CHÁVEZ'S HEALTH | Sanctions may be ahead

Legal actions against El País seek intimidation among Venezuelan media

Media expert Oscar Lucien warned that legal actions against Spanish newspaper El País perhaps aim at generating self-censorship in the Venezuelan press. Three aspects emerge from the publication of the false image of the Venezuelan president

Referring to the actions to be taken by the Venezuelan Government in response to the alleged image of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez portrayed by Spanish newspaper El País, well-known media expert Oscar Lucien said the Government seeks to intimidate Venezuelan private-owned mass media. The most significant sanction that may be imposed on El País, he reckoned, would be mainstreamed by its own readers, considering that the release of the fake image undermined the journal's credibility for not confirming the truth of its content.

In an interview with daily newspaper El Universal, Lucien underscored the following aspects resulting from the publication of the image:

1.- The sanction is imposed by the journal's readership. The newspaper made a mistake for failure to check the source of the image.

2.- Secrets in connection with Chávez's health spark uncertainty in mass media, which aim at bringing information to their audience. 

3.- It is also important to highlight the relevance of social networks, which in no time said the information was untrue.

This is all there is

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
