The philosopher and communicator, Miguel Ángel Pérez Pirela, emphasizes that Venezuela is a country that opposes an absolute hegemonic model and knows how to break the blackmail of the media that manipulates the concept of freedom of expression and imposes in the content they wish to distort. national identity.
In the third broadcast of the Lucha Almada podcast, directed by the vice president of the Communications, Culture and Tourism sector, Freddy Ñañez, Pérez Pirela added that the power that tries to hide behind the freedom of expression, is now even more trying to blackmail the baseless. narratives and distorted, as a method of war.
Likewise, he stated that with the Bolivarian Revolution, initiated by Commander Chávez, a change in communication began, in front of the content of the media that seeks to take the world view of the citizens to impose a vision- look at the world and establish it as an absolute truth.
This communication reform arose because of the urgency to end the image that was structured by the media between the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, a time in which they created a false identity of people with the transmission for more than six hours a day. in soap operas to prevent the emergence of critical thinking. “It wasn’t us,” he emphasized.
In this sense, he emphasized that the Bolivarian Revolution “exploded” the imposed narrative, and it resulted in an economic blockade, sanctions, coups d’état; “Venezuela’s sin is the violation of a narrative imposed, not only on the country, not only on Latin America, but on what is now called the Global South,” he insisted.
The philosopher added that the identity of a country can be built through the media, which is why he assured that in order to make social and sociopolitical change, one of the main powers that must be disrupted is the power of the media.
