Argentina's government removes teleSUR from the air

“The multi-state news channel teleSUR, headquartered in Venezuela, denounced Monday [May 6] that its broadcasting on Argentina's Open Digital Television (TDA, by its Spanish acronym) was cancelled.

'The media censorship against teleSUR in Argentina represents a serious attack on the right to information, by limiting access to dissident voices, restricting the plurality of information, undermining the possibility of holding informed opinions and actively participating in the public debate,' the network said in a statement.

[...] teleSUR also said that this decision is a 'deafening blow' against freedom of expression and plurality of voices, which 'paves a worrying step backwards on the road to a society that builds its own criteria and sovereign thought.'”
