Venezuelan-American writer Eva Golinger: "'Telesur has had a fundamental role in dismantling the received opinions of the international media and in promoting another class of journalism, which consists of going into and bearing witness to the facts.' At the same time, she expresses her enthusiasm at one of the first printed copies of the only Venezuelan English-language newspaper, Correo de Orinoco International. 'It is the first time that there is information in English from a Venezuelan perspective, from the Venezuelan revolution,' she affirms with pride." Granma, 29 January 2010.
     "Yuri Pimentel has finally been removed from the presidency of State VTV channel and TV presenter, Tania Diaz appointed in his place. ... [S]ome observers suggest that growing criticism of government media ineffectiveness and shortfalls is responsible for the change, which comes shortly after appointing Eva Golinger as editor of the new Correo del Orinoco in English to present US and European circles with a government perspective of news." Patrick J. O'Donoghue, VHeadline.com, 31 January 2010.
