Of Course, They Like Him
Just on a hunch, I did a Yahoo search for "hugo chavez misdeeds." The very first result is an open letter from Indymedia, declaring their support for Hugo.
This would be laughable, if it weren’t for the brutality of the regimes named in the letter. Then again, why should I expect any less from Indymedia? The more crooked the politician, the more they like him.
Here’s a dose of reality: Venezuela ranked 90th out of 167 in the Press Freedom Index published by Reporters Without Borders. That’s on par with Cambodia, just a little better than Turkey, but worse than Guatemala.
