Senior official: Chávez will undergo a new treatment upon lab results
In an interview held on TV, Venezuela's Communication and Information Minister Ernesto Villegas said that the Spanish newspaper El País has been for long conducting a systematic campaign against President Hugo Chávez. "El País' style manual has been thrown to the trash can," the minister admonished
The minister stated that the head of state's health condition is "favorable," yet "we do not want to jump into false speculations concerning the president's return."
Referring to the recent scandal arising from a fake image of President Hugo Chávez released by Spanish newspaper El País, Villegas underscored that the Spanish journal has been engaged for long in a systematic campaign against the Venezuelan president, and added that El País' "style manual has been thrown to the trash can."

But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
