Have some perspective, if fox news supported an illegal minority coup by say... I don't know... Vanuatu which ultimately failed, and Fox news was shut down... legally.
If the opposition performed protests which wrecked the economy for a decade
If the opposition is operating with cooperation of foreign powers to overthrow the government or assassinate the leader
What if liberals were being given money by socialist powers to sway American politics?
If previous governments failed to educate, provide utilities, housing, or economic means for millions of people
People march around in the streets with shirts beckoning Chavez's death, they speak openly about hoping the CIA assassinates him, I have spoken with many and have a few in the family, accept it or not he is democratically elected, in any country that makes you a 'threat to the state' but given American backing they gain the monicker of 'opposition'. If you talked about killing the president in protests, on the phone, in email, on the internet, someones going to get hammered no matter where you are. In the US we can afford the political luxury of clucking our tongues at the rest of the planet and saying they just need more freedom or a more free market, unfortunately most countries have more pressing 'dilemmas' and planet earth isn't that simple.
