As a Venezuelan reading articles in the U.S. about what's happening in my country; they don't ever get close to what is really going on there. It's important to remember that Venezuela doesn't have freedom of press; all channels and radio stations are controlled by Maduro, so through social media, the citizens have become the real reporters. Some international journalists have even been detained, including the American reporter, Jorge Ramos of Telemundo. This worries me, as both a Venezuelan and an American, because what's going on over there can immensely affect us here as well.
