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.
Let us start by looking at what appears to be a discrepancy in figures. According to official statistics, the number of Venezuelans contracting HIV/AIDS every year amounts to 11,699; and as per Ministry of Health figures 43,805 people receive free antiretroviral medications. But Jhonatan Rodríguez, the president of ONG StopVIH, claims that these figures date back to March 2012, and that they are quoted as current figures.
