Trump’s Attack on Hispanic Judge Not a Two Sided Issue Requiring Media ‘Balance’

June 7, 2016
Filed under: Writing — Tags: , , , , , — Charlotte @ 2:57 pm

Donald Trump recently claimed that having Judge Gonzalo Curiel, a Hispanic judge, preside over one of the lawsuits against Trump University, is somehow biased against Trump. Trump went on to say that even a Muslim judge might be unfit to hear a case against him as well, a comment denounced by the vast majority of Republican leaders for being bigoted and undermining the judicial system. Dan recently wrote an article for Mediaite.com  on this issue NOT requiring media balance or an objective light, he commented, “In certain cases, the two sides are much simpler: right and wrong. In those relatively rare cases, it should be the media’s obligation and duty to shed the veneer of “objectivity” and specifically and vociferously call it what it is. Wrong. Donald Trump‘s claim that Judge Gonzalo Curiel, presiding over one of the lawsuits against Trump University, is somehow biased against him because he is “Mexican”(born in Indiana of course) is one of those cases.” Read the full article here.

Dan wrote an article for LawNewz.com about the ongoing Hillary Clinton email scandal. Media reports are stating the FBI has not found criminal wrongdoing in the investigation of her email server, thus far. Dan writes, “As I have explained before, criminal wrongdoing can and should not be equated with doing wrong. Based on what we know now, I believe Clinton is only guilty of the latter but who knows what the investigation uncovers.” Dan continues to analyze the ongoing situation in his piece; read the full article here.

 

Dan Comments on ‘Dora the Explorer’ Actress in Vaping Lawsuit

April 20, 2016

Dan appeared on Good Morning America, April 13th to discuss 15-year-old Fatima Ptacek, the voice behind Dora, who is now named in a lawsuit filed in Manhattan civil court. The AP reports that the case, brought by Nadia Leonelli and Fredrik Sundwall, alleges that Ptacek encouraged their 14-year-old daughter last December to join her in using a vaping pen to in a bathroom at a private New York school. “The parents are basically saying the school violated its own rules and it’s so unfair they should be forced to readmit their daughter,” Dan commented. Dan added, “’I was discriminated against because I’m not a celebrity’ is a very difficult legal argument to make.” Watch the full segment here.

mamDan has kicked off  LawNewz with a bang commenting on the Steven Avery case as well as the Brendan Dassey case from the hit Netflix documentary series, “Making A Murderer”. The true crime docu-series has struck a nerve with the public and has taken social media by storm, so Dan evaluated the evidence to weigh in on the guilt or innocence of Avery and Dassey. He writes, “Not since the OJ Simpson case brought the nation to a virtual standstill, has the American public so fiercely and antagonistically debated facts, procedures and testimony in a state murder trial”. Dan goes on to analyze the facts and evidence of the case and concludes (as the title of the article suggests) “Avery Absolutely Guilty But Dassey Innocent”. Read the full piece here.
