Chavismo’s Idea of Press Freedom

Quico says: This is what you get for passing out flyers supporting press freedom in Venezuela today. And I don’t mean “today” metaphorically: this photo was literally taken today.

Amid shouts of “these streets belong to the people”, a group of chavista thugs rounded on a group of Cadena Capriles journos on Avenida Urdaneta, in downtown Caracas. A dozen of them were injured.

And just think: most of the journos passing out those flyers work for the Ch├ívez-friendly Ultimas Noticias. Think what an El Nacional journo would get for a similar “offense”.
