A Newsroom and a Lifeline: Univision’s Urgent Sense of Purpose

“On the one hand, we knew that it would have a terrible impact on the Hispanic community in the United States,” Univision’s president of news, Daniel Coronell, told me as we sat in his office overlooking the buzzing central newsroom.

U.S. sells Qatar F-15s just days after Trump says country funds terror

Qatar said Wednesday it has signed a $12 billion deal to buy F-15 fighter jets from the United States — just days after President Donald Trump accused the country of being a "high-level" sponsor of terrorism.

The U.S. military announced a similar $21.1 billion deal in November, in the waning days of the Obama administration, for 72 F-15QA fighter jets for Qatar, the Associated Press reported. The Pentagon told Reuters in an email that the sale will increase security cooperation and military compatibility between the U.S. and Qatar.
