Too Bad, Hombres

Wapo;

The Spanish-language media giant Univision Communications will lay off almost 6 percent of its workforce -- between 200 and 250 people -- after it slipped into the red last quarter, the company announced Wednesday.

The layoffs, along with a planned restructuring, "are in response to difficult times, challenging times," Isaac Lee, Univision's digital, entertainment and news chief, told The Washington Post in his first public comments on the moves. "We need to position ourselves for the future."

Flashback!

Just when they thought they had the world by the balls ... they find out the world has them by the balls. Not a smart to bet against the world.

How many viewers will they have when everybody goes back to Mexico?

How many viewers will they have when they all go back to Mexico? By the way, is there some reason that CAPCHA is using hispanic words for this? (CUERVAVACA} Kate, you need to get a handle on your stealth censors.

I am pretty sure Victor Davis Hanson get paid well for everything he writes. Likewise Richard Fernandez. All they do is careful research, write about actual events in the real world, and give it accurate historical context. Whatever Univision does, pretty clear people know it's not eorth buying. Thomas Sowell isn't filing for bankruptcy either... Could it be that George Ramos guy is sinking their ship with whatever it is that propagandists do instead of news?

Let's look at their business model.
Competition to be the best Pravda:
ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR, NYT, BBC, PBS, CNN, Al Jazeera, Vice, Reuters, AP, Washington Times, HuffPo, Snopes, Atlantic, ... can't even remember them all. Let's ballpark it at 65 million competitors for the same audience.
Competition to do real news:
Fox, Breitbart, one or two others. Let's ballpark their number at a few dozen, worldwide.
Basically, anything anyone can get from Univision is available from millions of other vendors. I can see how they would have trouble differentiating themselves even fron SNL, or ESPN, who say all the exact same words at the exact same time to the exact same target audience. I guess trying to sell content to people who expect everything to be free isn't a great business model.




Watching for them to beg the government for other peoples money.

I used to be able to head to deadspin.com for some pretty decent sports stuff, gossipy and snarky, the way I like it. You couldn't even tell it was Gawker-owned some days. Then...it went full Gawker. Then, Gawker went full bankrupt. Then it was sold to Univision, and now its completely useless. I might have to head over just to see how scared the twerps are now.

Damn ! Just when I was going to change my name from Geraldo ... to ... Jorge!

Nooooooo! I use their Spanish programming to hone my Spanish language skills, and the telenovelas are a blast. In the first twenty minutes of watching them I saw one guy save his father in law by giving him a life-saving blood transfusion, a cat fight in a women's prison amongst inmates with absolutely impeccable hair and makeup, and two guys short for no discernible reason whatsoever. It's waaaaay better than the CBC!

j@DrD: "the telenovelas are a blast."

You are so right. I spent the winter of 2013 (or 2014, I forget) in Mexico and rarely missed an episode of "La Familia Con Suerte". Funny, quirky show. The thing about these telenovelas is that they end, unlike those in the U.S. which go on for 20-30 years with new actors replacing the old.

I only watch it for the weather. (Check out Yanet Garcia)--I promise every heterosexual male that you will not be disappointed.

I looked for pictures of her. Something must be wrong with my glasses--they kept fogging up!

History has a habit of repeating itself,,,101 years ago George Patton cut the first notch on his 38 in Mexico. Mexico's ex-President FOX is threatening the Trump admin.. more action to follow

"Patton's first real exposure to battle occurred when he served as a member of legendary General John J. Pershing's staff during the expedition to Mexico. In 1915, Patton was sent to Fort Bliss along the Mexican border where he led routine cavalry patrols. A year later, he accompanied Pershing as an aide on his expedition against Francisco "Pancho" Villa into Mexico. Patton gained recognition from the press for his attacks on several of Villa’s men."
