LatinaLista — This morning, it was revealed that Univision, the nation’s largest supplier of Spanish-language imported programming, got slapped with a record $24 million fine from the Federal Communications Commission. It seems that Univision was lacking when it came to educational programming for children. It’s no surprise since the network’s moneymakers are the Mexican-made telenovelas. […]

LatinaLista — “It’s my fault. I make him mad.” I don’t know how many times I’ve heard or read that sentence from young Latinas trying to justify the reason why their novios (boyfriends) gave them a black eye.
