Milenio.com launched its website at the same time with its printed outlet Milenio Diario. In December 2011, Héctor Tajonar, a columnist from Milenio.com, resigned from his position after accusing the publishing director Carlos Marín (then collaborator in Televisa) that he was influencing him to “stop criticizing Televisa”. In 2014, Grupo Milenio signed an agreement with the Spanish daily El Mundo, with which Milenio.com could reproduce news from European milieu.
