The revolution will be televised--at least as long as Hugo Chavez remains in office. Each week, the controversial Venezuelan president takes to the airwaves to address his constituency (and occasionally sing) in a one-of-a-kind TV program called ALO PRESIDENTE. This edition of Frontline investigates the president's unique media strategy and analyzes the overall impact of his rule on both his supporters and detractors.
Description by PBS Video:
FRONTLINE looks at Venezuela's controversial and outspoken president Hugo Chavez and the revolution he claims is turning his country into an anti-capitalist beacon for Latin America and the world. Through the lens of his unique weekly program "Aló Presidente" and the eyes of the Venezuelans who know him well, FRONTLINE digs beneath the surface of his presidency and his personality to try to understand the mercurial leader.
