How The USA Media Distorts the News!

Chavez is a super liberal. Maybe Chavez, the president of Venezuela, is even a Socialist. But he has apparently maintained a democratic government in Venezuela where his approval rating is very high. Venezuela has more freedom of speech and of the press than does the United States at this point in time. So why all these warped stories about the loss of civil rights in that country? Who is contolling the US media? Latin America a not concerned about Chavez' government, so why is the United States getting so bellicose about it? Who's in charge?

Arafat's doctor: His blood had HIV, but poison killed him
Late Palestinian Authority chairman Yasser Arafat's blood contained the deadly HIV virus, Arafat's personal physician told Jordanian media over the weekend. Dr. Ashraf al-Kurdi stressed, however, that Arafat did not die of AIDS
Jordanian news site Amman quoted al-Kurdi - a former Jordanian health ministry official - as saying that the virus had been injected into Arafat's bloodstream close to his death, and that the real cause of the chairman's death was poison.
Arab journalists and opinion-shapers have repeatedly accused Israel under former prime minister Ariel Sharon of poisoning Arafat.
