I just had to say how disgusted I am with the coverage on this evenings NPR regarding the coup in Venezuala. The pundits were definitely praising yet another loss of a democracy (isnt this what we as a country are supposed to be fighting for?). With caustic terms commentators described the former former president as worthless and, while he was a popular leader, he talked constantly to the poorer classes of latin america, railing against the "cultural and economic elites" who had robbed the country blind. Of course no other viewpoint was offered.
The terrible last bit had to do with how there was a large party within the grounds of a major oil company, celebrating the fall of this president.
They described the newly installed "president" (former head of oil company) as a "moderate", giving him much praise.
