He's a former labor leader, legislator, National Assembly Speaker and Foreign Minister. He'll rise to the occasion if called on.

On January 7, Investor's Business Daily (IBD) headlined "Hugo Chavez Hit By Cuba's Surgical Strike."

Late reports call his condition stable. IBD claims he's "dying of cancer in Havana." He sought "Cuba's vaunted socialized medical care".to make a political statement."

"Cuban officials bark orders to (Caracas), and red-shirted Chavistas hold vigils."

Signs point "to an imminent exit for the Venezuelan leader who controls a huge part of the world's oil."

Venezuela indeed is oil rich. The rest of IBD's diatribe was pure propaganda.

On January 9, Bloomberg headlined "Commandante Chavez Won't Give Up Power Before Ghost," saying:

Venezuela's Supreme Court reinterpreted constitutional law. It did so to justify postponing Chavez's inauguration. It'll have a harder time doing it if he dies.

"That doesn't preclude the possibility for constitutional hanky-panky, of course. The best insurance against that possibility is for Venezuela's neighbors".to insist the country abide by its constitution. Time is running out, Commandante!"

The Financial Times weighed in. On January 9, it headlined "Court clears Chavez ceremony delay," saying:

It ruled unanimously for postponement. Doing so "prompted angry (opposition claims) that the judiciary is controlled by politicians."

Opposition lawmaker Julio Borges said the decision isn't "of a strong government, but of a very weak (one) suffering an internal crisis."

Western media piling on won't end. Vilification, slander, and managed news misinformation are prioritized. 

Doing it substitutes for responsible journalism. Scoundrels are paid to lie. They abhor what reliable journalists do - their job.
