Random chavista paper makes stuff up, Juan gets tangled up

Allegory of Juan this morning

So Juan got a bit tangled in the weird round of allegations and denials about the Venezuelan football team’s supposed – but false – troubles getting a U.S. visa. It’s of no import.

The real story here – far from new, but made more plainly visible than is usual today – is that Chavista-rag Ciudad Caracas just plain made up the original story out of whole cloth and AVN ran with it without checking. (And, on their heels, Globovision, media mundo, and Juan.) Didn’t they stop to think how easy it would be to prove wrong? Are any neurons firing over there?
