December 2nd was the day of the vote for constitutional reform in Venezuela. The results have since shown: 49% for the constitutional amendments and 51% against. Here in the United States there has been a heavy propaganda campaign to demonize Chavez before and after the vote. What is behind the media’s hostility towards Venezuela?
