military coup in
Bolivia backed by violent
right-wing rioters and the
US government, but you’d hardly know this from

“Bolivia’s Morales resigns amid scathing election
report, rising protests” reports The
“Bolivian Leader Evo Morales Steps Down” says The
New York Times.
“Bolivian President Evo Morales resigns amid fraud
poll protests” declares the

election rigging” we

“Bolivia’s President Morales resigns after backlash
to disputed election” says the

are now currently
searching for him to arrest him, leading to
ousted government officials being
rounded up and held captive by soldiers wearing
All perfectly normal and not suspicious at all.
usual, mass media’s reporting on this story is
in full alignment with the US State Department, with
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also advancing the
“disputed election” line in a
before the forced resignation of Morales.
