Brickbat: Red All Over

Four Venezuelan
newspapers have stopped publishing, and many others have been
slashing pages or circulation because of a shortage
of newsprint
. The country imports almost all its newsprint, but
publishers say that currency controls imposed by the government
make it difficult to acquire the dollars they need to buy
newsprint. They say the government is making it difficult for them
because newspapers are the only part of the media still willing to
criticize it.
