Washington Post Anti-Bolivarian Propaganda

by Stephen Lendman

Media scoundrel misinformation and bald-faced lies betray their readers.

Western media scoundrels waged war on Chavez. They did so throughout his tenure. Managed news misinformation substituted for truth and full disclosure.

Chavez is gone. Misreporting continues. Post editors march in lockstep with other media scoundrels. Doing so betrays their readers.

On March 16, they headlined " Free speech under fire in Latin America ," saying:

Chavez "may be dead, but the offensive he led against democratic institutions in Venezuela and across Latin America has not slackened." 

"In fact, it may be accelerating, especially with regard to independent media."

Fact check

Venezuela's the hemisphere's most open society. America's pales by comparison. Free expression is cherished. It's constitutionally mandated.

Venezuela's Law of Social Responsibility affirms it. It does so without censorship. It promotes responsible programming and journalism. 

It respects civil and human rights. It advances cultural values. It encourages active citizen participation.

It tolerates dissent. It enforces acceptable media standards. Violators face fines. Promoting coups, war, public disorder, crime, or other socially disruptive acts risks temporary or longer-term license suspensions.

Venezuelan media giants challenge the law. They do so irresponsibly. Sometimes they go too far. Doing so is lawless. It compromises national security. 

During Chavez's tenure, Venezuelan media changed dramatically. In 1998, broadcasting included 331 commercial FM stations.
