Chavez Gearing Up Anti-Opposition Media Rhetoric

And the censorship campaign in Venezuela begins. Back in May 2007 I pointed out that Chavez was busy silencing the opposition media in an indirect fashion. Now he's being more direct. I wonder if that Leftist investigative reporter for the BBC, Palast, who said of the Venezuela media: "And remember, the Venezuelan media hate Chavez. Unlike ours, their media actively debate politics, and they are against him. But he hasn't shut down the media" will be ready to recant. I'm guessing not.

The way Chavez was sounding two years ago is how the Democrats are sounding in this country now. Not a good sign.
