The New York Times reported on Tuesday that a top State Department official overseeing Venezuela’s negotiations with socialist President Nicolas Maduro’s government had “reached new understandings” with the communist regime.
The Times, however, did not offer these new understandings. Instead the article offered up the most laughable explanation possible for the State Department’s actions.
The Times’ story was written by a reporter named Steven Lee Myers who specializes in Latin America. In his articles for his native newspaper and the Times, he was a staunch defender of the Venezuelan government. He also was an enthusiastic supporter of Hugo Chavez.
In his piece for the Times, Myers wrote, “For the United States to do anything but work with President Nicolas Maduro, or to get between the two, is to court disaster.”
He continued with, “It would be far more catastrophic to allow Mr. Maduro to win power and become the leader of Venezuela than to leave the Bolivarian Republic with Mr. Maduro in power.”
The Times ignored the fact that the Venezuelan people have rejected Maduro in every election. In a March 2016 poll, they voted out the socialist government of Nicolas Maduro with 68 percent of the vote.
It is the American public that has rejected Maduro. The American public has rejected the socialist dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro.
Myers’ anti-Maduro reporting was not limited to the New York Times and he was, more recently, a strong supporter of the president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa.
Myers was also a strong supporter of the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power. Myers was a constant defender of the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power.
Myers was one of the so-called “Never Trump” people who was never a consistent Trump supporter. Myers, himself, was pro-Democratic Party and pro-Hillary Clinton.
But, in order to promote his communist and anti-American views as he did with the New York Times, he was willing to be dishonest.
He wrote that “The United States has been a steadfast supporter of the Venezuelan government’s struggle for democracy
