Whatever Happened To The Revolution?

There's something missing in the mainstream media's Venezuela coverage:
The major networks dedicated no news stories to the advancement of Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro’s powers within Venezuela, including in November 2013 when then-socialist controlled National Assembly giving Maduro “emergency” powers, which permitted him to bypass the National Assembly and rule by decree, or in May 2017 when the socialist-dominated Supreme Court ruled to strip power from the opposition-lead Congress.

MRC noted that human rights groups Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch made condemnations of human rights violations in places such as Syria, and Venezuela. Of the 17 times the Human Rights Watch, and 14 times Amnesty International were mentioned by the networks over the four-year period, the “condemnations of Venezuela” by the human rights groups “have gone completely untouched” by the media, said the MRC.

Furthermore, of the 25 stories dedicated to Venezuela by the three networks, only seven of the stories mentioned socialism’s involvement. “ABC World News” never mentioned socialism at all, “CBS Evening News” mentioned it once, and “NBC Nightly News” mentioned it six times.
Don't mention the socialism...
