Chavez silences opposition

Hugo Chavez of Venezuela descends further down the vortex of communist totalitarianism. Anyone paying attention to events in Venezuela realizes that seizing land for distribution to cronies, buddying up with the likes of Castro and Ahmedinejad, and buying arms all are leading indicators of a path leading to disaster for Venezuelans. The latest sign: shutting down a television station which has dared to oppose El Presidente.


But the American media are doing their best to downplay or minimize the trajectory. The Anchoress has constructed a post on the stunning media spin, showing how our media are portraying this totalitarian-style move.  Where is their concern for freedom of the press?

Oh, that's right. They want the "fairness doctrine" silencing conservatives in America.
