Must See TV

It turns out we actually do have a news media in this country. Unfortunately it’s in Spanish:

Daily Caller:

Spanish-language television network Univision plans to air a television special that it said reveals more violence than previously known, as well as the stories of how many more Operation Fast and Furious victims were killed, the network announced in a Friday release.

“The consequences of the controversial ‘Fast and Furious’ undercover operation put in place by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2009 have been deadlier than what has been made public to date,” the network said. “The exclusive, in-depth investigation by Univision News’ award-winning Investigative Unit — Univision Investiga — has found that the guns that crossed the border as part of Operation Fast and Furious caused dozens of deaths inside Mexico.”

Among other groups of Fast and Furious victim stories Univision says it will tell in the special to air Sunday evening at 7 p.m., is one about how “16 young people attending a party in a residential area of Ciudad Juárez in January of 2010″ were gunned down with weapons the Obama administration gave to drug cartel criminals through Fast and Furious.

“Univision News’ Investigative Unit was also able to identify additional guns that escaped the control of ATF agents and were used in different types of crimes throughout Mexico,” the network added. “Furthermore, some of these guns — none of which were reported by congressional investigators — were put in the hands of drug traffickers in Honduras, Puerto Rico, and Colombia. A person familiar with the recent congressional hearings called Univision’s findings ‘the holy grail’ that Congress had been searching for.”

The show will be in Spanish with English subtitles. Check your local listings for exact time and channel numbers in your area.

    If this is on at the same time everywhere then I’ll do an open thread tomorrow so we can discuss it.

    I just saw my first Romney ad on television. It was one with Artur Davis and I saw it on AMC

    Evil and the masses are too disinterested to say “enough with this psycho shit!” 👿

  4. angienc says:

    So we have to go to the foreign press & the Spanish language/Latino owned & operated TV station to get the actual “news” about what is going on in this country.

    How long before we’re not allowed to even do that?

    Best simple piece I’ve read on the Laffer curve. Fair, hits both sides for how they exagerate and misuse it at times.

    • carol haka says:

      The results are not what is important. As idiot Obama said when Hillary and Stephanopolis tried to explain it to him, its an ideological pathology about fairness. 👿

    • myiq2xu says:

      I first heard about the Laffer curve way back in 1980. I didn’t know until a few months ago what it really meant.

    • wmcb says:

      It gets a bad rap because some idiots use it to say tax cuts ALWAYS increase revenue. That is not what the theory ever said. Same way other idiots use Keynes to justify endless forever deficit spending. Um, no.

  6. wmcb says:

    I hope Univision eats his lunch. About time someone did.

  7. I’m glad you posted this. Sharing on the P&L and RD facebook page tomorrow. Anthony & I will also discuss it on This American Election tomorrow.

    Interesting that Univision is putting this out there. They don’t do shit in Mexico where the tally for murder is 35,000+. Why don’t they also take a deep look at the corruption in Mexico? Scared? Probably.

  9. angienc says:

    Damn — were have I been? I missed the fact that Eugene Genovese (famous Marxist & Southern historian who later in life rejected communism & became a conservative) died 3 days ago. I guess I’m paying way, way too much attention the the crap MSNBC is pulling.

    Anyway, there is a really good interview on Genovese at NRO from 2011 here if you want a good read:

    Money quote:

    Turning to the president of the United States, I ask Genovese to classify him for me. What is Obama? A McGovernite, a social democrat, a socialist, a pinko, a red? Genovese says that Obama is redder than people suspect, even his conservative adversaries. Obama’s instinct, he says, is to take the most radical position he can get away with. What’s more, he is “probably the vainest president I can remember, and the least competent. What surprised me was the incompetence. The first time I laid eyes on this guy — I heard him make a speech — I said, ‘He’s a demagogue.’ One more. More skillful than most. I mean, he is clearly a good speechifier. I say ‘speechifier’ because, in a classical sense, an orator he’s not. You just have to read Demosthenes and Cicero to know what an orator is. He ain’t it. Churchill yes, him no. And furthermore he butchers the English language. Gets away with it. But he does.”

    All his life, Genovese had been hoping for a black president and a woman president. So, “we got a black president — thanks a lot.” Still, Genovese allows, Obama’s election was an historic occasion, symbolizing the huge progress we have made as a country.

    • DM says:

      Dinesh D’Souza said at the end of 2016 that electing a Black president was an accomplishment of the voters (not Obama). I wish we had waited for that accomplishment until a good candidate came along.

    • DM says:

      I found this part interesting because Genovese makes a distinction between the 1965 Young Republicans (same people that became big G.W.B. supporters) and conservatives. I agree with him. I’m also not surprised when a communist becomes a conservative. imho. Both ideologies are not that far apart.

      At Rutgers, he stated that he would welcome a victory by the Vietcong. Therefore, he became an issue in the New Jersey gubernatorial campaign that year. Former vice president Richard Nixon and other Republicans said that Rutgers ought to fire him: A professor at a public university was openly in favor of the enemy in time of war. Rutgers refused to fire him. I ask Genovese — not 100 percent sure what the answer will be — whether he thinks the university was right. He does. He points out that he never proselytized in the classroom. Besides, there was academic freedom to consider. He further recalls that, while the Young Republicans on campus were in favor of his firing, the Young Conservatives, to their right, were not. They too stood on academic-freedom grounds.

    Holy crap! I had just dozed off when I got a huge jolt! I was at the epicenter of a 3.4 earthquake in Irving, Texas. We don’t have earthquakes in Texas! 👿

    I read this article and watched the video. then I went to the cnn site to see the video of the banghazi raid
    I was very surprised to see that the video was not allowed the be shown in this country

    Interesting note here: I was driving home just now and listening to a spanish station…a game i play with myself to see how much i can understand/pick up as spanish speakers are clearly the majority in my town now…They were slamming Obama about Iran. Playing clips of the UN speech then attacking…not sure what it means but it’s striking that univision is willing to go after tell some truth that english stations won’t touch. I chock it up to “no white guilt, no stupid creative class liberal nonsense.” Of course, we will not see any of this on Telemundo – why? – It’s owned by NBC.

    My mom just called. They are selling homemade tamales at her church tomorrow. I’ll be having a nice pre-game meal.

    She asked “Do you prefer pork or chicken?”

    My answer “Yes”

    their will be a diaper shortage.

    OMG, young mothers may have to get cloth diapers and wash them
    oh the humanity

    • Jadzia says:

      Cloth diapers (which I used with my first 3 kids) are pretty awful if you don’t have a clothes dryer (which, as of about a year ago, we don’t) because they dry on the line stiff as a board. It’s like wrapping your kid’s ass in a shingle.

    Reblogged this on Mcnorman's Weblog and commented:
    Shamelessly stolen from TCH. Why doesn’t Univision do this type of investigative journalism in Mexico? How do they miss a 300′ tower?
