Journalism program goes off the air in Ecuador; sources say move came after government pressure

"The program 'Los irreverentes' —hosted by journalists Sol Borja, Fabricio Vela and José Luis Cañizares—, which was broadcast on RTU, was cancelled. Fundamedios learned, unofficially, that the cancellation occurred after pressure from the Government in the face of the criticism expressed in the program. Sources from the media outlet deny it and point out that it closed for strictly commercial reasons.

We [Fundamedios] reject and condemn the incident that is a result of a new authoritarian model in Ecuador, through which an attempt is made to impose a single truth and official discourse, eradicating any critical voice."
