Mark Weisbrot has a good story on how the US media treats Chavez
Why the US demonises Venezuala's democracy http://gu.com/p/3apkh/tw
He mentions how Dan Rather misrepresented the illness of Chavez. US media is watched all over the world. I once sat to watch 60 Minutes which I used to admire. It was about organic farming - a subject I knew alot about. The show was so obviously biased that I never watched it again. I thought if I know this subject and I know that they are talking rubbish how can I trust them to give me the facts on subjects that I don't know about?
