Venezuela may not be getting much news coverage in the mainstream, but I've been updating you at every step for the last several years.
Now that Venezuela is on the verge of a total government collapse we're starting to see the media rewrite history.
Last week, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow committed what I believe to be journalistic malpractice when she implied that the current protests happening in Venezuela are a result of U.S. sanctions and a report that the Venezuelan government paid half a million dollars to fund Trumps inauguration event.
Her "reporting" highlights just how low our media has decided in the 21st century. Rachel didn't just get the story wrong. She deliberately misrepresented the truth and declared lies to be facts. All to create a reality that didn't exist.
It's the start of a coordinated effort to rewrite the history of Venezuela's fall, brought on by the socialist policies Ms. Maddow, and her ilk promote.
Another reason to make sure you never miss an episode of this show.
