25. They're just taking cues from the corrupt figures they so avidly worship

Distract your listeners/readers from the topic at hand, be it by shifting it completely or adding personal attacks, and hope that they forget about it. It's a classic move used by anyone who can't defend something indefensible. What's funny is that they claim that the opposition are the ones who control the media, when it just so happens that Globovisión, which was the only public channel left that openly criticized the government, was bought off by a middle-man of the government to ensure that they would never do that again. Just yesterday Leopoldo Castillo, one of the most outspoken critics of the government in the channel, stepped down from his daily talk show yesterday because the new Globovisión directory has put up new policies restricting the content that could be talked about in the channel. Now pretty much all journalists of the channel have quit in protest this past week, and to conserve their dignity. A person's conscience can be bought only to a certain extent, and the old Globovisión crew wouldn't have it. And yet the Chavistas in this website have the gall to still claim that the government isn't the one that controls most of the media in the country.
