Bolivia’s press – From chickens to vuvuzelas

Some stories speak for themselves:
Bolivian president Evo Morales jokingly referred to members of the press as “South African vuvuzelas” when they urged him to grant interviews from the doors of the presidential palace in La Paz.

“You guys aren’t chickens on a farm but are South African vuvuzelas,” said the president laughing in comparing the media to the noisy, high-pitched instrument…

Morales previously branded the press as “chickens on a farm” comparing the noise made by the animals with the loud and frequent interruptions during his press conferences.
