[quote=Catholic.org]WASHINGTON, D.C. (Catholic Online) – Iran is not the only country enforcing a recent information blackout. Thirty-four radio stations in Venezuela have been forced off the air by officials of President Hugo Chavez in a move to silence those who aired viewed contrary to those of the government.
The country’s telecommunications regulators have revoked the licenses of some stations while choosing not to renew others. According to the Voice of America, The Circuito Nacional Belfort Network, CNB, 102.3 FM in Caracas, was among the first to stop broadcasting last Saturday morning. At least four other CNB stations also went off the air.
