Chavismo might have been able to silence temporarily Tal Cual and El Nacional on Venezuelan crime but oversea the famous El Nacional picture has revealed quite a naked emperor.
Maria Anastasia O'Grady focus on the crime wave on an electoral point of view, reminding the world that electing a responsible government that will actually rule for the better of ALL in the country is a tough task, though the latest crime wave might help along in wakign up people.
If the WSJ is more of an OpEd piece, Simon Romero comes up at the New York Times with a complete and detailed article that includes a great video, the cover front of El Nacional, a reference to artist Onechot being threatened and the latest. He delves in detail on what is common knowledge among the informed people in Venezuela: that are our crime rte is now worse than anyone else, including Iraq, by far. he also delves on who is the most affected by that crime wave, by far: the poorer classes, the ones that supposedly chavismo was going to favor. We have to admire the work of Romero, writing one of the most demolishing article on chavismo ever written, just by narrating recent facts. Impressive!
So, what's next Hugo? Are you going to have the front page of the New York Times today censored?
UPDATE: the New York Times piece is already translated in Spanish in part at Tal Cual ! Goes to tell you.
