Flashpoints – August 16, 2004

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez seems poised to win in a landslide victory against the recall effort by the right-wing opposition, we’ll talk to the Venezuelan Ambassador about what this means for the Chavez government and the people of Venezuela; plus, over 7,000 Palestinian prisoners begin a hunger strike from behind bars as Israeli occupying forces kill more in Gaza and the West Bank; also, we’ll play excerpts from the hard-hitting documentary Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s
War on Journalism; and the Knight Report.
