Venezuela Newsprint “Shortage” Spells Death for Independent Media

“The only newspapers who are complaining of paper shortages are the independent media. In Venezuela, the right to be informed is at stake,” says Carolina González, editor in chief of Venezuelan daily El Carabobeño. Her outlet is on its last legs: paper stocks are enough to print one month more of coverage of the central region of Venezuela. When it runs out, over 1000 direct and indirect jobs will be at risk.
