Different perspectives on Venezuela

Typical headline in a corporate newspaper:
Venezuela nationalizes telecommunications, power companies
Headline from Prensa Latina:
Venezuela Recovers Social Property
Interestingly enough, the Prensa Latina headline is closer to the truth, even free of any political perspective. The Miami Herald article cited above quotes Chavez as saying, "all of that which was privatized, nationalize it," and notes that "The eletricity and telecommunications companies were sold to private owners before Chávez was first elected in 1998." Thus "renationalizes" would actually be the correct headline (or actually "to renationalize"; it hasn't happened yet).
