Prior to the attack, the daily’s management received an anonymous threatening telephone call, during which the newspaper was accused of having an editorial stance critical of the government. After the explosion, pamphlets accusing “Así es la noticia” journalists of carrying out an anti-governmental campaign and serving the “oligarchy” were found near the daily’s offices. The pamphlets bore the signature of the MRT, a previously unknown organisation.”Así es la noticia” newspaper is headed by Ibeyise Pacheco, who is also lead-writer for “El Nacional” newspaper. On 7 January, “El Nacional” was threatened by some of President Chávez’s supporters. The two newspapers belong to the same media group.
