The Mexican television station MVS has sued journalist Carmen Aristegui and Random House for non-material damages related to the content of Aristegui's book “La Casa Blanca de Peña Nieto.”
Aristegui said that MVS is suing her and her publisher because the book’s prologue speaks about censorship by MVS.
“It is very serious threat,” she said. “They are trying to prevent us from talking about the prologue on the radio, on television or in lectures.”
Aristegui was an anchor for the MVS show “MVS Noticias” from 2009 to 2015, when she was fired. She said that she was fired because she was investigating the Casa Blanca scandal involving President Enrique Peña Nieto and his wife Angélica Rivera.
