I thought Sabado Gigante was live, or at least live-ish. I only see it when I go to my favorite Mexican place, you know, the sort run by Mexicans for Mexicans.

...I don't see the "fail" here.

This can't be any worse than allowing the heinous levels of media consolidation.

Also, don't knock Sabado Gigante - Kreutzberger never missed hosting a show for decades.  The man is dedicated to entertaining the hell out of Latin America.

He also went full-bore in bringing out the Hispanic community in the U.S. to help with the Haitian earthquake relief effort.

Ya, 'SCARY SPANISH SHOWS!!' is kinda a nonstarter for me, but then I'm in Texas, where you're legally required to be half a peso from a mexican citizenship anyway (couldn't think of something more racist there).

But can ANYTHING be worse than the combination of Sify, A+E, and so on, showing 'reallity' TV shows 24x7? What have Americans done with our television? Mostly we farking watch people make each other miserable in reallity TV shows like Idol or Survivor, or we watch farking Honey Boo Boo.

Let's give some non-US people a chance. They probably can't must the ability to be such abject miserable failures.

I would plow the tacos of the 'ladies' (using that term loosely) on Sabado Gigante with aplomb.

Why are you using that term loosely? Do you suspect they may not actually be women?

Oh, and I really don't get why this is a big deal. Lots of foreign owned corporations here already, may as well let them have their own cable channels too. Maybe Best Korea will start an English language cable news network to spread the glory of Son of Dear Leader. Or maybe Iran could do something like that. I don't see why not, we already get inundated with an endless amount of corporate propaganda, why not foreign governments too?

I would love a Foreign Propaganda digital package.  For $3/month, you could get RT, Irianian State TV, a DRPK channel, etc.

It would be worth a laugh.

As badly as American companies have farked up TV, does this really matter?

This ruling is designed to increase the value of the US-owned companies.  Now, by opening the market to more foreign ownership, they can increase the competition to bid up the price before they sell.

All of this. Where's the fail here? 99% of the channels are for white-bread Amerca, and Latinos are going to be half the population in a lot of states, soon. People in Texas just don't care or learn to deal with it. My late husbund took to Latino hip hop after watching it many times at our local Mexican taco place, even though he didn't speak Spanish.

Every restaurant in America -- Indian, Italian, Tex-Mex-Korean-BBQ-fusion ... all have Mexican cooks in the kitchen. Mexicans feed America. So the next time you're at your American steakhouse having American porterhouse with American whiskey ... you're eating Mexican. :)

None of this has to do with cable.  It's actual, physical TV stations.

That said, I'm willing to bet that nearly every good show you can think of was developed in the US.
