President Hugo Chávez said his government would not renew the license of  
RCTV, Radio Caracas Televisión, a private station known for opposing his  
policies. The press freedom group Reporters Without Borders expressed concern  this 
month that not renewing RCTV’s license when it expires in March could  curtail 
editorial diversity in _Venezuela_ 
(http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/international/countriesandterritories/venezuela/index.html?inline=nyt-geo) , where 
newspapers and television stations  supporting Mr. Chávez have grown more 
powerful in recent years. The tension  between Mr. Chávez and some private media 
groups dates from their tacit approval  of a coup that briefly ousted him in 
2002. “There will be no new concession for  that coup-plotting television channel 
named Radio Caracas Televisión,” Mr.  Chávez said.
