Chavez to Shut Down Opposition's Television Station

Digging into his Marxist knapsack, Hugo announces he will silence the opposition.
The BBC reports:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has said he will not renew the licence for the country’s second largest TV channel when it expires in March 2007.
In an address to troops, Mr Chavez said he would not tolerate media outlets working toward a coup against him.

Radio Caracas Television, which is aligned with the opposition, supported a strike against Mr Chavez in 2003.

Correspondents say this is Mr Chavez’ first significant political move since his re-election earlier this month.

This sometimes happens when you vote in a Marxist.
