Reporters Without Borders for Press Freedom – PRESIDENT CORREA TOLD IT IS TIME TO CHOOSE – REVOLUTION OR WAR WITH MEDIA
Date: Sep 7, 2011
A letter to Rafael Correa, President of Ecuador, site of the Chevron trial, expressing concerns about freedom of the press in the country:
Reporters Without Borders, an international organization that defends freedom of expression, recently referred to the mounting tension between you and some of the privately-owned media, tension that was exacerbated by the daily El Universo’s prosecution at your request. We fear that this polarization could affect not only editorial pluralism but also the needed debate about media and communication in Ecuadorean society. The situation requires clear decisions from you.
