Fairness Doctrine Sweeps Venezuela as Opposition Media Head Indicted

By on 6.6.09 | 5:24AM

Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez is imposing his own version of the Fairness Doctrine.

Authorities in the workers' paradise indicted Guillermo Zuloaga, president of the opposition media outfit Globovision.

Zuloaga is accused of "usury." Yes, usury. Really. It's a crime down there.

There is no reaction yet from Chavez's American friends, Sean Penn, Danny Glover, and Kevin Spacey, about the indictment. They also haven't commented on the fact that Chavez allows Islamic terrorist groups to use his country as a base.
