The National Association of Hispanic Journalists President Hugo Balta returned $17,000 to Fox News because he claims Fox Radio host Todd Starnes and others who he says have repeatedly used racist language toward “immigrants.” This reaction is more political posturing by a group of liberal/leftist open-borders supporters who pretend to be objective journalists.
Fox News was supposed to be one of the sponsors the conference held in San Antonio, but Balta calls Starnes’ comment “incendiary,” and therefore offensive to NAHJ. Apparently, NAHJ leaders view any honest discussion about illegal immigration as “racist.”
NAHJ is led by leftist radicals who promote political opinion as news. They're "professional racists" who see themselves as “Hispanics First” and expect special treatment as “entitled victims” because of their ethnicity, national origin, and gender.
NAHJ does not address (or admit) there is a leftist bias in the reporting among most of their members. In particular, they refuse to describe the illegal immigration crisis accurately, but rather fault American policies and even history.
Instead of unifying and integrating immigrants and Americans of Latino descent into society, NAHJ encourages them to view themselves as “victims.” They also undermine American values with allegations of “racism.” about anything they dislike.
Finally, NAHJ excludes and even attacks any Hispanic journalist that does not embrace their point of view. We should ask Balta and NAHJ, where is the diversity of opinion in the organization?
The organization should be called the “National Association of Liberals/Leftist Hispanic Journalists.”
