Two Belgians arrive to Venezuela 6 months after the putsch and discover an extremely polarised mediatical landscape : commercials media calling for the destitution of the President, the official TV station, organ of the President, and local TVs encouraged by the Government.
In this conflictual situation, the authors of Media versus Drums ask themselves about the hidden motivations of the media, Venezuelans but also Europeans.
