Four-year jail term for newspaper editor who investigated corruption

The newspaper’s reporting led to the arrest of several of the company’s managers, but they were later released.“We question the real motives of the court’s decision and suspect another attempt by the authorities to censor and intimidate the independent press,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America desk. “Venezuela’s independent media are the victims of institutional persecution. The authorities must respect the fundamental principle of a right to information.”One of the few independent newspapers in Venezuela, the Correo del Caroní has been subjected to many different forms of harassment by the authorities in Bolívar state in recent years. It has been denied state advertising, pressure has been put on private-sector companies not to place advertising with the newspaper, newsstand owners have been bribed not to sell it, and it has been threatened with seizure of its headquarters.This defamation case is not the first of its kind in Venezuela. In May 2015, RSF issued a press release condemning a judge’s decision to ban 22 editors and executives of three independent media outlets from leaving the country when a suit was brought against them accusing them of “aggravated and continuing defamation.” Journalists who cover corruption involving government officials or cases of violence by state agents are often the targets of harassment or physical violence, especially during elections.Venezuela is ranked 137th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2015 World Press Freedom Index.

Famed Music Photographer Jay Blakesberg Announces Slideshow & Storytelling Presentation With Roosevelt Collier & More

first_imgLegendary Grateful Dead photographer Jay Blakesberg has announced a special slideshow/storytelling presentation dubbed ‘Between The Dark And Light’. The intimate event takes place Tuesday, November 27th, at the Miami Beach JCC. The evening will feature a 70-minute slideshow/storytelling presentation about Jay’s 40-year journey photographing the Grateful Dead, immediately followed by live music from Unlimited Devotion with special guest Roosevelt Collier.Tickets for the event can be purchased here. For 40 years, Jay Blakesberg has been a staple of the live music scene. The photographer is most well-known for his connection with the Grateful Dead, where he got his start, but has captured everyone from Eric Clapton to Neil Young to B.B. King and so many more. For more information on Jay’s upcoming events, to view his galleries, or to purchase prints of his work, head to his website.Read an excerpt from an interview we did with Jay a few years back below:L4LM: Over the years, your work has become a part of the fabric of the consciousness of the music scene. Do you get a sense of what your work has meant to people?Jay Blakesberg: Yeah, I think I do. And again, a lot of that comes from social media because you get a lot of direct feedback from people. I’ve always been a photographer. Pre-social media, I strongly believed that I was not taking these photographs for them to sit in a box; they need to be seen. I’ve had people that I’ve met at concerts—young kids, older people—who’ve talked to me and been, “Who are you?  What do you do?” And I tell them. In those days, the only place you could see my photographs was in magazines, so you either had to subscribe to that magazine or read that magazine. And, of course, CD packages and all of that, but you’d have to read the photo credits to know that was mine.I remember being at a concert and talking about a story I did—I think it was about the band Love And Rockets—and some kid, like 25, said “I remember that! I had those pages and pictures posted on my walls for like two years when I was 18 years old!”  The world is changing in terms of that immediate feedback where people can “Like” your photo, they can comment on your photo, they can express what that photo means to them.  So I do get a lot of messages, when I go to festivals I do get a lot of “thank yous” from people who know who I am. Twenty years ago, fifteen years ago, ten years ago, people didn’t know who I was visually, because I wasn’t on Facebook, right? Nobody was. Social media has changed that, taking my work and allowing it to be shared with a large group of people over a large distance. And my photo is on Facebook—not pictures that I take, but pictures of me.Now, everybody has a camera  Back in the day, you would never take pictures of your fellow photographers, but now everybody takes pictures of the photographer at work. And everybody sends them to me and tags me in them. I’m always so happy to see them. It’s great! It documents my life and what I’m doing. But people give me direct feedback in the form of emails, “thank yous”, hugs in person, and notes, and I appreciate that. So, I do have a sense of the fact that people are seeing my work, enjoying my work, and it is resonating with them. That really makes me happy, and that’s really important to me—to see people react to my photography.last_img read more
