In February, Fox News’ Roger Ailes acknowledged that his cable news network intends to “articulate” a specific message to Latino voters: “Republicans have a lot more opportunity for them.” That’s usually not the job of an ostensibly independent news organization, but that’s what he said.

Fox News Latino, however, ran a very different headline and image.
