"The Argentine Journalism Forum (FOPEA, for its acronym in Spanish) warned Miriam Lewin, the head of the Ombudsman of Audiovisual Communication Services, that the creation of the Observatory of Disinformation and Symbolic Violence (NODIO) implies a clear risk to freedom of expression and the plurality of voices in the country.

Faced with the announcement of its creation, we as FOPEA asked for a hearing with the authorities of the Ombudsman to be able to hear first-hand the characteristics of the initiative and frankly express our opinions on the matter. As is our usual procedure, typical of our journalistic duty, we wanted to have as many details as possible so that we can form our opinion."
