    Yes those privately owned media companies are flourishing under Chavez aren't they?
    Aside from the refusal to grant RCTV a networking broadcast license, they're doing fine. RCTV, by the way, still exists, and is still one of the largest media companies in Venezuela; they just broadcast on cable now.

    If you have some link showing they aren't then you might have a point.

    I may have misstated when I suggested that you practice "willful" ignorance.
    If that's true then why are the majority of intellectuals, academics and people of high education, liberal?
    Then why do we have such fiscal problems every time a republican is in office?

    I don't know why anyone would bother because you have shown an extreme propensity for avoiding the facts and reality; but here you go, just a few issues:

    Does intellectualism translate to economic common sense?

    Academics can be stunningly ignorant about market forces, how to manage a business and economics.

    This argument is false.

    I don't see how laws of other countries, such as the US, for example, are any less arbitrary in their writing and implementation.

    Perhaps you could inform us of some instances where this law was actually used in the way that your article claims it could be.

    The same, of course, goes for your second article.

    As for your third article, what's the point?

    And your fourth article regarding RCTV was already addressed.

    Do you really think that Chavez is not threatening? Go to FRONTLINE @ PBS's website and watch the Hugo Chavez show. He is illucid at best.

    So your argument is what? That Chavez is not attempting to become the dictator of Venezuela for life and control the media in his country?
