The Chavez Fairness Doctrine
This is why Hugo is a hero to the fringe left like Danny Glover. He just forced a television station critical of his leftist government off the air, accusing it of "subversive" activities and of backing a 2002 coup against him. He also accused the station of violating broadcast laws and "poisoning" Venezuelans with programming that promoted capitalism. Chavez says he is democratizing the airwaves by turning the network's signal over to public use.
Yes, the left loves Hugo because he is a the kind of despot they can support.
