TV battles in Venezuela, according to Weil

Weil, the Tal Cual cartoon editorialist, surprises us with two back to back cartoons that say it all about Venezuelan TV. First the quality of state TV. The anthropomorphic consequences of watching frequently VTV, ViVe, ANTV or TelSur: you turn into a gorilla, the appellation for the military thugs that used to rule over us and that we thought we had overcome 50 years ago.

The next cartoon is as precise. Only Globovision and RCTV stand to Chavez military regime. RCTV has the gun pointed to shoot on May 28. Venevision, Televen and other private or public networks have long caved in to the will of Chavez to support him non stop or at least to stay moot on governmental abuses and failures (when not in open collusion as Venevision chief, Bardasano, has been exposed though a delicious sound track that he tries to claim was a "montage", the same word and the same vehemence that chavistas use when caught red handed). Globovision is of course next.

-The end-

2) Your post will appear if you follow the basic rules. I will be ruthless in erasing, as well as those who replied to any off rule comment.

Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
