After weeks of threatening to revoke CNN’s press credentials and ability to report from Venezuela, the country’s president, Nicolas Maduro has instead agreed to sit down for an interview with the network. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour will speak with the beleaguered president today. The interview starts airing today on CNN’s networks and platforms, and will air in full on CNN International’s “Amanpour” tomorrow at 2pmET and 5pmET.
Last month, Maduro threatened to pull the plug on CNN if it did not “rectify” its coverage of anti-government protests. A day later, he said the network’s crew could stay.
