In an interview with the Spanish newspaper El País, Correa said that all power needs social regulation and that is done through laws. `Where is the problem? Why is it a power that auto-legitimizes saying it is freedom of the press? ´, Said the president.
Correa added that `criticism is not sanctioned by law and neither by the Government. Lies, infamy, slander are punishable.´
`It is perfectly legitimate to have a law of communication, which is not media law, that has positive things as the professionalization of journalists,´ he conlcuded.
