In the last 7 days I’ve found new stories about Venezuela, Nicaragua, Columbia and Mexico which are absolutely MSM propaganda ( read State Dept.lies/spin? ) containing outright lies.
The offenders include The Daily Beast, CNN, MSNBC and, of course, the AP. Reuters and Bloomberg aren’t any better, really.
There are other news forums/aggregators like Democratic Underground which perpetuate misinformation. Progressives at DU have their hands full, without a doubt. And, who the hell knows what is going on inside regional and city news outlets. Their bullshit meters are all down, oddly enough, at the same time. Who’d of thunk it could happen here?
Here’s the deal; all the above mentioned countries had free and fair elections ( whether you like the results or not ) with international monitoring. The Carter Center was in the mix, too. The U.N. had observers in these countries, as well. Better than American elections, often.
Were there voting irregularities? Corruption? Yes and possibly. But we know there was recently in the Honduras and previously in Columbia, etc. What went on in Argentina 2 years ago? What is going on in Brazil with Lulu? Soft coups abound? Who’s zooming who, here? American interference? R U crazy! Must be a Socialist!
HELLO-these countries are not dictatorships!!!
Neither is Bolivia or El Salvador, for that matter.
Why do many countries on this planet absolutely hate dealing with agents, agencies and gov’t officials from the United States?
The better question is; why wouldn’t they, in asking honestly.
