gandolf, suspire, I simply suggest that the media has never reported that there is a third camp position in Venezuela and FAIR has failed also to draw attention to this situation.
The distancing of working class support for Maduro has been going a lot longer.
I understand that right now the priority is to explain the bias and prejudice of media reporting. We have witnessed this so often before, media offering government press releases as facts. We know how it tries to sway attitudes such as listing those countries that support Guaido yet limits its account of supporters to Maduro to four nations, the “suspect” countries.
But it is also incumbent upon those of us who are of a progressive inclination to also know that there is a resistance to the Venezuelan government that does not parrot a White House agenda.
We fail to get reasoned debate such as this article from the ex-foreign minister of Ecuador
Too often what we read substitute class politics for the diplomatic intrigues of Washington and Moscow. Surely socialists must push back at the over-simplifications being presented by the media. As analysts of the media, that means FAIR must also be responsible to show the wide diversity of views that exists.
