Hugo Chavez: Media Entrepreneur

While this shouldn’t be a surprise, it is nonetheless unsettling.

The new Venezuela-backed Latin American TV station Telesur is considering a possible alliance with Aljazeera.

Telesur president Andres Izarra announced the possibility on Wednesday as he confirmed he would step down as Venezuela’s information minister to head the recently created Latin channel, which President Hugo Chavez has promoted as an alternative to US media outlets like CNN.

“There is a possibility of reaching an agreement with Aljazeera, but our interest, more than anything, is in looking for greater diversity and deeper views on subjects,” Izarra said at a news conference.
