A Stupid Headline

February 27, 2003

The Boston Globe has this headline about yesterday’s refusal by the Government to attend the negotiation table:

Anti-Chavez protesters block diplomatic talks in Venezuela

This is incredible stupid from the Associated Press, the march did not “force” the cancellation, the Government used this as an excuse. The march did not even go near the Hotel where the talks are being held, as a matter of fact its path was quite far and giiven that it was a working day, the march was not the usual huge one. Moeover, it was over by nightfall, so they could have easily gone at that time if the had someting to fear or cared about the negotiations. The Government reagularly fails to attend the negotiations, sometimes not even calling to say they are not going. .
