    I was referring to the web site, Venezuela Analysis, which according to their web site is a pro-Chavez organization.

    CEPR is a progressive organization, so they are hardly neutral either.

    I would just say they go way more in depth than the media here in America, and providing more news than news here in America as well... Showing the good not just the "bad" as they show here in America... Go more in depth..

    How are they progressive?

    He shuts down or takes over all media in the country that dares to state anything he does in wrong.
    Crime has sky rocketed under Chavez.
    So you turn on the TV one morning and Bill O'Reily is calling on the Army to overthrow the government, do you expect he will be on TV the next day? Incidently Fox News is broadcast in Venezuela every day. Also check out the political positions of the stations mentioned in this article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_in_Venezuela

    another internet conspiracy... we debunked this one somewhere on this site.

    Kindof like that time Israeli intelligence released that Ven was supplying Uranium to Iran then wikileaks showed a cable with US fellas knowing it was impossible.

    But then again there was a nuclear crisis with iran a few years ago... when theyre still years from even possibly having a bomb today.

    Going more "in depth" does not mean they are not far left wing....

    The causes they support reveal their leaning, and its so far left they could win a limbo contest.

    How are they progressive?
    According to Wiki they are. If I had the time and the inclination, I'm sure I could confirm that their members donate heavily to Democratic candidates.

    I wouldn't expect the US government to take him off the air.

    Would you???

    Well I expect the FCC would have a thing or two to say, not to mention whether Bill O'reily would be tried for sedition.

    Sorry to let you in on a little secret, but we have a thing here called free speech.

    In this country, unlike Venezuela, we can criticize our government all we want.

    there is also that pesky little fact that this country was formed by sedition...

    That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government
