The television channel Ecuavisa has refrained from transmitting the mandatory broadcasts of the Ministry of Communication (SECOM) that are part of the campaign ‘Citizenship speaks to the media,’ according to a communiqué on the broadcaster´s website. “Ecuavisa believes that these broadcastings contravene the right to personal honor and other rights under the Constitution and the Communications Law,” says the text.
The Secom diffuses through its YouTube channel the broadcastings with the opinions of citizens about renowned journalists and media.
In the case of Alfonso Espinosa de los Monteros, Ecuavisa Journalist, the text states that “He is being discriminated because of his age and this goes against the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Constitution of the Republic.”
