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"

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.
