Ombudsman Office objection...

Get your defence in early: Venezuelan ombudswoman Gabriela Ramírez has asked for moderation from international election watchers saying that "Venezuela has an electoral system we are proud of" (she didn't say why)...but at least one Spanish News channel has already been denied access, branded as "lacking in objectivity, and participating in a coordinated campaign of manipulation and misinformation from the U.S. and Spain against Venezuela." [Ows-translated from El Periodico]...and nothing whatsoever to do with the channel, in the same month as they applied for visas, broadcasting Venezuelan comedian Luis Chataing saying that Hugo wanted to be king of Venezuela whilst agreeing that a president should be able to understand that you can laugh or criticise a president and still respect them!! This weekend should be interesting.
