Following allegations of the regime of Evo Morales, Bolivia, of answering to Chilean interests and manipulates public opinion. The journalist Raul Penarana Undurraga resigned last Thursday, August 22, at the direction of the newspaper ‘Pagina Siete’, which has run since its founding in 2010.
Undurraga said “to prevent the Government to continue attacking us is that I have decided to resign.”
The newspaper ‘Pagina Siete’ belongs to the Garafulic family, which was appointed by the Minister of the Presidency, Juan Ramon Quintana, as “functional for the Chilean interests of the Chilean right-wing, and the ultra-conservative Chilean businessmen“.
The minister stressed that a Garafulic family member, married to a Chilean right-wing congressman had asked, presumably, to the media to define if they’ll conducted “honest journalism” or be part of an opposition political party.
Quintana listed of alleged “seven lies” published by ‘Pagina Siete’ in which it highlighted the title used by the newspaper claiming that four Bolivian ministers were excommunicated by being pro-abortion. Penarama apologized for the controversy.
In ‘Pagina Siete’ “there is an intention, a definite policy, there is a work aimed to hurt, damage, and eroding the national government,” said Quintana.
