Serious Softball Interveiw



(Translation: We invite all Venezuelans to watch the interview of the year.
The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, "comandante" Hugo Chavez Frias, leader of the XXI century socialism, in an exclusive interview with the journalist Barbara Walters, star anchorwoman of the main US network ABC news)

This announcement appeared in every major newspaper in Venezuela. It was also advertised on the radio and TV. The rumors down here are that she was paid over 100,000US$ for her interview! I am done with MSM, thats for sure! I guess she doesn't realize that journalist down here don't have the same freedom she has! Her incredibly shallow interview was aired on what we call CADENA. This is where the government takes over all airways, radio and TV and we all get blessed to watch what he deems appropriate. Cadena means CHAINS in Spanish. And that is how we feel! Imprisoned by his words and unable to see the light of day. Sunday he spoke for 5 and a half hours.
That is life in Venezuela! To see further information about security in Venezuela at

and see if Barbara was in the same Venezuela as the rest of us.... or in Chavezuela or Hugoslavia?

It all just sickens me! I no longer watch much of anything on the main stream media, much less get my news from them. I find it interesting that the article calls ABC the number one main network in USA, is it? I live here and didn't even know that!
I very rarely watch anything on ABC, CBS, NBC, or CNN (Communist News Network)much less news. Fox is my choice news outlet or the internet.
It breaks my heart to see the direction our country is headed. It seems the more immoral one can be, the more popular they get!

Cadena? That way too appropriate, someone who speaks double speak needs to take care of that. I guess we should be grateful she didn’t shout out his praises, MSM is abysmal. It shows however in their dwindling ratings and ad revenue. What gets me is there is no effort to improve despite the shrinking audience.

Hmm...funny...it means CHAINS. I'm sure that's no sign of his mind set. Or maybe I'm wrong? Just a thought...
