President Maduro has announced that the government will henceforth produce a “Newscast of Truth” to be carried, en cadena, twice daily.
Just to spell this out for any newbies out there: that means every TV channel and every radio station in Venezuela will be forced to pre-empt its programming, just stop what they’re doing, and carry the same government propaganda broadcast, live, unedited, at the same time. Twice a day.
Good thing that’s not creepy and Orwellian, huh?Caracas Chronicles is 100% reader-supported. Support independent Venezuelan journalism by making a donation.
