I think it is very good effort for Journalist in Ecuador.
While the bill has been promoted as a means to democratize ownership of and access to media outlets.
As per legislation found that several of its provisions could seriously limit free expression in Ecuador.
The provisions prohibiting content that "directly incites violence, illegal actions, human trafficking, exploitation, sexual abuse, or promotes war and national, racial or religious hatred" are also broad enough to be wide open to interpretation by an executive branch that has used various means to silence critical journalists in the past.
hope that every thing gonna fine for everyone.
