Venezuela’s news media has been squeezed by President Nicolás Maduro’s authoritarianism and the country’s ongoing economic crisis.

But Venezuela is not Cuba or North Korea. There are still a number of independent and critical journalists trying to cover news – though their job is far from easy.

On this edition of Global Journalist, we’ll hear more about the struggles of journalists in the country – and what Venezuela’s declining media freedom means for its governance.

Joining the program:

Assistant producers: Laura Miserez, Arianna Suardi 
Supervising producer: Trevor Hook 

Visual editor: Kyle McCubbin
