State media in Venezuela: a very bad joke (updated)

The screenshow you can see here is not a parody. This is not US The Onion or German Heute Show. This is Venezuela's main state TV channel, Venezolana de Televisión. Here you can read: "Chávez's son won: Nicolás Maduro is the Elected President of Venezuela".

Now look at the percentages and the proportions in the chart. Bear in mind that Venezuelans' maths skills are among the lowest in South America. Not for nothing the only region of Venezuela taking part in the PISA study is Miranda, the region where Capriles is governor.

I am sending this post to the foreign media.

Updated: Now they changed it. Someone realised this can't go on forever:
