    Network Gives Hillary Clinton Direct Access to Hispanic Americans

    Is the largest Spanish-language network boosting a likely candidate two years removed from the 2016 presidential election? It’s certainly looking that way, and the media are turning a blind eye.

    According to reports, possible presidential aspirant and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is entering into a partnership with Univision—the largest Spanish-language news network in America, reaching nearly every U.S. Hispanic television household—to promote a childhood development initiative.

    It is hard to dismiss this as coincidental, given the increasing clout of the Hispanic electorate (every month, 50,000 Hispanics turn 18 and news that there are Univision executives partial to a Hillary Clinton presidency. Progressive commentator Raul Reyes, a member of USA Today’s Board of Contributors, reports:

    Consider that one of the owners of Univision, Haim Saban, is a major Clinton donor and backer who told the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth that, “Seeing her in the White House is a big dream of mine.”

    If that’s not the definition of media bias, I’m not sure what is.

    Reyes does well to shine a spotlight on this largely unreported story, noting that this deal would likely draw a lot more outrage and scrutiny if this was being done by one of the other major mainstream media networks. He reminds us: “Remember that just last year, CNN had planned a documentary and NBC a mini-series docudrama featuring Hillary Clinton. But after widespread criticism, both networks cancelled their plans.”

    And at a time when press freedom is under attack worldwide and the U.S. istumbling in the latest global press freedom index, it’s especially important to hold our media outlets accountable when they are providing an outlet to a possible presidential aspirant to connect with the fastest-growing and youngest demographic in the United States for a multi-year partnership.

    Reyes has it right: “The mainstream press should wake up to a story that lies in plain view: The Univision/Clinton ties deserve careful, thorough scrutiny.”

    Too Small To Fail joins with Univision to launch “Pequeños y Valiosos” (Young and Valuable)

    Press Release

    Too Small To Fail, a joint initiative of the Clinton Foundation and Next Generation, joins with Univision to launch Early Childhood Development Program “Pequeños y Valiosos” (Young and Valuable)

    New York — On Tuesday, February 4, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Univision Communications Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer Randy Falco will launch a partnership between Univision and Too Small to Fail, a joint initiative of Next Generation and the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

    The event will mark the beginning of a multi-year partnership with Univision Communications Inc., the leading media company serving Hispanic America, as part of the Company’s Univision Contigo (Univision With You) empowerment efforts. Building upon Univision’s award-winning education initiative and Too Small to Fail’smission to help parents and businesses take meaningful actions to improve the health and well-being of children ages zero to five, the partnership, branded in Spanish as “Pequeños y Valiosos,” will deliver expert research, commentary and information across Univision platforms.
    As indicated in Too Small to Fail’s strategic roadmap, early health and learning directly impacts an individual’s long-term productivity and success. The more parents speak with their children, the faster their children’s vocabularies grow, laying the groundwork for future academic success. “Pequeños y Valiosos” will direct its efforts at Hispanic parents and other caregivers of children ages zero to five, encouraging them to talk, read, and sing with their children in order to develop their language and vocabulary skills.

    “At Univision we are proud to work with parents and children to help our community succeed. We invest in initiatives and partnerships that provide them access to the resources and information they need in this regard,” said Randy Falco, president & CEO of Univision Communications Inc. “As our education initiative marks its fourth year, the partnership with Next Generation, the Clinton Foundation, and many other education organizations, will help us amplify our commitment by delivering the best information possible about early childhood development to the Hispanic community.”

    The partners also launched a new feature section on Univision’s

    website,, which offers factsheets, tips and special content for Spanish-speaking parents provided by Too Small to Fail’s partner organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, First Book, the National Council of La Raza, the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), Sesame Workshop, and Zero to Three. Additionally, as part of “Pequeños y Valiosos”, Univision Contigo, Too Small to Fail and their partner organizations will make available thousands of books and other informational materials to families across the country at special events organized by Univision’s local affiliate stations, the first of which is scheduled for Saturday, February 22, in Austin, Texas.

    Univision Contigo is inviting parents to take a pledge to dedicate uninterrupted time every day to interacting with their children on its website, Barbara Bermudo, award-winning journalist and anchor for Univision’s award winning newsmagazine “Primer Impacto” (First Impact), will serve as a national spokesperson for the partnership.

    “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Univision to share the newest science about early childhood with Hispanic families,” said Jim Steyer, board chair and co-founder of Next Generation.

    Patti Miller, director of Too Small to Fail for the Clinton Foundation, added: “Hispanics represent the fastest growing population in the United States, and the decisions parents and caregivers make today will influence their children’s futures and the future of our country for years to come.”

    The partnership will launch with a “roadblock” of special programming promoting early learning across Univision Network’s programs, including segments on Hispanic America’s top morning show “Despierta América” (Wake Up America), the leading Spanish-language daily newsmagazine “Primer Impacto” (First Impact), on Univision’s nightly evening news “Noticiero Univision,” as well as in local news across Univision affiliates and on Dr. Isabel’s national radio program on Univision Radio’s AM network Univision America. Following the launch, special programming focused on early education and learning, as well as Univision Contigo public service announcements featuring Univision personalities, will be introduced across Univision’s networks and affiliate stations.
