Globovisión and Vale TV barred from new digital broadcasting system

first_img Organisation Help by sharing this information Two journalists murdered just days apart in Venezuela February 22, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Globovisión and Vale TV barred from new digital broadcasting system RSF_en to go further Vice-President Nicolás Maduro said the TDA would help to combat “commercial content that has promoted pornography, drugs, prostitution and the use of firearms to encourage crime.”Information minister Ernesto Villegas described it as part of a new Bolivarian Communication and Information System meant to “generate content that does not resemble capitalism’s culture and meets the requirement of real independence.”“Intended to improve the TV broadcasting technology used in Venezuela, this project is praiseworthy in principle but in fact has been subordinated to the government’s ideological goals,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The elimination of Globovisión and Vale TV from the TDA has again shown that the government’s approach to broadcasting threatens pluralism.”“This decision is discriminatory, violates Venezuelan’s own constitutional guarantees and could condemn these two stations to disappear. It is one more example of the persecution of Globovisión, which has already been the target of eight disciplinary procedures under the Law of Social Responsibility in Radio, TV and Electronic Media (Ley Resortemec).”Reporters Without Borders is also concerned about the fate of certain regional TV stations in the TDA’s subsequent phases.Globovisión described its exclusion from the TDA as a “death sentence” in a press release issued on the same day as the announcement. If confined to analogue broadcasting, Globovisión could disappear altogether – before its current concession expires in 2015 – when the authorities declare that the switchover to digital broadcasting is complete.When it no longer has an over-the-air broadcasting licence, it would no longer be legally able to broadcast on cable or satellite either. The same applies to Vale TV and any other TV station excluded from the TDA.TDA launch Follow the news on Venezuela January 13, 2021 Find out more VenezuelaAmericas Receive email alerts Globovisión, the only national TV station that is constantly critical of the government, has been excluded from a new system of Open Digital Television (TDA), which the government launched on 20 February in a televised announcement that all the broadcast media had to carry (see video below).Under the TDA system, all TV stations currently broadcasting by means of an analogue signal will eventually have to switch to a digitally processed signal in order to continue operating. The first phase of the switchover includes the National Public Media System and the privately-owned TV stations Venevisión, Televen, Meridiano and La Tele.Vale TV, a Catholic Church-run station broadcasting in the Caracas area, has also been excluded from the new digital system.

Overtime 7-3-13

first_img:10 Ring…Ring…RRRRiiiinnnngggg…Yo, Smitty’s Bar and Grill you stab-em, we’ll slab-em!  Who…Who…Wait, hold on, I can’t hear you. There’s a lot of noise here. Some woman and her kids crying and stuff. OK, go ahead.Oh yeah, Paula Deen, yeah she’s here.  Matter of fact, she’s the one doing all the crying.  Said she didn’t mean it and some of her best friends are N——-, I mean Black. OK maybe not best, but the butler, maid, gardener, chauffeur and nanny are…OK, maybe not friends, but she speaks to them when she sees them. Anyway, hold on a second.  Hello. This is Paul-la, Oprah is that you Dar-lin? Oprah, please help me fix this girl, you know I didn’t mean what I said. I can’t understand why people only believe what they hear!You know that when I was on your show you Never – Heard – Me- Use – That – Word.  (At least I don’t think you heard me!) Besides, you know you, Michelle Obama and Jay-Z are really my N—– and you know I mean that with much love! Wait, girl I gotta go now my sons are fighting over that last sponsor we got left. Lord if we lose KFC, we’re really gonna end up in the hood with them N—–, I mean the less fortunate! I’ll call ya back girl!:09 What can I say? I’m man enough to admit it. You all were wrong. The Pirates are for real!  The best team in baseball.  Willie “Pops” Stargell would be proud.:08 Just as a side sports note, not a movie review. I watched “Secretariet” the movie, you know the horse…for all you inner-city grads. Anyway, from a pure sports/athletic perspective, the horse won the triple crown, but even more amazingly won the third race by 31 lengths…31!! That’s like LeBron scoring 50 and Kevin Durrant scoring 10. Un – be – lieve – able!:07 Speaking of movie reviews.  Here you go.  Please, just shut up and take it like a man…woman…whatever!Man of Steel—3 basketballs—but a little too much Hollywood stuff at the end.The Heat—4 basketballs  starring Sandra Bullock and the “Big Girl.” Funniest movie of the year.:06 Here it is finally. Dude’s Top 10 Greatest of All Time. (As you know, he’s on vacation).1. Wilt Chamberlain 2. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 3. Bill Russell 4. Connie Hawkins 5. Julius Erving 6. Larry Bird 7. Oscar Robertson 8. Magic Johnson 9. Michael Jordan 10. Jerry West.OK, I told you it was an all-right list, but the fact that he has Jordan No. 9 tells you why he’s on vacation. And he should stay there.:05 Steelers camp is one month away!:04 Hey Roy, you’re in the locker room, but Dwight Law and I told you Steven Adams    was going to get picked in the 1st round. C’mon man.:03 Rushel Shell. Maybe it’s not true.  Maybe you can’t always go home!:02 I would say something about Aaron Hernandez, but I don’t want to turn up missing too. So I won’t!:01 Congratulations to Dr. Marcia Sturdivant, the new Director of NEED, replacing the late great Sylvester Pace.  A great lady. A great organization. Great things will continue to happen.:00 Hey, I didn’t forget Al and Val you’re in the locker room too.
