Nice Deb has a roundup of links on the latest rumor on Hugo Chavez, which was started by a Wikileaks AR tweet,
Don’t believe it.
1. There is absolutely no evidence to support this rumor.
2. Any of you who believe the rumor are being punked.

Be on the lookout for tantalizing tips. Do not take the first level of verification as authoritative, because they’re putting enough thought into this at least pass the first level.
