Fidel–he of marching 18 ragamuffins in front of Herbert Matthews, having them change clothes, then march through again till Matthews reported several “columns” of rebels numbering “hundreds” each–has taught Zelaya well.
“How to play the MSM like a fidlle 101,” reads his syllabus.
In fact Zelaya upon, arrest was allowed to dress, so he put clothes OVER his pajamas. “The cameramen are almost here, Mr Zelaya!” alerted his Costa-Rican hosts.
“Ah! OK Gracias, campaneros!” whereupon he slipped off the cover clothes. “Look how these vicious golpistas booted me –didn’t have the decency to let me dress!” etc. etc….
And the media ate it up. Much of it is STILL eating it up.
