Now you are being blind. Didn't Chavez take all the TV time he wanted? Hasn't he mostly silenced the opposition press? There are numerous incidents of journalists being arrested for criticising the government. And most privately owned media outlets self-censor themselves because of the various decrees that prohibit saying things that Chavez may not like. But you probably consider this to be good government.
