To all readers, do the right thing, the honest thing: support independent investigative journalism, help us expose rampant corruption. Note added 28/06/2021: impostors are using this site's former editor's full name, and a fake email address ( to send copyright infringement claims / take down requests to web hosting companies (exhibit Hostgator). The attempt is yet another effort paid by corrupt thugs to erase information about their criminal activities. has no issues with other websites / journalists using / posting information published here, so long as the source is properly cited.

Chavismo tras compra de El Universal

Llevo varios días investigando sobre la venta de El Universal a un supuesto grupo español (Epalisticia). Creo poder afirmar, con certeza, que el trío de doctores chimbines relacionados con Epalisticia (Eduardo Lopez de la Osa, Jose Antonio de la Torre, y Jose Luis Basanta Otero) no tienen ni las credenciales, ni los fondos para haber pagado 90 millones de Euros por El Universal.
