[OP-ED]: A familiar voice with an all-too-familiar story

 04/06/2017 - 11:02
Ray Suárez es un verdadero periodista. Tras ascender superando dificultades en los años 70 y 80 -cuando la frase ‘reportero de televisión’ conjuraba imágenes de Mike Wallace y Harry Reasoner y no la de un muchacho puertorriqueño de Brooklyn- este veterano de 60 años es simplemente la norma a la que muchos jóvenes periodistas latinos aún aspiran. youtube.com
English

Best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell says it takes around 10,000 hours of practice to master a craft. 

But there’s a catch. Who’s to say that, by the time you put in the years necessary to get really good at something, you won’t be at an age where it is tough to find gainful employment?

Ray Suarez is a real newsman. Having come up the hard way in the 1970s and ‘80s -- when the phrase “television newscaster” conjured up images of Mike Wallace or Harry Reasoner and not a Puerto Rican kid from Brooklyn -- this 60-year-old veterano is simply the standard to which many young Latino journalists still aspire. Photo: youtube.com

[OP-ED]: Halperin is right: When reporters become ‘combatants,’ they stop being journalists

 04/03/2017 - 08:41
Too many journalists are in the arena, protecting their employers’ brands and going mano a mano with Trump. This means they’re combatants, and that they’ve stopped being journalists. 
English

 I never thought I’d say this, but Mark Halperin is right. 

In May 2015, I wrote a column criticizing Halperin for a series of questions that he posed to Ted Cruz that I considered racist.

[OP-ED]: Cacería de periodistas en México

Periodistas protestan por el asesinato de tres de sus compañeros, en Guadalajara (México) en 2017: Miroslava Breach (Chihuahua), Ricardo Monluí (Veracruz) y Cecilio Pineda (Guerrero). EFE
Spanish

Libertad de prensa a la mexicana. Es una manera triste, cínica quizás, de referirse a la interminable matanza de periodistas en el país azteca.  Perpetrada con total impunidad, todo indica que hay una cacería inmisericorde de comunicadores sociales al sur de la frontera.

[OP-ED]: Open Season on Mexican Journalists

Freedom of the press Mexican style. It is a sad, even cynical way of referring to the unending slaughter of journalists perpetrated with impunity in our neighbor to the South, where it’s open season on freedom of speech.

[OP-ED]: The media just can’t resist Trump’s bait

 02/24/2017 - 08:36

When President Trump attacks the media, he is acting in self-defense.

Much of the media -- particularly our friends at broadcast networks in New York and Washington -- have been mocking, criticizing and dismissing Trump since his June 2015 announcement that he was seeking the presidency.

These are challenging times for journalists, and Trump is only making it worse. Try as they might, they obviously can’t control him. But they can control how they react to him. He makes them crazy, because they let him. EFE
