The English edition of the Venezuelan newspaper Correo del Orinoco was recently distributed in the city of Boston for the first time as an insert in the weekly Hispanic newspaper, La Semana, according to the Consulate General of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in that city.
La Semana, a Spanish-language newspaper founded in 1978, covers the region of New England and is distributed free in schools, community centers, businesses, libraries, and subway stations.
Editor Pedro Cuenca said: “Our media has always been interested in offering a balanced view of the processes of change that are happening in Latin America.”
La Semana also owns an open signal television station that broadcasts content from the Latin American channel Telesur for several hours a day.
“We’re broadening our signal to make available three digital channels, one of which will be dedicated to Telesur,” Cuenca said.
The project to distribute the English edition of Correo del Orinoco in Boston is part of the communications initiatives of the Consulate in that city to help offer alternative perspectives and offset the unbalanced information about the Bolivarian Government and its institutions.
