  1. DirecTV must love Chavez. He destroyed RCTV, he regularly interrupts prime time TV with boring monologues leaving people with DirecTV or no reliable source of sit down entertainment. He is the biggest friend of DirecTV and therefore the expansion of subversive Gringo culture in Venezuela’s history.
