Television station apologizes for incorrect report

The government is accepting the apology of the TeleSur television station, but it wants a correction aired.

This is the dispute over an incorrect segment on a station program Sunday that said Costa Rica was hosting a large U.S. Navy base.

Casa Presidencial said that Carlos Roverssi Rojas, the minister of  Comunicación, received an apology Thursday from the president of the station, Patricia Villegas.  She also said that the television station founded by Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez and others would be sending a crew to do videos in Costa Rica, according to Casa Presidencial.

The minister also said that he was sending a reply seeking that the television station air its correction in the same space that it transmitted the incorrect information.
