An Apology to Héctor Agüero
Héctor Agüero, the senior member of the National Assembly, deserves more respect than we accorded him yesterday.
The Venezuelan interwebs – including Caracas Chronicles – had a field day yesterday making fun of PSUV old-timer Héctor Agüero‘s speech at the opening of the National Assembly. It’s since been brought to our attention that Mr. Agüero suffered a stroke, which accounts for his difficult to understand speech. We apologize for the offence caused.

We’ve been able to hang on for 19 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. Now, the difficulty level was raised abruptly with the global pandemic. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) cutting personnel to avoid closing shop. This is something we’re looking to avoid at all costs, and it seems we will. But your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
