NYTimes has already changed the story so that the claim about the Venezuelan government controlling TV and radio has disappeared. 

In recent years, the audience share of private terrestrial broadcasters has fallen from around 80% in 2000 to around 60% in 2010, with the bulk of the lost audience going to cable and satellite broadcasters, which increased audience share from around 17% to around 33% over the same period. State television’s share increased from around 2% to 5%, not including the “cadenas.”[2]

The bullshit Times article relies on a single source, a Venezuelan “comedian” named Redondo, and makes zero effort to corroborate anything he says.

“You get jailed there because of tweets.”

Says Redondo. Is it true? You’d think the New York Fucking Times would be interested in that answer in the age of fake news and unceasing journalistic scandals, but…

““If Cabello calls you on [his TV] show,” Redondo said, “it’s a sign: Go after him. If he pronounces your name, you have to leave [Venezuela] basically.””

New York Times makes zero effort to corroborate ANYTHING claimed by this so-called comedian. He’s given a giant column essentially to claim whatever he likes because he’s against the government there. This is cheap propaganda.

“Redondo says” reminds me a hell of a lot of “Syrian activists say,” their lies stove-piped onto the front pages since 2011. This is what US regime-change propaganda looks and smells like.

Thirty-two million people in Venezuela, and the flagship news organization of the American empire couldn’t find anyone to corroborate anything claimed by some unknown “comic.”
