Date: Jan 29, 2014

The director of the Andean Foundation for the Observation and Study of the Media (Fundamedios), César Ricaurte, said that his organization’s database of restrictions against the press, compiled since 2008, shows Correa as the top offender. “The president sustains a constant and systematic stigmatizing discourse against journalists and media workers. He has used the harshest adjectives with journalists and on his Saturday program he identifies them by name, and shows off their photos. Correa does that when he doesn’t like some bit of criticism or an op-ed.”
