Target audience biased?

  • IMHO the "Target audience" sections is a bit biased and unimportant. It is good to have the criticisms, but I find pointless to cite Emilio Azcarraga's unfortunate declarations.

This article was written by televisa employees, they do not mention the silence and complicity pact of the company founders with President Echeverria during the 1968 massacre . More recently televisa keeps a large group of lawyers in the mexican congress, these lawyers bribe mexican congressmen to keep televisa as media monopoly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aldevaran (talkcontribs) 21:25, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

I don't agree, but I'm not in the mood for a fight, and certainly not over Televisa. I'll leave the two offending paragraphs here for future reference. Hajor 21:35, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

Harsh criticisms are frequently leveled at Televisa for its apparent glorification of the banal and its unsophisticated programming. Such impressions are indeed borne out by the regular Televisa diet of celebrity gossip, brash variety shows, sport, repetitive comedy series in which the same actors – year in, year out – dress up as children and go through the same tired old comedy routines, and, of course, the morning-noon-and-night serving-up of telenovelas.
In response to these accusations, company president Emilio Azcárraga explained: "Mexico is a country where the working class is screwed [Spanish: una clase modesta muy jodida] and is going to remain screwed... One obligation of television is to bring some fun to those people and to separate them from their sad realities and difficult future" (quoted here by Carlos Monsiváis). Again, on 3 March 1997, in his last public appearance before his death, Azcárraga elaborated on his company's target audience: "We can't avoid the very wealthy, but really, they don't interest us much. Our programming has always been and always will be for the popular classes."
Indeed, the financially more comfortable and better educated sectors of the Mexican population largely ignore Televisa's domestic programming, preferring to watch foreign programs over cable or satellite tv systems – traditionally those originating from the U.S. but, increasingly, programming from other parts of Latin America and Europe.
  • I agree with the first comment, it is very unimportant to have this section when the article to begin with is short and in need of cleaning up as is stated. A new, longer and more complete article needs to be created. -Instinkt 01:49 24 July 2005 (UTC)
  • I'll try to translate the article in the Spanish wikipedia this weekend, since it is more complete --Equinoxe 03:37, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

What is true, is that Televisa has supported the PRI when it was the ruling party in Mexico, and they had controlled the news much like some dictatorial governments.

Ponte la Verde

There is a current slogan the network is using in promoting the national team, el Tri, for the World Cup 2006 where the "Green" is put on by citizens. John wesley 10:47, 31 May 2006 (UTC) "Ponte , ponte la verde con televisa" "Ponganse la verde..........VAMOS MUCHACHOS!!!!!!!!!


telenovelas vs. soap operas The article describes 'soap operas that usually run for only one season'. I think they are referring to telenovelas (where this is the rule), not soap operas. --Guyjin 19:21, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

One small question

Are there any differences between the Mexican Galavision and Univision? Last I checked, Univision programming was avaliable in Mexico via Televisa Networks. -Daniel Blanchette 14:33, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Comments

Sorry, Im not a wiki editor so Im gonna leave this for someone else to do, but this Televisa article is rife with errors. Most important being that Televisa is certainly not the largest TV station in the world and Emilio Azcarraga Jean was not indicted by the NYSE, which doesnt indict anyone since its a stock exchange. Carlos Salinas, TV Azteca head, was indicted by the SEC.

First of all, TV Azteca's head is not Carlos Salinas, it is Ricardo Salinas Pliego. Secondly, you are right about the other two counts, they are unsourced claims. I'll delete them. Finally, please sign your comments. Hari Seldon 01:25, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

date of foundation

An unsigned user recently changed the date of foundation from 1955 to 1950. I've changed it back to 1955 per the article, but the chronology here http://www.ketupa.net/televisa2.htm suggests 1952 might be a better date. Any opinions? Barnabypage 13:08, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Criticism or Controversy section needed.

It's necessary to add a Controversy section on the english article, as Televisa has involved in certain cases of media bias, political influences and television monopoly.

Controversy: Televisa–Peña Nieto collusion

Here's some info from The Guardian on the possible collusion between Televisa and Enrique Peña Nieto. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

Here's from La Jornada ([8]); Terra Networks ([9]); El Economista ([10]); TeleSur ([11]); Latin American Herald Tribune ([12])

Since there are reliable sources, this should be included in the Controversy section. ComputerJA (talk) 02:56, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
