The biggest surprise is that CNN has journalists.

That headline is a farking trainwreck.

I think that's just a translation error.  The reality is, the Venezuelans kicked Honey boo boo out of the country.

The only reason CNN was allowed to stay in Baghdad after the first gulf war was because they agreed to Saddam's demand that they sanitize news about him.

Look up your owned damned citation.  It happened.

If the Venezuelan government has nothing to hide, then it has nothing to fear.

Oh, I dunno.  I've heard that it depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is.

I thought CNN got out of the news biz and went for infotainment

I don't know about anybody else, but if I was in Venezuela right now, and not Venezuelan, I'd be getting TFO.

Sure in general. But this thread has degenerated quickly into a discussion of the headline and the suckiness of CNN. I'm quite surprised.

Fark does have at least one bona-fide Marxist who will support the Chavistas no matter what.

This is one of those situations where it's hard to figure out who to root for.

If CNN in Venezuela is anything like the vapid lowest-common-denominator, bootlicking-stenographer-to-power American CNN, then good.

But: the last time I was outside of North America, I discovered that CNN International is significantly better than the trash that passes for a news network in mainland US and Canada.

Yeah, except that the army has basically shut down the borders.  It's looking very bad, and it's getting maybe 1/4 of the press that Ukraine is.

THIS

You know, there was a time that Fark would be full of the hateful, offensive support for the uppity darkies in Our Backyard. Fortunately, that time seems to be gone.

There was a time in the history of this country that when these assholes would be "elected" by  majority of the shines in these countries we would step in and BOOM! HEADSHOT.

Hopefully, those days will return, and we as Americans can sleep safely in our beds..

OK, good to know.  Perhaps the protesters should try crossing the streams.

Some cable providers in the US carry CNN International as well. Att U-Verse actually carries CNN International and now BBC World News as well. The difference between those two and the trash that passes for "news" in this country is remarkable.

And no need to trash the networks in Canada, they're still a notch above the American networks (at least CBC is).

It's not a Russia vs. West proxy conflict so it isn't as sexy as the one in the Ukraine is.

I know almost nothing about the CBC, but I think they deserve at least some respect for airing AsapSCIENCE videos during the Olympics.  I can't imagine NBC or any other major American network doing something like that.
