Obama Appoints Wife of Univision to UN diplomatic post

President Obama has appointed the wife of the owner of Univision, Cheryl Saban, as U.S. representative to the United Nations. Haim Saban, owner of the network, backed Hillary Clinton in her presidential bid in 2008, but during the summer donated $1 million to groups supporting the campaigns of Democrats.

The appointment of Saban was made the day before Obama appeared at a forum at the University of Miami hosted by Univision.

Haim Saban, a billionaire businessman, took control of Univision in 2006 topping a bid made by media conglomerate Televisa of Mexico.

Mrs. Saban has never worked in any diplomatic post but has been active in philanthropic and non-profit organizations such as CARE USA, Children’s Network International, Mercy Corps, Plan USA.
