Ampli: new media mixes investigative journalism with satire

Posted on Posted in plop

Plop Media Content, the crew behind Venezuela’s famous satirical news website El Chigüire Bipolar, has started a new project named Ampli, in which they stop being funny by reporting made-up news, and start being funny by reporting real news focused in Latin American issues. In its first three-part story, Ampli covers the Lava Jato scandal, where a Brazilian car wash company was used to launder ill-gotten money linked to construction conglomerate Odebrecht, revealing a web of corruption spanning the entire continent.
