Attorney General: Media is generating chaos

In an opinion piece published in Últimas Noticias, the Fiscal General Luisa Ortega Díaz blamed the media for creating conditions that produce shortages.

According to Ortega Díaz: “in the last months there has been an intensification in our country of the spreading of false information which could be oriented to stimulate panic among the population by exacerbating their basic needs. The spreading of messages about supposed shortages of products of the basic diet generates panic buying and, as a consequence, shelves are emptied by people that fear being left without products.”

The theory that product’s shortages are not the consequences of government’s policies, but of people trying to destabilize the economy by using the media to generate chaos, has also been recently expressed by President Maduro and by Conatel President Pedro Maldonado.
