Legendary baseball announcer Vin Scully had some choice words for socialism during a Friday night broadcast of a Dodgers game, citing Venezuela’s total collapse to the joy of many and ire of some.

Socialism, failing to work as it always does. This time in Venezuela. You talk about giving everybody something free and all of a sudden, there’s no food to eat. And who do you think is the richest person in Venezuela? The daughter of Hugo Chavez. Hello! Anyway, oh and two.
Awesome. As Twitchy notes, there were cheers. But there were jeers too, notably from Deadspin and their comments section.
Of course Deadspin says this. https://t.co/mkx95OG0tu

As always, there are people who will say that his politics have no place in the broadcast, but this is a drop in the bucket against the cataracts of overwhelmingly liberal media. Every day on the networks and on basic cable there are a thousand shows, from talk shows to history shows to sitcoms and dramas, that espouse liberal points of view without any challenge or contrary assertion. I think you libs can forgive Vin Scully for making a 100% accurate observation, don’t you?
