Media news

Here is one news story you won't read in the Communist Party-controlled media outlets of the Castro regime. Not in full, anyway.

Thousands of journalists and other media workers carried a huge banner through Caracas yesterday to protest at a decision by the Venezuelan president, Hugo Chavez, to close down one of the few remaining independent television stations in the country.

Coincidentally, the Chavez announcement was made at about the same time as Abel Prieto, who goes by the title of Cuban Minister for Culture, arrived in Venezuela to attend a meeting of leftist "journalists".

The meeting was due to discuss such important issues as "ownership of means of communication" and "the impunity and power of the huge corporate media".
