CPJ calls on the government of President Evo Morales to implement the following recommendations
- Ensure that constitutional reforms do not restrict freedom of the press. Support efforts to strengthen constitutional guarantees of free expression.
- Show greater tolerance of criticism in the media. Refrain from disparaging individual journalists and media outlets. Refrain from labeling critics as “enemies.”
- Call on social and political groups that support the government to stop harassing and attacking journalists who are covering street protests and other public events.
- Ensure that state media adhere to their charter by serving the interests of all Bolivians and not the narrow partisan interests of the administration.
