Progressive interview with Chavez

Controversial Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has died at age 58 after a two-year battle with cancer. May he rest in peace (for a change).

In recent years, when I've thought about Chavez, I've usually immediately thought of his interview with investigative journalist Greg Palast, which appeared in the July 2006 edition of The Progressive, which happens to be my favorite magazine.

Palast's interview provided some needed insights to supplement and challenge the more hostile treatment of Chavez by the mainstream media.
