The attitude of U.S. mainstream media toward Puerto Rico

#F*ck you, ESPN!! Degrading insults won’t give you another medal …. Face it USA, this medal belongs to Monica and to Puerto Rico!! 😡 🇵🇷


Book - 12-10

In an immediate response to Monica Puig’s gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics, the US mainstream media has shown its true colors.

A few media outlets noted that it was the first gold medal win in history, for the island of Puerto Rico…and then left it at that.

But a few other “major news media” took it a step further. The most offensive was this one from ESPN…

Olympic Gold Medals

We want to thank ESPN, and the US mainstream media, for reminding us that the US did not “liberate” Puerto Rico in 1898…

But instead took 80% of her farmland, 40% of her currency, raised prices by 20%, denied a minimum wage, installed a Jones Act, opened secret FBI files on 100,000 Puerto Ricans, sent hundreds of thousands more off to war, imprisoned and killed her leaders, fabricated a $72 billion “public debt,” and now installed a Financial Control Board.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. Esta gráfica es una gran mentira. Lo triste es que la gente como usted no hace una investigación seria sobre de dónde salió ni nada por el estilo. Es obvio que es una gráfica alterada porque el estilo de las dos barras gráficas son diferentes.


  2. “La gente como yo …. ” Ja!!! Chequea el “post” original …. antes de comentar en este lugar. El blogger quien escribio la informacion documenta todo lo que escribe. Creo que debes revisar el blog original, el libro mencionado y aprender de le historia de Puerto Rico …..
