Apparently Venezuelan dictator, Hugo Chavez, has some good media and image consultants. He’s come so far that he is finally back in the good graces of the New York Times. That’s sweet.
There is good news inside Venezuela too. On the same weekend that Mr. Chávez turned on the FARC, he suspended a chilling new law he had enacted by decree that would have forced Venezuelans to cooperate with the intelligence services or go to jail. He has also withdrawn a school curriculum that blasted capitalism as a force to subjugate the people.
That must be a relief for the NYT editorial board. After all, Chavez toes their ideological line. He’s just making it easier now for the liberal press (what an oxymoron) to justify another despot. Maybe Reid and Pelosi should call up Hugo and get the number of his consultant.
