Hugo Chavez To Silence TV Station?

A very interesting news item from the BBC is that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has said he will not renew the licence for the country's second largest TV channel which he says expires in March 2007.

    "There will be no new operating licence for this coupist TV channel called RCTV. The operating licence is over... So go and turn off the equipment," Mr Chavez said.

    Mr Chavez said the channel was "at the service of coups against the people, against the nation, against national independence, against the dignity of the republic".

    The channel is among a number of private TV and radio networks that in recent years have strongly criticized Mr Chavez' government and favoured the opposition.

Has any Liberal Politician in the U.S. repeated the above words of the beloved and benevolent Venezuelan Dictator, but only applying it instead to FOX News and how they'd love to do the same to it?

You Liberals would love to see FOX News treated just like Chavez is treating RCTV, wouldn't you? You Liberals would like to see all channels and stations that are critical of Liberalism and Democrats yanked from the airwaves, wouldn't you?

Why are you so afraid of criticism? If your behavior and politics is so sincere and honest, why are you afraid to have it examined? Do you fear someone will find out just how transparent and phony you Libs are?

Yeah, you'd love to do a Chavez and pull a stunt like silencing your media critics. But that will never happen in the U.S. Sad, isn't it, that you'll have to live with the dissection of your actions and words instead of silencing your critics.
