WASHINGTON A group of conservative Latino leaders launched a campaign against journalist Jorge Ramos and asked the Univision network to remove him from election coverage for having "crossed a significant line" with his open opposition to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
"Journalists have a responsibility to report on (elections) with as much impartiality, independence and fairness as they can possibly muster -- it is certainly not the job of journalists to tell citizens either who to vote against or who to vote for," said the members of the "Ramos Must Go" campaign.
They said that Ramos has shown himself to be incapable of being an impartial and credible anchor for Univision's millions of viewers.

WASHINGTON -- Promising to deliver Donald Trump and the Republicans the highest percentage of black votes since 1965 Voting Rights Act, the founder of Black Men for Bernie is now launching Trump for Urban Communities.
Bruce Carter is touting the effort "largest ground game in the country" targeted at black voters -- with a platform focused on urban investment, self-sufficiency, and resources for small businesses. "It's about teaching people how to fish instead of giving them a fish and walking away," Carter told BuzzFeed News in an interview.
He said he's aiming to place 2,000 staffers in North Carolina, Florida, and Pennsylvania, hiring them to make direct voter contact and pitch Trump's gospel by setting up barbershops as "our information hubs." This would be an enormous project; by comparison, Hillary Clinton's campaign had about 700 staffers total in recent months. read more
Asian residents of south Sacramento say they've formed their own armed patrols to respond to a wave of robberies that has terrorized the community, where business owners report a steep drop in customers because people are afraid to go out after dark.
Sacramento police, meanwhile, say they are weighing whether to classify some of the robberies as hate crimes.
