I Want My MTV

I have resisted blogging about the protests in Venezuela over Chavez' refusal to grant a license renewal to one of Venezuela's most popular tv stations--it just happens to be one that, among other things, is often critical of the government. Large free speech protests have erupted, but since I don't know if they're politically motivated or motivated by missing out on their favorite soap opera, I've avoided mentioning them.

Until Hugo's boys start shooting students.

I haven't watched mainstream US national news broadcasts for the past several days. Is this being covered at all? It doesn't look like it's major news, judging from what's on their web sites.

I just blogged this on my local Fox affiliate website asking why this wasn't being covered. No response as of yet. I think I will try the other major networks tomorrow.
