Venezuela’s president, Nicolas Maduro, wants CNN out of the country, saying that it misrepresents the truth and meddles in issues that aren’t of its concern.
“CNN, do not get into the affairs of Venezuelans. I want CNN well away from here. Outside of Venezuela. Do not put your nose in Venezuela,” the president said.
He made the comment after blaming CNN distorting the facts when reporting on irregularities at a Caracas public high school, Fox reports. “Some media like CNN tried to manipulate. They cannot manipulate! That is our business, of the Venezuelans,” he said.
The threat came a few days after CNN en Espanol’s in-depth investigation into how officials of the Venezuelan Embassy in Iraq allegedly sold Venezuelan passports and visas to suspected terrorists.
