    “Is this about plurality or censorship?”

    Well considering Telesur's inability to offer viewpoints that don't align with the whole 'Bolivarian revolution' then I would have to say it is about censorship.

    Telesur's censorship!

    Telesur is the Pravda of South America. Sort of like Voice and KepiTroll but with a URL.

    We get Telesur on DirecTV and watch it regularly for the entertainment value. I really like the way they refer to dead Chavez as “physically departed”. Where did he go?...Cuba? And they blather on and on about dead Nestor if these commies are alive and well somewhere.
    'Audiences in Latin America have embraced the network as a politicized alternative to CNN en Español and as one of the few outlets offering in-depth coverage of the region's lesser-told stories and places.” Well, that is a laugh. In depth coverage?? Never, ever, do you hear about the crime in Venezuela, the food shortages, the misery endured by the Venezuelans under the dictatorship there. They constantly criticize the National Assembly since the election of the right. They run ads about dead Chavez constantly, brainwashing the citizens into believing that he was, is the be all to end all. And that he actually really lives...God. It is nothing but a propaganda machine for the government of Venezuela and there is no reason for Argentina to be paying for this bullshit. Oh yes, since the election of Macri Argentina is on its shit list also...of course. They can't tolerate the press...the free press. NTN24 is censored in Venezuela and is only available to the people there via the internet.
