30 Minutes Out, Cadena

With 30 minutes to go before the launch of the first presidential debate in Venezuela in 28 years, Venezuelans are being forced to watch president Chávez rant instead.

Is he really going to hog the airwaves all night?

Likely. Very likely.

For the diehards, you can watch the debate on streaming video here or on LL’s website, here.

Apparently, if you get CNN en Español on cable, you can see it there too.
