Nicolás Maduro to meet with owners of major private TV networks
President Nicolás Maduro said the meeting is intended to address the "anti-values of capitalism" which, he said, are one of the reasons behind high crime rates in Venezuela
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the "anti-values of capitalism" that are broadcast by the media. According to Maduro, this is one of the causes of high crime rates in Venezuela. "You have to change. Venevisión, Televen, and all television networks in this country need to change. I will suggest them to make other type of television," said Maduro.
He said that Camero and Cisneros confirmed their attendance to the meeting.
A group of some 60 Venezuelan economists from across the country and from different generations and backgrounds, has met regularly in the past couple of years and now has brought forth a document explaining the reasons of the current emergency and outlining specific proposals on how to address the serious economic crisis the country has plunged into over the last three years.
