Anti-Chavez Media War Rages

Chavez is America's top regional target for regime change.

by Stephen Lendman

It shouldn't surprise. It raged throughout his tenure. It continues while he's ill. It vilifies progressive Bolivarianism. It wants neoliberal harshness replacing it.

It ignores responsible social reform. It's dismissive of Chavez's overwhelming popularity. He rescued Venezuela from its ugly past. Millions won't tolerate returning to what they deplore.

On January 7, the Cuban News Agency (ACN) headlined "Experts Denounce Media War against Venezuela and Hugo Chavez," saying:

On Venezuelan television, sociologist Mariclem Stelling said right-wing ideologues aren't able to discredit Bolivarianism. They surface prominently around election time.

They "break up into pseudo-organizations and fade away." Their views don't reflect popular sentiment. They're targeting Chavez's health. They hope "to get him out of the political scene."

They're up to no good. They use private media and social networks. They "fabricate messages in tune with their economic and political interests."

Spain's media is "treacherous," she added. They distort Venezuelan reality. ABC is especially malevolent. It headlined Chavez is in an "induced coma." 

He's on life support. He's dying. Cancer spread to his lower spine, bladder and other organs. With no corroborating evidence, it invented it. It maliciously turned truth on its head. 

It's not alone. At issue is ousting Chavez. Media scoundrels, opposition politicians, and other right-wing ideologues try any way they can. 

Washington supports them. With Chavez struggling to recover, they're taking full advantage.

On January 8, Granma International headlined "Intellectuals of the world in solidarity with Chavez," saying:

"THE Intellectuals and Artists in Defense of Humanity Network has joined peoples and individuals desiring the prompt and total recovery of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez."

Thousands from over 90 countries gave "a fraternal embrace to the revolutionary people of Venezuela and expresses their most heartfelt solidarity, in the profound confidence that President Chávez will overcome all his difficulties."
