Radio Caracas Television (RCTV), Venezuela’s oldest private TV network, broadcasted until midnight of May 27, 2007. The President of this Latin American country, Hugo Chavez, refused to renew the license of the television station, founded in 1953. This government’s decision responds to the support given by RCTV for a failed coup attempt against Chavez in 2002. RCTV provided full coverage of an opposition march, which ended in violence, on April 11, 2002. President Chavez was overthrown for two days, while a coup-installed leader, Pedro Carmona, took his place in Miraflores, the government palace.

Marciel Granier, chief of RCTV, supported Carmona actively. After Chavez’s return, the TV network continued its critics against the Venezuelan government, which led to the decline to renew its license.The international news media have been concerned about the closure of Radio Caracas Television. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the Committee to Protect Journalists and members of the European Parliament, the U.S. Senate, and other reliable institutions have denounced this fact, which casts doubts about the freedom of expression in Venezuela.

The relationship between the communications media and the exercise of power has been studied by Starr. The development and the constitutive choices about media are understandable in the political framework since politics contribute to generate and transform communications.Constitutive choices about communications, in the approach I take in this book, fall into three broad areas: first, the general legal and normative rules concerning such issues as free expression, access to information, privacy, and intellectual property. second, the specific design of communications media, the structure of networks, and organization of industries. and third, institutions related to the creation of intangible and human capital –that is, education, research, and innovation.
