I wrote to Mark Cadiz of the CBC about an article of his that claimed Venezuelan “activists” were turning to social media because the Venezuelan government censors news about the protests.  I provided numerous examples that demonstrate how outrageously false it is to claim, as his article did, that Venezuela’s media is “censored”.  In fact, if you sample Venezuela’s media directly, it is very easy to see that it is far more open to vehement anti-government content than the media in Canada.
