Hollywood, CA – May 12, 2013, Diversity News Radio produced by Diversity News Productions held a special radio show on Diversity News Radio on AIR with Steven Escobar about: Bogus charitable organizations, hacked account and Eric Zuley Retaliation!

Listen to radio show here:

Listen to internet radio with Diversity News Radio on BlogTalkRadio

Mr. Zuley was serve with a cease on desist letter on or around April 30, 2013 and on/around second week of May 2013 he went online to unfairly and unethical accusing our Executive Editor-In-Chief and Diversity News Publications president Steven Escobar of posting negative staff on him on http://www.ripoffreport.com, a group created on Facebook and a blog that was created due to the fact that our Executive Editor-In-Chief account was hacked!

“I have lost respect and admiration on Eric Zuley. He have done me wrong, listen to my show and find out why. This is a show that you must listen, Eric Zuley’s cease and desist letter and more. Listen to my new episode Bogus charitable organizations and Eric Zuley Retaliation!” said Steven Escobar, Radio host, editor and businessman.

Eric Zuley Ripoff Report ComplaintsHere at Diversity News Publications and Diversity News Productions we belief that Mr. Zuley is retaliating against Mr. Escobar for the letter issue to him. Which we think is not fair and ethical. He have violated Mr. Escobar’s attorney request. We hope Mr. Zuley will apologize and remove those posts or we will have to publicize the letter for you to see it.

Mr. Escobar have no time or nothing to do on those ripoff postings on Eric Zuley, neither with the Facebook group against him or created the blog which we already say his account was hacked. Mr. Escobar is willing to talk and settle this case with Mr. Zuley and hope he understand that his actions are violating his attorney letter request and showing how childish he is.

Mr. Escobar held the radio show to just set the record straight and clear, there is/was no intentions of slander or defamation on the radio show. The purpose of Diversity News Radio On Air with Steven Escobar was/is to defend himself from those unethical, unprofessional and unfair allegations by Mr. Eric Zuley.

Eric Zuley listen to Diversity News Radio on Air with Steven Escobar show 5-12-13We are glad Mr. Zuley did listen to Diversity News Radio On Air with Steven Escobar radio show held on Sunday, May 12, 2013. Click on pictures to view on regular size.

We also found a blog posted by Eric Zuley accusing a guy name Doug Williams of been behind of these happening to him. As you may see Mr. Zuley will point to any one that he thinks that are speaking up against him.

Our own Steven Escobar is a well respectable individual in the community and he will not waste his time on doing anything against Mr. Zuley due to the fact that he have given Mr. Zuley lots of media coverage on the past!

This article post is not intended to defame or slander Mr. Eric Zuley, we are just intended to let you know that in the media/press publishing industry you are supposed to show both sides of the story. It is fair for us to allow Mr. Escobar by publicizing this post in the company site where he is the president.

Merry Christmas and A Prosperous New Year 2012 from The Diversity News Publications Family of Companies

Diversity News Publications Family of CompaniesThe entire management team and staff at Diversity News Publications, Diversity News Magazine, Esteban Steven Escobar, Diversity News TV, Diversity News Hollywood, Diversity News Los Angeles, Diversity News Online and Diversity News Radio from The Diversity News Publications Family of Companies wants to wish you and your love ones a Merry Christmas and A Prosperous New Year 2012.

Please take a moment to read what really Christmas and New Year Day is.

What is Christmas?
Christmas or Christmas Day (Old EnglishCrīstesmæsse, literally “Christ‘smass“) is an annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ,[5][6] celebrated generally on December 25[2][3][4] as a religious and cultural holiday by billions of people around the world. A feast central to the Christian liturgical year, it closes theAdvent season and initiates the twelve days of Christmastide.[7] Christmas is a civil holiday in many of the world’s nations,[8][9][10] is celebrated by an increasing number of non-Christians,[1][11][12] and is an integral part of the Christmas and holiday season.

The popular celebratory customs associated in various countries with Christmas have a mix of pre-ChristianChristian and secular themes and origins.[19] Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift givingChristmas music and caroling, an exchange of Christmas cardschurch celebrations, a special meal, and the display of various decorations, including Christmas treeslightsnativity scenesgarlandswreathsmistletoe, and holly. In addition, several closely related and often interchangeable figures, known as Santa ClausFather ChristmasSaint Nicholas and Kris Kringle among other names, are associated with bringing gifts to children during the Christmas season and have their own body of traditions and lore.[20] Because gift-giving and many other aspects of the Christmas festival involve heightened economic activity among both Christians and non-Christians, the holiday has become a significant event and a key sales period for retailers and businesses. The economic impact of Christmas is a factor that has grown steadily over the past few centuries in many regions of the world.

What is New Year’s Day:
New Year’s Day is observed on January 1, the first day of the year on the modern Gregorian calendar as well as the Julian calendar used in ancient Rome. With most countries using the Gregorian calendar as their main calendar, New Year’s Day is the closest thing to being the world’s only truly global public holiday, often celebrated with fireworks at the stroke of midnightas the new year starts. January 1 on the Julian calendar currently corresponds to January 14 on the Gregorian calendar, and it is on that date that followers of some of the Eastern Orthodoxchurches celebrate the New Year.
