FAIR v. Scoundrel Media Misreporting on Venezuela


FAIR exposes media lies and distortions.

by Stephen Lendman

Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) is a "national media watch group." It's an "anti-censorship organization."

It features "neglected news stories." It "defend(s) working journalists when they are muzzled."

It prioritizes truth and full disclosure. Since 1986, it's held media scoundrel feet to the fire. 

It exposes their managed news misinformation. It does so in their own words. It hoists them on their own petard.

" What's Wrong with the News ," it asked? Democratic freedom requires independent journalism. People have a right to know. Media scoundrels support wealth, power, privilege and dominance.

They're "cozy with the economic and political powers they should be watchdogging." They support what demands condemnation. Freedom demands much better.

FAIR reports regularly on major world and national issues. It discusses what people most need to know. It covers Venezuela and Chavez. It exposes media lies and distortions.

For the past month, Chavez has been recovering from complicated cancer surgery. It's his fourth in 18 months. He's getting superb care in Havana. Media scoundrels don't quit.

On January 12, The New York Times headlined "Venezuela Warns Opposition Against Vocal Dissent."

False! Venezuela is the hemisphere's most open society. Free expression is cherished. America pales by comparison. The Times claims otherwise. 

"Top government officials are threatening to take action against opposition governors," it said. 

Vice President Nicolas Maduro's comments were twisted. He warned against "destabilizing adventures." He said "take care not to get involved in coups."
