Our first Hispanic Heritage Month feature is Jorge Ramos. He is journalism ROYALTY. The Mexican journalist became famous and interviewed some of the world’s top leaders while on Univision’s evening news (which I grew up watching). He continues to be a part of important conversations with important people.
He has also been named one of Time Magazine’s ‘Most Influential People.’ Jorge Ramos has become a passionate advocate and voice for the immigrant and Hispanic community in the U.S. He has legend status in my book. He has lost his neutrality over the years, which has been slightly disappointing from a journalism angle, but he always uses his voice to talk about the things that really matter— which I admire.
He is someone who I looked up to very much in my childhood and was an inspiration while I studied journalism.

I think as the world becomes more politicized, it’s harder and harder to find neutrality in reporting . . .
It feels that way, but I wish there was more neutral reporting. But as my journalism professor used to say, neutrality is I guess an illusion.
I always felt the same! It was a veneer.
