The horrible news coming out of socialist Venezuela is an embarrassment to news room socialists.
Socialist Venezuela is featuring starvation, the result of economic planning. Children are being hit the hardest. But the Western media is not interested in covering the Venezuela crisis and doesn’t want to viewers to think about the implications of socialism. They’d rather praise Millennials for supporting Bernie Sanders and give a platform to other American socialists. Lifezette reports, “Media Yawn at Venezuela’s Spiraling, Socialist Nightmare.”
Out of approximately 50,000 total evening news stories on ABC, CBS and NBC combined in the last four years, just 25 have covered the ongoing crisis in socialist Venezuela, according to a Media Research Center study published Tuesday.
“Yet the Big Three evening newscasts have tried to pretend this crisis does not exist, offering virtually no coverage as the situation has deteriorated over the past four years,” MRC Research Analyst Mike Ciandella wrote.
“The networks have also been reluctant to attach the ‘socialist’ label to Venezuela’s government, and have utterly failed to criticize liberal politicians and celebrities who have praised the Chávez and Maduro regimes,” Ciandella added.
