President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, denounced at a press conference the US network CNN which he alleged conspires against his government and against anti-imperialist and progressive countries.
Last February, hours before a referendum on constitutional reform took place in Bolivia, US journalist and agent, Carlos Valverde, accused the president of influence peddling in favor of his former partner, Gabriela Zapata, who Valverde claimed had a child for Morales.
Shortly after, CNN interviewed the alleged son of the president and, although he realized the latter was not the child he talked about, he never reported this promptly.
‘If he were a responsible journalist he would have reported this fact, but as the CNN was another means of communication for political conspiracy, he remained silent and did not correct it. That is the complicity of a crime, “he said.
The head of state expressed regret that some journalists participate at the game of political conspiracy and stated that the prosecution would probably summon the CNN correspondent to be investigated.
