How the Real Latin America Feels about America

The New York Times may not agree, but Free Belarus takes a look outside of the communist rallies in Mar da Plata to show you how the rest of Latin America feels about America.

The whole post is good but here is part of the reality:

George Bush is liked far more than Fidel Castro, and only slightly less liked than Hugo Chavez. That doesn’t seem like much, but you’d never even know that much by reading the newspapers. As The Economist writer says, “the appeal of Chavismo in the region may be more limited than is often claimed.” What’s more, in Venezuela’s two neighboring countries, Ecuador and Bolivia, only 9% and 5% respectively have a favorable opinion of Mr. Chavez.

You won’t get that on CNN!
