Coincidentally, it was a coincidence: on the same day, around the same time, rating agency Moody’s “downgraded” Deer Park’s rating (just two days ago, Petróleos Mexicanos announced the purchase of 50 percent of the shares; the other half of the refinery was already Mexican), And weekly The Economist – One of the ancient gospels of neoliberals – he “presented” to the Mexican media the content of his next book (Lopez Obrador, “The False Christ” and “Danger to Democracy”). And all this, in a timed fashion, just one week before the upcoming elections in Mexico, in order to “call” citizens to vote against 4T. Synchronous swimming permission.
It is, first, a rating agency that has been sued in the US – along with others of the same kind – for “fraudulent assignment of ratings” (information from Forbes), which has said nothing (at least since 2013) about Deer Park’s debt while it reserves The multinational Shell company has taken control (made decisions) over the aforementioned refinery. However, as if it were magic, overnight (that is, when Pemex made the aforementioned public announcement) “I realized” that Deer Park’s refinery debt was in “trouble.”
Second, it is a communications medium that serves the same praise and insult (always from a far-right perspective) according to the business plan you’re running. How do we forget its November 2012 cover, in which it emphasized “Mexico’s rise” due to the arrival of Enrique Peña Nieto in Los Pinos, a character “We have a lot to talk about” (positively, of course). This kind of “praise” – clearly maiceadas– It was popular in the early years of his government (for example, on the magazine cover time With EPN in the foreground and the legend “Saving Mexico”), which they later had to deposit in a landfill due to the catastrophic failure of the Mexican. In any case, they were not embarrassed, as they had already been charged.
The Economist uses terms well known to Mexicans, because more or less words (from “tropical Christ” to “false Christ”) are the same words Felipe Calderon and his gang (first and foremost organic businessmen and “intellectuals”) used in the Smelly campaign Presidential elections for 2006 and the frequent nausea in the subsequent electoral processes. Not even that publication is a narration, because it clarifies, in case of doubt, what his “sources” are. And now the same stinky personalities insist (including obscure propagandist Antonio Sola, today in the PRI service).
What President Lopez Obrador said yesterday is not free: what he has published The Economist It’s “very crude propaganda, irony, so that doesn’t help them. The media is already going through a severe credibility crisis. These famous magazines are in an awkward position, but if they don’t change their editorial policy and don’t act ethically, they won’t read it even in London.” It’s about a “stupid cover, very rude, of course a liar calling me“ False Christ, ”and they still lack morals and ask Mexicans not to vote for what we can represent. It’s like I’m going to the UK and asking the English to vote for my friend Corbyn, from the Labor Party Well, I can’t do that, because it’s up to the English language. So why don’t they even respect the forms? ”So,“ everyone who trespasses, for example, that magazine is fooling himself, and in journalism and politics everything can be done, but try not to deceive Himself”.
This, as far as The Economist, But there were also original “sources” for the “information” used by the magazine: “Those who supported and applauded the neoliberal model for a long time, which is nothing more than a policy of plunder, are very upset. They support privatization and always remain silent in the face of the corruption that has prevailed. “.
Then, according to what was announced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, what it published The EconomistBesides the “informal decision” made by Moody’s, they are a mixture of elite discontent; It’s time for the angry elites to understand that they don’t.”
