With regime change in Caracas going poorly, the State Department is trying to create reality by browbeating reporters into following the official line. Veteran AP reporter Matt Lee was not amused, calling the effort "weaksauce." At the press briefing on Tuesday, spokesman Robert Palladino objected to news coverage describing Juan Guaido as opposition leader or self-proclaimed president, rather than "interim president" as Washington has declared him to be. "Millions of Americans and more than 50 countries recognize Juan Guaido as interim president of Venezuela," Palladino argued, so to refer to him otherwise "falls into the narrative of a dictator who has usurped the position of the presidency and led Venezuela into the humanitarian, political, and economic crisis that exists today."
