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.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
