Spin? Slant? Fear?

The shrub has been having a rough ride during his tour of South America, what with the thousands of demonstrators in each country, and Hugo Chavez dogging him. The BBC and CBC both cover Chavez's comments on the shrub and Amerika. Interesting how the Beeb is superficially harsher in its coverage, while the CBC is gentler on Bush, but adds more of Chavez's comments--which are far harsher than the one's in the Beeb report. I suspect this might reflect the underlying Canadian attitude towards Amerika: the visible appeasement of the bully masking a very critical and angry attitude.
