FNC Launches Fox News Latino (website only)
MediaBistro.com - "TV Newser" ^ | October 14, 2010 | Molly Stark Dean

Posted on 10/19/2010 11:22:30 PM PDT by nutmeg

FNC launched Fox News Latino, a new website, whilst honoring the 2010 Ailes Apprentice Program graduates Tuesday night at the Water Club in Manhattan. Fox News CEO/chair and founder of the program, Roger Ailes hosted the dinner...

-snip-

The night was also the kick-off of Fox News Latino, an English-language website for the rapidly growing Hispanic population in the U.S. Will the website one day turn into a TV channel, like CNN en Espanol? “That’s nowhere in sight,” manager Francisco Cortes told The Miami Herald. “Though, trust me, it’s in the back of my mind.” Cortes himself is a graduate of the Ailes Apprentice Program.

In my opinion, it's just more pandering to a group steadfastly refusing to assimilate and embrace American culture and language. Univision, Telemundo, Estrella, Galavision, Azteca and Telefutura already pollute the television landscape and their "news" programs parrot the LaRaza party line.

Et tu, Rupert?

‘Fox News Latino- an English language website’. I’m confused.

...Fox News Latino, an English-language website...

A smattering of English is on the site but below the fold, it's all in Spanish. I repeat -- it's pandering.

We speak English and that's for all of America.

I should have waited for your post. Next it will be Fox News Ghetto. I guess they could get Snerdley as commentator.

I think this is great.

I have a friend I met in the eighties who was born in Mexico and became an American citizen legally. We were watching TV at his place, and Ronald Reagan began a press conference. My friend watched Reagan so intently that when his wife came in to ask him if he wanted a beer, he shushed her and waved his hands to let her know he did not want to be disturbed while he was listening to the President. I asked her later about that and she said that he did that all the time, whenever Ronald Reagan was on TV.

When people realize that they have a personal stake in their own liberty, they always vote accordingly.

I wish FOX the best and hope that they are very successful.

I am not being snarky or deliberately obtuse with this question:

When your friend of Mexican origin watched President Reagan was it televised in English or on of the Spanish-language outlets?

Ping.

This topic is of possible interest in the wake of the "Futbol Americano" thread a few weeks ago.

Yep, so far my knee-jerk reaction is that this could be a good thing... the site is mostly in the English language from what I've seen so far.

If there had been a Spanish language Fox News Channel in existence the last 10 or 15 years, Obama would not be president today.

TV comes with multi language closed captioning nowadays.

It most certainly does and is strictly a one way street. The English-language facilities make the effort to provide SAP and CC content in Spanish.

In contrast, it doesn't happen in the other direction. Even movies that were produced in English on Telefutura (to cite one example) are dubbed into Spanish with CC in Spanish. But an English language service (SAP or CC)?

Nada!

I think you may be right. This Fox News Latino website could be a good thing. Maybe if it's successful, FNC will launch a Latino Fox News Channel TV network.

Hmmm... maybe a Latino Rush Limbaugh as well? ;-)

If there wasn't a need for Spanish language television or radio in America, Obama would not be president today. Our crime rate would not be what it is. Our hospitals wouldn't be broke. Our school systems wouldn't be in such a state of chaos with dual-language services. And so on...

Multiculturism is pandering.

And one more item to the less-than-exhaustive list. Maybe we'd not have to press 1 for English.

I don't mind the existence of Univision or Telemundo. If I was living in another country, I'd enjoy an English language channel or two on my TV set.

What's disgusting about Univision and Telemundo is that they spew racist anti-Republican propaganda 24/7 with absolutely no sense of fairness or balance. Neither network even bothered to carry the GOP presidential convention in 2008.

He watched his favorite President in English on a regular American station. He is an engineer and also has his own successful business.

There is a Spanish language TV station called "Immigrante TV" which only covers the illegal side of the debate. And it is on 24-7. Liberty-loving non-English-speakers deserve to hear the truth, and if Roger Ailes wants to make a run at it I am all for it.

I don't mind the existence of Univision or Telemundo. If I was living in another country, I'd enjoy an English language channel or two on my TV set.

Just to ensure that I'm not mistaken in any way, I don't advocate rescinding the license of Telemundo, Univision or any of the others. Nor am I in favor of content control by the FCC wherein English is mandated for broadcast services.

What piques my interest in this tread and galls me is that Univision and the others are able to do so well in an otherwise down economy for advertising-driven media. Why? So much of their target audience (mostly Mexicans here in Texas) cling to their old culture, refusing to embrace the ways and language of the country that gives so much opportunity.

QLA noted that having some English-language choices on television in another country is enjoyable. I agree 100%. When I was recently in Brazil, it was great to watch college football on ESPN. However if I were to become a Brazilian citizen, I'd make every effort to learn Portuguese and even develop an affinity for soccer. In short, I'd do my best to assimilate.

I think a case can be argued that Univision and now the nascent Fox effort are among those things that retard assimilation.

“Murdoch, Saudi prince team up to launch ‘Arabic Fox News’”

By Daniel Tencer
Friday, July 9th, 2010 — 5:06 pm

SNIPPET: “The new channel, based in Saudi Arabia, “will focus on development in Saudi Arabia and the Arab world on the political, economic and social fronts,” Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the world’s 19th-wealthiest person according to Forbes, said in a statement.

The network will be competing with the two principal international Arabic news services, Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya, and “is going to become an addition and an alternative for viewers,” bin Talal said.”

One of my ancestors was a German immigrant in the 1830’s. He founded and edited a German language newspaper in America. He was very patriotic and was even a delegate to the Republican Convention in 1856. He was a big advocate of learning the English language and assimilating with American culture. But it was easier to express these views to the German-American community by writing in German.

I no longer have children anywhere near school age, so I'm pretty much out of the loop on this. What are you thoughts about young people learning English? I wonder if your immigrant ancestor from Germany still spoke any German to his children?

There's one theory that total immersion is most effective and others maintain that bi-lingual education produces good results.

This thread does make me recall the scene from the classic Casablanca where the German couple at Rick's is about to depart for America.

My general sense is that the whole family pretty much spoke German at home until the outbreak of World War I made it wildly unfashionable.

this may be a good thing. Spanish TV news in the US is very biased against the USA. The the American rescuers of the miners or even their part in it wasnt even covered.
Local SA coverage did.

You have to start somewhere.

I’d rather Fox deliver programming for Spanish speakers than the DNC.

Mexicans are very family oriented and, I think, we have a chance of making inroads. This is a start. Yes, they have to learn English too.

In fact, Jerry Brown’s slam about Meg Whitman’s maid was not meant to sway Caucasians, it was to thwart her successful outreach to hispanics. It can only help.

it's called ‘business” i.e. capitalism!

Giving Latinos a view of fair & Balanced news is a good thing.

Like it or not..to get a job in the future you will be at an advantage to speak Spanish..

p.s. I loved the video of Sarah-Just-Wanna-Throwup on stage with MOOSHELE at the Blumenthal event. Add her to the "no-watch" list. Actually, she was there already - another talentless windbag.

Not necessarily. All hispanics aren’t Mexican illegals. My elderly Puerto Rican mother-in-law loves Rush. Listens to right wing talk radio all day long. She is computer literate. She loves watching her novellas and would probably enjoy visiting the Fox News Latino website. Now she’s what I call a “wise latina”.

I think a case can be argued that Univision and now the nascent Fox effort are among those things that retard assimilation.

How do you know that all of the people who watch Univision can not speak English? I could list many examples that can refute your assumption, but I will just give you this one:

I was taking German at a community college and met a gal who had a slight Spanish accent. As I got to know her, I found out that she was from Chile and that her husband was the local DFW Telemundo weatherman. They were newlyweds and she could not work, because of the green card thing, so she was taking some college classes to bid away her time. Back in Chile, she was a journalist at the largest newspaper in the country.

What blew me away was the fact that she was a native Spanish speaker taking a German class, where English was the main language spoken. So while I was trying to handle just German which is in itself difficult, she was doing a great job conversing in two languages known to be difficult for non-native speakers.

A FOX-Spanish language news program would be a very healthy addition to the news choices they have right now.
