'Censored because they gave me platform':


Former leader of Ecuador Rafael Correa believes his country's national broadcaster suddenly cut its distribution of RT Spanish simply because the channel gave him a platform to air views critical of Lenin Moreno's government.

"I am very sorry, I feel bad, because I think the National Telecommunications Corporation has cut off RT's broadcast because of me," Correa, who hosts a weekly political talk show on the channel, said.

In this particular case it looks like RT is being censored simply because they offered me a platform for my program.

Correa's comments come days after Ecuador's National Telecommunications Corporation (NTC) decided to cease its broadcast of RT Spanish without prior notice or explanation.
