South American Countries Form Channel – US Promises to Counter-cast

The Venezuelan government officially launched Telesur – a new Latin American satellite TV station. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has said the station will give South America a voice independent of traditional media conglomerates like CNN… The station is being launched with help from other Latin American governments including Argentina, Cuba and Uruguay. Last week the U.S. House passed an amendment calling for the U.S. to begin broadcasting its own channel into the region to counter Telesur.
