Disney and Univision Launching Miami-Based Cable News Network

CNN, MSNBC and Fox News are about to get some Miami-based competition backed by one of the world's largest media conglomerates.

Disney and Univision announced this morning that they are set to launch a 24-hour news network sometime in the next year, and the channel's operation will be headquartered in Miami. The network will broadcast in English, but will target the Hispanic market.

The network will be a 50-50 joint operation between Disney's ABC News division and Univision. The network's name has not been announced.

Online content will debut this summer, and the cable channel's full launch is expected in early 2013.

Reports ABC News:
Editorial coverage will focus on the issues most relevant for U.S. Hispanics, including the economy, jobs, health care, immigration, education, politics, entertainment, health and wellness and more.

"This exciting joint venture represents the latest example of our long-term strategy to broaden the reach of ABC," Anne Sweeney, president of the Disney-ABC Television Group, said in a statement. "Our powerful premier news brand, combined with the world's leading Hispanic media company, will create the nation's first news and lifestyle channel targeted to this quickly expanding and important community."
The announcement comes as Univision is expanding its new programing, and the New York Times reports the shared resources between the two companies may allow ABC News to cut some costs. The channel's formation also reflects changing trends in the way many Hispanics get their media, as more and more second- and third-generation Hispanics increasingly tend to watch English-language television.

Univision's corporate headquarters are based in New York, but its productions facilities are based in Doral. It's likely that the channel will broadcast from those studios.

In a very exclusive school where just millionaires and politicians' sons and daughters may assist, the teacher asks her important students:


- OK boys and girls, lets conjugate the verb steal. Emilito, you first.

- Yes madam:

* I get a tax credit.

* You find tax avoidance paths.

* We buy Mega-yachts.

* They approve a new tax law.

* You forgive my debt.

* And everybody is f*k up.

The honest personalities Monsignor William Lynn, Joseph Gallagher, Mark Gaspar, Roger Mahony, Nicolás Aguilar, Jean Succar Kuri, Kamel Nacif Borge, Monsignor Antonio Chedraui, Marcos & Sharon Fastlicht, Emilio Azcarraga Jean & Nadine Jean, attend a UNICEF gala dinner at Miami.


So the audience, the journalist Lydia Cacho delivers her inspirational speech:


- Today we meet here to support UNICEF, which is the International Organization that take care of the world's children. That little beings so sweet, inocent, beautiful, charming, ...


- Shut up already, because I'm getting horny.

“Sin proponérselo, la periodista Lydia Cacho libeiro ha puesto al descubierto no sólo una red internacional de pederastas, sino todo un cártel de narcotraficantes de dimensiones globales, en la que participarían Kamel Nacif Borge y Antonio CHEDRAUI Tanús, arzobispo de la Iglesia Ortodoxa en México, y quien fue agente de la KGB, dijo ayer Alfredo Jalife Rahme, analista y colaborador de La Jornada en una entrevista que concedió a la periodista Carmen Aristegui en su noticiario radiofónico Hoy por Hoy, que se transmite por W Radio.”


“Jalife dijo que la liga de Kamel Nacif con el narcotráfico se daría a través de su cuñado, Elías Bechelani Bachur, quien “es el presidente del Partido Popular Sirio, que en México es aliado de Antonio CHEDRAUI Tanús, pero viene lo mejor, Carmen: el hermano de este Elías Bechelani Bachur, Badía Bechelani Bachur, era el presidente del Centro Libanés en Guadalajara y cuñado de Tomás Colsa Mcgregor, ¿te dice algo ese nombre?”

Republicans and Media Millionaries were going to have a business meeting at Miami when they saw 2 suitcases with some 100 USD bills showing out of them. All the honest men there ran with no hesitation in order to own the luggage while screeming "Its mine, its mine". After some minutes fighting, they made a deal. Who knows how much cash was in the baggage and what it will be used for, could keep it.

The firts try was for Kyle Foggo and Brent Wilkes:

- The suitcases have 12 million USD and we will spend it renting an Scotish Castle.

Then it was Felipe Sixto's turn:

- They have 600 thousand USD to buy some cigarrs from Cuba.

Finally it was turn for Rupert Murdoch and Emilio Azcarraga Jean:

- Just 2 suitcases? They were 230 suitcases with 1 million USD each, to pay SKY and Televisa Taxes.

LETTER TO SANTA CLAUS

Emilito Azcarraga Fastlicht was writing a letter to Santa, lying next to the tree and the Virgin Mary's and the Child Jesus' figures:

- Dear Santa Claus, this year I have been a very good kid and I want a bike as Christmas present.

But when Emilito was putting the letter in the Christmas stocking, the Virgin Mary's gaze made him hesitate. So he shredded the letter and wrote it again.

- Dear Santa, this year I have not been a good kid but I promise I will endeavour to be a good boy next year. If possible I would like a bike as Christmas present.

But when Emilito was putting the letter in the Christmas stocking, the Virgin Mary's gaze made him hesitate once again and he shredded the letter one more time. Then he took the Virgin Mary's and Child Jesus' figures and put them inside a dirty and dark trunk:

- Listen to me very carefully fool old man, if you want to see again the Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus, bring me a fully equipped mountain bike and put it next to the stupid tree.
