VENEZUELA: Globovision Anchor Quits On Air, Cites Censorship. “Chavez tells Fusion he believes most electronic media in Venezuela is experiencing this same censorship (or self-censorship). He says there is a bit more freedom in the print media but notes ‘newspapers [critical of the government] are constantly audited by officials, and if there are any problems with their finances, they are hit with hefty fines.’”

Huh. That sounds kinda familiar, somehow.

Plus:

On top of that you couldn’t say words like ‘food shortages’, barricades, repression, those type of terms were forbidden.

On CNN, the words are “Leland Yee.”
