Here’s The Latest On The Beef Between Univision And Charter Spectrum

Early Wednesday morning, customers of Charter Spectrum cable found that they no longer had access to any Univision networks. Networks including Univision, Unimás, Galavisión, Univision Deportes and El Rey seemed to have just vanished.



The blackout, which lasted 36 hours and affected 2.5 million Latino homes throughout the nation, was not a mistake. It happened because of money. Specifically, how much money Charter Spectrum should be paying Univision in carriage fees.



The blackout ended due to a ruling by New York Superior Court Justice Salianna Scarpulla. A Charter Spectrum spokesperson said in a statement, “Today, the Supreme Court for the state of New York granted Charter a temporary restraining order, meaning that Univision programming will be returned to our customers.”



Univision released their own statement, which reads:


“A judge who was temporarily assigned to our case today said that she planned to issue an order that Univision’s networks and stations had to be restored on Charter Spectrum for 7 days. This order only lasts until February 9, when the judge permanently assigned to the litigation is back in court. For the 7-day period that it is receiving Univision’s services, Charter Spectrum will be required to post a bond covering the actual market value of Univision’s programming, rather than the inadequate rates that Charter Spectrum has been paying. Univision remains ready and willing to meet at any time with Charter Spectrum to engage in comprehensive, good-faith negotiations for the long-term carriage of our stations and networks. To date, Charter Spectrum has steadfastly refused to engage in such negotiations.”



The carriage fee dispute between the two companies has been going on for quite some time. Six months ago, Univision filed a suit against Charter Spectrum for breach of contract over carrier fees. Univision explained in a statement:



“Charter insists that the contract Univision had with Time Warner Cable is controlling, rather than its own contract with Univision. Charter bases this argument on the preposterous theory that as a result of the merger, Time Warner Cable, rather than Charter, is managing all these cable systems. But everyone knows that is not true: the longstanding CEO and the executive team of Charter, as well as its pre-existing board of directors, now manage and control all of the cable systems.”



So even though Charter Spectrum acquired Time Warner Cable, they wanted to keep the deal that TWC had negotiated with Univision because it’s a better deal, but Univision was like, “not so fast, we didn’t make that deal with you.”



All this behind-the-scenes bickering is what led to the blackout. Univision demanded that Charter Spectrum stop broadcasting their networks, and that’s why on February 1, there was a whole mess of confused customers staring at a blue screen.



Hopefully, Univision and Charter Spectrum will find a way to work together because Univision is the country’s largest Spanish-language media company, which means many Spanish speakers depend on it as a news source. Father Richard Estrada of Church of the Epiphany in Lincoln Heights told the Los Angeles Times, “People are afraid and nervous of what [President] Trump will do next. A lack of access to news and information will only make things worse. It makes you wonder, ‘What’s next? What will they take away next?’”

Kellyanne Conway Now Facing Additional Investigation After Nude Photos Of Her Underaged Daughter Were Posted From Her Twitter Account

Kellyanne Conway Now Facing Additional Investigation After Nude Photos Of Her Underaged Daughter Were Posted From Her Twitter Account

Updated January 27, 2021.

Last summer Claudia Conway, Kellyanne Conway’s daughter, gained national attention when she began to express her anti-Trump views on the social platform TikTok. At the start, it became clear that despite her parents’ high profile political positions Claudia was going to speak her mind and be honest about her thoughts on the now-former- American president. In her videos, Claudia criticized Trump for his policies and divisive nature, slammed her mother for her part in supporting him and spoke openly about the toxic nature of her own home.

Now, Claudia is coming to the surface again, this time to lambast her mother for her apparent abuse.

Last week, it was revealed was that Kellyanne Conway was under a police investigation after Claudia claimed she was being abused by the former campaign manager to Donald Trump.

According to OK!, a member of the Alpine Police Department claimed that officers responded to the Conway’s household lat Wednesday, January 20, in response to a “juvenile matter.” The issue is apparently now under investigation after a third party (not Claudia) reported an incident.

In a video posted to TikTok last week, Claudia could be seen telling officers that she felt unsafe. Last week, Claudia quickly went viral after posting videos of a woman she claimed to be her mother verbally and physically abusing her.

At one point, the person off-camera purported to be Kellyanne Conway screams calls Claudia an “ungrateful b**tch” and later says “You’re lucky your mom’s pro-life.”

The ex-counselor to the disgraced former president is now being accused of posting a topless picture of Claudia on Twitter.

According to captures posted by users on social media, the topless photos were shared from Conway’s account, @KellyannePolls on Twitter’s Fleet. The image was eventually taken down but not before Twitter users took screenshots. According to Variety, “On TikTok, Claudia Conway on Monday posted videos confirming that the picture was authentic; those have since been deleted from her TikTok account but Twitter users reposted copies of the videos. In the videos, a visibly upset Claudia Conway speculated that her mother may have accidentally posted the image.”

“I’m assuming my mom took a picture of it to use against me one day and then somebody hacked her or something,” Conway wrote about the post. “I’m literally at a loss for words. If you see it, report it.”

In a post to TikTok, Claudia Conway claimed that “nobody would ever have any photo like that, ever. So, Kellyanne, you’re going to fucking jail.”

In several updates posted to TikTok videos on Tuesday morning, Claudia Conway asked users to “stop calling authorities” and announced that she and her mother are now “taking a break from social media.”

“I know that my mom would never, ever post anything to hurt me like that intentionally, and I do believe she was hacked,” Claudia Conway said in one of the videos posted to TikTok.

Claudia’s TikTok profile led her parents to attempt to ban her from social media.

Claudia’s hiatus from social media did not last long. Claudia is famous for trolling her parents on social media. Her level of trolling her parents, Kellyanne and George, outraged Kellyanne to the point of forcibly taking Claudia’s phone in a video.

In July, the daughter of Donald Trump’s right-hand man and personal “alternative fact-checker” (Kellyanne Conway) made headlines when journalists caught wind of her anti-Trump and pro-BLM TikTok videos. Now, Kellyanne’s daughter, Claudia, is speaking up again this time about her parents.

Claudia’s decision to speak out once again comes at the hands of her father’s latest tweet.

Only July 3, Conway’s father George spoke out in response to recent interviews with his daughter writing: “To journalists: @kellyannepolls and I do not consent to any communications between you and any of our minor children, including our daughter Claudia. So desist. Thank you.”

In a series of tweets that have now been deleted Claudia responded to her father “You’re just mad that I’m finally getting my voice heard. Sorry your marriage failed” according to Complex.

Claudia reportedly posted a series of tweets in response to accusations that she was angry. “Bahah I’m not angry, I’m chillin, I’m just over both of my parents trying to silence me” Claudia wrote in one of the now-deleted tweets and continuing by saying “my parents, particularly my mother, are trying to silence me by getting me to delete my social media. haha.”

At the time Claudia opened up about her decision to speak against Trump to Insider, explaining that despite the family’s polarizing political dynamics, she respects her parents. “They are the most generous, most well-educated people I have ever met,” Claudia said. “I look up to them and want nothing but success and good fortune for them. They are my parents and that trumps all — no pun intended.”

Clearly, when it comes to Kellyanne Conway, it turns out her apples are falling far from the tree.

Over the summervideos and posts shared from Claudia’s TikTok and Instagram posts revealed at least one out of four of Conway’s children isn’t a fan of her mother’s political party.

New York Times reporter Taylor Lorenz thrust Claudia into the spotlight earlier this week when she shared a string of videos taken and posed by the teenager which feature her ribbing Trump supporters for their politics. In several posts, Claudia encouraged TikTok followers, which the Times has said clocks in at 16,000, to leave one-star reviews of the president’s businesses. She has also used her pages to make fun of the difficulty of having political opinions different from that of her politically polarized parents.

“Believe it or not you can have your own opinions simply by educating yourself,” Claudia said in one video.

In another TikTok post, Claudia wrote “why do people hate on trump supporters… like why can’t we just respect everyone’s opinions? SIKE nah block me pls and then educate yourself.”

Note: Ivanka Trump DOES follow Claudia on Instagram which means this teen has some cajones.

Claudia has also expressed support for Black Lives Matter protests.

In the bio section of her TikTok account, Claudia writes, “it’s a great day to arrest brett hankison, john mattingly, and myles cosgrove.” The post is a reference to the death of Breonna Taylor who was shot and killed by Louisville, Kentucky police in her own home. According to The Washington Post, Taylor’s family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the officers. As of today, only Brett Hankison has been fired from the Louisville Metro Police.

Claudia isn’t the first Conway with liberals to cause some trouble for Kellyanne.

Conway’s husband George Conway, whom she married in April 2001, has been vocal about his negative opinions of Donald Trump. Throughout Trump’s presidency, Conway has questioned the president’s mental health, judgment, and intelligence. He has also drawn criticism from the president directly.

In 2019, Trump tweeted about Conway’s marriage to George Conway writing “George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!” 

In a comment to Claudia’s recent post about having different opinions than your parents, one follower wrote “Hello sis welcome to the left,” to which Claudia replied. “Hehe I’ve been here girly.”
