Abstract

The expansion of social media has allowed much more participation and engagement in the work of journalism. However, that doesn’t dilute the importance of standards and quality, and although many individuals may not be journalists they do need to commit to the acts of journalism. Jorge Ramos is a deeply driven Latino immigrant journalist who has used his adversities to educate others on the importance of standing up for truthful, factual, journalism. In 2017, Jorge Ramos delivered a speech titled, “Donald Trump, I don’t want to be your friend.” Ramos engages the audience by employing several rhetorical techniques. Using series of rhetorical terms, his own narrative, and a persona based on his experience with Donald Trump, immigration issues, and the field of journalism, Jorge Ramos reflects on his earlier journalistic aspirations. These aspirations, reflected in the speech, consist of using civic engagement to provide the truth and defend the freedom of press.
