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.
They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
