    ...deny broadcast licenses to "critics" who backed the 2002 coup.

      this is a total cover.  CHavez was booting opponents off the air from the instant he took over in the 1990s.  And of the ones for which that is the excuse, mostly its a matter of the fact that they didn't report in a sufficiently pro-Chavez manner and that's what constituted "backing" the coup.  This myth needs to go away now.

      Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion
