UPDATED--CHAVEZ SHOOTING STUDENTS*** Chavez moves to close ANOTHER opposition TV station

UPDATE (BUMPED): That "man of the people"--Hugo Chavez--is now shooting students who disagree with him. If the world needed a clearer picture of what this cretin is made of, it has it now with the linked video.

*********** Original Post ************
A mere three days after it shut down the highly popular RCTV, the Hugo Chavez "Brownshirts" are now targeting another TV station for "ideological cleansing". Meanwhile Chavez is reportedly sending more police, troops, and Chavez Brigades to rough up those participating in large scale demonstrations.

Does this sound like a Democracy to you? (It did to Jimmy Carter.)

UPDATE: If you haven't noticed, the Associated Press is an intellectually and morally bankrupt institution. It is beyond belief how they are spinning this clear-cut power play by the Marxist thug Chavez. If you want to know why local newspapers--including the once-great Dallas Morning News--are failing miserably, it is because they are all clear-cutting their own bureaus (e.g. the Morning News no longer has a robust--and conservative-leaning Washington bureau; now it relies almost solely on AP Wire Stories, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. So folks who once could count on their hometown papers to show some semblence of Common Sense are now being subjected to non-stop leftist propaganda that does not agree with their sensibilities). This abomination by the AP is but another example of why newspapers will one day be an afterthought for a majority of Americans.
