‘Resistance’ Media Side With Trump to Promote Coup in Venezuela

ALAN MACLEOD—After winning re-election in 2018, President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela was recently sworn in for a second term.

This has spurred the Venezuelan right wing onto the streets to try to force Maduro out of office, leading to the deaths of 14 people in the first two nights of clashes between large pro- and anti-government demonstrations.

His producer at the time, Jeff Cohen ( of Fairness and Accuracy in Media), told this interviewer ( on my internet radio show) that NBC, owned at the time by General Electric.

‘Most cops support Yellow Vest protesters over Macron’ – France police union chief to RT

Says a French policeman: “Most of us back the Gilets Jaunes [Yellow Vests], because we will be directly affected by any rise in fuel prices,”Alexandre Langlois, the secretary-general of the VIGI police union, told RT France from their studio in Paris. “Most of us can’t live where we work, because it is either too expensive, or we would be arresting our next-door neighbors, so we drive significant distances.”
