Venezuela's Embassy in Madrid lambasted on Thursday a presumed campaign launched by daily newspaper El País against Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, following the release of the photo of a man put on tubes, mistakenly identified as the Venezuelan leader.

The "Venezuelan embassy in Spain denounces the campaign by daily newspaper El País," the diplomatic mission stated in a communiqué. In addition, "rebuts the campaign undertaken by the daily newspaper against President Hugo Chávez and the Venezuelan people and democracy," AFP quoted.

The release "of the photo of a patient on tubes, pretending to show President Chávez and selling it as an ‘exclusive image' unveils the malice and lack of ethics in the coverage of El País concerning Venezuela," the note added.

El País had to apologize on Thursday for making a front page both in its printed and electronic versions of the photo presumably of President Chávez.

"A mere line of apology to its readers cannot remedy whatever reveals the way of publishing such material," the communiqué wrapped up.

Is protest over?

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.
