for daring to report on the passports-for-terrorists scheme,
The channel disappeared from all national cable providers minutes after the media regulator said it launched disciplinary proceedings against CNN en Español for “direct aggression against the peace and democratic stability of Venezuelan people.”
For many Venezuelans, CNN en Español had become the last independent source of news about their country, as the government steadily bought out, shut down or starved local media of resources.
. . .
Earlier this week, it was the only Spanish-language TV station in Venezuela to report on the U.S. sanctions against the country’s powerful vice president, Tareck El Aissami, for alleged drug trafficking. CNN En Español also implicated Mr. El Aissami last week in the fraudulent sale of passports to Middle Eastern citizens with links to terrorism.
ABC’s Nightline did a report, Venezuela: Descent Into Chaos (you can watch here) that I highly recommend, on the hunger situation. The reporter was held for 3 days.
Democratic socialism at work.
