This isn't newsworthy[edit]

Chavez says polarising things all the time. This isn't news, it's agenda-pushing cherry picking. Also, the final sentence/paragraph is unreadable. 17:24, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

It's typical of news sources to report on the comments of heads of state — we also do this reporting for other presidents. Though I agree, this type of article (not necessarily this one on Wikinews) could've been started to point out what a whackjob the West (what with their western point of view) would think of Chavez. —this is messedrocker (talk) 17:33, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

I take it, like a 'K' sound, "Ka-vez", to my ear. -Edbrown05 08:45, 12 August 2006 (UTC)
That's better than most people who Frenchify it. ;) A good example of why the US will be much better off when the Mexicans take over - Spanish is phonetic so things sound the way they look. 08:48, 12 August 2006 (UTC)
What a 5.8 earthquake in Mexico City will lead to a take-over? -Edbrown05 09:08, 12 August 2006 (UTC)
