There were two huge demonstrations in Venezuela this week. The Thursday demonstration called on President Chavez to resign, the Sunday demonstation suppported him. Both had hundreds of thousands of people.
Look at how Reuters “reported” these events.
The Anti-Chavez demonstration

CARACAS, Venezuela, Oct 10 (Reuters) – Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans clamored Thursday for President Hugo Chavez to resign or call elections, and a top military chief denounced discontent in the leftist leader’s armed forces.

The Pro-Chavez demonstration

CARACAS, Venezuela (Reuters) – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, buoyed by a huge show of support from hundreds of thousands of fanatical followers, mocked opposition demands for him to quit on Sunday and vowed to press ahead unswervingly with his self-proclaimed “revolution.”

Why is one side “fanatical” and the other side isn’t? Why does one side have a “self-proclaimed” goal and the other doesn’t? Why does Reuters call this “reporting” and not an “editorial”?
