  • the question is: it’s VERY believable that CIA would pay (and fund) journalists and other media professionals in Venezuela to try to destabilize Chávez government. But, is it a fact? Are those journalists really part of a plot, or are they victims just of a reasonable paranoia?

    It’s a very complex situation.
