Owners of transnational media are responsible for misrepresenting the Venezuelan reality.
Venezuela's Vice-Chancellor for Europe Yvan Gil on Saturday denounced that his nation has been facing a media warfare for the last 20 years, which aims to distort what is happening in this South American country and minimize the achievements of the Bolivarian revolution.
According to this diplomat, owners of transnational media are the main responsible for the systematic misrepresentation of the Venezuelan reality.
"We've been victims of manipulation prompted mainly by companies," Gil said and explained that their attacks come from the fact that the Bolivarian people is performing a revolution.
He also recalled that misinformation can be explained very simply: mainstream newspapers, broadcasters, channels, and magazines support the oppressor and attack the oppressed.
"Very often, when it comes to reporting what happens in Venezuela, journalistic ethics does not exist," Gil denounced.
The Venezuelan diplomat made these statements during his stay in Paris, where he explained what is happening in his country to Senator Christian Cambon, the Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defense president.
