Venezuela’s president Nicolas Maduro has warned US television network CNN to report the protests in the country accurately or face expulsion.
Maduro accused CNN Espanol of becoming the platform for the opposition’s voice, saying Caracas does not accept war propaganda against Venezuela and will remove CNN from the air in the country if the channel does not “rectify” the way it has covered the protests.
In a live television appearance on Thursday, Maduro said he asked the Minister of Communication and Information Delcy Rodríguez to notify CNN that the administrative process of removing them from Venezuela has begun if they do not rectify (comply).”
“CNN will leave Venezuela. Enough of the war propaganda,” he added.
A CNN spokesperson told Reuters the network did not have any immediate comments about Maduro’s remarks.
