“smugnorant”

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.”

MSNBC Yet Again Broadcasts Blatant Lies, This Time About Bernie Sanders’ Opening Speech, and Refuses to Correct Them

MSNBC IS A DISHONEST POLITICAL OPERATION,not a news outlet. It systematically and deliberately refuses to adopt a defining attribute of a news outlet: a willingness to acknowledge factual errors, correct them, and apologize. That they not only allow their lies to stand uncorrected but reward their employees who do it most frequently – especially when those lies are directed at adversaries of the Democratic Party – proves that they are, first and foremost, a political arm of the Democratic establishment.

Moving beyond the current, 20th-century approach to messaging will require better coordination with “civilian agencies and other civilian entities,” as well as new technologies designed to “isolate and identify disinformation,” Knaggs said.

DoD Officials: Irregular Warfare, Information Ops Key to Winning Next War

[Andrew Knaggs, deputy assistant secretary of defense for Special Operations and Combating Terrorism] said the U.S. military needs to reframe “irregular warfare as the key pillar for a proactive campaign to fight and win in an era of adversarial competition,” an approach that will likely favor controlled messaging and other influencing tools rather than counter-terrorism missions.
