Aggravated Journalism

Lina Ron died following a Xanax overdose. The rumors that had been circulating to this effect were confirmed for CodigoVenezuela.com by a doctor on the scene.

Imagine that: an actual Venezuelan journalist actually working a story confirm an actually relevant dato!

I don’t know what’s more surprising: that, or the fact that Ron was taking a pill normally reserved to the panic-stricken.

Kudos to Milagros Socorro for her scoop.
