Intervention This Week: Dissecting John Oliver's Venezuela AgitProp

Leftist Crushes John Oliver's Venezuelan Episode

by Mike Prysner - Empire Files

7 Jun 2018

The week of Venezuela's presidential election, John Oliver dedicated an ENTIRE episode of "Last Week Tonight" to the country, full of distortions and highly misleading to progressive-minded people. Responding to Oliver's major points, Empire Files producer Mike Prysner walks us through the most glaring omissions and misrepresentations.

This response is an essential guide for progressives to understand the reality in Venezuela, most common myths used to discredit the Chavez movement, and role of the US government.
