Caracas Chronicles this week with puppet Nick Ripe continuing and deepening the failures of
"President Maduro has announced that the government will henceforth produce a “Newscast of Truth” to be carried, en cadena, twice daily. Just to spell this out for any newbies out there: that means every TV channel and every radio station in Venezuela will be forced to pre-empt its programming, just stop what they’re doing, and carry the same government propaganda broadcast, live, unedited, at the same time. Twice a day."Then, this hilarious allegory which, as billl notes in the comments, "overwhelms us with the humour of his depiction of Maduros errant thought processes , while at the same time hitting home hard on the absurdity of the regimes financial policies". I will be encouraging my indirect family to do all they can do to leave (like much of the local money, brains and talent already has done).
