Political Police searches offices of Venevision

June 11, 2004

The Political Police have initiated a procedure against Venevision one of the main private channels in Venezuela. I imagined that before the referendum a lot of the private media will be investigated on phony charges. I’ve never understood the stupidity of these measures taken by authoritarian governments, if what the media says are lies, you only have to tell the truth and wait. If they are saying the truth and it scares you, you have bigger problems than the media itself. This types of measures just proof how desperate and isolated the government is.
