As Venezuelan ruler Nicolas Maduro struggled against violent protests against him, the U.S. based company General Motors had its means of production seized by the socialist regime Thursday. “General Motors tonight saying it's been forced to suspend its operation in Venezuela after the government there confiscated its factory,” announced ABC Anchor David Muir during World News Tonight, “GM forced to lay off 2700 workers, but vowing to fight this tonight.” Sadly, CBS was the only network not to report the theft.
On NBC Nightly News, Anchor Lester Holt reported that “today General Motors said it will halt operations in Venezuela after the government seized one of its car plants.” “Anti-government protesters clashing in the streets with police as the country teeters on the brink both politically and economically,” he continued.
“Venezuela is at a breaking point,” declared NBC’s Jacob Rascon at the start of his report, “Thousands taking to the streets yet again today after weeks of violent protests in the capital city of Caracas.” According to Rascon, “More than 400 arrested, at least seven people killed.”
