Ecuador criticizes RCTV CEO remarks against President Correa

El Universal, July 25, 2007

Ecuador dismissed as "impertinent and insulting" TV channel Radio Caracas Televisión (RCTV) CEO Marcel Granier criticisms against the president of the South American country Rafael Correa, whom he branded as "ignorant" for backing the Venezuelan government decision not to renew RCTV broadcast license.

The Ecuadorian government voiced its rejection to the impertinent and insulting nature of Granier's statements from Caracas to station Radio Quito, where he " threw unwarranted vulgarities at president" Correa, said Ecuadorian Ambassador to Caracas, Francisco Suéscum, in a letter addressed to Granier.

Suéscum lambasted Granier's remarks labeling them of "clumsy," and advised RCTV CEO to "present enough proofs to back his statements."
