[OP-ED]: La verdad se ha vuelto inútil en Venezuela

 04/26/2017 - 12:00
 “Cinco personas han sido heridas de bala en incidentes separados cercanos a las protestas en circunstancias poco claras. Una de las víctimas se dice que fue herida por un opositor desde un rascacielos, aunque la afiliación política del victimario aún no se ha confirmado”, añadió la periodista. “Nueve manifestantes opositores parecen haber muerto como resultado de sus propias acciones (al menos nueve se electrocutaron cuando saqueaban una panadería)”.

La crisis en Venezuela es grave y complicada, lo cual hace la enfermiza y excluyente obsesión con ese país del secretario general de la OEA, Luis Almagro, no solo extraña y contraproducente, sino totalmente inaceptable.

“Five people have been shot in separate incidents near protests but under unclear circumstances. One of these victims was shot by an alleged opposition supporter from a high-rise building, although the perpetrator’s political affiliation is yet to be confirmed,” Bothroyd Rojas added. “Nine protesters appear to have died as a result of their own actions (at least nine were electrocuted in the recent looting of a bakery).”

The crisis in Venezuela is grave and complicated, which makes the OAS’ Secretary General Luis Almagro’s consuming obsession with Venezuela not only strange and counterproductive, but totally inadmissible.

Libertad de prensa a la mexicana. Es una manera triste, cínica quizás, de referirse a la interminable matanza de periodistas en el país azteca.  Perpetrada con total impunidad, todo indica que hay una cacería inmisericorde de comunicadores sociales al sur de la frontera.
