Mainstream press: Very Bad Man Maduro is blocking precious medicine from entering Venezuela. Here's a picture of the blocked bridge.

Liberals: mmhhmm ohh? Hmmm wow
Actual journalists in real time: that bridge has been closed for 3 years, here's satellite images proving that this is a hoax designed to create the conditions for US intervention into Venezuela.

Liberals...... 🙈
Mainstream press three weeks after the story finished circulating: oooops looks like this bridge was closed for years and the Red Cross had tried to warn us that Trump would stage aid theatrics. Anyway super sorry won't happen again 🙃
NYT: Maduro supporters lit aid trucks on FIRE things are very scary here wow dang check out these scary pics!👀

Liberals: ohhhh man oh wow oh no
Journalists in real time: no... No stop. The evidence strongly shows that the right wing opposition lit those trucks on fire themselves, again... Because they are trying to create support for US intervention.

Liberals and the press: 🙈🙈🙈🙈
The NYT after the story finished circulating: ah ummmm so you're not gonna believe this but we messed up. The aid trucks on fire was just more pageantry that we willingly propagated. Oof suuuuper sorry guys. Yeesh.
Capitalist press: Very Awful Bad Man Maduro is corruptly BUYING the support of his base with social programs. When will someone, anyone, put a stop to this MADNESS!?

Liberals: mmmmmm are following this Venezuela story? This Maduro guy is bad news bro let me send you a link.
Actual journalists: .... Wait what? It's not "buying support" when what you're actually referring to is wealth distribution, health care, and funding community centers. That's just... Maduro doing what people elected him to do?! Y'all understand that right?

Liberals: lol no
The NYT: hey y'all sorry about all the goofs lately. Anyway here's an op-ed featuring a Venezuelan woman with a German last name who lives in a rich neighborhood of New York and she's here to ask Trump to please bomb Venezuela. You love this shit.

Liberals: 😥 we have to
Journalists, again: heyyyy NYT you weirdly forgot to disclose to your readership that your op-ed author is literally working with Juan Guaidó and has a massive stake in pushing for a right wing coup. Like, did you not know that or?

NYT: oh my GOSH dangggggitttt what!?!?!
Mainstream press: this Very Good Man Juan Guaidó is a *~centrist social democrat.~* You like that term right? Well good because that's Guaidó for ya. He's basically Bernie! Also he loves baseball and salsa!

Liberals: oooh? Nice okay nice.
Journalists: we're taking about baseball? wait no... Guaidó's party is literally on the far right and their support comes from the whiter and wealthier Venezuelans. He wants to invite Western oil interests to siphon the nations wealth?!

Liberals: hmm. Maduro Bad. Guaio Good.
Meanwhile in a cafe in Portland, a business grad student who, until a few weeks ago, has never had more than a passing thought about Venezuela and couldn't point to it on a map is lecturing his date on the politics of Venezuela and the need to oust their corrupt *~regime~*
I should add that this literally happened to one of my friends and she had to stop the guy with
First their power grid goes down and now this.. Super weird how Venezuela's infrastructure just starts dramatically failing during the same two month period that America suddenly claims to gives a fuck about the country's welfare.

Don't worry everyone, we all know that the US has amazing infrastructure AND that we have a sterling record of sharing it with countries we occupy or inva- I mean, liberate! Just look at Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Vietnam, Honduras, Puerto Rico, you get it.
I can't wait until 30 years from now when they finally declassify their shit from 2019 and the NYT is going to nonchalantly publish a story line "oh looks like the US was running some covert programs in VE." And they'll leave out all the ways they helped at the time.
Because somehow when they hired their "Venezuela Pointman" and it was a dude literally convicted of genocide and lying to Congress under oath, that wasn't a sign that maybe just maybe they don't actually care about the people in VE and they're leveraging their suffering for gain.
Okay I'm done adding to this now. Probably.
