Argentinean President: Photo of Chávez is a dirty trick
"On the front page of El País I saw a photo. Let me correct, that is not a photo, but a dirty trick"
"On the front page of El País I saw a photo. Let me correct, that is not a photo, but a dirty trick," twitted on Thursday the Argentinean president on her account @CFKArgentina.
El País took out on Thursday of its website a photo that made its front page, presumably the exclusive image of President Chávez, featuring also in the first printed edition, a copy of which was received by Kirchner, AFP cited.
"Nasty press. I cannot think of any other term. It is the same everywhere," Kirchner lamented in another twit as part of a number of criticisms on Thursday against the media, including British The Sun and Argentinean El Clarín, in support of Chávez's government.
They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
