Carlos Fernando Chamorro
Arguably Nicaragua’s leading journalist, Director of the virtual publication Confidencial , and of
the TV Talk Show ‘Esta Semana’ / ‘Esta Noche’, Chamorro was during the 1980s the
Director of the Sandinista daily ‘Barricada’. However, he broke with the Sandinistas
when the authoritarian forces became more prominent after 1990, being today
the most harsh critic of President Daniel Ortega. He and his fellow journalists
have been the victims of the increasing repression in the country, among other
reasons for criticizing the government for its disregard for the Covid-19
