Note the care and emphasis given by the Huffington Post to Chávez’s admiration for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and his hatred of George W. Bush–enough to qualify for sainthood in the American liberal Pantheon. (Accordingly, HuffPo’s top headlines since Chávez’s death have been: “He’s Dead” and “Life After Hugo.”)

Also note the total absence of any information about Chávez’s coup attempt, assaults on democracy, attacks on press freedom, suppression of human rights, alliances with America’s enemies, and failed economic policy.
