26. How Reuters Converts ...
How Reuters Converts the Largest Economic Growth of Latin America into Bad News

This past April 22 the economic news about Venezuela was the International Monetary Funds revelation that the country was heading for an economic growth rate of between 9 and 10% for 2004, which would situate Venezuela as the country with the largest economic growth of Latin America.

In order to say this, Reuters puts its headline like this: IMF Says Venezuela Will Not be Able to Maintain Current Economic Growth in 2005

Without a doubt, this figure is explained with the recuperation from the oil industry strike of last year. Nonetheless, the Reuters teletypists did not remember this when they intensely distributed the bad economic figures of 2003.

Without a doubt, these are surprising commentaries to accompany the news of an economic growth of 8.8%. Imagine what they would say if the Chavez government had suffered bad economic news.


Which just goes to show what kind of job the western media is doing re:Venezuela.
