Nicaraguan government removes CNN en Español from the air

"The Nicaraguan government took CNN en Español off the air Thurs. Sept. 22 at 12:07 a.m. ET, 10:07 p.m. Wed. in the Central American country. (...) CNN issued a statement on the off-airing of its signal in Nicaragua: 'At CNN en Español we believe in the vital role that freedom of the press plays in a healthy democracy. Today the Government of Nicaragua pulled our television signal, denying Nicaraguans news and information from our network, which they have trusted for more than 25 years. CNN en Español will continue to fulfill its responsibility to the Nicaraguan public by providing our news links on CNNEspanol.com, so they can have access to information that is not otherwise available.'"
