Link of the day: Dec 7 2015: Primer on American use of innuendo to damn political opponents, when trying to bring about regime change
A fascinating insight provided by Mark Weisbrot
Co-director, Center for Economic and Policy Research, of Washington, D.C. in an
article entitled Hillary
Clinton and a Venezuelan Murder Mystery: Who Killed Luis Manuel Díaz? has been published recently by Huffington Post. The most
remarkable revelation in this article is the reluctance of the English-language
media to publish the now-accepted version that this Opposition leader was on
trial for implication in a previous murder, and was killed in a gangland killing connected to that
murder. That Hillary Clinton made an instant judgment insinuating that the
government was responsible for the killing immediately became the version
accepted around the world. Read the article here.
