In fairness to the lefties, i didnt see anything at all on this in the UK media frontpages, wheras the venezula situation was pretty prominent.
I don't watch a lot of TV so its possible the TV news here was all over it but its pretty suspicious that we see so much reporting on situations where america has an agenda, but nothing when the US is disinterested.
So sure, its not strange that ecuador is so ignored by western media but why was Venezuela so heavily reported on when it is similarly irrelevant to the lives of most UK Citizens?
One thing I was wondering about is: why is the far-Left (and Russia?)
Ha, anything PR brings up is coincidentally a large foreign policy talking point in Russian politics. Not that there's anything wrong with it. I'm waiting to see if Russia's foot is somewhere here as well, but then again, maybe it's just good propaganda.
PR lives in Russia, so when something is prominent on the Russian news circuit, and barely mentioned on the US/UK/EU news circuit, he comes to this forum to see if his impression of it being ignored is accurate for those of us living in US/UK/Western Europe. Makes sense to me.
And yes of course Russia has an interest in calling the US out on its rampant hypocrisy. None of that makes the point any less valid.
Just as the fact that lots of people in the USA hate Russia doesn't devalue points made by USicans about Putin being a terrible kleptocrat.
Just because someone is biased, doesn't make them wrong.
