Jorge Ramos’s expulsion, and the sorry state of Venezuelan media

EARLIER THIS WEEK, the Nicolás Maduro regime detained and expelled journalist Jorge Ramos, one of the most famous news anchors in the world, along with the rest of his crew because Maduro didn’t like the questions Ramos was asking. If a journalist as well-known as Ramos and a network as large as Univision can be expelled from the country, what will be the fate of the local press in Venezuela?

Commencement speech by Jorge Ramos to the students of the Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY. September 14, 2018. My message today is very simple: there are no stupid questions.

People with power -presidents, dictators, kings and queens, business leaders, celebrities, generals, judges, commanders, police officers, social media influencers and all kind of bullies- would love to tell you (or make you feel) that your questions are irrelevant, unimportant and frankly stupid. .

Who gets to dream? America’s immigration battles go beyond walls and borders.

Review of “Stranger” by Jorge Ramos, “The Making of a Dream” by Laura Wides-Muñoz and “The Line Becomes a River” by Francisco Cantú.

My father is a dreamer. He dreamed of America, of having his children grow up here, even though it meant trading a decent existence in Peru for a harder path. My mother dreamed, too, mainly of returning, which we did, often enough that, in whatever place I was, I dreamed of the other.

Booklist
Issue: February 1, 2018
Stranger: The Challenges of a Latino Immigrant in the Trump Era.
Ramos, Jorge (Author). Translated by Ezra E. Fitz.
Mar 2018. 208 p. Vintage, paperback, $15. (9780525563792). 070.9.
Ramos, an Emmy-winning journalist, syndicated columnist, and Univision anchor, attained even greater
visibility in August 2015 when presidential candidate Donald Trump had him thrown out of a press
conference in Iowa. Ramos tells the full story of that confrontation by way of launching this timely and
clarifying mix of candid memoir and sharp commentary about “what it means to be a Latino immigrant in
the time of Trump.” Ramos reflects on why, even though he has lived in the U.S. for 35 years and has
become a citizen and a father, he still feels like a stranger. He recounts his difficult decision to leave
Mexico as a fledgling journalist to escape state censorship, asserts journalism’s role as a “public service,”
and expresses his love for the U.S., an “experiment . . . based on the extraordinary process of converting
‘others’ into ‘us.’” Under Trump, this inclusiveness is grievously imperiled. Decrying discrimination and
deportation and the tragic predicament of the courageous Dreamers, he calls for resistance against the
erosion of freedom. Ramos also celebrates Latino lives and finds reasons for optimism.

STRANGER. The Challenge of a Latino Immigrant in the Trump Era. – KIRKUS REVIEW

The celebrated Mexican-American journalist takes on the anti-immigration tenor of the Trump era.

On Aug. 25, 2015, Donald Trump had the author removed from a press conference in Iowa, telling him, “go back to Univision.” Already well-known for his role as anchor at that network, Ramos (Take a Stand: Lessons from Rebels, 2016, etc.) was thrust further into the spotlight following the incident, an experience that also led him to further soul-searching regarding his status as a legal immigrant in an increasingly anti-immigrant political and social landscape.

Jorge Ramos has sat in an anchorman’s chair longer than Walter Cronkite – about 30 years at Univision’s flagship nightly news program. And even in today’s fractured media market, the journalist commands a TV audience of more than 2 million.
