, women have had to fight for their place in society as equal individuals, in front of a oppressive masculine society and a convenient feminine one.

[OP-ED]: The TPP lives -- maybe!

 02/16/2017 - 10:32
The US trade deficit of goods and services rose by 0.4% in 2016 to 502.3 billion dollars, which is the highest figure since 2012. The figure corresponds to the last year of government of the former president Barack Obama, who had promised to double the number of US exports by the end of his term in 2010, which has proven to be unfeasible.

Among President Donald Trump’s first acts was an order withdrawing from the TPP. This fulfilled Trump’s campaign promise to torpedo the high-profile agreement between the United States and 11 other Pacific Rim countries, led by Japan and Mexico. As important, it symbolized Trump’s conviction that ineptly negotiated trade agreements are at the core of America’s economy’s problems.

Ansiando ser estadounidense

Chicago—En
un mundo donde se considera a todo el mundo excepcional y donde todos creen que
lo son, como los residentes del ficticio Lake Wobegon de Garrison Keillor
—fuertes, bien parecidos y por encima del promedio— yo me esfuerzo por ser
normal, usual y parte de la corriente general.
