    Armed protestors stormed the Caracas headquarters of a television station critical of Hugo Chavez's government, one of the channel's managers said. Globovision's Maria Fernanda Flores said around 30 people arrived at the outlet's headquarters by car and aimed guns at security staff, forcing their way into the building -- where they activated two teargas canisters. One municipal policeman, charged with guarding the building, and some private guards were hurt during the attack, the station said. "We cannot tolerate that violence would be an instrument though which we resolve our differences," Flores said. Station manager Alberto Federico Ravell said he held...

    Grenades used in three recent attacks in Monterrey, Mexico, and Pharr, Texas, all originated from the same lot delivered from South Korea... That the grenade used in the third attack reportedly came from Mexico indicates that in addition to the well-known path of weapons flowing from the United States into Mexico, arms also are flowing from Mexico into the United States. The first of the three attacks targeted the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey, Mexico. In the second incident, again in Monterrey, gunmen attacked a local TV station on Jan. 12 in an attempt to intimidate the news agency into cutting...

    Washington -- A federal tax designed to subsidize local TV stations should replace the current system that allows TV stations to help their finances by demanding cash for carriage from cable operators, Insight Communications CEO Michael Willner (pictured) said Monday. Willner said his TV tax proposal would ensure a second revenue stream for broadcasters while relieving cable operators from having to pay for programming that is offered to the public free-of-charge.

    BAGHDAD (AP)--U.S. troops late Monday raided the offices of a television station affiliated with a major Shiite party represented in Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's government, the station's deputy editor said. Haidar Kadhim said the troops arrived at al-Furat television complex in central Baghdad's Karadah neighborhood at about 9:30 p.m. (1830 GMT) and were still there when he spoke to The Associated Press 90 minutes later. The troops disarmed the station's 40 guards, but allowed the management and editorial teams to continue to work undisturbed. They didn't search the offices. Al-Furat staff work out of five neighboring buildings and the U.S....

    The Ain al-Hilwe Palestinian refugee camp in the Lebanese port city of Sidon has been infiltrated by some 200 al-Qaida and Taliban terrorists who are using it as a base for planning and launching attacks, Lebanese intelligence officials told the London-based Sunday Telegraph. The officials blame the terror group, which calls itself Esbat al-Ansar (League of Warriors), for a rocket attack on the Future TV station in Beirut last Saturday night. The blast devastated the newsroom of the station, which is controlled by Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, but caused no injuries as no one was on duty at the...

    LOS ANGELES - Immigrant rights groups demanded Thursday that a local Spanish-language TV station cancel a "Fear Factor" type reality show that offers winners immigration counsel, alleging the show takes advantage of those desperate for a green card and a life in the United States. The show features immigrants who compete in contests that have included gulping down live tequila worms, fending off vicious attack dogs and jumping between two speeding 18-wheelers. The groups say Liberman Broadcasting's "Gana la Verde" or "Win the Green," shown on stations in Los Angeles, San Diego, Houston and Dallas, gives a false impression of...
