The President of the Regulation of Communication Council (Cordicom), Patricio Barriga, clarifies that authorities do not seek to remove programs but to make the media present edited contents.
Thus, he mentions that the changes are not dedicated to a program in particular but are looking to train and educate through institutions.
He also referred to comments made by the Ombudsman, Ramiro Rivadeneira, about removing programmes which, in his opinion, affect rights. According to Barriga, it is not necessary to eliminate programs. `In the case of programmes in which women appear as objects, that content should be treated differently´, he mentions.
Regarding programs that portray a social collective, such as the country people, he thinks that the program is not produces in the best way. `But it could be a space to tell the culture of these peoples. Do not use that easy joke that rights are being trampled´, he said.
