Anti-Chavez media vows to stay

Venezuelan broadcasters say they will continue their programme of opposition.

    Ever since Hugo Chavez became president of Venezuela in 1999, a number of media organisations have been waging a war of words against his government.
     
    Chavez has responded by revoking the licenses of dozens of radio and television stations. But despite the clampdown, several major broadcasters are determined to continue their programme of opposition.
