Media Spin on the Venezuela Uprising

Wuzza Dem has an interesting take on the mainstream media coverage of the intense civil uprising in Venezuela against Hugo Chavez's hard-line socialist government

He mentions that some of the article titles he has read were completely ambiguous and do not really capture the real story at all.

For instance, two headlines he mentions are "Venezuelan TV Station Shutdown Sparks Criticism" and "Venezuela TV Station Shuts Down". Yes, those headlines capture the scene of thousands of protesters filling the streets of Caracas each and every day for several days now.

Check out the video at the Wuzza Dem link above, and tell me it doesn't remind you of Tienanmen Square, circa 1989.
