Univision's Jorge Ramos learned just how oppressive the Venezuelan regime under President Nicolas Maduro is when he was detained at the Presidential Palace on Monday. Ramos and other Univision staffers had planned to interview Maduro at 2 p.m., but it was pushed back for hours. When they finally did have a chance to chat with Maduro, he apparently "didn't like" their questions.

After speaking with her father, Paolo Ramos learned that Maduro had forced her dad and his team into a dark room for over two hours.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) who has been one of the most vocal lawmakers to expose the Maduro regime, commended journalists like Ramos for getting the truth out there about the dictatorship. 

Freedom of the press also struggled a bit in Vietnam this week, where President Trump is embarking on his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. NBC's Peter Alexander reported how he and the rest of the White House press corps were abruptly relocated and forced to move from the hotel where Kim Jong Un was staying.

He added that for several hours he and other reporters "were holed up on the seventh floor, the elevators shut down as the North Koreans secured the property for the, as they describe him, Supreme Leader."
