Juan Domingo Wolf-in-Cordero's Clothing?

Juan Domingo Cordero
New Globo Owner: Juan Domingo Cordero

Twitter is abuzz with rumors that the guy who’s just bought a controlling stake in the opposition news channel Globovision, an insurance magnate by the name of José Domingo Cordero, is a fully paid up member of the bolibourgeoisie.

I don’t know that for a fact, but then, who else would buy a channel that’s just been excluded from the Digital Switchover?

Looks to me like this really is last-orders for independent broadcasting in Venezuela.

Coming just ahead of April 14th Elections, these guys really aren’t leaving anything up to chance, are they?
