Ecuadorian president threatens to force papers to go digital

There's one country whose newspaper's may be going all-digital by force.

Ecuador President Rafael Correa is threatening to force Ecuadorian newspapers to go digital in order to save trees, he tweeted Monday.

"Now the big 'environmentalists' are the newspaper businesses. Well, if it goes to a popular referndum, we also propose the newspapers go solely digital to save paper and avoid so much indiscriminate cutting of trees," Correa tweeted. "We'll see who is who."

The combative president announced last week that he is asking the Ecuadorian Congress to back drilling in Yasuni. a biodeiverse Amazon preserve.

"Do not be fooled. There are groups that are politicizing the Yasuní-ITT to finally 'beat' the government, and manipulate the young, especially," Correa tweeted.
