The buyer is a newly formed company called “Latino Media Network” linked to several far-left radicals, including Soros himself. Network executives said it aims to reach major markets nationwide – Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Chicago, Dallas, San Antonio, McAllen, Fresno, Las Vegas and Miami – to combat “misinformation and misinformation” in Spanish.
In addition to Soros ties, the network is led by Stephanie Valencia, a former Obama outreach director, and Jess Morales Rocketto, a pro-immigration left-wing activist.
