Honduras to address press freedom issues

I’m not really sure what Pres. Lobo wants to talk about but I am nervous about calling a meeting to study the limit of freedom of expression and how that fits in with defense of economic interests.

Pepe analizará límites a la libertad de expresión

The Lobo Administration has been a strong supporter of press freedom. I don’t think he is proposing controls on the media to limit criticism. But any discussion of linking press freedom and national interest makes me nervous.

In a democracy, maintaining press freedom IS in the national interest.
