I want to become intimately familiar with Venezuelan politics; what should I read?

I used to live in Caracas, but stopped following events there sometime in 2003 because of the headaches involved in figuring out whether I even trusted what I was reading. So I have a lot of catching up to do.
I know what the main newspapers and tv stations there are. I don't know what bloggers and columnists are out there, nor what books have been published. What should I read? Who should I keep tabs on? Both English and Spanish resources are fine, both chavista and opposition positions are fine.
(Oh, and another thing - is there a way to receive some sort of alert when an article about Venezuela or Chavez is published in mainstream media like the Washington Post or whatever?)
