Univision Says It Has Recovered the Confiscated Video of an Interview With Nicolás Maduro

(CARACAS, Venezuela) — The Univision television network said Thursday that it has recovered the video of a contentious interview with Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro that was confiscated after he cut it short, angered by critical questions from journalist Jorge Ramos.

Ramos said the recovery of the video was “a real triumph against censorship” and that it was returned by “confidential sources” who cannot be named out of concern for their safety.

On its website, Spanish-language Univision showed an excerpt of the 17-minute interview in late February in the presidential palace in Caracas. Ramos said the video will be broadcast in full on Sunday.

The journalist and his team were deported from Venezuela after Maduro abruptly ended the interview. Ramos, one of the most influential Spanish-speaking journalists in the United States, had said shortly afterward that Maduro cut short the interview when he was shown a video on an iPad shot a day earlier of young Venezuelans eating food scraps out of the back of a garbage truck.

According to some Venezuelan reports (Maduradas.com), it was Jorge Rodriguez, Maduro's own Communications Minister, the one who allowed the video to be smuggled out of the country.

Why would Ramos ask a critical question of a Communist ? He loves Communism.

Apparently, he’s not quite at the end of that spectrum. Or, he might have just learned something from his brief detention.

If anything, I would think Ramos would be critical of Maduro that he hadn’t murdered ALL Conservative opposition to him. These leftist media nutters are bloodthirsty monsters.
