Dictators Unite!

Am I the only one that has noticed the level of hand wringing and condemnation over Pakistan’s repression of democracy activists this week is getting a lot more airtime than the identical events happening in Venezuela right now? Oh yeah, the same thing is going on in Georgia (country, not the state) as well.

Maybe Musharraf should start wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt, the media might back off the pressure. There’s a real inequity about the way some dictator’s are treated in MSM coverage these days.

The world page from the NYTimes today didn’t even mention the demonstrations going on in Venezuela and the story on Georgia almost made it sound like there was a bad flood or something.
