Chavez Shuts Down Opposition TV Station

Venezulean strongman Hugo Chavez has ordered Radio Caracas Television off the air.

It's transgression?

Not broadcasting Chavez's speeches.

This isn't the first time RCTV has run afoul of Chavez. He refused to renew its license in May 2007 accusing the network of supporting the failed coup against him in 2002. RCTV was able to broadcast on international cable and satellite systems by that summer.

Should President Obama be calling this man his "amigo"?
