President Hugo Chavez threatened Saturday to terminate the broadcast licenses of private media outlets seen as sowing unrest in Venezuela, just days after he yanked the nation's oldest private TV station off the air. "In the case of the old bourgeois channel (RCTV), we were quite patient and waited for its concession to end, but don't anybody believe that it will always be like that.

The comments were made to thousands of red-clad supporters who at times chanted, "It's your turn next, Globovision!" in reference to the only major opposition-aligned TV channel remaining in the country.
