They were trying to eliminate the voice of the opposition, the New York Times reported.
Once word spread to the international community, the leaders in the Honduras backed down. The stations will resume at the end of the week, they said.
There is no question here. Just recognize that freedom of speech is a right that not everyone has. While we may be divided by politics in America, we have the right to gather and speak and debate.
