Maduro announces meeting with new owners of Globovisión
The Venezuelan president stressed the need to build a new television "to sanitize fascism in our society"
"The new owners of Globovisión asked me (for a meeting). I will do it. I do not know them; I do not know who they are," said the president at the Miraflores presidential palace.
Regarding his meeting on Monday with the owners of private TV stations Venevisión and Televén, Gustavo Cisneros and Omar Camero, respectively, Maduro said the meeting was intended at the "construction of a new television in Venezuela for peace, to sanitize fascism in our society. It is my duty as head of state."
"I will not accept anyone promoting fascism in Venezuela," he stressed.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
