Hugo Chvez. Obligado a distraer a su pblico con las ms disparatadas ocurrencias y las teoras ms descabelladas, el caudillo venezolano no deja de superarse a s mismo. A travs de una nota emitida por su Gobierno, Chvez acusa a la Marina de Estados Unidos de provocar el devastador terremoto que la pasada semana asol Puerto Prncipe. Entre la comedia y la paranoia conspirativa, el lder bolivariano parece haber perdido la capacidad de distinguir entre sus chuscos monlogos televisados y la seriedad que exige una tragedia como la que vive Hait.

So we have a peculiar process in which a TV-station press release has morphed into an utterance from Chavez. I don't regard FOX as an impartial news source, but in this case FOX's slanted propaganda seems far closer to the news than what we just got here from DigitalJournal quoting RussiaToday quoting
