2. Prensa Latina only mentions the threat
against Hugo with no mention of tear gas whatever. :shrug:

Reporter Rafael Poleo said on Alo Ciudadano, show of the private television channel, that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez might end like Italian Benito Mussolini, hanged by his feet.

"That is a statement supporting crime, they are attempting on the President's life", said Daza on Venezolana de Television.

Venezuelan Minister of Communication and Information Andres Izarra said that Globovision is openly calling to assassination once again.

"They are urging citizens to non-democratic solutions we cannot tolerate, so we have to appeal to the people's conscience", said Izarra who urged all freedom of speech organizations to intervene.

Private mass media has openly taken a stance supporting attempts of a coup d'tat and assassination that were exposed on September 2008 and resulted in the arrest of retired and active military plus some civilians.{20128C5C-33E6-...
