Manufacturing consent…


Colombian President Ivan Duque gave the United Nations what he called, “conclusive proof” of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s support of so-called terrorist groups during his speech to the organization’s General Assembly on Wednesday, including a photo of National Liberation Army (ELN) members the Colombian president claims was taken in Tachira, Venezuela last year.

However, according to El Colombiano, the first media outlet to fact check the president’s address, says that the claims are outright “wrong.

The author of the El Colombiano article, Javier Macias, says the photo was actually handed over “exclusively” to the newspaper in June 2015 by the nation’s “military intelligence” and that the image is of ELN members, dressed as clowns, who are giving gifts to children and helping them draw.
