AT&T under pressure to defy Maduro's censors [telecom]

MIAMI (AP) - Venezuela's opposition together with the Trump administration is looking to recruit AT&T in its fight to oust Nicolás Maduro. State Department officials met in December with from AT&T executives to discuss how they can work together to disarm Maduro's propaganda machine. Maduro's opponents want AT&T's DirecTV unit to restore a number of channels it was required to take down from its lineup. International channels including CNN en Espanol fill an important void for information inside Venezuela after a number of broadcasters critical of the government disappeared from the airwaves. But forcing AT&T to do the political bidding of Maduro's foes could lead to retaliation.
