Conatel orders suspension of CNN in Spanish on Venezuelan television

Yesterday, the Comisión Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (Conatel) (Telecom regulator) opened an administrative sanctioning procedure against the signal for violating the Law on Social Responsibility in Radio and Television.

In the official statement, the agency explained that "this procedure is due to the content that has been disseminated by the aforementioned international news chain in a systematic and repeated way on the development of its daily programming, from which clear and perceptible contents emerge that allegedly constitute direct aggressions that undermine the peace and democratic stability of our Venezuelan people, since they generate a climate of intolerance. As without a truthful arguments and inappropriately, they falsify and distort the truth".

The Venezuelan cable operators no longer transmit the signal in Spanish but it continues to air CNN Internacional. From the news chain it was announced that the signal will be offered for free through Youtube.
