Title A Greimasian Semiotic Analysis of Venezuela in April 2002. An Approach to the CNN Effect Summary The Venezuelan political conflict of 2002 has been quite difficult to understand from the international world because of the distortion of information both within Venezuela and beyond, as many interests of the media and some journalists, have blurred this fact, besides the obvious positions of the political world. Disinformation facing Venezuelans suffered heavy silences that gave supremacy, if you want information, loss of sovereignty, to the Venezuelan public, creating an information vacuum that was not suffered by the international community. The work is based on a semiotic analysis, since the isotopy of Greimas which shows the emergence of the so–called CNN Effect in Venezuelan society as a result of the silence of the Venezuelan media the day April 13 2002. Similarly, if collateral is observed, it might be an approach to creating a scenario for understanding the reality in Venezuela on 11th to 13th April 2002. Keywords CNN Effect, Venezuela, media, Greimas, isotopy, semiotic square.
