Venezuelan President's Talkathon Cut Short
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Dan Rather once wrote that the camera never blinks, but it seems to have fallen asleep in Venezuela. President Hugo Chavez has a weekly television show. As we heard on this program last week, he promised a four-day marathon edition. But in the midst of that marathon the show disappeared. The government says technical problems interfered with the program called "Alo, Presidente." It is not clear if Chavez will start all over from the beginning.
It's MORNING EDITION.
