Hispanic Corporate Game

Latino politicians Henry Cisneros and Bill Richardson have been chosen to publicly support the merger of the largest Hispanic TV corporation, Univision, with the largest Hispanic radio corporation, Hispanic Broadcasting Corp. What a sad mix of bedfellows.

These Latino leaders are following the trend of media corporations to merge and control the voice of our community. This deal needs FCC approval, so write and say no to this deal. The FCC may be receptive at this time, because last month their "let's give even more media to the coporations" spree was stopped by congress. The e-mail address is: fccinfo@fcc.gov

The Houston Chronicle has an article, written by the Washington Post, about the political voice-controlling aspect of this deal.
Univision CEO, Jerrold Perenchio, is among an elite club of "pioneers" who have raised at least $100,000 for Bush's 2004 re-election campaign, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a campaign finance watchdog group. "
