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.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
