Gregory Wilpert is editor of Venezuela Analaysis, a sociologist who originally
came to Venezuela to teach and was forever changed by the events he witnessed
during the failed 2002 coup attempt against Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
He spoke about how the private Venezuelan corporate media was complicit
in the planning of the coup, with its false reporting that the action was a "legal transfer
of power," when instead, Chavez was placed under arrest.
