Chavistas mobilize in support of their president and his decision not to renew RCTV’s licence (I almost typed LIE-cence, which I guess it was!) They are sounding the alert: an alert against violence, hatred and lies from the blackshirts. As in April 2002, the “motorizados” (motorbikers) are out on the streets, shouting information and news from neighborhood to neighborhood to counter the lies that the mainstream media there and here are so eager to peddle.
While the oppos are boo-hooing about how their rights are being trampled (since when is the undeserved privilege of one media mogul a “right” to so many who get no real benefit from it whatsoever?), the Chavistas are celebrating one more true right of the people: the right to lie-free TV.
