Venezuela sells last critical TV news network

Critics say Globovision's acquisition by private investors who want to neutralise channel aims to silence opposition.

    Venezuela's opposition has long complained of having its voice unfairly silenced by the government.

    Critics say the government is attempting to further censor the political opposition by selling Globovision, the sole TV network that is critical of the country's leadership, to a group of private investors who want to neutralise the cannel.
