Two Belgians arrive to Venezuela six months after the coup d'etat, and discover an extremely polarised mediatical landscape: commercial media calling for the destitution of the president, an official TV station which is the organ of Hugo Chavez, and several local TV stations encouraged by the government. In this conflictual situation, the authors ask themselves about the hidden motivations of the media, both Venezuelians and Europeans.
