In this weeks episode, President Rafael Correa of Ecuador discusses with Julian whether it's always the case of good media vs corrupt government, and examines his country's relationship with the United States.

Discussion opens with the circumstances surrounding the attempted coup de tat in Ecuador in 2010, during which the president was taken hostage. From there this weeks interview moves on to the key relationships between media, money and the interests of the United states that are at play in Ecuador. Following the coup attempt, Correa embarked on a furious and controversial counter offensive on Ecuador's media. He attributes the media's influence over the events of 2010 to the vested interests of corporate power and its control of Ecuador's media, now explosively claiming corporate owners of the media "disguised as journalists, are trying to do politics, to destabilise our governments so that no change takes place in our region, for fear of losing the power they have always flaunted".
