What's this? A fair and balanced newspaper article about Hugo Chavez in the mainstream media?!?

From the Houston Chronicle, "Chavez as Castro? It's not that simple in Venezuela" by Bart Jones:

"The world should remain vigilant to ensure a free press, a free political system and a mixed economy where property rights are respected remain in place in Venezuela. If Chavez infringes on any of these rights, it should be vigorously protested and condemned. But so far it hasn't happened."

Mr. BART JONES,
My Father is 57 years old, my Mom is 52 (both were born here in Venezuela) and they pretty much have seen a lot of Presidents, a lot of situations, Democracy and Dictatorship, they have seen good and bad times, and they both agree that this President has been the Worst… He has built in some Venezuelan’s hearts “hate” and “envy”.
Mr. Jones, I am sure that you know that Chavez participated in a coup against Carlos Andres Perez (President of Venezuela back then)… In Venezuela we say do not do to other what you don’t want they do to you… If he says that those that try to revoke his Presidency on 2002 are Criminals, then CHAVEZ IS A CRIMINAL AS WELL!!!
Chavez Do not help the poor people, He wants the people to live, think and do what he wants, He is not really against the rich people, He is against the Knowledge, the freedom, and the Time… He wants to have a Presidency like his friends Fidel and Hussein; they lived like King while the people were dying.
- Ignorance is the best weapon for the socialism
- Fear is the word of trust for the socialism
- Silence is the best way to say what you want under the socialism
- Dependency to the Government is the plan of Chavez to stay in Power
Sir, you really need more that 8 years to understand our needs, our thoughts and believes… You need more that 8 years to tell my parents that Venezuela is having the best President ever… You need more than 8 years living in Venezuela to believe what you just said in your comment…
- My Country’s name is Venezuela an Not “Republica Bolivariana de Venezuela”
- My Flag has 7 stars an not 8 as he change it
- We have de right to watch, eat and dress what WE want
Please don’t tell me Chavez is the solution because he has been our DESTRUCTION!!!!
I HAVE THE RIGHT TO WATCH WHAT I WANT, I HAVE THE RIGHT TO TALK AGAINST THIS SOCIALISM GOVERNMENT AND I HAVE THE RIGHT TO DECIDE!!!
