21. The thing is, that Chavez is attacked for doing what any reasonable
democraticly elected leader would do, and well within the law and it's spun as authoritarianism. Like when his government didn't renew RCTV's license when they enabled the US backed coup.

What we should do is look at the text of the proposed reform but what these threads usually do is start with the spin and spin out from there.
