Time magazine has released their list of the 100 Most Influential People 2015! The list was divided into 5 categories: Titans, Pionees, Artists, Leaders and Icons. Each of these has a special cover and Univision’sJorge Ramos is front and center as one of the top leaders. The 57-year-old newscaster hosts the top-rated Spanish-language news program nightly on Univision, a weekend political show called “Al Punto” and Fusion’s “America with Jorge Ramos.” Mr. Ramos has been a leader among Latinos in the U.S., pushing forward for an immigration reform and shedding light on issues that concern the Latino population. In the past Jorge Ramos has blasted President Obama for not taking into account Latinos and the Hispanic media during important topical issues.
The Univision News anchor, was not too happy to have been left out of the media blitz the POTUS had during the Syria issue. The journalist took to Twitter to blast the Commander-In-Chief for the lack of interest he showed informing the Hispanic community over the issues in Syria. “Pres. Obama gives 6 interviews today. None of those to Univision. Why? Hispanics also care about Syria. Same mistake as presidential debates,” Ramos tweeted. “150,000+ Latinos are serving in the U.S. military. But none of the 6 interviews given today by Obama include Univision #LessonsNOTlearned.” The legendaryChristiane Amanpour interviewed the leader for the magazine’s special issue where he said that Hispanis are “truly tired” that Democrants and Republicans have the “Christopher Columbus syndrome.” He explained: “They discover us during the presidential campaigns and then they forget about us.”
