Emmy Award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos has had quite the spectacular year. Let’s review some of his biggest moments, shall we?
In April, Jorge Ramos graced the cover of Time.

Time printed five different covers for their “100 Most Influential People” issue and the Fusion and Univision anchor was on one of the covers. Kind of a big deal since, up until recently, Ramos was not all that well known by non-Spanish speaking audiences.
At the Time 100 Gala, Ramos called out Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto. And he used the C-word!
Ramos got a lot of attention due to that incident. It was kind of epic and the video of Trump’s goons “deporting” Ramos from the event for supposedly being rude or speaking out of turn or quién sabe qué was EVERYWHERE.
But wait, this led to another viral video moment for Ramos.
When O’Reilly said that Ramos is an activist who can’t possibly cover immigration fairly, Ramos replied, “I don’t think you are the right person to lecture me on advocacy and journalism when you spend most of your program giving opinions and not asking questions, defending Republicans, criticizing Democrats, and, frankly, conducting interviews—soft interviews—with conservatives that you agree with. The difference between you and me is that you are partisan, and I’m independent.”
