De Lima is Out of Cadena Capriles. (Owner Still In Closet)

David-de-LimaDavid de Lima, the cartoon-bad-guy political commissar sent to keep Cadena Capriles’s employees in line, is reportedly out of a job, after having taken a bull’s approach to china shop management in the newsroom over the couple of months he lasted at the helm.

No word on who is to replace him. And no word yet on who is to decide who is to replace him, either.

Because, let’s not forget: even though Venezuela has clear laws on who can and who can’t own a publishing business, the identity of the person/people who bought Cadena Capriles has never been disclosed. Amazingly, it hasn’t leaked reliably, either.

We just don’t know.
