"Ten ballot questions devised by leftist President Rafael Correa in what his opponents call a blatant power grab all appeared headed for victory Sunday, albeit by modest and even slim margins.

Two of the most controversial would bar owners of news media from having other commercial interests and create a government media oversight panel." (05/08/11)
