Venezuela pulls Spanish-language CNN from air for 'distorting truth'

By Girish Gupta and Andrew Cawthorne CARACAS (Reuters) – President Nicolas Maduro’s government ordered the suspension of CNN’s Spanish-language service from Venezuela’s airwaves on Wednesday, accusing it of distorting the truth in coverage. U.S.-based ‘CNN en Espanol’ became unavailable on Venezuela’s major cable providers minutes after a statement by telecommunications regulator Conatel announcing the suspension. The network had irked the socialist government with various reports, including one alleging passports and visas were being sold illegally at Venezuela’s embassy in Iraq.
