The team objected to López Obrador’s common offenses that people who disagree with him are”frivolous” or have financial or governmental ties to personal interests or conservative classes.
The president has researched some press outlets’ profitable deals with previous administrations, calling them ineffective. However, the intellectuals state the tone of these strikes has ruined press freedom.
López Obrador said Friday he’s not censored anyone and doesn’t mean to achieve that.
“We aren’t going to punish anyone, we aren’t likely to persecute anybody. They’re constantly going to have their dignity ensured,” López Obrador said of the signers of this letter.
But at precisely the same time, he also added, “this team supported neoliberal policies and they feel offended when they ought to do is apologizing for being stood by and done nothing while the nation had been looted.”
The letter asserts that”freedom of expression is under siege from Mexico, and that, democracy is jeopardized.”
“President López Obrador employs the rhetoric of stigmatizing and defaming the ones who calls his adversaries,” the letter persists.
The team also cited authorities’ legal threats against media outlets, however, there’s been just one huge case. In August the authorities declared a fine of 45,000 from a magazine which has been critical of López Obrador, and it prohibited national agencies from advertisements from the magazine for a couple of decades.
The national comptroller’s office maintained that the magazine introduced false documentation whilst attempting to get paid to get a people wellbeing promotional advertisement a preceding government conducted in the magazine in 2018. Press groups are known as the nice surplus, noting that the magazine charged less than $3,000 for your advertisement.
“Expressions that stigmatize are extremely detrimental for freedom of expression and also the incentive to perpetrate violence against journalists and intellectuals is big,” Hooten explained.
In the six decades of the preceding government, 39 were murdered.
“This government isn’t carrying out the type of direct censorship which has been performed under previous administrations, and that’s great,” Hooten explained. “But violence against the media is in precisely the same degree, or greater.”
