To most persons it’s not a surprise to hear The Economist has a right-wing bias, all one needs to do is look at those being targeted. Most of the Governments that fall out of favor from the western newspaper are countries that don’t follow America’s request to be a vassal state and toe the U.S foreign policy line.
So it’s not surprising The Economist Newspaper would target Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Currently, the Western newspaper “The Economist” is trying to persuade Mexico against the referendum that would hold past corrupt positions accountable and make those processes public.
A referendum to determine if former presidents can be prosecuted for corruption will be held in Mexico on 1 August 2021. The referendum was proposed by incumbent President Andrés Manuel López Obrador in 2020. The referendum will cost Mex$528 million.
In the Past, Most Mexican presidents would rubber-stamp almost everything the U.S suggested Mexico do, in terms of economic policy and in fighting crime. And almost all those suggestions created the problems Mexico is currently facing today. One could argue The Economist Newspaper is trying to protect those past corrupt Presidents.
It should be noted that this is not the first time The Economist targeted the Mexican president, during the June 6 elections, the weekly dedicated the cover to him with the title “The false Messiah . ” And in which he asked Mexicans to ‘think’ or ‘analyze’ whether the vote should be given to the Morena party, founded by the current president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
Sí seguro, con el copetes estaban felices y cómo no, si les ponía en bandeja nuestro país. Inglaterra, la que devastó África y la India. La que le tiene el pie en cuello a Irlanda.
