Skip to comments.Some comeuppance for Univision's Jorge Ramos? Detained in Venezuela by Maduro
Posted on 02/26/2019 6:53:49 AM PST by SeekAndFind
Univision's star anchorman, Jorge Ramos, got a taste of what a real dictator is over in Caracas, when, after showing Venezuela's Nicolás Maduro a cell phone video of starving Venezuelans eating out of a garbage truck, found himself and his television crew shoved in a dark room for two and a half hours in detention, only to be released with their expensive television equipment and interview material stolen.
Here's the Washington Post report of what went down:
Journalist Jorge Ramos and his Univision team were detained at Nicolás Maduro's presidential palace in the Venezuelan capital Monday, reportedly because Maduro didn't like the questions the reporters were asking him during an interview.
The group was freed shortly after, said Daniel Coronell, Univision's president for news in the United States. Coronell said Venezuelan government officials confiscated the journalists' equipment.
Ramos, in a phone interview with Univision after he was released, said the interview with Maduro lasted about 17 minutes.
"He didn't like the things we were asking him about the lack of democracy in Venezuela, about torture, political prisoners, the humanitarian crisis that they were living," he said.
But the breaking point came, Ramos said, after he showed Maduro a video of people eating from a garbage truck.
Here's Marco Rubio's tweet of the actual video:
This is the video that upset the dictator @NicolasMaduro.@jorgeramosnews recorded it on his cell phone in the streets of Caracas. When he played it for Maduro during the interview the dictator got angry & detained him & his crew in a dark room for over 2 hours. https://t.co/SwM6AKCeX2— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) February 26, 2019

Couldn’t have happened to a better guy.
Ramos ran his loud mouth in the wrong country.
Embrace the suck, Jorge.
LOL. Good stuff. Shut the boy up for a while. He’s got a big mouth.
Must be a real blow to Whore-Gay.
How long before Ramos blames Trump?
Maduro is a real tyrant but theres no chance Ramos will actually learn anything from the experience. I bet hell blame Maduros behavior on President Trump.
Ramos is a Commie scum. He’ll continue defending Maduro. He’s a Useful Idiot.
Now will he want Trump to get his sorry ass out?................good luck with that, pendejo!................
Wonder when he’s heading to NK for an in depth review of that country?
And he’ll be changing his long held view of Maduro’s brand of socialism as a result of this experience, right?
Hahaha. I’ll be holding my breath. Not.
He’ll come back and give a dozen interviews on every MSM network; raise his profile and visibility, and yield NOTHING in terms of his goofball views.
Well, Jorge gets a taste of what America would be like if his ideas took root. Tough noogies, dipstick.
Hey Jorge, this is what a REAL war on journalists looks like.
Jorge may be an irritating anti-Trump jerk, but he isn’t a fool. He knows Trump is relentless; the pressure he is exerting on Maduro will eventually push him out of power, after which Jorge will make a return visit to his new hispanic fan base in Venezuela. Jorge is playing a long game to benefit himself.
Pls see my related comment #15.
Leftists believe if they protect and feed the crocodile, they will be the last ones eaten. It always takes them by surprise when their adopted socialist predators fail to show even that much gratitude.
They should have kept him.
We don’t want him back.
But do that to Trump and he responds by calling you a “bad person” and suddenly he’s the worst dictator on Earth.
