Jon Voight is at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. this week and the veteran actor is using his appearance as an opportunity to rail against Barack Obama, the current administration and the media.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/28/jon-voight-obama-administration-media-control_n_1837409.html
"They're very good at propaganda," Voight told Virginia delegation members at a breakfast on Monday. "[Obama's] not good at anything else, but he's very good at propaganda. He's learned from masters of propaganda."
Voight failed to mention which exactly which "masters" he felt Obama and his staff had learned from, but later in his speech did reference Hugo Chavez, who he mistakenly called Cesar Chavez, the co-founder of the National Farm Workers Association.
“[T]his media has been overtaken by this administration in no less a way that Cesar [sic] Chavez has taken over the media in Venezuela. It's as strong as that," Voight said.
