Why Not Latin America's FOX NEWS?

heh....

I guess they didn't mention FOX because of how many viewers they have compared to CNN. If they really want any competition at all, you have to start with CNN, right? ;)

Maybe I am taking this all wrong...but why mention CNN if your not going to 'compete' with them. FOX is Number 1...so are they trying to become Number 2?

This quote fits right in: "2nd is just the first loser."

CARACAS, Venezuela - Loose computer cables, laptops and a video camera fill a cramped hotel room where a team of journalists are laying the groundwork for a new television network that hopes to be the CNN of Latin America.

With financial backing from Venezuela's government, the Telesur network is scheduled to begin transmitting by satellite 24 hours a day within three or four months, offering news and opinion shows from a South American perspective.

"We aren't going to compete with CNN. We're simply going to give the public it's own information alternative," Aharonian said. "This is the first time that we're going to be able to see ourselves through our own eyes."
