Argentina’s President Macri scores again

leave a comment »

(My new Amercan Thinker post)

Messi is the fútbol player from Argentina who plays for Barcelona, one of the world’s greatest fútbolistas and teams.   

Macri is President Macri, the center-right president, elected in early December.  

It is Macri who is dominating the front pages lately.

Yesterday, President Macri proved that he is on the right track.  He shut down the government’s support for Telesur:

The pro-business administration of Argentina’s president, Mauricio Macri, will cut its funding of a regional television network started by the Venezuelan government in 2005.

The country is pulling out of Telesur, a self-styled leftist alternative to mainstream media, because of a lack of “pluralism” and being shut out of financial decisions, the Communications Ministry in Argentina said. “Argentina was a partner prohibited from sharing our view,” Hermann Lombardi, the communications minister, said in a radio interview. Telesur was a pet project of Hugo Chávez, the former Venezuelan president, who envisioned a strong socialist voice to counteract what he perceived as unbalanced news coverage from major broadcasters like CNN’s Spanish service.

In addition to Venezuela, sponsor countries include Bolivia, Cuba, Ecuador and Nicaragua.

Relations between Argentina and Venezuela have deteriorated since Mr. Macri’s center-right government took office in December 2015. His predecessor, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, had maintained strong bonds with Mr. Chavez.

Hooray for President Macri!  

For years, the late Chávez had funded leftists activists like Telesur.    President Macri is pulling Argentina out because of a lack of “pluralism.”  In other words, Telesur was nothing but a mouthpiece for the Latin American left.   

This is why President Obama was correct in traveling to Argentina and showing support for President Macri.  We understand that the tango was Obama being tone-deaf again, but support for President Macri is in our interest.

P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.
