The Inter American Press Association (IAPA) today reacted against the new controversy among the government of President Rafael Correa and Newspaper El Universo.
In a statement posted on its official site, the SIP rejected what they called is “a new wave of insults and critics” against the media and, according to the agency, this is a systematic campaign to discredit the newspaper of Guayaquil.
The new friction began due a publication made in El Telégrafo (now a government media), last May 3, which stated that El Universo would be involved in the construction of the Bus Terminal of Guayaquil, a business that allegedly would have harmed the state.
