Sep 29th 2009 5:39PM What happened with the Simpsons was that the government asked a TV station not to show it during hours that children may be watching. So the station announced that they were forbidden by law to show the Simpsons as a way to score points against Chávez, then when the hubbub had died down they merely moved it into a different timeslot as they had always planned to.
A similar thing seems to be happening here. There's really no reliable evidence that Family Guy is going to be banned. From reading the original sources of this, it's clear that El Aissami was criticizing the United States for labeling Venezuela as a "drug state" (which has been done repeatedly in the past) while its cultural products promote the use of drugs. You can all retire from your moral outrage against dictatorial socialism now. :)
