The subject of venezuela seems to have lapsed with your view that Chavez
leaves much to be desired, or worse , is a demagogue. You might like to look
at  le Monde Diplomatique

for a nice view of the way the media in Venezuela  treats him, and why.  In
a constant state of warfare between classes the media is virtually the
message . The issue never ceases, thus  in a Press release 01/07/2004 the
Ministry of Finance innVenezuela felt compelled to  issue a statement 'A
recent press report has taken a comment of President Chavez out of
context'... on this occasion on control of foreign exchange reserves per se
and control of the Central Bank. The Economist more recently has  blurred
the facts about the same issue in a very  recent issue.
