Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas – Ecuador president blasts news media during speech at Columbia University in New York

Date: Sep 29, 2011

More coverage of Ecuador President Rafael Correa’s visit to the United States. This article includes video from the President’s speech:

In Correa’s speech, ironically titled “Vulnerable Societies: Media and Democracy in Latin America” given that his administration has routinely sued and attacked the news media, the Ecuadoran president accused journalists of lying, saying the press has a “lack of love for the truth,” according to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ). Such anti-press rhetoric is nothing new for Correa, who in the past has referred to journalists as “ink assassins.”
