Media silence flabbergasts/enrages Venezuelan freedom-lovers

sean6

The level of disengagement on display (by the media) is deeply shocking...Venezuela’s domestic media blackout is joined by a parallel international blackout, one born not of censorship but of disinterest and inertia. It’s hard to express the sense of helplessness you get looking through these pages and finding nothing. Venezuela burns; nobody cares.

In Feb. 1957 about 20 Cubans in the Sierra mountains were in armed rebellion against the Batista regime. This made the front pages of the New York Times for almost a week running.

But the Caracas Chronicles notes that even in light of the conflagarations involving tens of thousands of Venezuelans last night: "As of 11 a.m. this morning, the New York Times World Section has…nothing."

Cuban-American "hard-liners" see nothing unusual here and can easily explain the issue:

You see, Venezuela is under the complete control of the world's top mainstream media bamboozler/manipulators (the Castro regime.) This is their doing.

And if you think silence is bad--just wait 'till the media trots out their Venezuela "experts"!
