The Unidad candidates are holding their second debate tonight. And of all places at Venevision who is either sensing the wind shifting or is goign to sabotage the event for Chavez. After all, let's face it, Venevision has been working for chavismo more or less directly since 2007. But let's give them the benefit of the doubt tonight, hoping that they finally found their way to Damascus. And thank them for taking the risk, becasue in Venezuela ti is a risk, to show nation wide 2 hours of opposition talk to a country where at lest 40% of the people have not heard anything straight and live from an anti Chaevz point of view. Enjoy it becasue it may well be your only chance if the debates head back to the Globovision cableTV ghetto.
There will be two novelties compared to last time. It will be more professional from a major network and it will be coming from journalists that will this time around ask the questions instead of the students. Somehow I am doubtful that the chosen journalists will do a better job. But gain, let's give them the benefit of the doubt.
And there will be one major change as this time around we will have 6 guys since Pablo Medina will be allowed to join the other five, Arria, Perez, Lopez, Radonski and Machado.
I do not know how good I can be at that but I will try to do a live twitter following so if you have no access to Venevision you may always try me at @danielduquenal . I promise not to tweet more than every ten minutes average, when and if something significant happens. Starts at 9 PM Venezuela time.
