When Barbara Walters fawns all over him.

And yes, this will be an interview I'll skip.

Are you suprised?

He hits the trifecta:

1) He comes from an "authentic" culture

2) He’s a socialist

3) He hates America passionately (double bonus for hating Bush)

But honestly, after allowing herself to be bound with Star Jones, Rosie and the rest of the lightweights (mentally speaking) who even considers her a newswoman anymore?

Why is anyone surprised? This is just another of a long line of media love affairs with tyrants. During the twentieth century, it was Lenin, and Stalin for the Left, Hitler and Mussolini, for the Right. After World War Two, add Castro, Guevara and now Chavez.

Why tyrants fascinate those who they would butcher is beyond me. There seem more to the media fascination than Joe Friday’s “Just the fact’s ma’am.” It looks like a love affair with anyone who opposes this country, it’s values and it’s leadership.

I’m with Mr. Fish. I simply cannot comprehend how anyone can be so over-awed by these despots like Chavez. Is it just that they are tyrants in their own hearts and admire someone who has to guts to carry his secret tyrannical wishes into action?

Note that Diane Sawyer fawned all over Ahmedinejad from Iran when she interviewed him.

What is about the Left in this country that hates America and George W. Bush, but has a love affair with psychotic dictators around the world?
