HOWARD KURTZ (HOST): I'm also buzzed off at Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, who wrote this in Time magazine: "It doesn't matter who you are -- a journalist, a politician or a voter -- we'll all be judged by how we responded to Donald Trump. Trump has forced journalists to revisit rules of objectivity and fairness."

[...]

It's a bit rich to hear Ramos talk about objectivity and fairness. This is a guy who staged that confrontation with Trump shouting at him, "you can't build a wall." And continuing to yell as security escorted him out. Hey, Jorge, if you want to warn the world about Donald Trump, fine. Quit your job and go campaign against him. But stop using the cloak of an anchor to disguise your advocacy as journalism.
