    The headline doesn't mention Venezuela, but the article does.

    Since you evidently know so much about it, why don't you tell us what this article says that's not true?

    Don't play smart..., laddie...

    I can see that you did react to the article depicting a sick child in a Venezuelan hospital's incubator getting medical care with the punchline...:
    ***“Leaving children to starve is NOT patriotic.”***

    Well... I don't know about patriotic but... that incubator..., serum and doctor'hand certainly looks to me as a damn innefective way of “leaving children to die”...

    Speaking about incubators...
    Herewith a classic “Fake News” about incubators...,and them gullible Anglos that buy it...

    Refusing international aid when there are massive shortages of food and medicine is a good way to let children die.

    I'll watch the video later, but I notice you didn't name anything untrue in the article.

    ” QUESTIONING THE HEADLINES...
    While hunger anywhere deserves high-level media coverage, it bears asking why Venezuela, a country which, by many indicators, has made important advances against hunger and poverty, is being targeted daily for dire coverage that does not reflect reality on the ground. Furthermore, why are the challenges being covered (albeit in a distorted manner), but not the many innovative and successful responses, from an explosion of urban agriculture, to an agroecological transition, to unprecedented levels of citizen organization around food production and provisioning? The answers to this are multifold, complex, and subject to different perspectives and interpretations, but *** WE HOPE THE READERS ARE ENCOUREGED TO SEEK OUT MORE INFORMATION BEFORE T A K I NG C U R R E N T N E W S R E P O R T S
    A T F A C E V A L U E...***”

    True two years ago..., true today..., laddie...

    Do please SEEK OUT MORE INFORMATION BEFORE T A K I NG C U R R E N T N E W S R E P O R T S A T F A C E V A L U E..., ok...?

    If not from the news, then where should I get information? Charities?

    https://www.caritas.org/2017/05/children-face-hunger-crisis-in-venezuela-as-malnutrition-soars/

    Non-western news sources?

    www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/09/venezuelan-families-scavenge-food-survive-hunger-170925165215474.html

    The news agency sponsored by Venezuela's government?

    www.telesurtv.net/english/news/Are-More-Babies-Dying-in-Venezuela-20160704-0022.html

    Even from them, the picture isn't pretty.

    It happens that I know a couple of people who used to work in Venezuela; one was married to a Venezuelan. Neither of them has anything good to say about Chavez.

    As for your 'explosion of urban agriculture', sounds like Dig for Victory. Only Venezuela is not at war and they should be able to feed their population.

    The one thing I will say is that the media is a lot less interested in poverty and malnutrition in countries that do tow the line and follow the US and IMF's preferred dogma.
