CHAVEZ: DEBATING THE DEMONISATION

-

In this half hour programme in its Inside Story Americas Series, Al Jazeera’s Shihab Rattansi looks at why many Western media outlets continue to demonise the Venezuelan president after his death. What lies beneath the media coverage? With guests: Charles Hardy, he’s lived in Caracas for 28 years working with the country’s poorest residents as a Catholic priest; Rory Carroll, the author of Comandante – A Portrait of Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela, and a correspondent with the Guardian newspaper; Steve Rendall, a senior analyst with Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting; and Alex Main, a senior associate at the Centre for Economic and Policy Research, and a former consultant to the Venezuelan government.
