    Mr Zuloaga owns Globovision, the only television channel to remain openly critical of the government. He went into hiding in Venezuela last month after the authorities ordered his arrest for alleged profiteering. He has now appeared in Washington at the inter-American commission for human rights. "We have come to find the justice we cannot find in Venezuela,"

    Several dozen militant backers of Hugo Chavez on Monday stormed the headquarters of an opposition TV station that the Venezuelan president has threatened to shut down amid his crackdown on private media. Activists with the UPV, a radical left-wing party that backs Chavez, forced their way past security guards to enter Globovision headquarters in Caracas and fired tear gas inside the compound, images broadcast by the TV station showed. Globovision, a small but critical station, broadcasts news programing and has been highly critical of Chavez. Chavez's government condemned the attack, although Globovision's owners said they suspected the president was behind...

    Media: As Telesur, Hugo Chavez's new South American TV network, goes on the air, it's billed as a pan-American alternative to CNN. Knowing Chavez, sensible minds fear a propaganda machine. It's much worse. Ahead of its first broadcast Sunday, Telesur released a ghastly news trailer featuring one of the hemisphere's grimmest narco terrorists, Manuel "Sureshot" Marulanda. This professional killer leads the 13,000-strong FARC Marxist guerrillas who have terrorized Colombia for 40 years. As Sureshot preened before Telesur cameras, Telesur officials justified their free publicity for him as newsworthiness. "Do they think Sureshot doesn't exist?" said Director-General Aram Aharonian, a Uruguayan...

    CARACAS, Venezuela, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- When the Organization of American States asked its press freedom expert, Santiago Canton, to report on the state of the independent press in Venezuela, they must have known it was a sensitive mission. President Hugo Chavez's radical populist government does not take kindly to criticism nor does it appreciate outside scrutiny of its internal affairs. It's doubtful, though, that anyone at the OAS expected Canton to fall victim himself to the kind of tactics the Venezuelan press faces every day. Just moments after beginning the final press conference of his four-day visit to ...
