    By Charles Hardy - : August 01, 2009
    TELESUR was an idea of Hugo Chávez. Early in his presidency, he began chastising his associates that they were not making use of the mass media. But gradually he became aware of the fact that even if they tried to use the commercial media, the media wasn’t open to giving them a fair hearing. The 2002 coup d’état against him made clear the need for alternative media sources—not just within the country but throughout Latin America.
