Gran Hermano está transmitiendo

Jonathan Gruber must be green with envy at what Venezuela has at its house intellectuals' disposal;
A new media mogul has emerged in Venezuela: the state.
Despite an economic crisis that is bringing public finances to its knees, the self-proclaimed Bolivarian Revolution controls 14 television channels, a global satellite network (TeleSur), four newspapers – soon to be five – and dozens of radio stations.
The mission of this media empire is to “promote the government’s actions, support socialist values and drive forward the revolution,” as worded in the executive’s recent 2015 budget proposal.
And the government has plans to spend even more--billions of Bolivars--on this mission. Which is in addition to harassing opposition media into self-censoring itself.
