Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro has threatened to expel the US TV news channel CNN unless it “rectified its coverage” of the recent protests.
“I asked the Communications Minister to notify CNN to start the administrative process of removing them from Venezuela if they don’t rectify their story. CNN, go from Venezuela and stop your propaganda war. I don’t accept a propaganda war,” Maduro announced on TV.
Anti-government protests continued in cities across Venezuela on Thursday with people angry at high levels of crime and economic hardship.
