Telesur -- All Chavez all the time

Interesting perspective. I don't agree that Rep. Connie Mack's (R-Fla.) proposed an amendment to the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 2005 is childish. This is a war for the minds of millions of Latinos in South America. They also deserve a chance to know what freedom is all about, to understand that corruption and power-hungry men are at fault and the reason their countries do not prosper and to hope for a true better future. This is a lot more than what Telesur can offer.
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT Telesur, the new satellite TV network funded by the Venezuelan government, will be a runaway success. It is also possible that C-SPAN's gavel-to-gavel coverage of hearings of the House Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform will someday outdraw reruns of "The Simpsons."

Possible, but not very likely.
