The headline reads, Morales says Bolivia to launch state newspaper, and a TV station, both bankrolled by Iran and Venezuela.

Noticias 24 also had the news, and quoted Evo Morales (my translation),

"We will have our own television channel, that's also a lot of money that we have to invest, and this channel wil serve to incorporate the state network to inform and educate."
Evo also said the paper will counterbalance the local media, even when the Bolivian government already runs
a news agency, a television station, a weekly paper and a network of radio stations.
Morales, who visited Iran last September, decided last month to no longer hold press conferences for the local media. which he considers "biased".

Iranian and Venezuelan financing, however, meets his criteria.
