Hugo Chavez Shows American Conservatives How REALLY Oppressive Governments Deal With The Media

It won't stop them from bellyaching about President Obama, but anyway.

The head of the only nationwide private TV station critical of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has been charged with usury. Also Thursday, one of his homes was raided for the second time in two weeks.

Officials say Globovision President Guillermo Zuloaga, who also owns two Toyota dealerships, was accused of hoarding 24 cars at one of his properties, the official Venezuelan News Agency reported. In addition, Venezuelan authorities searched one of his homes to see if Zuloaga, an avid hunter, had killed any protected prey, Globovision reported.

Zuloaga denies the accusations, saying they are politically motivated.
