Media in Venezuela

May 07,2017 - Last updated at May 07,2017

 The article “Protests alone will not fix Venezuela” (The Jordan Times, May 7, 2017) talks about the growing polarisation of Venezuelan political life, affirming that President Nicolas Maduro controls the media.

In this respect, it should be noticed that the vast majority of media outlets in Venezuela are privately owned and absolutely independent from the government.

Furthermore, most of the media are aligned with political opposition parties, and to this day, not one has been censored or closed down by government authorities.
