Fusion host and Univision news anchor Jorge Ramos has announced his daughter will be joining the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. “As journalists the most important thing we have is our credibility and integrity,” he writes in a post to the Fusion website. “We maintain that, in part, through transparency with our audience, our colleagues and our critics. That is why I am disclosing that my daughter, Paola, has accepted a position working with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.”
Ramos, like CNN’s Chris Cuomo and MSNBC’s José Díaz-Balart, will now balance a news career and a family member in politics. He says he’s proud his daughter is taking an active role in politics, but he won’t let her job impact his work:
Like many reporters who have parents, siblings or other family members that are active in politics, this will not change how I approach my duty as a journalist. I will continue to report with complete independence and ask the tough questions, the same way I have done for the last 30 years.
