A George Soros-backed group of predominantly Hispanic investors has purchased 18 Spanish-language radio stations in 10 cities for $60 million.

The Latino Media Network is led by Obama administration official Stephanie Valencia and received financing from Lakestar Finance LLC, an investment firm associated with liberal billionaire George Soros.

“We believe in the power and reach of radio and it remains a main source of media for a significant number of our community,” Jess Morales Rocketto, a veteran of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns, said in a statement. “We hope to create relevant content for radio and other audio platforms with content that our community can trust and rely on.”

One of the stations included in the deal is Radio Mambi, a conservative talk radio station in Miami, Florida, that Democrats have long accused of spreading “ misinformation ” in the Hispanic community.

“In the 2020 election, we saw this — really a compelling rightward shift among the Latino electorate and in South Florida,” Huffington Post reporter Lautaro Grinspan recently told NPR. “And it lends credence to the notion that Spanish-language misinformation is playing a role in shaping folks' political perceptions.”

But is “misinformation” really to blame for the recent rightward drift of Hispanics? Or are more and more Hispanics realizing that the Democratic Party simply doesn’t share their values.

Or maybe Hispanics are becoming exposed to the truth.

Democrats needed a Misinformation Department to cover their own misinformation activities. That did not work, so now they are panicked.

Time to divert attention to guns, abortion, and gender issues. The more confusing they can make gender, the more smoke they can generate to divert and hide their incompetence on the economy, national security, border, crime, etc.

I expect this to be a highly effective investment. There won't be a "Red Wave" come November, but that is secondary.

The 18 stations are in Los Angeles, New York City, Miami, Houston, Chicago, Dallas, San Antonio, McAllen, Fresno and Las Vegas. The group said the stations are mostly broadcasting sports, entertainment and music programming.

The group said the radio stations they plan to purchase will reach one-third of Latinos in the U.S., about 20 million people.

LA, NYC, Chicago, Fresno will make little difference in those blue states. Houston and Dallas are probably blue but it could help them a House seat or two. San Antonio’s io....on the border.....gonna be bright red. McAllen and Vegas.......toss up.
