Venezuela says it will file charges against US cable network CNN for linking President Hugo Chavez to Al Qaeda.
Information Minister William Lara has presented what he says is CNN footage displaying pictures of Mr Chavez juxtaposed with those of an Al Qaeda leader.
Mr Lara says CNN also aired a story about the Venezuelan protests but used images taken in Mexico of an unrelated story.
“CNN broadcast a lie which linked President Chavez to violence and murder,” he said.
CNN has issued a statement strongly denying being “engaged in a campaign to discredit or attack Venezuela”.
The news network has acknowledged a video mix-up and “aired a detailed correction and expressed regret for the involuntary error”.
Isn’t it the left whom won’t believe or forgive Fox News when this happens? Honest mistakes can only apply to the left? Is that how it really works?
Regarding the Al Qaeda leader, the network says “unrelated news stories can be juxtaposed in a given program segment just as a newspaper page or a news website may have unconnected stories adjacent to each other”.
Well, I’ve seen the left ‘connect the dots’ and strongly state that it must be done on purpose when someone like Malkin does this. Ulterior motives can only happen on the right?
