Standoff in Venezuela

Venezuela expert Steve Ellner explains the deceptiveness of the mainstream media’s reporting on the country’s political turmoil.

Venezuela has been rocked in recent weeks by almost daily protests and counter-protests, as right-wing opponents of socialist President Nicolas Maduro seek to bring down his government.
