Latin Pulse 08/16/13
The death of Hugo Chavez is again under the microscope this week as Latin Pulse looks at conspiracy theories in Latin America. The program includes an interview with a medical expert about allegations Chavez was poisoned. The discussion also delves into how populist leaders sometimes use conspiracy theories to communicate and connect with their supporters. The news segment of the program covers the visit of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to South America and how countries there confronted him with their negative reactions to the espionage programs unveiled by Edward Snowden, a former contractor working for U.S. intelligence agencies.
