Forbes has a suitably colorful take on what appears to be the end of the Univision auction:
A suitor makes a bid for the object of his affections. He is spurned. The brokenhearted hero vows not give in without a fight.
It's the kind of plot line one might find in one of the many telenovelas produced by Grupo Televisa (nyse: TV - news - people ) for Univision Communications (nyse: UVN - news - people ), the dominant Spanish-language television company in the U.S. And in an example of life imitating melodramatic art, Univision has rejected a buyout offer from Televisa, prompting the Mexican broadcasting company to pronounce its intention to press on.
Somebody cue the violins.
Surely, though, it should read: "Somebody cue the mariachi?"
