And yet El Universal has a strange characteristic: it does not publish a proper editorial. Other papers such as El Nacional have their daily editorials as happens with papers in the US. And one has its editorial as a cover page, as its main draw, in Tal Cual. But El Universal has not published an editorial in years, that I remember, anyway. This has changed this week as El Universal published two editorials "Nuestra Tribuna", on its front page (in red in the picture next, for today's editorial; English version here).
It is a refection of the gravity of the situation in Venezuela that El Universal goes out on a limb and starts its editorial with the following sentence, risking the wrath of the regime:
El Vicepresidente Ejecutivo de la República no es un funcionario de elección popular.
The vice president of the republic is not an elected public servant.
