In a national broadcast exclusive we speak with the President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa. He was in New York attending the United Nations Conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis and Its Impact on Development. In a wide-ranging interview, we speak with President Correa about global capitalism, his decision not to renew the license for the US military base in Manta, the $12 billion lawsuit against Chevron brought by thousands of Amazon residents for toxic oil pollution, Ecuadors relationship with Colombia, and his advice to President Obama: To learn more and come to better understand the region. And that [Obama] not let himself be taken along by the power of certain media outlets that are comprised with certain ideological fundaments. That the heroes are not necessarily heroes and the villains are not necessarily villains.
