<p>[See <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2015/08/26/jorge-ramos-j…; for more.] Fresh from his confrontation with Donald Trump on Tuesday night, activist reporter Jorge Ramos appeared on ABC and CBS to pitch the idea that it&#39;s the job of journalists to openly oppose the candidate&#39;s positions. On <em>Good Morning America</em>, Wednesday, he asked colleague George Stephanopoulos, &quot;We have to denounce that he wants to deny citizenship to children being born here.&quot;&nbsp; He added, &quot;They&#39;re citizens, just like [Trump&#39;s children], and it is impossible to build a 1900-mile wall... So that&#39;s the kind of questions that I was asking Mr. Trump.&quot; Of course, those were statements and not questions. Lobbying for more subjectivity in the press, Ramos declared, &quot;...I think the best journalism happens when you take a stand... We are not only required, but we are forced to take a stand.&quot;&nbsp;</p>
