President Hugo Chavez accused Venezuela's media on Sunday of trying to undermine him and threatened to take swift and stern measures against television networks, radio stations and newspapers that cause trouble. Chavez said privately owned media are inciting hatred among Venezuelans and even conspiring against his government by trying to spur military rebellions and assassinations attempts. He appeared to be directing his comments at Globovision - the last TV channel broadcast on the regular airwaves that remains fiercely critical of the government. The socialist leader said media outlets would "get a surprise" if such actions continue. "You are playing with fire, manipulating, inciting hate and much more. All of you: television networks, radio stations, papers," Chavez said during his weekly television and radio program, "Hello President."
