16. El Universal is virulently anti-Chavez every day. They were involved in the run-up
to the coup in 2002.

Here's what Monde Diplo says about them:
After Chvez came to power in 1998, the five main privately owned channels - Venevisin, Radio Caracas Televisin (RCTV), Globovisin and CMT - and nine of the 10 major national newspapers, including El Universal, El Nacional, Tal Cual, El Impulso, El Nuevo Pas, and El Mundo, have taken over the role of the traditional political parties, which were damaged by the presidents electoral victories. Their monopoly on information has put them in a strong position. They give the opposition support, only rarely reporting government statements and never mentioning its large majority, despite that majoritys confirmation at the ballot box. They have always described the working class districts as a red zone inhabited by dangerous classes of ignorant people and delinquents. No doubt considering them unphotogenic, they ignore working class leaders and organisations.
