Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is launching “The Americano,” a bilingual Web site to counter the liberal Internet sites on “all issues that concern American Hispanics today.”

Whether you are first-, second-, third- or fourth-generation American Hispanic — or whether you speak English or Spanish or both — our content is catered to what unites us all, which is our American Hispanic heritage, Americano Editor-in-Chief Sylvia Garcia said in an e-mailed announcement Thursday. The site can be found at theamericano.com.

We offer as diverse content as our culture by covering health, education, government, politics, international issues and even sports, said Ms. Garcia, who is also Hispanic Outreach Director for Mr. Gingrich, a former Republican congressman from Georgia.

Hispanic heritage is as rich today in the United States, as it was back in 1850s when the first bilingual newspapers were printed, Mr. Gingrich said in the e-mail. It is terribly important that all the tough issues that we are facing today are properly delivered to all Americans.

He said the site aims to be the first Hispanic news and opinion site with content to create a “grass-roots Latino base, geared towards traditional values.”
