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.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
