Fact check

Delaying Chavez's inauguration complied fully with Venezuelan law. Post editors lied claiming otherwise.

Zuloaga's been living abroad since 2010. He left after Venezuelan courts ordered his arrest. His son, Guillermo Zuloaga Siso, was charged. 

It pertains to conspiracy and generic usury. It relates to irregularities connected to their car dealership. 

Conspiracy involves two or more people plotting criminal acts. Guilty parties face two to five years in prison. Generic usury refers to concealing facts for disproportionate advantage. It carries a one to three year sentence.

In 2009, both men got restraining orders. Zuloaga was prohibited from leaving the country. He refused to turn himself in. He secreted himself. 

He broke the law. He said Chavez victimized him. He claimed it involved silencing free expression. Not so. It was unrelated to Globovision content. 

He fled overseas. He did so to avoid prosecution. He remains there unprosecuted. He's a fugitive. He admits he's an "enemy of the government.

Globovision's his propaganda vehicle. It turns truth on its head. In late 2011, it was fined $1.5 million. It paid eight months late. It did so after Venezuela's Supreme Court forced compliance.

It violated Articles 27 and 29 of Venezuela's Law of Social Responsibility in Radio and Television. Globovision's a serial offender. So are other major television broadcasters.

In 2007, RCTV's (Radio Caracas Television) operating license was suspended. It's Venezuela's oldest private broadcaster. A public TV station (TVES) replaced it.

It "promotes the participation and involvement of all Venezuelans in the task of communication (as an alternative to) the media concentration of the radio-electric spectrum that remains in the hands of a (dominant corporate) minority sector."

RCTV's cable and satellite operations were unaffected. Suspending one license was far less than deserved.

Along with other dominant corporate broadcasters, it committed sedition. It aided and abetted the April 2002 coup.

No one went to prison. Broadcasters still operate. RCTV got off easy. One operating license wasn't renewed. It took effect on expiration. Harsher punishment was warranted.

Venezuelan media scoundrels exceed America's worst. Globovision's a loose cannon. It spurns public interest. It wages war on truth.
