Sure, why not? Hugo Chavez wins Argentine journalism award
A true fighter for press freedom? He’s received the Rodolfo Walsh Prize from the Argentinian University of La Plata, so awarded for “unquestionable and authentic commitment to support the freedom of peoples.” Chavez has, as the university points out, created a broad public news outlet, but he’s also tightly muzzled and repressed independent and private media, making this award pretty controversial. Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional gives a dire take: “That a South American university doesn’t know about this grave  situation and dares to honor this military leader with the Rodolfo Walsh  Prize says much about the destruction of values that the Kirchners have  imposed on the Argentine nation. Walsh was a victim of military  repression and his example is now stained absurdly.” (photo via nicogenin on Flickr) source
