brief coup in venuzuela

a story about how chavez was briefly outed from the presidency, along with his entire administration. an example in corrupted use of the media for political ends. something about the context makes it a very raw example, and very clear in terms of misuse of footage, selective use of camera angles, the manipulation of crowds and of supporters. some interesting things about the international reactions. much of it is like a long, and real, version of a tintin comic. a very latin-american revolution. the chavez regime comes across very well in this particular film, and extremely widespread popular support is implied throughout.
