Ecuadorian president threatens to force papers to go digital

There’s one country whose newspaper’s may be going all-digital by force.

Ecuador President Rafael Correa is threatening to force Ecuadorian newspapers to go digital in order to save trees, he tweeted Monday.

“Now the big ‘environmentalists’ are the newspaper businesses. Well, if it goes to a popular referndum, we also propose the newspapers go solely digital to save paper and avoid so much indiscriminate cutting of trees,” Correa tweeted. “We’ll see who is who.”

The combative president announced last week that he is asking the Ecuadorian Congress to back drilling in Yasuni. a biodeiverse Amazon preserve.

“Do not be fooled. There are groups that are politicizing the Yasuní-ITT to finally ‘beat’ the government, and manipulate the young, especially,” Correa tweeted.

    Going all digital is good, but only if there is free high speed wifi everywhere you might want to read a newspaper.

    Considering the way left wingers do things, el Presidente Correa will put a stop to paper newspapers right away then waste 2 years thinking about the wifi system, then take 10 years and spend 5 times more than the original cost estimate to set it up.

    Then it will be run by gov’t wankers who don’t know what they are doing and don’t care, so the wifi system will be down or too slow to use most of the time.

    So the poor down-trodden wifi worker’s union will go on strike saying they can’t keep the wifi system working unless they get higher wages.
