Jorge Ramos Grills Bill O’Reilly on His Treatment of Pres. Obama vs. Pres. Bush

O'Reilly RamosThe interview might have taken place on the “O’Reilly Factor” set, but it was Fusion’s Jorge Ramos doing the interrogating in an interview between Ramos and Bill O’Reilly that aired last night on Fusion.

“You’ve destroyed President Barack Obama. In almost every single show you criticize President Barack Obama and you didn’t do the same with President George W. Bush,” Ramos said to O’Reilly. “Yes I did…I was hard on Bush and I was hard on Obama,” O’Reilly shot back. “No you were not, I saw one of your interviews, it was kind of weak with President Bush,” Ramos responded.

The verbal jousting continued back and forth on who has been hard—and not hard—on certain leaders, with Ramos then invoking FNC’s slogan. “You can do whatever you want, but that’s not fair and balanced. If you really want to be fair and balanced, you’d have to be as strong against a Republican president as under a Democratic president.”

Jorge Ramos Asks Hillary Clinton: ‘Do You Think You Have a Latino Problem?’

In a preview clip ahead of Tuesday’s full interview, Fusion’s Jorge Ramos asks former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if she has a potential problem with a rising voting demographic.

“Do you think you have a Latino problem?” Ramos asked based on recent comments Clinton made on sending back Central American children who cross the U.S. border. “I hope not!” Clinton responded, laughing that she “never has before, so I hope not.” “Some of them should be sent back,” Clinton continued, adding she’d deport children who don’t have claims to asylum or family connections in America.

From the Rio Grande to the Canyon of Heroes

ClintonRamosJust days after swimming the Rio Grande, Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos was glancing up at the World Trade Center, along with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

In the continuation of a series of interviews about her new memoir, Clinton and Ramos chose lower Manhattan for their interview, which will air Tuesday night on Fusion. The conversation touches on current global crises, the political climate leading up to the midterm and 2016 presidential elections, and immigration reform.

Why Jorge Ramos Swam the Rio Grande (It Wasn’t to Get to the Other Side)

JorgeRamosSwimsNo, that’s not Jorge Ramos taking a dip in the Atlantic Ocean off Miami Beach. In fact, the Fusion and Univision anchor swam across the Rio Grande as part of his Fusion special tonight on the border crises.

“I swam with my cameraman all the way to the Mexican side without actually touching the Mexican side because that’s illegal by treaty,” Ramos tells the Daily Beast. Also, even though Ramos has dual U.S./Mexican citizenship, he didn’t have his passport.

As for what it’s like:

It’s exactly what you think it is. There are very strong undercurrents, a lot of rocks and plants and a muddy bottom. If you try to stand up you might be stuck because it’s so muddy you can’t actually move your legs. It is very, very contaminated. And it’s dark. It’s impossible to look through the water. It took me about 15 minutes.

The Morning Ticker: Sharpton, Ramos, Rascon

  • MSNBC host Al Sharpton put himself at the center of the news this weekend. Following the choke-hold death of suspect Eric Garner while in NYPD custody last week, Sharpton led a march and press appearances with the victim’s family, calling for change in police tactics.

  • Fusion’s Jorge Ramos will anchor “America” from the U.S.-Mexican border tomorrow. Ramos will report on the journey thousands of unaccompanied children are taking as they flee the increasing violence and economic hardship in their home countries.

  • KNBC reporter Jacob Rascon is on temporary duty for NBC News’ Los Angeles bureau for the rest of the summer. Rascon, the son of former CBS News correspondent Art Rascon, joined KNBC in 2012. His first story for NBC News is the Washington wildfires.

Isaac Lee Praises Fusion’s ‘Comprehensive, Truly Distinct’ World Cup Coverage

Fusion World Cup celebrationFusion staffers gathered in Miami last night to celebrate the end of the World Cup and welcome back the team who traveled to Brazil to lead the network’s coverage, including “Soccer Gods” hosts Nando Vila and Simon Carr and VP of news Mark Lima (pictured). In a note to staffers yesterday afternoon, Fusion CEO Isaac Lee called the World Cup coverage “comprehensive, truly distinct, and full of personality across our television and digital platforms”:

Nando and Simon did a terrific job anchoring our coverage in primetime with “The Soccer Gods” live from Copacabana Beach every night.  As two avid fans, they brought a level of passion, excitement, and humor to our coverage that struck exactly the right tone for Fusion. While they shined in front of the camera, it wouldn’t have been possible without Zach Rigg and Pablo Sanchis behind the scenes making them look good!

Fusion not only delivered a unique take on the action unfolding on the pitch every day, but it was the stories from the streets of Brazil that helped us stand out. From Mariana van Zeller watching the Brazil v Chile match in a favela with one of Brazil’s largest, most violent drug gangs to Pedro Andrade scoring interviews with some of the biggest soccer stars of all time includingPele and Marta. Jorge Ramos and Leon Krauze also contributed their unique insights both on “Soccer Gods” and by live-blogging several matches on Soccer.Fusion.net.

With the World Cup over and the midterm elections on the horizon, Fusion is building up its booking unit. Capital New York’s Alex Weprin has more on the new hires that will lead the effort to secure interviews with big-name guests.

Germany or Argentina? Univision is Another Winner at the World Cup

SoccerGodsThe New York Times says the “biggest scorer” of the 2014 World Cup may be Univision.

An A1 story in today’s paper adds up what the World Cup has meant to the dominant Spanish-language U.S. network: Univision coverage has topped competitors ABC/ESPN in markets including Los Angeles, Miami and Houston. The network has averaged 80 million viewers, or about 60 percent more than the 2010 tournament. Univision has carried the World Cup since 1972. But this will be the final tournament until at least 2026. Univision rival, NBCU-owned Telemundo outbid Univision for the Spanish-language rights for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

Over on Fusion, which is a joint venture between Univision and ABC, the host of “The Soccer Gods” Nando Vila and Simon Carr, gave their predictions for today’s Germany-Argentina final to Univison News anchor Jorge Ramos. Says Vila: “Simon, before the tournament, predicted that Germany was going to win. I predicted that Argentina was going to win… so we have a lot riding on this, mainly our entire credibility.”
