CNN and other corporate media clearly have been engaging in a conspiracy to undermine the government of Venezuela (either to obtain its natural resources or to promote defense contracts for their shareholders), and its quite telling that the network attempted to correct the following false statement;

Clearly, CNN went out of its way to avoid stating that there was no election in Venezuela in January (as that would undermine their support of Guadio’s coup). Truly shameful to see corporate media engaging in political cover for the US military industrial complex.
